We get the point.
The Top Ten
The most famous type of ride. The monument of every amusement park. Towering over every other ride, casting shadows on them. No other ride can compare to the thrill, the adrenaline rush, of a roller coaster. Examples: Millennium Force, Kingda Ka - ThatStrangeKid42
Only ever been on a kiddie one when I was 9 because I am not the bravest person in the world. But one day I'd like to ride a roller coaster with a loop in it. It sounds like fun! - Lunala
When I think of amusement parks, I automatically think of roller coasters. - Ku
A ride that makes you scared poopless and gives you the feeling of death, and you get headaches, sick, and concussions, along with adrenaline and you just lose it every way.
Examples, Superman, Intimidator 305, Millennium Force, Top Thill Dragster & Kingda Ka.
Not the longest of rides, but very few other rides can compare to the airtime feeling of a drop tower. Examples: Six Flags' Zumanjaro, Kings Island Drop Zone, Disney's Tower of Terror - ThatStrangeKid42
I'll go on one when I'm older. But they look fun! - Lunala
Fun and very thrilling rides e.g. Drop Zone, Tower Of Terror, Maliboomer, and Zumanjaro
Creates a buildup throughout the entire ride... Then a climatic plunge, then a huge splash! Examples: Disney's Splash Mountain, Cedar Point's Shoot the Rapids - ThatStrangeKid42
"I love log flumes even though I've only ever been on 2 (Frightful Falls at Holiday World, then Splash Mountain at Disney)
They look fun, they seem to be not too scary. I can't find them anywhere which is a shame. - Lunala
Gets you a little wet but not drenched e.g. Splash Mountain, Dudley Do Right Ripsaw Falls, Timber Mountain Log Ride, and Coal Cracker
So calm, so peaceful... yet so giant. They look beautiful at night. Examples: London Eye, Singapore Flyer - ThatStrangeKid42
Peaceful and anyone can go on one. Babies, children, teens, adults and old people. - Lunala
Relaxing fun and amazing views e.g. Wonder Wheel, Sun Wheel, Giant Wheel, and Sky Whirl
Packed with amazing scenery and special effects. A successful dark ride is an artistic masterpiece. Examples: Disney's Haunted Mansion, Universal's Transformers 3D - ThatStrangeKid42
Awesome and thrilling but there are mild dark rides too e.g. Star Tours, Forbidden Journey, Spiderman, and Test Track
Just overall fun. A little dizzy, but you can get used to them. - ThatStrangeKid42
The perfect ride for any young lover of amusement parks. Gets the kids to like rides before they can go on the roller coasters. - ThatStrangeKid42
I love these. Even though I'm a teenager. - Lunala
Best Example: Haunted Mansion at Disney parks.
For sure some of the scariest rides ever built! - ThatStrangeKid42
Spinning and swinging thrill rides e.g. Maxair, Black Widow, Delirium, and Riddler Revenge
They create a sense of no control that not many other rides can give. - ThatStrangeKid42
These rides are basically vomit machines.
Soaks riders with waterfalls and rapids e.g. Grizzly River Run, Kali River Rapids, Popeye and Bluto's Bilge Rat BargesV 1 Comment
The feeling of no gravity is quite the sensation! - ThatStrangeKid42
These rides have always been my favourite. Blasting music, while riding through a track. Especially if you're with your friends! - HappyFlower
Towering carousel swings e.g. WindSeeker, New England SkyScreamer, Texas Starflyer
