I Love Amusement Parks and Roller Coasters

From Joyland To Cedar Point... I've been to quite a few places over the years.
It started with Joyland when I was a young kid in Kansas. There was one down from my Grandmother's house. It had an old fashioned wooden roller coaster without all of the modern safety devices. I really don't know how old it was, but it was a neat ride to a preteen.
I got to go to World's of Fun once from my memory, but I don't remember much about it.
When I moved to Ohio later, I went to King's Island. Now the Beast is a great coaster, but the others at the time were not as good. The Bat, now gone, pretty bad. Vortex, shook badly (good if you wanted to get rid of those dental fillings :) ). King Cobra, neat, but way too short.
Finally in college got to go to Cedar Point. Now there was some great coasters. I only remember the Magnum, but we went on several others that were fun too including one right on the lake (I think it had dragon in the name).
Sadly haven't been to any since 1997. Maybe again one day.
