Best Ride Drops!!!

What is the best drop of a ride besides MF's drop. I think its Goliath at SFMM because first its huge, and second it goes under the ground which i think is cool!

Other than the MF, hum that could be a little tough. Coasterman12, I'll have to agree with you on Goliath. In the front of Goliath at night is so sweet. Seeing a pitch black tunnel far below you and in seconds your in it. The green lights on the first hill of Goliath at night also have a cool effect.

I'd have to say Magnum, it's just a crazy, wild drop and it takes my stomach away every time!

Front seat, right side on S:ROS at SFA. If you reach out far enough, you can feel the grass blades against your fingers, plus you get to stare straight down the incrediblt steep drop.

The best first drop would be the Georgia Cyclone, dives nearly stright down through it's own sturcture. It is the most amazing first drop I've been on besides MF. I also like the Gemini's first drop.

Well, I have two answers for you. First, the drop on Goliath is one of the most intense and fantastic drops on a coaster ever. The anticipation of the first drop is nail-biting on that thing! Secondly, while I don't like the coaster all that much, the first drop on Stealth is pretty awesome. Also kind of frightening at first. You definately feel the g's pulling you toward the ground. Your whole body is hanging by just a vest and a lap/leg bar. That's it. The coaster is underwhelming, but the first drop is one of the most memorable ever. :)

The American Eagle is my fave. It's the only one that still scares me @ the top. You just keep going further and further down, with intense airtime, until you know the train can't make it horizontal again, but there is a 20 ft ditch to level you out. Then at the bottom, you can see the cool looking wood work that for some reason reminds me of some kind of cathedral.

Skyliner at Lakemont, back seat.
If you have ridden the ride in the backseat, you know what I mean. ;)

Dont know how SF treated the Thriller/Taz Texas Tornado. But ten years ago this drop was like falling out of a jet! (Not quite as high, though)

Yeah, those twisting Schwarzkoph drops look crazy. Also, I would believe that drops like Gwazi and Twisted Sisters would be cool with the trains going at each other, but I don't know. I think SOB's drops is underrated. 200+ ft. on wood is just crazy. Shivering Timbers' drops is like the higest perfection of ride drops though. Especially the twisting drop after the turnaround.

There's something about Gemini's drop that takes my stomach away every time. It goes to it's steepest point extremely quick and I think that's what causes that. It also has great airtime in the back. Aside from that, I would also say the Beast's 2nd lift hill. It isn't sudden, but the whole time you're anticipaing the helix that is to come. It just keeps picking up speed, getting faster...faster...faster and then you get the jolt of a lifetime when you start through the helix. Probably my favorite moment on any roller coaster.

"The Drop" as it is known to us here in SoCali, is the drop just after the second turn-around on Ghostrider. Literally ejecting you from your seat. "The Drop" plummets you into what could possibly be the greatest section of coaster ever!
