I have ridden 70 coasters, which I'm sure isn't as many as some of you but for some reason I am totally completely obsessed with Millennium Force. It will always be my #1 coaster for the rest of my life.
I have been on Dragster 8 times. It is very fun, quite an adrenaline rush, nothing compares to the launch, the drop is cool, not too scary though, but the ride is short. Too short. (You may think I'm weird)
What ride do I always go to first on my annual trip to the point? The Force
What ride is always on the Early Ride Joe Cool Status board in the hotel lobby? The Force
What ride always thrills me and brings back memories? The Force
I think its partially because, unlike older rides I rode which I can't really remember, like Viper at Darien Lake when I was 5, Millennium Force was a record breaking coaster I remember clearly. I remember walking in the station, hearing "Welcome to Millennium Force" for the first time. For the 4 times I've been since it opened, I'm always excited to ride it. I was so excited to ride it when I went again in 2002, my first visit since 2000. Didn't let me down. I ran so hard to the entrance when
they opened the Wicked Twister gate. It's always been there lol. Especially on my last ride a couple weeks ago. I had ridden Dragster a 1/2 hour before and on the way back down I got a sharp pain in my head, which I started having once I rode Magnum. I was terrified that I would die on MF. Call me crazy but I seriously thought I had a blood clot. My friend told me I was fine and I would be mad at myself if I couldn't ride but for 45 minutes I stared at the lift hill, it all its glory, going from colors to insane strobel lighting, finally boarding the train, thinking I'd be in the ER momentarily. Finally the famous words "Clear riders for your safety please keep your hands down and inside the train at all times and enjoy your record breaking ride on Millennium Force" Move forward a bit, and then take off into the sky. The drop was amazing and the dreaded G's through the first turn were about to come. Sharp pain in my head like on Dragster and Maggie? Nope nothing! I was so happy! I had a smile on my face the rest of the ride, and the speed was incredible, finally onto the last turn the fireworks from the lazer show went off right as we went over the final overbank. It was the most amazing ride of my life and it will always be my #1.
Sorry if I was too descriptive, but does anyone have any obsessions with a certain coaster like I do?

Glad you like MF, but this thread needs to end.
(and if the intention was to be a 'favorites' thread - you'll need to learn to disguise it better ;) )
