I am the biggest roller coaster fanatic in the world, well maybe not the world but definately in my school. My philosophy is the faster, the higher, the better.

1. Goliath Fast, tall, smooth, and fun.

click this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goliath_%28Six_Flags_Over_Georgia%29


2. THE INCREDIBLE HULK *was voted the best roller coaster in the U.S. by discover channel viewers in 1999* top speed 67mph, height 110 ft., I know these are average stats but what makes it my favorite is its acceration of 0 to 40 mph in 2 secs.! into a modified barrel roll, it is located at Islands of Adventure in Orlando Florida

3. De Javu Self-explanitory

Meh. The only roller coasters I've been on were the ones at Kennywood.

THE INCREDIBLE HULK is so awesome
and i also like the one... i THINK its called like Twin Dragons? or Dueling Dragons... O_o? anyway! its also in Island of adventure. Its the one where your given a choice, its either "fire Dragon" or "ice dragon" and well they divide the people to the dragons tey want and ^-^ you ride on a rollercoaster dragon and both roller coasters are going at the same time so they make you belive your gonna crash against the other roller coaster, funnes :3

Alton Towers has the Oblivion. the best frickin ride ever! looks incredible as well. even though i'm afraid of heights i still appreciated the rush it gave me .

basically u sit in in a row of seats (i think bout 20 per drop) go agonisingly slowly up up and up, then stop, the whole thing tilts down and for about a minute all you can see is this big dark mouth steaming, while you feel like ur gonna free drop with nothing to hold you but the seat and ur friend's hand crushing urs. then you dive. i was nearly crying by the end of it. my hand was crushed and i laughed hysterically.

and i went home with a 'I Survived Oblivion' badge.

edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oblivion_%28roller_coaster%29 seems sheikra and oblivion are basically the same, they even share the maker....

Yep. Well, I like them at least. I've never been to any other theme park, so I'm not sure how they compare to others.

Currently, there are five roller coasters there:
Racer: It's a wooden roller coaster that was first built in 1910. It has two separate tracks where the cars race each other.

Jack Rabbit: Another wooden roller coaster. This one was built in 1926. There's one part that dips and makes it feel as though you're actually lifting off the track.

Thunderbolt: The last of the wooden roller coasters. It was built in 1924. This was actually the very first roller coaster I ever went on and because of that, it will always be my favorite. :)

Exterminator: It's an indoor one and the whole theme of it deals with giant rats that fuck up Kennywood's electric system. It's an okay roller coaster, though it's definitely not worth the wait. :/ The line is insanely long.

Phantom's Revenge: This is by far the most popular roller coaster at Kennywood. It currently holds the record as the world's 7th fastest roller coaster. The line is absolutely ridiculous. A normal wait is roughly 2 hours.

The incredible hulk is overrated.
have not tried the sheikra yet.
besides that one and the new Everest @ Disney, I have been in all the decent rollercoasters in FL, got bored and tried skydiving (chickened out) but I'll try again

I'm not sure if that was just in response to me or not, but here are the links to the ones I mentioned:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racer_%28Kennywood%29 Racer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Rabbit_%28Kennywood%29 Jack Rabbit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbolt_%28Kennywood%29 Thunderbolt
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exterminator_%28roller_coaster%29 Exterminator
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom%27s_Revenge Phantom's Revenge

And for those of you who decide to visit Kennywood one day, avoid Noah's Ark. That's some creepy shit. ._.

^mauz, hun if u like adrenaline i don't know why you turned down skydiving.

i have to mention Nemesis from alton towers as well, scariest sh*t in existence. i had my eyes closed the whole freaking time. that thing had more twist and turns than a whole season of Corrie.
