Roller coasters throughout the world

On http://www.rcdb.com/tv.htm?continent=2 you can get information about stationary rollercoasters throughout the world. Transportable rollercoasters like those used on the Octoberfest in Munich are not in the list!

Ahh.. the best roller-coaster I've been on is on there: Colossus in Thorpe Park!

It has the most inversions (loops) of any roller-coaster in the world:

I've been on Colossus and the corkscrews at the end are worse than the big loops as you feel as though you're going to fall out. The new coaster they're building for 2006 looks pretty scary.
