-----------------------

Before May 1st. 2010 I generally liked steel coasters more than wooden coasters. But than I went to Holiday World and rode three amazing woodies. That day changed my outlook of coasters, and I fell in love with that park. It's crazy how I can spend all day at Kings Island and get bored so easy with it's 15 coasters, but than I go to Holiday World and never get tired of riding it's 3 coasters (I don't ride Howler, just rode it for the credit).

Another one of my favorite parks is Indiana Beach, I just love the nostalgic boardwalk atmosphere. Plus Cornball Express is my third favorite wooden coaster because of the CRAZY ejector air it has. I also love Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain, no where else in the world can you experience a ride that compact and that unique. Believe it or not, it actually has 3 moments of ejector airtime, plus good laterals in those tight turns. Indiana Beach also has Galaxi and Tig'rr, two classic steel coasters, Hoosier Hurricane an out-n-back woodie on Lake Schaffer, and Steel Hawg- featuring the steepest drop on any coaster in the US.

Kings Island was once my favorite park, but after visiting parks like Holiday World, Kings Dominion, and Indiana Beach, I realized that Kings Island isn't nearly as good as I once thought. I still love Kings Island in it's own way since it is my home park and the park I've visited the most. I just hope that once day a good company buys the park and can make it like it once was.

Kings Dominion is my favorite major park, but I still like Holiday World & Indiana Beach more. Kings Dominion is what Kings Island used to be, plus what it will never be. The park features great landscaping and has a wonderful atmosphere. Plus they still have rides Kings Island has removed. Kings Dominion features some of my favorite steel and wood roller coasters such as: Intimidator 305, Volcano, and Grizzly. I live hundreds of miles from Kings Dominion, but I hope to come back very soon!

Things I love in coasters:
