The rides I have rode I will put an asterus by it.

Ghostrider over Orent Exprees [ is this the transport ride at SFMM?}

Riddler's Revenge*[most underatted coaster in the world] over Top Gun* [PGA}

Golitath* over Batman: the ride*[exact clone of Top gun at PGA.

Roar* over Mamba[never herd of Mamba}

The Giant dipper [seen] over Manhattan express.

3.Medusa (MW)[seen] over 14. Viper* (MM) Medusa looks far more intiminating, eventhough Viper has great corkscrews
Desperado over Stelth, I am going to ride stelth Wensdaay Aug 9, This is tough!!!! Can't beat 90 MPH though.
2.Superman: The Escape (MM) [seen] over . Wild Thing (Valley fair!) Superman the escape had to long a line at the wrong type of day so i couldn't ride it. It looks EXTREME! It's the loundest ride you'll ever hear. You can hear this thing throughout almost all of thr huge park. If u walk under it, its absoulty defening.

Orient Express and Mamba are both at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. Orient Express is one of only two coasters in the U.S. to have interlocking loops and it also was the first in the U.S. to have a kamikaze curve otherwise known as a boomerang. Mamba is a hypercoaster and thats pretty much all I know about it.

BTW Todd: B:TR and Top Gun [PGA] are nothing alike. Most notably, B:TR has five inversions whereas TG only has three....

1.Ghostrider
8.Riddler's Revenge
12. Batman: The Ride (MM)
4.Giant Dipper
6.Mamba
3.Medusa (MW)
7.Stealth
2.Superman: The Escape (MM)

That's my take on the coaster poll. Goliath doesn't compare to the Hypercoasters of the Midwest and Eastern US.

BMCOASTER

Raging Bull #1

Medusa and Giant Dipper have advanced and I think I know what BMCoaster will vote for when I come up with my midwest bracket!
