Dominator has gone vertical!

Tuesday, February 12, 2008 11:09 PM
Well one thing you've gotta give credit for with regards to Dominator is that it breaks the cookie cutter mold in terms of elements when compared to most of the other floorless coasters out there....I do agree that the only things missing from the layout are the zero-g roll,not to mention the dive loop.

If it weren't for space limitations SFI probably would've had B&M design these two signature elements into the layout but alas chose not to,which I don't get because instead of the OBT following the loop they could've had a dive loop going into a zero-g roll leading into the station flyby approach to the cobra roll just as easily without sacrificing too much midway space.

And then it would have been JUST like every other floorless out there... I liked how Dominator was a little different.

^ I agree with you 100%. Some people like those cookie cuter molds for some reason. For example, there are those select few that like Batman Inverts (at least they claim they do), better than other inverts.
Like you, I enjoy riding a coaster with elements that make it different from other forms of that coaster.
After riding both of them, I would choose an invert like, Great Bear over Batman.

Call me insane but I'm pretty sure the people that claim to like the Batman inverts better than others actually do like them better than others.

P.S. I don't believe that any B&M built since/other than the Batmen(s) have the positive g's you'll find in those tight helices near the end of the ride. They're amazing. On the whole, however, I prefer the more "swooping" inverts...inversions are overrated.

IMO. :)

I think people that make this claim are either SF fans or Batman fansl, not really coaster fans. I rode a few Batman Inverts and just do not get near the thrill I get from inverts like Raptor, Alpengeist, or Montu. Not even close.
Hey, to each there own.

Vater's avatar Right. Just like everyone who claims to like S:ROS better than other hypers are just Superman fans.

ApolloAndy's avatar I am on the Gator side of the floorless thing. My pref.

(BKF)Dominator, S:KC, Kraken, Medusa West, Medusa East/Scream, Hydra, B:DK(B:TR).

I don't know why people rail on Hydra so much. I thought it was quite a fun ride (though still not as fun as other floorless options).

I also don't find much appealing in the B:TR's, but I wouldn't call someone who did, a liar...

Thanks for yet another shining example of how you "respect" other people's opinions.

rollergator's avatar ^I only CLAIM my opinion is my opinion, just to stir the kettle. Honestly, my beliefs are typically the opposite of my claims. ;)

Does make it tricky to remember all the lies, though...what a tangled (intra)web... :)

^^ Pay attention mamoosh before you go putting me down again. If you read my entire post, I said "to each their own." That is called respecting others opinions. You need to look in the mirror before you go claiming I don't respect other peoples opinions.

and then tack on "to each their own" on the end and expect people to not think you're a condescending jerk. Sorry.

Its my opinion bud. I don't appreciate the name calling. I have never called out someone personally and called them a jerk, even though there are many that deserve that title.

I think that collective 'many' is starting to tire of somebody 'round here.
Just a hunch.

^^You aren't calling individuals out per se, but you have a habit of lumping a group together that doesn't agree with your opinion.

Just take a look at your top 5 and your top 5 overrated in your signature. Who says any of those coasters are overrated?

I can be a jerk like you and say that MF is about one of the most overrated coasters in existence. But people that like MF the best must be Cedar Point fanboys. So I guess you are a CP fanboy, right?

If Webster had the word "coaster tool" in the dictionary, a picture of you would be right next to it.

You killed it for yourself when you started replying in the Mitch Hawker's coaster poll topic.
