I've never actually met a coaster I truly DIDN'T like, but I think I can stick a "favorite" label on one or two.

 

Favorite Intamin and all-time favorite: S:ROS at SFNE (my home park).

 

Favorite B&M and favorite with inversions: Great Bear

No it's not my picture, yes it's my favorite inverting coaster.

No it's not my picture, yes it's still my favorite alltime coaster.

I've already posted two pages ago, but here's a couple of uncommon views from scarcely documented eras. As we know it's been bastardised this year, so it's nice to look back to a time it had no restraints at all, and even when it was being built. No point giving a name..

About 30 years on from the photo above, and about 20 years before any restraints. Boobs too - hooray!

Carpenters building an eyeball job in 1934. Forget computers, forget parabolas, forget heartlining. They did it the best way - guesswork, circular hills and straight 10° banking.

Riddler's was one of my favorites too - that corkscrew at the end is just super.

 

My favorites are sort of in limbo, because they're all just super. Living in coaster Mecca (So-cal), there's a lot to choose from. My count is only 32 though. (But with repeat rides, it's 125! and 145 inversions !).

 

So, I'd say:

And number 3, Scream! Yes, it's in the parking lot...everyone bashes Six Flags for building a coaster in the parking lot, but I think they're too harsh...this is art (the coaster, not the photo).

No. 2 - Xcelerator

No. 1 - Batman the Ride - I love the forces on this, and it's just plain fun.
