Next was Viper. I tried seat 1:3 and I didn't get much airtime as I thought I would. I thought the turns were a little rough but I still love this ride. It was about a 25 minute wait.
Next was Demon. It was a 20 minute wait. I rode 2nd to last row. this drop was really exciting. It was smooth today but the corkscrew was a little rough.
Next was Whizzer. It was 5:00 now and we had to meet my friends parents at 5:30. We went in line for Whizzer and 10 minutes later it broke down. I broke down for 15 minutes and a lot of people left the line. We were able to get on at 5:32. Although we were a little late, her parents didn't mind.
We went to Roaring Rapids. It wasn't as warm as earlier in the day so I didn't dry off as easily. We waited 30 minutes and I got soaked. I was wet for the rest of the day.
We went back to Raging Bull and decided to go front row. We were in the line about 45 minutes. We were right about in the station when it broke down. It broke down for about 45 minutes and a lot of people left the front line. When it was up and running we were going to be in the 4th train. We were uneven number. We had 5 people. We were going to go 2 and 3 but I decide to let the 4 girls go considering I was the only guy.
It was 8:00 now and we wanted to go on Viper at night. We were on in 30 minutes. I sat in the last row of the second to last train. I got more airtime on this than 1:3 (IMO). It was so cool being dragged over the top of the lift hill. I decided to make this the second coaster that I keep my hands up. This ride is so cool in the dark. You don't know what to expect. I recommend anyone to ride this at night.
We had to leave by 9:30 and It was 9:00. The only thing that was left was Shockwave. Earlier in the day the line was really long. But we were on in 5 minutes. The lift hill is really LOUD. The turn into the trim brakes after the third loop hurt us really badly. I hate this ride. But all I can say is we were able to ride all the Roller coasters we could. We couldn't ride Spacely's Sprocket's rockets because we were all 15 years old and not accompanied by a child.

How can you rate Raging Bull
from number 2 to number 8? Seriously, Raging Bull
is the best ride there, for me anyway.

Raging Bull #8!? I respect youre opinion but I really think that its the best coaster in that park, let alone any park...
"Thank you for challenging the Raging Bull. We hope you enjoy the rest of you're day, here at Six Flags Great America."

I agree Viper is a good ride and V2 is a awesome ride but Raging Bull is the best coaster there. But I also respect your opinion but next time try riding Raging Bull in the back seat on the right side. Im sure it will move up to #1 on your list after it.
Don't Fight it, Ride it, RAGING BULL!

Guys, maybe you misunderstood what he said. He pushed Raging Bull from number 8 up to his 2nd favorite coaster in the park after this recent visit.
Chitowns 6 year old daughter says "Daddy, Dippin Dots are nasty!!" I must say that I agree!!

That is what I was saying. Raging Bull was number 8, but now it is my 2nd favortie coaster in the park.
V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing!
