Re: What's your favorite Flat ride?

All-time favorite has always been Drop Tower at KI. However, I've never ridden KD's Drop Tower, which while slightly shorter in height, has a longer drop section and higher top speed. So if I ever ride that it might unseat KI's Drop Tower as my #1...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Screamin' Swings. Skyhawk in particular, and always wish KI could get one but fat chance CF buys another one of those maintenance hassles...

I also like Houdini at Great Adventure. So unique. I've never ridden anything like it. And for being a themed ride, its pretty re-rideable.

I also love any carousel with a fully-functioning organ and percussion set. :)

Have to go with Drop Line at Dollywood, the view is unmatched by any other drop tower, and your time up in the air is so peaceful but so stressful.

I like Pirate Ships even though they are generally pretty mild. The way the sensation of light air time alternates between the two halves of the ship heightens the social aspect as you watch the riders across from you.

Sadly, this is no longer at the park, and I'm not sure if Huss ever built another one of these, but Kieppi was my favorite flat ride ever. Seriously, this thing was absolutely insane.
