Geez, Stephanie, prepare thyself for a can of worms
with this question!  You'll have just about as many
answers as CP has coasters.  But it all depends on
what you like!  

My fave is the Blue Streak, because I am an airtime
fanatic.  The Blue Streak is an older wooden coaster
that is not the highest, fastest, etc, but it gives
lots of "losing your stomach" sensation.  A classic!

(BTW, if you like airtime ride the Demon Drop!  Not
a coaster, but you cant beat that 'free-fall' feeling!)

Or maybe it's the Magnum with the speed and height...
not much airtime, but it goes fast and it is very
tall. (This is a steel, non-looping coaster.) Wait
for the front car for great views down each hill.  
The tunnel at the end is cool, and is an all-around
great ride.  Leaves you exhilirated!  I put it behind the
Blue Streak simply because the line for Magnum is
always much longer. :-(

Have a great time and hope your lines aren't TOO long
(ha!)

One man's opinion (tho my daughter concurs):

When I'm on the Blue Streak, it's the best.  When I'm on the Magnum, it's the best.
These are airtime coasters and that's what I like.  The others:

Disaster Transport - Ho hum.
Iron Dragon - ZZZZZ.
Wildcat - Gee, if only this were bigger...
Corkscrew - Best part is on the ground watching it go overhead.
Gemini - 2 good drops, 1 good curve, short naps in between.
Mean Streak - Rough.  Decent coaster till it hits that brake...
Cedar Creek Mine Ride - Wouldn't it be great if they tore down this pig and brought in
    the Idora Wildcat?  Or the Crystal Beach Comet?  Or even a parking lot?
