  1. Triple Play (always my favorite as a kid)

  3. Willard's Wizzer
  4. Tidal Wave
  5. Can I say just all the theming in the park?
  6. Not a ride, but I really miss Ye Old Rootbeer Shoppe (or whatever it was called--it was just around the corner from the Wizzer; I really miss the yummy 5¢ root beer on a hot summer day)
