At Kings Dominion I usually ride I305 first. Sometimes I'll go to the park and ride Dominator or Volcano first, depending on the lines. When I visit BGW, Loch Ness Monster has always been the first ride of the day for me.

I Love Donkeys!

Coaster Count - 127
Top 10 Coasters: 1. Voyage - 2. Lightning Rod - 3. X2 - 4. Storm Chaser - 5. Maverick - 6. Twisted Colossus - 7. Goliath (SFGAm) - 8. Millennium Force - 9. Cornball Express - 10. Magnum XL-200
Top 5 Parks: 1. Dollywood - 2. Holiday World - 3. Cedar Point - 4. Universal's Islands of Adventure - 5. Six Flags Magic Mountain

Donkeys are my way of life!

Wave Swinger at Lake Compounce. It's right there, and it's the best of its kind.

Depends on what reason I go to the park, really. If I'm going for a few hours by myself to KD, I usually hit up Volcano or Windseeker first (although I may start doing Delirium first). If I go with friends, we usually go up on the Eiffel Tower to 'plan' our route for the day, since most of my friends don't go to amusement parks as much as I do.

If we go to BGW, usually we do Griffon first.
1. Maverick
What a wonderful day to go ride a giga...

At my home park (Busch Gardens Tampa), I make sure whenever I visit (especially if I get there at opening time), that I head straight for the two roller coasters that always have the consistently longest wait times in the park which are Cheetah Hunt and the new Cobra's Curse. After I ride those two coasters before the lines build up it's basically a free for all on what to ride next because most all of the rides there don't have as long of lines. The only exceptions to which I often skip is because their lines move so slow when there is one regardless of it's wait are Scorpion, Sand Serpent and Stanley Falls.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

I honestly don't go to Carowinds often, but when I do the first thing I go to is Top Gun!! I refuse to call it that new name. It'll always be Afterburn. Damnit.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

At SFSTL, I normally head for Screamin' Eagle first, but if it's closed, I do Batman the ride first
Coaster Count: 96
