A friend and I were discussing whether after all of TTD's hype if some will find it a letdown, and it made me wonder what coasters you were excited to ride and then left with that not so satisfied feeling? Mine would have to be B:DK at SFNE and Viper at SFGadv.
I agree with you on Desparado. I saw it on a coaster video and thought wow what a ride,but it was actually all speed and nothing more. My question is why MF? Is it for the same reason? I ask because although I've never ridden it, I've never heard anybody say it didn't live up to the hype.
I didn't know it was physically possible for Millennium Force to let a rider down. It is my favorite ride (which isn't really saying much) and saw most riders had quite an enjoyable time. However, you are quite entitled to your opinion, and I have no problem with that. Also, I don't think Gemini really had much to live up to; unless of course you are speaking of the time that it opened. In that case, it is a much different thing.

Raven at HW. Everyone brags about "Raven Air." Well for being the #1 (how?) wooden coaster, I must have hit it on a bad day. Legend outdoes it a hundred times over. Then again, I could also be spoiled by another certain woodie named Phoenix. ;)
-MarimbaGuy87, who thinks if more enthusiasts rode the Phoenix it would be ranked higher...

Definately Goliath... I had heard that there weren't many negative g's, but I was surprised to find that, literally, there were none. (Well, not noticable anyway.)
X sort of did too - it isn't a bad ride, just short and a little rough. I rode it in early March of this year, so read into that what you will. Maybe it was just all the anticipation.
I've heard about Hulk being a little boring through the second half, but, having ridden Hulk a whole ton, I just can't agree with you. Sure, it lacks the strong positive forces of Goliath (tee hee), but it is a pretty unique B&M the whole way through, and the brake-drop in the back is really spectacular for an OTSRed coaster.

Titan was fairly disappointing. I was all hyped up about it have watching it be built and everything. Actually, I was just excited, because SFOT was getting another coaster. However after I rode it, I left with the feeling of something missing... I mean, a lot missing. I guess I just overhyped it. I would never wait over 30 minutes for it again.
