Before the availability of the instant gratification that the interwebs and YouTube provide, these shows were a real treat, showing off rides and coasters that were largely unknown to me.
This Summer the Travel Channel is going to premier an entire new series featuring coasters with "death-defying drops, spine-torqueing twists and stomach-churning inversions" called Insane Coaster Wars.
Several categories are already available for voting. While this is certainly no scientific attempt at ranking rides... it is a lot of fun! There's plenty of parks and rides featured, so everyone can find a ride to root for.
The first of the six episodes will air on Travel Channel on July 8th. A one hour long special episode will follow the series and count down the 10 rides that received the most votes.
