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?

As an ACE member (American Coaster Enthusiasts), I would easily have put the Orient Express in my top 3. I fought hard with Worlds of Fun to not tear it down, and still think they were stupid for doing so.

Found the preview video

Yea, like i mentioned before, not only were Zinger and Orient great rides, but they were original and unique. Unlike the boring clones that replaced them.

Every coaster seems to leave me wanting more, faster, twistier, hairpinnier, . . . MORE!!

The Orient had flaws fore and aft. In the front you got no speed on the first hill as the rest of the coaster was holding you back. In the back, you got the super fast first hill, but the ride flung you around like a rag doll on the curves at the end, not in an exciting way, in a hematoma way.

Best time I had recently was catching The Hulk at Six Flags Mid-Am right after they re-opened it following a thunder storm. People weren't aware right away, and we got to ride it 3x in a row before substantial lines started forming [usually it's like a 45 minute wait for 1 ride].

Best all-time, for the time in question, was when I was finally tall enough to get away from the kiddie rides at WoF, at 4-5-6 somewhere in there I was finally tall enough to ride the Schussboomer [how many KC fossils remember that little ditty?]. Well I hopped off that sucker giggling my ass off, sprinted to the exit, sprinted up the entrance, weaved through the columns for the line and hopped right back on. Ended up closing the night out [this was one of those employer provided 'WoF nights' from 6-midnight or something] riding the Schussboomer 25-30 times in a row, with mom and dad looking on amused at their crazy kid. Thinking back, I think dad probably rode most of those along with me out of safety/obligation. Me? . . . I was in my own world.

I remember it. I donít think I ever rode it more than once or twice? They took it out just as I was starting to get into rides. How about the Screamroller and the EXT stand up coaster?

Hey I very faintly remember a roller coaster from when I was little. It was at worlds of fun near where Timber Wolf is. I think it was white colored. What was that one? I'm pulling memories from when I was like 5 so forgive me.

I remember when I was a little kid I tried to ride it and the shoulder pads were on the sides of my head. I got a pretty good headache that day lol.

Way back in the olden days (Get Off My Lawn) - 70's, I rode the Revolution at Magic Mountain the day it opened. It was the first loop roller coaster out and we were stoked. I have ridden much better since but the first loop ride will always be my favorite

For those who have never rode Millenium Force (Cedar Point, Sandusky OH)that are from the KC area.

Take the Mamba.....add 100ft (300ft compared to Mamba's 200ft first drop) to the first couple drops, and add about 25mph (95mph compared to Mamba's 70mph) to the speed and you get Millenium Force

We rode it at night....and it was badass.

The Screamroller was the EXT before they fitted it with the standup harnesses. IIRC, they were touting it as the first upside down coaster [don't know if it was an accurate claim or not, I think it debuted in 1976, might've been '75]. It was immediately below the promenade for all the 'games of chance' [Uncle Sam's Skeeball Hall, etc]. Between those and the Wobble Wheel.

TimberWolf was/is further out to the outskirts of the park.


EDIT: Anyone here actually ride the Sky Hi? Didn't it leave the park under some kind of dark cloud?
