I went to an amusement park with the honor students from my 9th grade class. The rollercoasters weren't that big but they were fun to ride on.

No one believed that I was enjoying myself as I didn't scream and hoop on the rides though...my algebra teacher told me I needed to loosen up, that put a damper on my day...but I think my favorite ride was called "The Cheetah" but I could be wrong.

Oh, GOD NO. I went on Space Mountain (according to my friends an incredibly tame ride) and hated it. I couldn't imagine what I would do if I went to Six Flags or something.. X2 gives me chills just watching its commercial.

If you consider the Indiana Jones one at Disneyland a rollercoaster, then yes. Just that one ride.

On another note, I love Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.

My favorite so far is Medusa from Six Flags. It was one of the best. At first glance, it seems all twisty and scary and crap like that, but when u ride it, its another story. All those twists and crazy loops and turns are actually spaced out nicely in intervals that let you enjoy the ride, not make your stomach go sick on you. Definitely my favorite.

(BTW, the dark knight coaster sucked really bad.)

I hate the waiting for rollercoasters. The lines are the worst when they are like 3 hours long and they show you videos of people screaming their heads off haha.
I've been on two rides people have died on.. which can't be good..

I've been on one rollercoaster, at Disneyland, and a few years later a girl died in the same ride...
Nothing happened with the ride, she was so scared and died... Poor girl

BTW, the rollercoaster is Rock'n'Roller Coaster avec Aerosmith (this is a game, so you can see the ride without screams and stuff)

I wouldn't mind going to Paris. But, no. I meant the one in California, USA. Looking at the specs for Mission 2, it looks even scarier!

Looking at the Indiana Jones ride in Paris, it looks even more scary. I don't remember any inversions in the Disneyland (Anaheim) one!

If you live in the USA, you can't call yourself a coaster enthusiast until you go to Cedar Point.

The Millennium Force (310 feet, 90-120MPH) is fantastic, and the Magnum XL200 (210 feet, 60-70MPH) is good as well.

The Millennium Force is such a draw that they won't let you choose where to sit. (When it opened in 2000, the wait to ride in the front car was 8 hours.) I was lucky and got randomly assigned to the front car. Holy shit! That thing was awesome.

If you like to see the coaster, the front sit is awesome!

But if you want more "action", the last sit is the best... Trust me!

I like both

The only bad part about being in the front seat is getting hit in the face by bugs.

They both are good. Sometimes the best seat is in the middle because you can ride more frequently.

I friggin' love roller coasters. I live near King's Island (ohio), and I go there at least once a year. My favorite ride there is The Beast. It's the world's longest wooden roller coaster. I've memorized every turn of that thing, and it will remain my favorite coaster forever.

The Beast:


And as IBNobody said, Cedar Point is amazing. I've only been there once, but we went for the opening of Millenium Force. We waited 4 hours for that one, AND got the front seat! It's seriously like flying. Fast, smooth, and a long ride. Love it.

Millennium Force:
