I went to Great America a couple weeks ago. The pictures are mostly of X-Flight and Raging Bull. But, there are a couple of pictures of Giant Drop. X-Flight was great, but Raging Bull is a little more thrilling, IMO. Enjoy! =)

X Flight is a great coaster to just sit and watch. It also is very photogenic. I think its a great ride even if its not extremely intense.
