I rode I-305 in the dark for the first time earlier this year, and that first drop looks like you're just plummeting into a hole in the earth. It's really something else!

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Grizzly at Kings Dominion at night becomes an amazing experience that hasn't been rivaled for me yet in terms of night rides.

The Beast is the best example. During the day it’s mostly disappointing. At night, it’s legacy shines.

Other good ones:

Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake Park
Prowler at Worlds of Fun
Everything at Holiday World
Mind Bender at SFOG
Boulder Dash (already amazing in daylight but at night it is crazy)
Lightning Rod

I wish all parks stayed open until midnight regularly.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Space Mountain, way better at night...........


Serious answer though, way back when in the day when Hades was still good night rides on that thing were wild. The tunnel is dark during the day, but an night it was on another level.

Raven and Voyage are also good answers, I particularly remember Raven being really fun at night.

Not a coaster, but the ride that is COMPLETELY different day versus night that always pops up in my mind with this question is the train at Knoebels!

Can I park my donkey here?

I have to agree 1000% with this. I was taken aback by the darkness of the woods on the Pioneer Train. When I heard rustling in the trees, my mind played tricks on me... thinking perhaps there was some deranged maniac waiting to pounce on the train. Or perhaps it's a giant bear. Or who knows what else it could be. All I know is that the first ride on it can be quite frightening!
