Triple Play (Huss Troika) or Fiddler's Fling (Schwarzkopf Calypso 3) at SFGAm. Depends if I want a gentle ride with a nice breeze, or insane ride with crushing laterals. I learned on the 17th, if you are on the outside on a Calypso, you are having a different kind of fun than on the inside

I personally like (despite the recent accident) the Rainbow at SFEG and whatever other Rainbws there are. I also like the Troika although it does get a bit dull after a few whirls.

Chaos (I pronounce it "chay-oss" not "kay-oss" - it rides better when you say it that way).

Id defiantely go with Chaos but I always enjoyed CP's train. One day I will just go there and ride the train, non stop and see how many interesting people I can strike up conversations with.

The Turtle at Kennywood is fun to ride with other enthusiasts because they all know how to "hump" the turtle. Also, I like Pittfall at Kennywood because I love the weightlessness feeling!

I am not really a flat ride fan and even though I refuse to ride it I would also go with Chaos.But as with flat rides I will actually ride I will probably go with the classics Tilt-A-Whirl and Scrambler.(yes,it's a tie)

Sounds like Kennywood's The Whip was destroyed in severe thunderstorms yesterday, killing one person in the park. http://www.cnn.com/2002/WEATHER/06/01/severe.weather.ap/index.html. While it wasn't the best of flat rides at Kennywood, it sure was a classic.

Kangaroo at Kennywood is my favorite! Paratrooper was good too til it got nailed by a tree yesterday - unknown if they'll be able to rebuild it or the whip

In life you start the same as when you're done. If you lose, you're just where you've begun. If you win, remember what I said, don't quit while you're ahead. Who cares?

I also much enjoyed Kennywood's Kangaroo, it was a very fun ride.

but after my ride yesterday i might have to go with the Top Spin at Lake Compounce

I rode it once and it was lame like always, but then i got off and talked to the operator (not the attendant) and asked that if i ride again, could she give us a real crazy program. She agreed so i went on again and it was awsome. First we did a complete forewards revolution without being held (MASSIVE amounts of airtime and that tingling feeling in your you-know-whats) then we did a complete backwards revolution without being held, also giving the same feeling. Next we did a large backwards flip (then she held us upside down for about 30 seconds) followed by a large forewards flip that ran seemlessly into the half flip then release and somersault to the ground. It then finished off with the usual upside down on the ground thing.

it was a very good ride, very dissorienting.
