They're terrifying aren't they? Gentle ones can be a good alternative to drugs, they give you a cleansing adrenaline buzz, but those ones that are designed to make you as dizzy as if you've just cicled round a broomstick twenty times are just insane aren't they. It's like being blind drunk for a short time. Er, great.

I hate that fucking Tower of Terror thing, and all the spin-offs it has spawned. Drag you up thirteen stories, then drop you. Terrible, awful thing. Not at all a nice feeling.

Yeah, I'm obviously weird like, but putting myself into a situation where I'm liable to soil my pants doesn't really float my boat. See also: Xtreme Sports.

Who was that racing driver who came in his pants?

I fucking love roller coasters. Air at Alton Towers is magic. And if you can get on the front, Collosus at Thorpe Park is bloody magic towards the end with 4 consecutive barrel rolls. And the Duelling Dragons at Islands of Adventure is also utterly brilliant if you're at the front.

It's like doing the extreme sports stuff, but without the risk. Like top-rope climbing. Perfect.

Some of us, Andy, feel there’s more than enough of a rollercoaster ride just by living with a woman. There’s one heck of a ride at least every fourth week.

I love rollercoasters. I used to deal with planning applications for Alton Towers. It was great.

I like rollercoasters, but unfortunately my good lady hates them She squealed like a weed on the Runaway Train ride at Disneyland in Paris, for God's sake. So that blew Space Mountain for me. I am not going on one alone. I have my dignity.

I can't wait till I have kids old enough to go on them.

'Nemesis' at Alton Towers is the best one I've been on, I think. For that drug-free headfuck aspect (although I've got mates who always take poppers with them to Alton Towers because it adds to the fun... <shakes head sadly>).

This place was just completely terrifying; You go up in a lift to the top of the tallest tower in Las Vegas, and then there are these rides really precariously hanging off the side of the viewing platform. Stuff that you wouldn't go near on safety grounds, if it was at your local fair.

Haven't done many and haven't been to Alton Towers, but the Pepsi Big Max One Something (you can see how the corporate sponsorship has really lodged in my cranium) in Blackpool is a thing of some splendour.

the scariest roller coaster are the ones that arrive with the travelling fairs. the ones that rattle and clatter alarmingly as they throw you round in a tin chair. the ones that convey the impression a vital bolt is about to shear clean off, throwing you thirty feet through the air into the crowd. that's what i call scary.

Rollercoasters are great, I second 'the big one' as a beauty. The Sydney Wonderland has one of those rickety wooden jobs from the sixties, it's the most scared I've ever been on a rollercoaster. To really put the wind up yourself though, bungee jumping is the one. I always thought 'knock kneed with fear' was just a turn of phrase until I tried that. Never again.
