For those of you that have been to theme/amusement parks, was there a favorite ride that you liked above all the others?

For me it was the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland.

Silver Comet for sure!

In my travels I've never actually been to an amusement park outside of the area, so I'm sticking with it. That or Dragon Mountain.

Fun ride that I could go on time after time? Top Gun at Great America.

A ride that knocks the spit out of your mouth? Invertigo

It's probably not as intense as most of the roller coasters people here have been on, but I haven't had the opportunity to go to many places with intense roller coasters.

I've only been to a few theme parks (Fantasy Island, Six Flags, and the one in Disney World)
My favorites are the Superman (It's OK), and Splash Mountain

Kingda-Ka is soooooooooooo over rated, I went on and it's way to short of a ride. Not worth it.

I love me wooden coasters.

Beast is by far one of the better ones.

And, big bad wolf is probably the best suspended coaster in america (japan has better, but... thats neither here nor there)

Soarin' at Disney/Epcot.

Edit: Am I the first person who didn't list a roller coaster?

my top would be Batman at Great America, I've been to two theme parks in the last like 5 years, so I have to go old school

I just went to Disney World in December, and Expedition Everest, Mission Space, and Test Track were great...pretty bummed I didn't get to go on Soarin' or Aerosmith though, 4 hour wait definitely not worth it

Should've used the fast pass. You missed out.

yes the fast passes were great, I used them on most rides...however, you have to get them at certain times, and it would be like 7am-9am you could get them for like morning times, or like 1pm-3pm for afternoon/night...so we would miss the times, and there's no way I'm waking up early just for a fast pass...also, Aerosmith refused to use them when I was there, and we checked everyday for almost a week

raging bull is good, but I like batman better...idk just something about it being there before all the "new" roller coasters, it's always fun, one of the rides you have to do at great america IMO
