3. raging bull (front seat)
4. great drop (anywhere my feet stay on)

1) Turn of the Century! I still enjoy it as The Demon but not quite as much. Turn of the Century was the first big coaster I ever rode, back in October of '77. Great, great memories.

2) Raging Bull. Gotta love that first drop!

3) Viper. This is a great coaster!

4) American Eagle. Although I've always felt the helix was wasted space and ride time, I do enjoy this one--particularly backwards!

5) Willard's Whizzer. Call me old school but this is a fun ride.

1) Goliath
2) Shockwave
3) Raging Bull
4) Batman
5) Iron Wolf

Both Shockwave and Iron Wolf would've rated higher had they not hurt me as much. :lol:

Hmmm ... for me this would have to be:

1. Shockwave
2. American Eagle
3. Raging Bull
4. Demon
5. Tidal Wave

I still miss Shockwave. If Arrow had only discovered the optimized track layout used on Viper at SFMM sooner, all of the 7-looper triplets might still be around.
