I loved Wonderland as a kid.

My favourite ride was Skyrider It is a stand up roller coaster the has a loop.
Also liked Top Gun similar but your feet are hanging and its faster

as for water slides.
I really enjoyed one at wild water kingdom. It was something like 7 stories and nearly a 90 degree free fall drop.. probably 78 degrees or something like that but I remeber my back coming off the slide and it feeling like a complete free fall.

I used to go to Wonderland quite a bit, but haven't been since '99. I always liked The Bat and the Dragon Fire.

like those too its been a few years since I have been there as well. I went when they opened bohemoth but they wouldn't let me on because my legs where too big for the seat to lock.

I'm more of a waterslide kind of guy rather than a roller coaster guy. I used to go to Disney World somewhat frequently when I was a kid. I went to both Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, but I have to say that I liked Typhoon Lagoon more (which surprised me, cause I really wanted to like Blizzard Beach more).

Cedar Point in Ohio has a nice waterpark section of the park as well.

I went to Universal Studios in Burbank last year and I really enjoyed it. The studio tour that takes about an hour is pretty neat. The Simpsons ride is also fun!

I'm not a person that enjoys rides to be honest. When I usually go to amusement parks it's with a group of friends and most of us find the local saloon or bar and we drink beer.

That said, I'll do a few here and there, but no big roller coasters.

Personally, never was a fan of a Wonderland, but love La Ronde in Montreal.

only way to defeat that fear is to push it to it's limits. if you are ever in Toronto take a walk on the glass floor of the CN Tower observation deck. That should do it. Maybe bring a change of underware and pants just in case.

I've walked on the glass floor at the CN Tower but I still won't go on roller coasters. I guess I'm always afraid that the ride is gonna get stuck while I'm upside down or something :lol:
