Cuddly Rides

Mark Kausch's post in the Matterhorn thread gave me an idea...

There are some rides that are just conducive to members of the opposite sex (or in some cases, same) being able to cuddle up with one another while riding. Without getting graphic or lewd, what are some rides that you place in this category?

For me, I've enjoyed the company of my (then) significant other on the following:

Log Flumes in general
Enterprises in general
Kennywood's Exterminator
Kennywood's Garfield's Nightmare (dark boat ride)
Hershey's Kissing Tower
Indoor shoot-em-up rides in general
The occasional Ferris Wheel
Ride through Haunted Houses (not including Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom)

How about you ladies and gentlemen? (and let's remain as such..)

Comments in chronological order. Most recent at the bottom. Scroll down to respond.

Up until 2010, the only ride I can attest to a little romance was on the Raceway at SF Great America. Really was the only good reason to ride it.

Let's see...
-Haunted Manson
-Splash Mountain: though I have not ridden the opposite sex since the lap bars,
-WDW Railroad

That's MK at least. I can think of lots more, but they all fall into the categories above so it gets repetitive.

Flying Falcon type rides and Avalanche at King's Dominion.

There are some thickly nested trees and bushed in IOA where you can….. Dude – seriously… Theme parks are made for fun and adventure, not other stuff….

I think one of the best ones is Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover. I think this is a great "cuddle" ride, especially at night with the castle and Tomorrowland all aglow.
