Growing up in KC, my first ever roller coaster was Zambezi at night. That was terrifying at 9 years old. I eventually got the courage to do the Orient Express and enjoyed it. I was probably one of a few thousand to actually ride the stand up 'only in the nation' EXT one time. The wait was absurd, but at least I could say I did it. The Timber Wolf was new just before I left KC.
Got to go to Magic Mountain in CA back in the late 80's...when the Ninja was brand new, but I have to say my favorite there was probably the Colossus. Classic old woody.
Kings Dominion in VA has some pretty good coasters, and my favorite was The Volcano, launching coaster.
At Hollywood Studios, really enjoyed Aerosmith and Tower of Terror (although the tower was not really a coaster)
I'd really like to go to Cedar Point some day...ride Top Thrill and Millenium Force.
This is a must. I went last summer with my softball team.
