Simple, your 5 must must must rides on the planet.

Mine personally is:

#5- Coney Island Cyclone
#4- I305
#3- Leviathan
#2- El Toro
#1- Top Thrill Dragster

Do share!

You fail to make it clear... is this a list of 'must rides' that we've been on or a 'rides I want to go on before I die' list?

1: Spider-man (IOA)
2: Indiana Jones (Disneyland california)
3: Test Track (Epcot)
4: Wild Mouse (BPB)
5: Steeplechase (BPB)

I'm a bit of a coaster wuss so they're all fairly tame (except for the Wild mouse which I was tricked onto and is savage).

oh god no

Atmos Fear is bloody painful

Usually I'm incredibly sceptical of fairground rides,  and only when I was incredibly drunk at the wickerman festival I was egged on by my friends to go on it.

Whilst the actual ride is pretty good, as soon as the cars rotate freely on their own axis is fun , until you remain heads-down for the entire swing down section, all the blood rushes to your head and you feel like you are about to pass out. I felt like utter crap afterwards.
