    Your favorite Amusement Park Ride?

    List your favorite amusement/carnival/fair ride or attraction.

    For me it's the Scream Machine located at Six Flags Over Georgia. Something about a throwback rollercoaster made of wood and rails.



    As a child the Georgia Fair came to Lakewood Park in Atlanta. The Himalaya was scary. It was no so much the ride as the fact that the man on the contol lever seemed to be a wino who hated children. His intent was to spin you into a frenzy.

    Would you like a dream with that?

    Well I don't visit fairs or carnivals anymore as the rides aren't that thrilling but the people that assemble and run them are f'ing frightening. Back in the day though I really loved the gravitron and the ********** (?) though that one was always a little tight on the privates.
    I do enjoy theme park rides but unfortunately the thrill seeker in me is always disappointed. The rides never last long enough or go fast enough etcetera.
    I hope to make it to six flags georgia soon and hopefully they'll have some worthwhile coasters.
    Leave your treadmill power trip behind.

    I love the old wooden coasters too! But I hate a 'Wild Mouse', they scare the @@@@ out of me.

    King's Island: "The Beast"

    It's as old as I am, and it's still an amazing ride. You owe it to yourself to do the first ride at night.

    And yes, that is right in the middle of a 35 acre forest.

    Space Mountain, Disneyland. It's the part about it being in the dark that appeals to me.
