Coaster with the strongest smell?

Last time I went to my home park, the back of Kingda Ka smelled like fertilizer / cow manure. My mother, then, proceeded it to call the back row, "Kingda Ca-Ca" as I told her my experience.

I’ve got to say, after having visited yesterday; Legoland Windsor seemingly love a good smell pod!

Dragon has a very distinct Medieval smell in the dark ride section, Flight of the Sky Lion uses numerous smells, Monster Party uses a musty smell in the pre-show area, and a smell of desserts during the actual Madhouse section itself, and there are probably more I’m forgetting!

The lift hill on Euromir can get pretty ripe in the summer... oh and Odyssey smells like a fish fryer at points (due to its location obv)

Klondike Gold Mine coaster at Drayton Manor had a really strong smell of diesel or some sort of fuel. It’s the only one that really sticks out for me to this day.
I like the smell of old woodies, the decades of baked in oil and grease has a certain charm to it.

At the opposite end of the scale though is any ride with a leaky gearbox, used gearbox oil smells like rotten eggs and is a complete assault on the nose. Anyone who has changed the oil in a cars gearbox or diff will know what I mean....

Old Vekomas such as the corkscrew at AT and FL had a really strong oil smell, not unpleasant to me though, just smelt like a petrol station, same thing with Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris.

I feel like, all of Kennywood just has some old-timey frying oil smell.
