I'm going to agree with many on here and say the first drop on The Swarm. It's both terrifying and exhilarating and I love it. :)
Also, the indoor section on SAW and the zero-G bunny hop on The Smiler with all of the effects. It looks just as good as it feels aha.

Might just add another one to my list and say the launch on Formula Rossa. Never been on it though, but one day when I have a bit more money... ;)

The backwards section of Thirteen, it always makes me giggle- though that may just be the reaction of the people around me ;). It's just a little different.

I really like the first inversion on The Smiler, smooth as silk and takes it with a fair amount of speed as well.

I rather like the second airtime hill on The Smiler - always impresses me :)

Also, the helix on Nemesis - simply my favourite part of the ride :)

HELIX! :yes:

That first drop on Nemesis and how it sort of goes round before going straight down into that first inversion is pretty epic.

I quite like the over banked curve as you come out of Oblivion's tunnel. I also like the the curved down hill bit on Air, just after you turn over

I also find airs track switching into and out of the station fascinating. Ok not an adrenaline pumping huge drop lol but I think it's clever and enjoy watching it happen

Not sure if it counts as an element, but the terrain hugging and near misses on Air or any flying coaster.

I think we've all missed the obvious here! The sharp corner and steep track entering the tunnel on the Runaway Mine Train. Always a joy!

i live in the middle east (qatar) but am from england, and my fave elements would be the barrel rolls in colossus and formulla rossas launch. those who thought stealths launch was powerful, this one feels like your face will rip off!
