I became a roller coaster fanatic a couple of years back on a trip to Florida. Before that, I’d been too scared to get on anything but pretty small coasters, but after having tried the wildest that they have to offer, I’m now a pro.
Now, we don’t have big roller coasters in Denmark, so until the next trip I’ll have to enjoy them by proxy. A good site for that is the Roller Coaster DataBase which is to roller coasters what imdb is to movies. Pretty much every roller coaster in the world is listed with stats and pictures.
For roller coaster reviews, my favourite is thrillride.com. There aren’t that many review, but they’re very well written – almost like being there yourself. Now: Who wants to go to California and try this one.
