why make life complicated, you do not need to choose between the two but you can enjoy both. They go together quite nicely!! ----------------- The world's a roller coaster and I am not strapped in, maybe I should hold with care, But My hands are busy in the air- Incubus
I'd have to say I prefer intensity, although with that, you usually get a little air. I would have to agree on Ghostrider. My personal favorite ride, and it has tons of both, with significant 'ejector':) airtime.
Dan, with 2166 "trysts", no wonder they call you an airtime whore...LOL! But I'll agree with those who say both...S:RoS (SFA only one so far). For pure air, Phoenix. For pure intensity, Schwarzkopf shuttle loops followed closely by Goliath's powerful heeee-lixxxx... ----------------- PoTP acolyte - remove fear to reply Son of Drop Zone - PKI CoasterCamp I Champions!!!
I'll take intensity over airtime anyday. I love to scream rather than flying out of my seat. I'm not saying that I don't like the occasional "Tummy-Tickling drop" but I like G-pulling turns and tight drops. ----------------- "I’m more than a bird..I’m more than a plane...More than some pretty face beside a train...It’s not easy to be me"-Five for Fighting "Superman" dedicated to all of the hardworking rescuers of the WTC...
My two favorite coasters are: 1. Millenium Force and 2. Vertical Velocity at SFGAM (and to all you Bull fans yes I did ride the Bull, and yes it was fun, but I liked Wild Thing better) Millenium Force offered some nice airtime while cruisin at a decent clip, while V2 was a pure adrenaline shot.
However, I was partial to Viper at SFGAM due to the hidden air (Viper is a wonderful wonderful coaster. I can't stop singing the praises) so I spose that'd put me in the airtime category.
So quite frankly I have no idea. Its all fun. Know what I mean?
I can't choose between them. I love the intensity of MF, but the airtime I got on Shivering Timbers was like nothing I've ever experienced. I'm looking forward to riding my first impulse, which I would imagine will have both.

If the coaster just goes up and down, up and down, I tend to just be like "ehh" (that's the only thing stopping me from breaking hell and high water to get to the Timbers). What I really want is a ride that will toss me around a bit, suprise me with a few tricks, make me get my buut out the seat once or twice, and almost make me black out. That's not asking for too much is it?
Anyway, based on the above, you might be able to understand why I so much want to ride Titan... ciao, moi --Moo-Psi-Moo "Milk it! Milk it!

I like both but like airtime a little more. I love Phoenix for the "soft" air but Phantom's Revenge is 'da bomb for "intense" air. PR is just brutal sitting in the back, especially 44 rides in a row. Right Greg? ----------------- Christ how do you kids do it
