Filed Under: Host Central, United States
Travel Channel hosts share the thrill rides that still make them feel like a kid, from a Coney Island classic to major Disney attractions.
Coney Island
Sasha Charoensub

Don Wildman, Off Limits

"At Coney Island you can still ride the great-granddaddy of them all, The Cylcone -- an old-fashioned thrill-ride without the motion sickness." It's also a favorite of Adam Richman, Anthony Melchiorri and Andrew Zimmern, who calls it "creaky fun."

Mark Meyer, Baggage Battles

My favorite coaster is … "the King Da Ka, because it’s more of a rocket ship than a coaster. [The] nighttime launch is a must."

Laurence and Sally Martin, Bagge Battles

My favorite roller coaster is … "Corkscrew, the first roller coaster Laurence went on. Sally doesn’t do roller coasters … they are too scary for her."

My favorite roller coaster is … "Rock’n Roller [at] Disney Studios -- high speed and rock and roll, need I say more?"

Nick Groff, Ghost Adventures

My favorite roller coaster is … "Disney's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad." We bet he can't wait to take his daughter on the indoor/outdoor mine train when she's old enough.

My favorite roller coaster is ... "the old wooden roller coaster at the Western Washington Puyallup Fair."
