I have been on the PKI racer and Lightning Racer. And Lightning Racer is by far one of the best coasters I have ever been on!!!

All racers are great. I have been on the Racer at Kennywood and PKI. The Lightning Racer and Gemini and I love them all. I especally like the hand slapping that goes on in the curves of the Gemini and the Racer at Kennywood. But my favorite raceing coaster would have to be the Lightning Racer at Hersheypark.

Best dueling coaster, visually (I haven't ridden it yet) is Dueling Dragons

Well the best racing/dueling coaster is the Lightning Racer since it's the only one that actually races and duels.
-As for racing coasters I like the Racer at Kennywood and Gemeni at CP nothing beats the hi fiveing the people in the other train.
-For dueling I bet Dueling Dragons is very cool. I'm only guessing since I never rode it.

Gemini is great but nothing (I have been on) beats the near collisions on Dueling Dragons. Gwazi is a great set of coasters but the dueling element in non-existant.

Yes I agree with Brad, Gwazi has 2 intense coasters but the dueling aspect is not there.
Uh and,
DEULING DRAGONS IS THE BEST DEULING COASTER!

Dueling Dragons only because they MAKE them duel by slowing the lift hill. I'm sure Lightning Racer is darn wicked, but I haven't been on it.

I have been on Ligthning racer and DD. (others as well, but those are the best... heres why...)

Lightning racer has absolute perfect timing. there is no telling who will win, and provides good individual track elements while still havinbg track where you can go eye to eye with your opponent.

and DD has interlocking corkscrews facing oppositre directions. when i rode that, it was easily the greatest roller coaster moment ide ever had.

Kennywood's Racer is, in my eyes, the most perfect example of the concepts behind the racing coaster.
However, if we're rating them on how fun they are, Gemini wins by a mile!

I like Gemini, because you can slap hands on every turn.

Ive only been on two (American Eagle,Gemini)(Three if you count Space Mountain) and Gemini takes the gold. On AE you cant slap hands because youre too far away from the other train, and the red side (inside track) always wins by a long shot. Gemini is at least close to each other.

It seems that everyone is leaving the FIRST and BEST dueling coaster, twisted sisters!!!!!! It rocks, and although it may not be astheticaly pleasing, it gives one HELL of a ride!!! Gwazi is second with Lightning Racers 3rd

When I rode Twisted Sisters this year I didn't think much of it. The cars were leaving the station at the same time but the timing of the duels was off. I just thought it felt like two intertwined coasters. They seemed to compliment each other though one had strong laterals while the other had air.
--I'm not sure if this is true but I heard KK usually only runs one side a day switching each day. When I was there they started running one then opened the other side later. Any truth to this?
