Dragster is awesome! I love it. Been on it 4 or 5 times.

My other favorites are Millenium Force, Raptor, and Wicked Twister.

You guys can have the wooden coasters. They're aweful. I can't handle the shaking and jolting.

i agree, the wooden ones are rough to ride. Wicked twister is awesome. only been once though. it was closed last time i was there though. the best ride i've had was probibly the Rapter at night sitting front car with my sunglasses on to keep bugs out of my eyes.

anyone ever had Top Thrill go backwards on them? i've seen it happen a bunch of times with no one on it (test fire) and they wouldn't run it that day... a little nervious about that.

Well, I did say that it had been a long, long time....

So long ago that those other rides didn't exist, lol.

Wooden roller coasters are the best. The gaps and creaks are what adds to the fear of riding a coaster. I think it'* called the Grizzly Run in Knobels PA. THAT was a scary roller coaster.
Another one that scared the hell out of me was the one in Six Flags D.C., called Face Off.

well if the line is short enough... deffinately Millenium Force is one i like.

I will never be able to ride Top Thrill Dragster though, the last time i was there it broke during mid ride and the people who were on it got shot up to the top then fell back down backwards ... made me never want to ride it.

I love Ceader Point.

I got a season pass. I only live a short distance from CP. We go there quite a bit.

yup, i've seen it happen empty before... doesn't look too cool going that way... i've been told by the people that run those rides that if you put your hands up that the drag created by you is enough to slow the train so that it doesn't make the creast.
