The wife and I just got back from Cedar Point and then Kings Island. We went with some friends for a summer ending mini vacation. We rode just about everything you can ride. The one thing I can't ride is the Mantis at Cedar Point. It's a stand up coaster. After they close this year it will be torn down. So it sucks I can't ride that one ever again. Their Gatekepper and Raptor coasters are cool but Millennium force is their best I think.

Kings Island has a kick ass new coaster the Banshee. That coaster was awesome. If you live near Ohio and like coasters get to Kings Island and ride it. Plus the Beast is always fun. Even us older people can have some fun too.

I passed Kings Island two days ago on my way to our Columbus dropyard. It looks like fun :)

I think the last time I went on a roller coaster was back in 1996, when I went to Kings Dominion in Williamsburg, VA :oops:

I enjoy some roller coasters, I have never been to Six Flags Magic Mountain and its several hours away from me. One day, I will go there and ride some of their extreme rides.

I think my favorite of all the is The Beast. It just goes on and on. Its so long and goes all over the woods. At night Its even better. We rode it like 7 times. Check this video out.

I watched that Colouss video again. The Beast makes it look like a kids ride. Its 35 years old and still going strong.

I love that hybrid coaster video. Wow!!

i love all roller coasters. i dont really like the sensation from free falls but i do them anyways. the best are the coasters that blast u off. ehilbert which one is the blue coaster at cedar point? it has a kinda square or cube looking track. ive only been there once years ago and remember that being my fav.

After watching both wooden coasters videos and The Beast does look better, I do like going through tunnels and feels like it going faster. But the Twisted Colossus video, omg that looks very fun to ride on, when it gets build.

i guess its a thrill ride and not a coaster but the mission space in EPCOT is amazing! ive been on a million fair type gravatrons but they way disney takes that basic spinning concept and makes you feel like ur blasting off into space with the screen right in front of ur face is the best.

Well there are a few blue ones. Millennium force, the gate keeper and top thrill dragster. Not sure about the square track.

Millennium force is one bad ass coaster. Plus they have the Magnum. Those two steel coasters are fun. I remember when the Magnum first came out. They said when you get to the top you can see Canada on a clear day. They were right. You sure can
