I liked X:/No Way Out just because I had no idea what to expect, no idea what was going on during it and no idea what had happened after it.

The whole experience is a bit blurry (Especially all of the bits where you just sit in the dark puzzled)

So bad, it's actually a bit endearing. ;)



It is a WTF? kind of coaster. I would expect it from a small park but not a large park like Thorpe.

For best, my vote like most others is Nemesis at Alton.

Well when it was built Thorpe Park was just a small park with few rides.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

There is a book about British Coasters. OK it's circa 1996, but it offers an interesting and humorous look at what us Brits had at the time (Many since lost!)

FROM: http://www.rollercoastermedialibrary.com

[BOOK 117] A.G. PRESTON: BRITAIN'S GREATEST COASTERS. [1996]
(14x21cm - 232 Pages - Many B&W photos). There have been many books written on the history of roller coasters both in the States and in Europe, but none have put forward Britain's best. That is what this publication sets out to do. Also features an interesting introduction: a year -by- year look at roller coaster milestones, from the Russian ice slides of the 16th & 17th Centuries, to 1996 and Megafobia! Chapter Points/Contents: Introduction; How It All Began; PMBO; Nemesis; Shockwave; Ultimate; Grand National; Vampire; Big Dipper; Wild Mouse; Texas Tornado (Morecambe); Cyclone (Southport); The Woodies Fight Back!; Other Sparkling Coasters; European Coasters; The RCCGB; Coaster Manufacturers; My Record; The Future; Coaster Terminology.

Nemesis is the best rollercoaster in Britain. Although others do deserve a mention.
Grand National- The airtime is crazy and the ride is pure fun!
Pepsi Max Big One- It's the tallest coaster in the UK, and a really fun one too!
Big Dipper- Total fun and an exelent ride.
Rita- Such a fun ride and has some nice pops of airtime.
Oblivion- An amazing experience.
Th13teen- It's a revolutionary ride and is really fun.
Stealth- An interesting ride but i've only ridden it once so I can't claim anything towards it.
Colossuss- The rides great and the last 5 inversions are scary.

Also, Megafobia is my second favourite coaster. Although it's Welsh, it deserves a mention!

That's a hefty list! But Nemmy seems to be the champion
Love the TP industry :)
