In theory - yes. In practice - not always. I would be scared to death and feeling sick in many of the rollercoasters in your pics! Cool pics.

I live right by Six Flags Great Adventure quite a few of my friends work there. One of my friend's dad used to be the manager there and I ski with the guy who designed Kingda Ka and El Toro.

I love wooden roller coasters. there's something charming about a ride that makes you think its gonna fall apart

Don't know the name, but this is a ride at Michigan's Adventure (I took it while at the height of another carnival-style ride, haha)

It took us exactly 1 hour and 15 minutes when we took the New Jersey Transit special express bus from Port Authority Bus Terminal this past summer.

Who doesn't love rollercoasters! I love X at Magic Mountain. Hopefully the local coaster park here in Utah (Lagoon) will get some better rides. They aren't bad, but they could be better.
