Saw the Ride is my favorite. I heard reports that the ride was rough, but I found it perfectly smooth. I only was able to ride it once, so maybe I just got lucky. But I loved it. The indoor section was themed as well as Mystery Mine, but the outdoor segment was considerably longer. I didn't realize it would have as many inversions as it did.

2) Mystery Mine- A shorter version of Saw.
3) Hydrus- Love the lap bar only trains.
4) Untamed- It has an extra helix compared to Hydrus, but I'll take the lap bars.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Outlaw Run
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus

Takabisha is my favorite since Monster is an Infinity Coaster.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

For myself it has to be SPEED at Oakwood Park in Wales.

It was my very first Eurofighter, and I loved it so much, I went on it
12 times in a row, before I started to get a small headache from
riding too much, LOL!

And I remember calling that downward spiral near the end of it, the "Toilet Bowl."

I have been on 7 others (in the list) since then. Probably actual better ones, too.
No matter. "One's First" is always/usually "The Best One". :wink:

My first was SpongeBob at the Mall of America, but Mystery Mine is the best. They're all fun though. Haven't been on a bad one yet.

^ Mystery Mine is definitely the one I've known about for a long long time, since it was announced and built. And definitely wanted to ride.

You'll get there. And I'm sure Dollywood will keep it running great.

I think that was the idea behind the ride... not to have good pacing, and have good hangtime...

Or Wicked at Lagoon

By the way, do Infinity Coasters count? I know the trains are different, but some like Junker and Karacho only have two rows, and look just like a regular Eurofighter. Is it the train design itself or that it has two rows that make it a Eurofighter?

According to Gerstlauer, what differentiates an Infinity Coaster from a Eurofighter is the trains/lapbars and train capabilities, regardless of the number of rows on the car. So I would say Karacho and Junker wouldn't qualify as Eurofighters, per Gerstlauer's definition (you can see Adam Sandy explain it in IAAPA interviews from this year).
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
