I love Spiderman and Transformers, but as far as dark rides go, Revenge of the Mummy (Orlando version) tops them all. This ride is absolute perfection. There's never a long wait, so we ride 2 or 3 times in a row on every visit.

2nd favorite: Haunted Mansion, WDW
"You're Making Me Angry....."
Visited Parks:
Six Flags: New England, Over Georgia, Fiesta Texas
Carowinds, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, SeaWorld Orlando, WDW, Universal Orlando

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

I think Universal Studio is pretty much king of Dark Rides. And I love most of them. Transformers, Spider Man, Gringotts, Forbidden Journey, Men In Black and ET (mostly because of its nostalgia) are all great rides. While Disney may have good ones, I think Universal's dark rides are more thrilling.

That's a good one.

My personal favorite has been Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. Everything from the queue, theming and ride was really well done.

I would say it's a coaster with dark ride aspects.
If it has :airtime: count me in!

^ Aw, crap, not this debate again.

My vote goes to Pooh's Hunny Hunt. It's absolutely mind-blowing. I understand the concept, I understand the execution. I work with the automation system that runs the ride, FFS. It still manages to make me sit back in awe.

I want to the Dark ride mecca, Orlando last year and honestly Spiderman was really good better than I thought it would be. It was the first dark ride that really was thrilling to me the ride felt a little rushed but it was a favorite from me. I left thinking "ok I know why this was rated the best dark rides in the country".

I am stupid.

I would say Dinosaur at Disney's Animal Kingdom. A very well themed ride, and the effects really interact with it.
Coaster Count: 73

Favorite Coasters:

Nitro El Toro Skyrush Storm Runner
Hydra Wicked Cyclone Steel Force Bizzaro Farenheit
Montu Sheikra Cheetah Hunt Kumba
