X's first drop, front row. Imagine, you're sitting upright 200 feet above the ground, then suddenly, your seat rotates very quickly 90 degrees forward, and WHAM! You're looking straight down at the ground with NOTHING below you - not even track. You freefall straight down about half way, and then your seat rotates again 90 degrees forward so that you're freefalling...upsidown. The pullout of the drop sends you on your back at the bottom. Incredible. One of the scarriest sections of track on any coaster that I've ever been on.
OMG, the first time I rode the Pittfall at kennywood park. I never been so ****ing scared of my life. The way it takes u up to the top and leaves u there for a few seconds and the airtime u get coming down that 250 ft. tower. A awesome ride.
Also I would say Sky coaster at kennywood park. I was scared out of my wits when they pulled me and my brother up to the top an the way u come down. What made me even more scared was while we were being pulled up, people were waving at us. That made me extremely nervous. people asked me when I got off the ride, that I looked like I was gonna throw up. It was still fun even though I'll broke when I want 2 ride it again. *** This post was edited by Derrick Whitsett 6/1/2003 11:21:36 PM ***
The first drop of S:RoS at SFNE in the front seat. The floater air as you wait for the rest of the train to descend the pinnacle of the lift hill is amazing, you feel like your gonna fall out of your seat. It is also incredible becaust the drop is right next to the Connecticut River and has a mist-filled tunnel at the bottom...pure bliss!
The long and uncomfortably angled ride into the Beast's tunnelled helix has got to be the Most exhilarating experience for me. It always seems to squeeze an unaturially long scream out of me for what seems to be forever.
I've got to agree about MFs 300 foot drop. Especially if it is raining after a hot day.
I've allways though of Hershyparks Wildcat to be exhilarating. It doesn't give you a chance to prepare for the next turn or drop.
The launches on V:TBC definately. The Wildcat's (HP) numerous heachoppers and unexpected times of ejector air is crazy.
The Great Bears first drop is the most exhilarating that I've experienced. Diving on Comet Hollow and the footchopper... it's awesome :) ------------------ "If we knew how safe roller coasters were, we'd lose their thrill" - Daniel Keller
Derrick, im surprised you didn't say jackrabbits dbl drop! i love it , ive been riding it since i was 4 (i was a tall kid) and that drop gets me every time........so much air......so fast....haha ok ill stop.
Hanging between the restraint and the seat in the next to last row on Wildfire on te first drop. The bunny hills, lateral G's, and the last row at night on the first hill going into the supports on Ozark Wildcat. The end of Texas Giant when it isn't at it's worse.

3. Big Shot night ride in Vegas (nothing like seeing the strip from 1000 ft+ in the air)
4. Magnum at night without trims in the last car, first seat
5. Wildcat with 4th of July fireworks exploding all around you
6. E-ticket night at the Magic Kingdom (after not being there for ten years) 3 Space Mountain Rides in 15 min, 3 spins on Buzz Lightyear, 1 Alien Encounter Trip, 3 Big Thunder Mountain rides, 1 Pirate ride, 2 (without getting off) rides on Splash Mountain and finally hitting Main Street as the Castle Goodbye "Show" starts excellent.
7. Hypersonic accelerate to 80 mph in 1.8 sec
8. Big Bad Wolf front car at night
9. Tower of Terror (feeling like you are attached to a spring during the multiple drops)
10. As a kindergardener rideing Lockness Monster exactly at midnight, in the front car, last train of night.
------------------ Summer 03-CP, HP, Canobie, SFNE, SFWOA, and SFGAm.
l. The double dip on the Jackrabbit. It was my first out of body experience as a kid and all these years later it remains my purest, most exhilirating sensation on any ride anywhere. I look forward to it all year. 2. Coming around the turns neck and neck on KW's Original Racers (not the imitation racers at other parks). 3. The first drop, and the Potato Patch Turn and drop back into the ravine on Thunderbolt. 4. The helix on Beast. 5. The drop-reversal-bunny hop runouts on Thunder Run. The designers squeezed more excitement from a mostly horizontal layout than any other coaster anywhere.
