I think it is a toss up between Indy and Pirates. Probably lean towards Pirates because I love that ride.

I really like BTTF as well. Star Tours is up there for me.

Great picks. Screen-based rides like Transformers and Forbidden Journey are great, but there's something awesome about the tangible nature of these older attractions. Indy is still my #1, without question.

Indy for me too, I much prefer non-projected dark rides.

^Azza, you wait until you get a gander at some of the kinky Scandi dark rides, did I say - boobies!

My favorite Dark Rides have to be. Haunted Mansions/Phantom Manor, Pirates of the carribean, (all versions.) Tower of Terror in Florida, Transformers, Spiderman and Harry Potter and the forbidden Journey. Always loved Horizons aswell. Can still view it on the computer thankfully! :?r

Transformers at USO is my favorite.
My love for B&M Hypers is matched only by my hatred of Ninja (SFOG).

Mine is Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. I don't really care for the ride's storyline, but it's my favorite dark ride because the visual effects are just incredible. It's also quite thrilling by dark ride standards. As a "thrills-over-theming" type of person, usually these rides don't interest me, but this one did.

First Fave - Flight to Mars - at The 1962 Seattle World's Fair!
At age 9! I loved it and rode it three more times! :smile:

Current Fave - Indy at Disneyland - we rode it the first
year after it opened, March 1996, got those special code cards,
and I think I went on it 14 times in two days! It's still awesome,
especially with it's (kind of) clone in Tokyo Disney Sea.

That counts, too.

:mickey:

A very close second is that wonderful suspended dark ride in Efteling.
All to do with faeries, and some really breathtaking scenes, especially
when everybody "coasts" through the forest scene, round and round
and down and down and... :wink:

Just loved this ride through the years. Wish we had one at our park.
