I am going to Busch Gardens Williamsburg in June, so I decided to do a poll - what is your favorite Busch Gardens roller coaster?

My favorite has always been the Alpengeist. I personally prefer inverted roller coasters to other types, and the Alpengeist is my all-time favorite.

I also love the Alpengeist - a thrilling ride!! But, when I went Apollo's Chariot was being worked on and I could not ride it!!!! So, I have rode all the others just not the Apollo's Chariot, but I hope to this Spring/Summer! Have fun!!!!!!!!

I'm really surprised the Loch Ness Monster currently has more votes than the Apollo's Chariot. Sure, the Loch Ness Monster is a classic, however, the Apollo's Chariot is consistently ranked high in the top 50 coasters in the world.

Apollo's Chariot. The lack of an over-the-shoulder harness makes it more enjoyable, and the drop throws your stomach into your lungs. Just keep your eyes peeled for flying birds when riding it.

I voted for the Griff, solely because of the intense pause before the first practically vertical drop. That feeling in your gut! Ohhhhhh man! But prior to the Griffon being there, Apollo's Chariot was my absolute favorite. The risky feeling of only the lapbar holding you in your seat is inexplicable! I say ride them alllllllllll
