Steel Force takes that crown. I went in thinking, Ok rated #4 coaster in the world before, must be pretty good. I came out thinking it was 10x worse than Magnum. Still not a bad ride but I just had high expectations.

And jus t to tell ya CoasterSam, I went into Desperado thinking that it was going to be horrible, but I came out thinking that it was awesome. It just has the dangerous feel to it. All of the headchoppers are dangerously close, and it seems pretty weird that you're out in the middle of the desert. That was prolly the biggest suprise of my West Coast Trip, besides Ghostrider.

I wouldnt say worst I would say least favorite, since it is still enjoyable. Its gotta be Nitro. I get more unimpressed the more I ride. Wheres the Air???

Couldn't agree with you more CoastingOhio. I think Desperado has the most awesome location of any coaster. It's like you're flying in the middle of the desert with absolutely nothing around for miles except these awesome mountains (catch a ride at sunset, it's unbelievable). The first drop is the most gut-wrenching I've ever experienced, and at 230 pounds if I get air it's amazing. And I do on this coaster.

pepsi max big on at blackpool pleasure beach is dire. it has a curving drop which takes away most of the sense of height, has no air time, has the most painful carriages ever, has rougher track than any SLC and is being held together with clamps at many places!

Some people don't know how to take a hint.

Even when it is staring them right in the face and is more of a warning then a hint.

Is it time for Playa's award?

Best: Millennium Force. Generic, I know, but the drop and the constant speed is just too tough to beat.

Worst: Magnum. I can handle a bit of roughness, but not that much.

Spryboy: Yes I have, and it was FANTASTIC! Plenty of float over the bunnies and the way it bottoms out hard in the back on the 1st and 3rd drops earned it the nickname "BOOTYSLAM: The Ride".

On my hyper rankings it fall right between Millie and NITRO.

And to answer this (doomed) question:
Best: Raging Bull
Worst: Titan (strange as the first 3 elements are so similar)

Well since ive only been on three and I loved them all i would have to say...
Best: Millenium Force was just a thrill no matter what anyone says
Worst (but still one of my favorites) : Magnum XL-200, it had its rough points but i loved the turn around and the tunnels you went in during the bunny hills.
The other one i have been on is Son of Beast which is my favorite wooden coaster and my second fav hyper

P.S. this typic will be closed pretty soon

I'm not gonna mention names. I really didn't care for a certain Hyper Twister that I rode recently. It was like an overhyped summer movie blockbuster...All special effects with no plot.
