If you're looking for a good hyper SFA's got one,as well as a decent out & back woodie in wild one....too bad the same can't be said for their SLC.

PKD's got some good wood as well,just stay far away from hurler's nothing but a piece of firewood & is not worth wasting the time or effort riding even if it's a walk on.

rollergator's avatar ^ ROFL! Yes, SFA has an SLC...they all stink!

Nonetheless, the park still has one of the best wood/steel combinations *anywhere*....and I don't think that highly of flying coasters....but considering Hogarth mentioned hypercoasters, I'd say SFA's is one of the best... :)

Hard to believe that in ALL the years since the first RoS rides were erected in '99-'00, SFI went on a buying/building SPREE that landed the company over $2*billion* in debt....and never thought of building more of THOSE?!??

I'm Sorry I didn't see the post about his "Neurological Concerns". If Woodies are a little too Intense may I suggest my current Home State of FLORIDA. We have some of the best Steel here in Central Florida, ranging from "Mild" to "Wild" at Universal Studios, Sea World, Busch Gardens, Cypress gardens and, of course "The Mouse House" ;)

Just be sure to bring along plenty of "Mad Money" as going to these parks is going to Cost You!

BatwingFan, you can get some good air on Hurler and it is not that rough. But what can you expect from someone who is a fan of Batwing? ;)

I know that many people here are going to push the woodies and while normally I agree that that is often the way to go, for a brand new enthusiast you will probably prefer steel for a while. Having said that, The Voyage at Holiday World is the bomb even for those who like steel.

A good coaster trip could be to Virgina for Busch Gardens, Kings Dominion, and up into Maryland for Six Flags America. You will get some very good steel, some somewhat better than average wood, and some interesting novelties with that trip.

Another good trip would be over to eastern PA and NJ for Hershey Park, Dorney Park, and Six Flags Great Adventure.

It is exciting to be new to these thrills. I hope you have a great time wherever you go.
