I'll start with what I've been on:

GCI- Gwazi, Renegade, Prowler
B&M- Montu, Kumba, Raptor (CP), Mantis, Patriot, Silver Bullet, Batman the Ride (SFOT)
Intamin-TTD, Millenium Force, Steel Venom, Xcelerator, Disaster Transport

For GCI, it's easily Gwazi. Though I did enjoy that ride with the PTC's, it's still the least impressive one I can think of

For B&M, it's a tie between Mantis and Silver Bullet. Mantis for the pain, Silver Bullet for how boring/underwhelming it is. I did like the overbank though...

For Intamin, I'd have to say disaster transport. I don't hate that ride, like some do. I actually find it really enjoyable. However, it's easily at the bottom of my list as far as intamin is concerned.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Note: As with most, this is just out of what I've been on.

Intamin: Half Pipe (Elitch)-This thing is an evil little machine. I had such an unpleasant experience on it that it put out of commission the day I rode it for longer than the Volare, the SLC, TwisterII, and the Boomerang *combined*.

GCI: Of the three I've been on, Apocalypse is probably my least favorite. Not because it's a bad ride or anything, but it simply doesn't measure up to the savageness of SFDK's Roar or (my #1) Thunderhead.

B&M: Now, I really should be putting CGA's Vortex here, but I feel that this dubious honor really deserves to go to SFMM's Scream. Whereas Vortex is rather old, a standup, and...at CGA, Scream has absolutely no reason to have deteriorated as much as it has, especially considering how the other B&M's in the park and even the three-year-older floorless in the same state are so much...better. And its a pity too, as it started out as a really good ride, but has progressively become so unbearable that I've avoided it for several consecutive visits.
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Intamin: Either the Impulse coasters or Fahrenheit at Hershey Park. I find both to be incredibly boring (I'm not counting Jr. Gemini or Skull Mountain because they're designed to be family rides so it wouldn't be fair). Impulse coasters look impressive but do nothing for me, and Farenheit falls into the same category. That's one of the most disappointing coasters I've ever ridden.

B&M: Vortex at Carowinds. Not a bad ride, but not on the same level as most of their other coasters.

GCI: Wildcat at Hershey. It's a beautiful coaster but it's pretty rough.

Out of the one's I have ridden:
Intamin: It would probably be La Vibora, but for a real Intamin I would say Fahrenheit (it just has a boring layout)
B&M: I would say maybe Vortex at CGA/Carowinds (they are both bad)
GCI: Gwazi for roughness and Lightning Racers for boring

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Anyone else notice the SIX YEAR GAP between posts on page six? I think this is the worst thread necro I've ever seen..

but since it's already been re-animated...

Intamin: Skull Mountain. There's just nothing to it at all...
B&M: It hurts me to put down any B&M ride, I love all of them I've ridden, but out of all of 'em, I think Batman: The Ride just doesn't hold up as well as its newer family.
GCI: Gwazi. Great layout, so much potential, but like everyone else has said, it's just -so- rough, and I have a pretty good tolerance for rough rides.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

How could I have forgetten about Fahrenheit? I guess that speaks volumes about how memorable the ride is. I'll add it to my earlier selection of Cheetah Hunt. They both suck equally- impossible to pick a winner here.

This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

I've gone pantless!

Here's my two cents.

Intamin: Shockwave (stand-up coaster at Drayton Manor, UK). Jupiter, an Intamin woodie in Japan, is quite bad, as well.
GCI: Gwazi (BGT--I actually liked it a bit better with the old PTC trains)
B&M: Iron Wolf (now relocated to SFA and renamed Apocalypse)

Two stand-ups--yeah, I'm not a big fan of that type of coaster.

Intamin: Volcano: The Blast Coaster. Yes, I know it's loved around here, but I find it to be uninspired, slow after the first inversion, and just a few heartline rolls. Nothing to it, and short as hell.

B&M: Tie between Hydra and Carowinds' Vortex. Hydra was kinda dull and Vortex was really rough and rattly.

GCI: Only been on SFA's Roar, Wildcat, and Lightning Racer. Out of those, I'd go with Roar, though I still liked it.

Least Favorite Intamin - Mick Doohan's Moto Coaster at Dreamworld, AU. It was just boring and uncomfortable. I highly doubt I'd wait more than 5 minutes for any moto-coaster.

GCI - Thunderhead? It was rough later in the day when I rode it. I liked Rumbler better.

B&M - I've had some TERRIBLE Mantis rides. I still liked Iron Wolf over Mantis.
