A good coaster but short lines.

What coaster do you consider a definite ride over and over again but has a short line even on busy days? Obviously its not popular to the masses but you personally like it. I have always liked Shockwave at SFGAm. Since I am tall(even though the leg room can be a challenge), my head is well above the OTSR restraints so I dont experience the headbanging like alot of others do. When I venture to this coaster I love the fact of short lines and being able to ride quite a bit in a short period of time. What is your likable coaster with a short wait?

The Outlaw at Adventureland is a walk on 24 hours a day, but if you want the front, the better half of the train, you'll have to wait for about 2 or 3 cycles.

I've always felt that way about Gemini, but an argument could be made that the short lines are due to the incredible capacity of the ride.

Gemini and Duelling dragons almost always have no lines and they are both good coasters. Vortex at PKI is good and usually has a fairly short wait on busy days (~20 min.)

Definitely Gemini. Awesome ride. I usually ride it at least 5-6 times every time I'm at CP. DD did have a short line when I was at IOA. I managed to get 2 rides on each side, plus 2 rides on Hulk and Spiderman, did a bunch of other stuff in the park, and I only stayed 'till 3:30!

I fell that way about Laser and Nessie. When I go to these parks I ride these coasters 10+ times. Steel Force usually has lttle or no line too. I've ridden it 25 times in a evening. Dorney never seems to have really long lines when I go.

Hurler at Carowinds never has much of a line. That is probably due to the long queue you have to walk through and the quick loading times.

Dueling Dragons is the best coaster in Florida IMO, yet I will be riding Kraken in a few days, as I have arrived in Florida last night, and Dueling Dragons always has a short line, never more than 20 minutes.

I would say Shivering Timbers but on the weekends its line can get up to 20 to 30 minutes. Its still not a long wait but for Mich. Adventure that is quite a while. During the week though it is pretty much a walk on or you have to wait 1 or 2 cycles. Last year I was able to ride it on a Monday in June, 21 times in about a 2 1/2 hour time frame. Could have gone for more but I was starting to get a headache. :)

I know many people will disagree with me on this one, but I don't care. I think the Demon at SFGAm is a GREAT ride(IMO), and it never has long lines. One time, me and my friends got on it 6 times in 1/2 hour. I think this ride is way underrated.

Nemesis never has a line, and it's the greatest inverted coaster ever built.
