Brace Yourself: There are three versions of the Bizarro coaster in the U.S.: one at Darien Lake in New York State, one at Six Flags American in Maryland, and one here. But this is the one that wins the awards every year as the best roller coaster in the U.S. With its speeds of more than 77 mph, a 221-foot drop into a tunnel, two bunny hills, three camel backs, and a grand total of 10 seconds of weightlessness, it’s easy to understand—with your wobbly legs getting off the ride—why this ride won Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket Award (the Oscar of the amusement park industry) again in 2007.

If You Chicken Out: Head for the Thunderbolt, a classic wooden coaster with some Cyclone-like herky-jerky bite; the park bought the ride from the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City.
