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?

How old is that list? I can see it being up there at the time it was built, but since then there have been so many more coasters that easily top that...you just have to leave the midwest to find 'em.

Rode Orient Express once - really liked it. My favorite current coaster is Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It has two drops of greater than 90 degrees. Sons of bitches actually hang you 160 feet off the ground with the coaster dangling six degrees past vertical for about ten seconds then drop your ass. It's a rush, especially from the front and center seat. The car is only three rows deep but about 11 seats wide so out on the edge you aren't even looking down at track.

Shock Wave (SF over Texas) Because its a great, smooth ride that's damn near as old as I am. Been riding it for years.

Mr. Freeze (SF over Texas) Altogether my favorite theme park ride right now.

I really like Silver Dollar City for that region. Its a very well kept up family park.
spinning dragons is a terrible roller coaster.

and I can't believe WOF replaced the ZZ coaster w/ that POS Boomerang. I won't even waste my time waiting in line for that coaster. what a god damn disappointing decision by WOF to do that. At least on the ZZ that's a kickass tunnel and you can cop a feel on your gf if you want and blame it on you being scared of the dark or some shit.

I really like the Patriot a lot, still would have liked to have WOF keep the Orient Express and the Patriot be put somewhere else because that (OE) was badass very underrated coaster IMO.

The Boomerang....what a waste JFC.

Not that old. June 2011.

That is the one coaster I don't agree with on that list that I have rode on.

Yea, Spinning Dragons and Boomerang are clone type rides you can find at lots of other parks around the country. At least Zinger and Orient were unique.

Orient Express is my all time favorite and probably always will be. The Joyland Rollercoaster is a good one too. Though its a mild coaster, Fire In The Hole at SDC will always be a favorite as well. I cannot wait to ride the new wooden coaster at SDC, Outlaw Run I think its called, that looks just plain awesome. For those that love the Orient Express, if you are ever in the Smokey Hills in Tennessee, visit Dollywood and ride the Tennessee Tornado, its not the same as the OE but does have some smiliarities.

It definitely had the fear aspect - in that you were afraid you were going to run into another car, the rail, or the whole thing was just going to fall apart at any minute.

There is an awesome video on YouTube of a compluter replica with one of the songs from The Good The Bad The Ugly. Not the main theme but from the same artist. Ill have to post the link when I get home as I cannot access YouTube here, but it just makes me want to ride it even more.

Did they sell that coaster to the Kansas State Fair? There was one just like that in the 80s and early 90s, Im not sure if they still have it, I have not been there since then.
