Steel coasters that you actaully have a personal a

I think all of us find it very easy to love and grow up with certain wooden rides. (The beast comes to mind immediately) but it is a tougher and more elusive thing for steel rides. I'm talking about those rides that you love like a family member. These would be mine:

1. Maggie
2. Kumba
3. PKI Top Gun (I have spent many a lonely night on this ride near closing time)
4. Raptor
5. SFoG mind bender

Disaster Transport and the Iron Dragon: the two coasters I've worked. There's nothing like knowing a coaster inside and out, running setups, walking in the trough, doing hat-hunts, climbing lifts, and picking up the microphone to spiel that really makes it your baby.


*Clear!*

A Steel coasters I have a bond with are the Sea Serpant, I thought that coaster was amazing when I first saw it when I was four years (I cried when I couldn't ride it. That and GASM at SFGAdv. are really special rides to me. However, I expect to fall in love with NITRO!

Couldn't agree more... I spent the majority of last summer on the WildCat (with many fun hours in on Disaster Transport and 'Maggie') There's nothing like knowing every little rattle, vibration, and quirk...

Even though this coaster scrambles my mind and makes me black out about everytime...there is just something about it...I guess it's location. The first drop is amazing! But man, does it bang your head up!

I've known SFNE's Superman since it was a wee little baby sitting in pieces in the park's side parking lot. I watched it grow on the web. I experienced it as a young adolescent roller coaster coming into its own. It was a rebellious one that loved to break down. Now, I am glad to know the coaster as fully mature thrill ride that has been rated one of the best in the world. ;)

Okay, so I am obsessed.

Top Gun at PCW. When it first came out, I rode it 50 times in a row, with my friend. Sure we had Migranes for a while, but it was fun :)

It's not steel but I'd have to say SoB. Its like my brother to me. I watched it grow up over construction photos. Sometimes spending hours just looking at the same pictures over and over. Before I actually ever rode it knew every drop, turn, height, banking, and all the statistics. It's my brother and the best wooden coaster ever. It's my "first love."
