Bert's Top 5: Roller Coasters

From Wisconsin to Ohio and beyond, check out Bert's favorite roller coasters of all time.

The Intimidator
The first drop sends you free falling and addictive 23 stories, this is one of the few rides I MADE my crew ride at the end of the day. (if you ride this ride you have to sit in the back)

Carowinds: 14523 Carowinds Blvd. Charlotte, NC 28273

Top Thrill Dragster
I know Kingda Ka is taller and faster, however I don't remember anything from Kingda Ka, it was all a blur...Top Thrill Dragster gave me nightmares for a week because I remember every second of this ride...and the ROLLBACK!

Cedar Point: 1 Cedar Point Drive, Sandusky, Ohio 44870
Bizzaro (pictured above)
This ride is like going ten rounds with Tyson. Great first drop, awesome airtime, and massive speeds, but the fire elements and the helix turns will leave you back at the station asking the person next to you who won.

Six Flags New England: Route 159, 1623 Main Street, Agawam, MA 01001
Hades
The owner of Hades told me I had to sit in the back row, but not to do it more than three times... Any ride that comes with a warning from its owner you know is a beast, and Hades is a beast.

Mt. Olympus Theme Park: 1881 Wisconsin Dells Parkway Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965
XScream
Front Row, 1100 feet over the strip, dangling like a car with it's two front wheels over the side of a cliff, bouncing up and down like your in Snoop Dogs Impala, and you'll be shocked at the end to find out you only traveled 30 feet the entire time.

The Stratosphere: 2000 S. Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89104
