BEST AIRTIME COASTER?

Tuesday, October 31, 2000 11:38 AM
I AM INTERESTED TO KNOW WHAT YOU ALL THINK IS THE BEST COASTER IN THE WORLD WHICH DELIVERS PURE AIRTIME! THERE MUST BE MANY COMPETITORS, COULD YOU GIVE ME YOUR TOP THREE?

HERE'S MINE:

1. GRAND NATIONAL , BPB (UK)
2. GREAT AMERICAN SCREAM MACHINE, SFOG
3. THE BIG DIPPER (BACK SEAT), BPB (UK)

ANY MORE?

1. Shivering Timbers - MA - No other coaster comes close.
2. Viper - SFGAm - Stand up air throughout the ride.
3. MF - CP - Great floater air on the hills.

1)SFNE Superman-No steel coaster in America can match the airtime on this coaster.

2)Shivering Timbers-This one goes for it.

3)Tremors and Ghostrider-These are the *real* stand up coasters.

4)Apollo's Chariot-Awesome floaters.

5)Viper(SFGAm)-Most underrated.

The first giant bunny hop on MF does it for me, nothing else comes close, except for Legend at HW in the back seat.

High Roller -Valleyfair!- when they have the trims off. If you're nice and you ask for it, they might do it.

MF---floating all the way over that Magnum hill just can't be beat.
Viper@SFGAm--WOW!! What a great little woodie this ride is and it only gets better with age.
Blue Streak@CP---A classic through and through.
Magnum--Airtime galore.
ST--'nuff said.

Double dip on Jack Rabbit at Kennywood...only one hop of airtime, but the force of that one hop makes up for it. No other coaster has such violent airtime.

Magnum's third hill....almost 5 seconds of sustained airtime. returning bunny hops are great too.

Blue Streak at CP...but it was MUCH better before those (blank-blank) racheting lap bars.

MF...not as good as Magnum, but lots of sustained airtime. Final bunny hop is great.

Villain...incredible airtime on all its hills, and each hill also gives a little lateral push in addition to the airtime.

Hopefully, after next summer, I will be able to add Shivering Timbers and Raging Bull to this list!

#1 Shivering Timbers, Does anything come close?
#2 Magnum XL-200, Best air in Ohio, IMO.
#3 Ghostrider, I love having this at my home park!
#4 Raven, I am surprised nobody mentioned this yet.
#5 Goliath, Even though there are only 2 good air events, those two are epic! (second drop, camelback)

So you want a coaster in your backyard? I hope you have a big backyard.
