My favourite inversion has to be the dive loop, hangtimey... I also like all launches, and vertical drops, for some reason I find them almost airtimey, I tend to come out of my seat a bit before the g's hit too much.

I like the first drop on Kumali at flamingo land. I also like the helix right before the brake run. My favourite ride outside Alton towers!

Pre drops, or just small drops before it all kicks in, like thirteens before the lift, nemesis pre drop, airs and megafobias.

The turn after you finish nemesis' lift.
Me while watching on ride povs of it"why does everyone scream on that part. Can't be that bad"
Me on ride after we leave the lift hill "wooooaaaahhhhhhhh aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!"
:lol
Erm, change of plan, I prefer The Smiler. Rita's rubbish. Should have thought of that...

I love nemmy's pre drop, turn and drop. It's so fun because it's quite a gradual drop

It's got to be camel backs! They can be implemented on almost any rollercoaster (family or thrill) and provide the most surreal experience of weightlessness.

I like all of the elements, if they're used correctly.

For example, I'd enjoy corkscrews a lot more if they went over guests or track.

But if I had to pick one, it would be the barrel roll thing on Rage at Adventure Island. You get hang time on it, and that's fun.

I love the whole section of Saw before the lift hill. The special effects and really loud sounds make it so engaging!!! And the indoor drop completely caught me off guard. Love the heartline roll as well :clap: :yes:

Launches. No matter how many times you ride coasters with them, they catch you off-guard and thrill you. Special credit to Stealth (especially on the front row) as I can't think of any ride off the top of my head that has a greater acceleration.

Mine has to be Hex, the queue area and the ride itself :D
The woman asked 'spare a farthing for a beggar', the earl cruelly dismissed her, and instructed his driver to head back to the towers, scorned the old woman screamed the curse 'FOR EVERY BRANCH OF THE OLD OAK THAT FALLS, A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY WILL DIE!'

Mine's probably The Smiler's cobra roll exit (a weird one I know) but if you lean foward when you go into the jolt is actually intense and fun

I especially love the stall turn on Nemesis, it makes me appreciate the ride and realise what legend John Wardley is!

Definitely camelbacks and corkscrews.
