bird of prey showdown

Wednesday, September 10, 2003 5:01 PM
i was wondering which bird of prey coaster do you guys think is better, Talon, or Raptor? I've only been on raptor and it was one hell of a ride, but is talon better? i'll probably get my first ride on it next year, if not then in 05 with dorneys new floorless :)

While many will tell you Talon is the second coming. I have to disagree. Out of all the Beemer inverts I have ridden I rate Talon only above SFADV's Batman.

My invert ranking goes somethign like this

Raptor, Top Gun:The Jet Coaser, SFGAM's B:TR, Great Bear, Alpengeist, Talon, SFGADV's B:TR

Of course I actually enjoy Arrow Megaloopers so what do I know.

Adding Montu and the Dragons to my list in November.

If given the choice I'd choose a hamburger over a hotdog anyday of the week.

Talon is a great coaster but Raptor is deffinatley the better of the 2. Talon is better for airtime and smoothness but all other aspects of an inverter are better on Raptor

I prefer Raptor to Talon, though Talon is a great ride. It just doesn't have as many elements(inversions, helixes, etc.) which are important to an Inverted. However, Talon is excellent given the amount of space it works with.

For the record, Montu is my fav Inverted coaster.
