Probably SOB @ night. That has to be the scariest thing to ride it at night, and through Vortex's corkscrews...everytime you go threw it feels like your going to fly out of it from upside down cause it goes so slow.
The only part of any ride when I feel "unsafe" is on V2 (or S:UE) when you're sitting in the front row, and you go up the front spiral the second time and you come very close to the top, it allways makes me hold on. Only ride that ever does that to me.
I have to say that unexpected ejector airtime is the most and probably only scary moment of a coaster.
I knew basically nothing about Riverside Cyclone before I rode, Just got a tip to ride the BACK SEAT while some internet buddies opted for a seat further up.
. Well Holy S*** I thought we were gonners on that first drop and then 3 more times on the ride! :) We rode it again in none other than the backseat and would have ridden many times if it had not been for 1 train op :(
Legend, That first part of the Double Up is a slow rise comming off the Dive turn and dosn't look like much, WOO WHOO! Every seat in the train gets almost standup float air! The first time it scared me but it is a moment even though I know its there now I live for!
Another Kinda scary moment to me was Shivering Timbers Trick Track, I've ridden about 5 coasters with trick track and this is the only one that works. It tilts you left and then kinda tilts you right toward the structure of the outbound hill! :)
Chuck, who hears THE BOSS has a terrifying moment and must get out there :)

Americana is opening in 2002 and needs your support as many company picnics are already schedualed for someplace else, Indivdual visits are very improtant to the parks survival.
Halfway up the main hill of a coaster. Thats when I start realizing how far up I am and also that we're only halfway there. That's usually when the person next to me either (a) starts whining about being scared or (b) starts exclaiming about all the things below us looking so small. That's when I start analyzing the machinery of the coaster and what I'm sitting on, and what's pulling me up. I think 'why the heck am I up here?'
The hold at the top of Oblivion, all your weight on the shoulder harness, looking down into that hole into which the coaster is never ever going to fit. The guy on each end is going to get ripped clean off and left behind. Then you drop. Thats scary....
