I am Jack's Coaster

On the way to work, school, or on some part of your daily commute, what coasters do you pass, if any?
When driving from class to work, the lift and first drop of Kraken is clearly visible. Catching it on the first drop is a nice little daily perk. ;)

Whenever I'm heading towards Sandusky on 250, which I'll do atleast every other day for work or other purposes, MF can be seen towering in the distance, and TTD too but for a shorter time because it gets blocked by trees and a hotel.

I pass by Lake Compounce every day going to work. Boulderdash can be seen on the opposite side of the lake, I can see Wildcat through the fence and Zomerang is right near the road.

If go home the 91 to the 5 I can see pretty much all of the taller coasters at KBF and Disneyland/DCA.

I lived across the street from Geauga Lake for 4 years until 2 weeks ago....so I saw those coasters every day!!

Although it's not a coaster... I do see the Sky Screamer (
300' S&S Shot/Drop tower that's 450 total height
) daily from Buffalo, despite it being in the distance in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Other than that, not too many coasters to view in this area within the general city limits.

I see....dead people. Sorry, couldn't resist.
The only coaster I see is the one on my desktop of Mean Streak with a tornado-like funnel in the background...pretty creepy.

I see the little dipper at kiddie park almost daily :) my sister and alot of my friends work there, I used to pass it going to school.

None, except for Top Gun (PKI) on my desktop. I live an hour away from the nearest park, so I have to try pretty hard to see one.

I guess the bigger question is who DOESN'T have a coaster on their desktop? ;)
I'm another "desktop only" although it changes from TTD to MF to Xcelerator to Stealth to Roar to X (all taken by me) and I think I have a couple more ... variety is nice.

Funny you should mention that. I didn't have a coaster on my desktop until about 2 days ago. The grand canyon was replaced by Tidal Wave...er Greezed Lightning.

On the way to work and home each day, I pass by a really ugly sculptured memorial for Riverside Park in Chicago. How happy I would be to actually be passing the coasters each day. Then again, I probably would not make it to work if the coasters were actually still there...
