Moonsault Scramble or Ring Racer woulda been swell, but as a feller who lives and breathes Iron Rattler... I can't help but to wonder how the OG Rattler with its 6 G drop woulda been, thats what I'd ride! (probably hecka rough but i never ridden something like that so for the life experience)

The track is still there, but I wish I'd ridden Space Mountain: De La Terre A La Lune at Disneyland Paris. I love that theme and missed out on riding it by 1 year when it became Mission 2.

In terms of tracks themselves, I'd love to ride Big Bad Wolf at BGW.

Missed the Bobs at Belle Vue Manchester by a single season.
Was the "next to be ridden" after reports from David Kitchen on the junior school playground in the early seventies.
I'm over it now...probably.
Happy teenage years on the Blackpool Reel made up for it.

The storyline of the original classic story with the big canon shooting you to the moon, awesome. That theme should have never been changed to a Star Wars theme. But yeah, commerce always wins.

Vertigo at Walibi Belgium (if, for nothing else, the rare cred points)
Volcano at Kings Dominion

I’ve never been to Disneyland Paris but discarding their unique, originally themed Space Mountain in favour what is now a generic Star Wars overlay seems like a terrible mistake.

Dragon Challenge. Spent several years asking if we could go to Universal. She always said it was "too expensive" and that she "wanted to go to Disney more".
