astoness I am very jealous, is not drayton manor the theme park. I love roller coasters, i have not been to DM or thorpe park or alton towers wich im told the ride "13" is great, I did blackpool a couple of years ago. whilst I think disney are the best overall, my firm favorite at the moment would Sentosa in singapore, the dueling coasters are awsome, but im desperate to get to Aba Dhabi to the Ferrari theme park, with the fastest roller coaster in the world top speed 240 kph or 149mph and it gets to that in just 5 seconds thats about the same velocity as a aircraft carrier steam catapult, it goes from 0 to 100kph in 2 yes two seconds because of the speed you must where protective goggles. this is about 4.8g while your getting to the 240kph you have risen to 50 metres above the ground, sadly my dear wife hates roller coasters and ships, think i went wrong somewhere
I am also a lone rider when I get the chance. We didn't go into Ferrari World when we were there for the GP a couple of years ago.
Perhaps I'll get another chance.
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.
