I make the rules around here!
Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, VA - August 28, 2006

That twisty yellow track belongs to the Loch Ness Monster, a nifty little coaster which was the first (and is currently the only) roller coaster to feature interlocking loops. It also has a cool downward helix inside of a dark tunnel. For the most part, it's not quite as exciting as many other coasters out there today, but it was a groundbreaker when it was built in 1978 and really has held up very well.

The little sliver of blue track there is part of Alpengeist, a great inverted coaster in the mold of Batman: The Ride except higher, longer, and faster. I know, I said they paled when compared to the Great Adventure versions. I never said it was for logical reasons.
