Time was that you went to an amusement park or even a theme park, and a roller coaster was just one of the many rides from which to choose. It was usually the scariest, most stomach-turning one at the park. Roller coasters are now so popular that many of the big theme parks offer a choice of several, one more gut-churning than the next.

Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA has a whopping 19! And roller coasters loom large in the Six Flags franchise generally if Bankrate’s 10 Best Theme Parks for Roller Coasters is any indication.

Bankrate tries to combine the quest for thrills with bang (so to speak) for the buck, and lists the park price of general admission. Then, assuming you ride each coaster once, they also figure the cost per ride.

If you want to get cheap rides you’ll have to head north to Ontario, Canada where the 16 coasters in Canada’s Wonderland amusement park will cost you $3 a pop. Stateside each one of Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 19 coasters is a measly $3.68.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Fox News' Peter Doocy

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ended the week with yet another smack down of Peter Doocy, as the Fox News reporter admitted there are Republicans who "don't agree with voting rights."

"As you talked about a year ago and working with Republicans, now [President Biden] is talking about Republicans that don't agree with voting rights," Doocy complained, "he's describing them as George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis. What happened to the guy who, when he was elected said: 'To make progress me must stop treating our opponents as our enemy'?"
