If your idea of a roller coaster is driving through the streets of San Francisco, go cower with the wussies at the cotton candy booth. Featuring descriptions of the fastest, highest, most stomach-rattling steel and wood framed rides, this site from Birmingham, Ala.-based meteorologist (and veteran of almost 400 roller coasters) Jim Westland isn’t for the hurl-prone. Tossing around terms like ”G force” and ”airlift” like, well, cookies, Westland waxes poetic on everything from the over-200-foot Desperado in Nevada to France’s Tonnerre De Zeus (”[do] not miss the opportunity to ride this great woodie”).
