In brief: Acl

No i would not recommend taking the chance.
You could twist the knee on the roller coaster and damage the graft.

In brief: Yes

The acl reconstruction should not keep you from riding roller coasters.
1 month after surgery you may still have some trouble walking normally, so remember to pace yourself and try not to limp around the park.
