Favorite Roller Coaster of all time?

I'd have to say the Orient Express is my favorite of all time. I rode it for the first time in 1980 when I was 8 years old. I still have a t-shirt and some old pics somewhere of it. Great ride. I have been to many amusement parks around the USA as well. What are some of yours?

Awesome, I wasn't much older when I rode that. My son is about that age so soon he will be able to ride the better coasters, cannot wait for that.

I have to say that the Loch Ness Monster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg is my favorite. It is an old but a good one. Also, if the ride operators time it right they can get both cars going through the loops at the same time.

Apollos Chariot is great for the out of seat hang time. The new one, Verbolten, was perhaps the smoothest launch coaster I have been on.

Volcano and Twilight Zone at Kings Dominion near Richmond were pretty good. I haven't been there for almost a decade. The last time I was Kings Dominion was kind of a dump. Hopefully, Cedar Fair cleaned it up.

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.

My man!

I mentioned Apollo's Chariot earlier but didn't mention why I liked it. You hit the nail on the head. It is a super smooth ride.

Millenium Force is my hands down favorite but I can't wait to ride this bad boy in July. Both at Cedar Point.

We rode Firehawk at Kings Island. It was OK, but nothing to wet your pants about.

LOL! Same with my dad and I. He would (grudgingly) take me to WOF every summer and I was a coaster freak. For him it was an obligation, for me it was like going to the moon for a day. I only hope it's 1/2 as much fun for my son now. He gets to do so much other really amazing stuff, I don't know if his experience at the parks is as awesome as it was for me.

That being said, one way or the other we're going to Cedar Point this summer.. and praying for one of those days where it's supposed to rain (or actually does) and no one shows up

When I say my son gets to do some cool stuff.. here's his latest ride. 125cc water cooled 2 stroke, about 26hp at 320# with driver:
