Thunderbolt at Kennywood, not only as the Pippen, but also in the first year AS the Thunderbolt. Apparently there was a bunny hill in the infamous bowl that was taken out after a year. I'd have loved to try that...

I'd have to go with the CYCLONE at Crystal Beach in Ontario (Near Buffalo, New York). It was the most terrifying and infamous coaster of the 1920's. It had a wood track with a steel supporting structure and was the only roller coaster in history where their was a nurse stationed at the end of the ride due to the uncountable amount of times people got their ribs broken and arms cracked. The insurance companies made Crystal Beach station a nurse on duty due to the many injuries. The Cyclone's twisting, terrifying, and plunging track makes it known as the most terrifying, brutal and infamous coaster to this day. I would love to wrestle that baby!!!!! That would be the most exciting day of my life.
