El Toro

El Toro is a wooden rollercoaster located at the "Six Flags Great Adventure" park in New Jersey. Its the third tallest and third fastest rollercoaster in the world. That's a pretty honest effort. Its also got one of the steepest drops, at 76 degrees.

Anyways, I bothered to mention all of this, because a) Its named "El Toro" and that's the coolest name for a coaster ever. And b) Its wooden. There's something so traditionalist, old-school and just amazing about building such an epic thing, piece by piece, and out of wood. Wood is such a classy construction material.

Anyways. "El Toro" - I definitely want to ride this fucken thing.
