    definatley duelling dragons as it pulls the most g forces and is a great ride, then rock n roller for the sheer exhilleration off the start, then the kraken for the first drop then the hulk, coz i just like it :)

    I think Everest because the theming is great and it feels different from any other coaster and it was more exhilarating than I thought it was going to be, then Rock n Roller Coaster for the theming, the music and the start:D

    I do like Duelling Dragons, Kraken the Hulk etc all great coasters but lack in the theming dept for me.

    The Hulk is awesome! That is just an awesome ride.

    The only photo we've bought is RNR but we had the whole car with people we knew :p

    After 4 visits and lots of times threatening to ride the Hulk but chickening out, I finally rode it in 2006. It was the best! I dont know why I was so afraid for years. I also like Kraken but hate RnR - I am a mess when I come off that.

    I get really sick on coasters so I usually end up minding the bags while the others go on and do a bit of people watching. One year DS pleaded with me to go on Kraken with him and I must have been suffering from sun stroke because I agreed. I was great going up the first ramp and loved the view from the top but the minute we started downhill I realised what a mistake it was :n045: I spent the entire time with my eyes firmly shut praying for it to be over, when I got off I felt so :sick007: I couldn't even speak to anyone for about half an hour and had to sit right outside the restrooms "just in case"

    I did try Everest when it first opened but I got off feeling really sick so needless to say I've never been on a coaster again and am quite happy to mind the bags

    I don't mind because you see some great things when you're waiting for the others to get back

    I'm so bad that I even felt rough on Goofy's Barnstorming Rollercoaster :D

    I thought Goofy's Barnstormer was a pretty fast (and kind of rough) coaster for little kids!

    You must be very sensitive to motion. Do you get ill on long car trips or boat rides? :(
