Roller Coasters
« on: February 16, 2013, 04:29:32 pm »
Being that I'm in a Universal Studios hotel as I type this, it's not really a surprise I would start this topic.

Who loves the Coasters here and which ones are your favourite? Myself, I'm not a fan of huge rollar coasters. I've been too much of a coward to try Dragon Challenge (formally known as Dueling Dragons) or Rip Ride Rocket. I did however enjoy Revenge of the Mummy, which is sort of similar to Space Mountain at Disney's Magic Kingdom in the sense that you're in the dark for the fast parts. That's about as brave as I get for those rides though haha.

I actually haven't ever been on a roller coaster, mostly because I've always been too scared to ride any of them. Additionally, amusement park rides in general have never been very appealing to me.

I rode a roller coaster for the first time this summer.  My brother told me it was gonna be life changing, and it twas.  It twas.  I screamed, and it scared the piss outta me, but I loved it.  I couldn't get enough of it.  I wanted more, more I SAY!  We shot ourselves up 400 ft. into the air and then fell from the heavens to dangle inside this ball attached to bungie chords.  Amazing.

I. Love. Rollercoasters.

The biggest one ive ridden was "The Intimidator."   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WpNSImh6Z8
the 3rd tallest rollercoaster in North America. 305 feet. I did go temporarily blind at the bottom of the first drop. I think its called "greying out"

 :shock:


the next one on my list to ride is "Top Thrill Dragster" at Cedar Point. I think its 400 feet tall. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbN3NU4hIZg

I went on my first *real* roller coaster this summer.  It was rickety, made of wood, and it started before I could get my seatbelt buckeled... but I loved it!  It was sooo much fun!

I'm not a big fan of them because I am a big chicken  :fox-:P:

But I'll ride any of them so long as I have someone I know riding with me.

I've ridden both, Intimidator 305 is my favorite coaster of all time, and TTD isn't half bad either :D.

I've been a coaster enthusiast for 10 years now about actually!  I have over 100 coaster credits (AKA I've been on 100 different roller coasters) about 148 I believe.

The Spider-Man ride is awesome, and so is Jaws, although it's rare that you'll find a worker that's a decent actor. Another cool one is Rockin' Roller Coaster, though it would be nice if they turned the music down a /teeny/ bit.

Spiderman is awesome, and Jaws used to be awesome (they removed it not too long ago), but they aren't really roller coasters. Rockin' Roller Coaster is a good ride to wait for people on when you don't get on the ride because you can jam to Aerosmith outside XD. Haha

Yes, yes, and more yes.  I will ride any ride at any time.
Remember that smile, the one you wore with such beauty and grace?  Where has it gone?  What has happened to put you in this miserable, lonely place?  Smile for me, even it may be the last time I see.  A picture I will take not for myself, no. A picture for the entire world to embrace the happiness you once shared with me.  Just smile...

I tried to go on a roller coaster once.

I chickened out on the ramp up and got lost in Bush Gardens for a couple hours cuz I ran awaaaay.

Not smart but who knows, I could have died on that thing. Somehow.
It could've happened I swear.

I love roller coasters.  I haven't been that many, though.  There aren't any good ones where I live.  :fox-:P:

Lolnope.

I'll go on minor ones - the highest coaster I've ever been on was about 100 feet high.  But other than that, NOPE.

I wish I wasn't such a chicken. :c I wanna get on big, crazy roller coasters and junk. :c
But I really, really don't like that flippy feeling in my stomach. Dx
I think the very last one I was on was Steel Venom, and that was scary~! ;w;

Nope. To be honest, I'm not exactly an enormous fan of roller coaster or even theme parks in general. They can be fun but they're not among my favourite places to be. When I do find myself at a theme park or fair, I only go on all of the mildest of rides, and usually pass on the more intense ones. Sometimes just watching them makes me feel queasy.
