Busch Gardens Tampa is one of the world's premier destinations for roller coasters. Home to Cheetah Hunt, Sheikra, Montu, and much more, it's become a staple with many enthusiasts. Yet, one coaster sits alone with visitors, Gwazi. It's been a few years since anyone has had a chance to ride Gwazi. The coaster shut down and hasn't been operating since.

Cedar Point is home to some record breaking coasters. Valravn is the latest to debut at the park. It's a top-notch thrill ride that's guaranteed to get your blood flowing. A lot of enthusiasts will say Valravn was a disappointment. I'll have to disagree with them. I thought Valravn was an excellent coaster. While not the best at Cedar Point, it still holds up well to the parks coaster roster.

Las Vegas isn't just for gambling and nightlife. Head over to the Circus Circus Adventuredome. There you will find one of the best roller coaster hidden gems in America, El Loco. The S&S Worldwide creation, El Loco is one of my top coasters of all-time. I'm not exactly sure why I'm so in love with this coaster. It's for good reason though. The El Loco style coaster, which is where
There are five giga-coasters in the world. I've had the opportunity to ride two of them, Leviathan and Millennium Force. Of those two, which is the better coaster?
