If you search this me, there has been A LOT said about El Toro...

It know it surprised me. I loved it!

Will there be more coasters like El Toro in other parks? BGE would be a good place for something similar since this is what they are lacking.

I want CP to install one. Since they can't seem to maintain wood, an Intamin woodie would be perfect for them.

What BGE needs is a terrain-twisting GCI w/Millenuim trains with a nice 125ft first drop! LOL

El Toro is an excellent coaster. I agree with you HallTD....either is the current Mean Streak location or up front once they pull the plug on Transport...and since Kinzel seems to have signed some sort of lifetime deal with Intamin, perhaps our wishes will come true.

El Toro is certainly in my personal top 10 list. The pacing, air, and "headchoppers" all work together perfectly.

I spent TWO AND A HALF HOURS in line in order to ride El Toro on Columbus Day!

I do not regret it!

For me, El Toro has a major pacing problem. The beginning is fast and fun, but the train slows down too much for my liking during the last helix in the infield of Rolling Thunder.

It would be like taking S:ROS, and removing the last two bunny hops before the brakes. That coaster's finish, in my opinion, is what El Toro is lacking. So, for me, El Toro has a great beginning and middle, and a very weak end.

Really, I like the cable lift system, and the ride is butter smooth. But the problem, for me, is in the end of the layout. If CP builds one, they won't have to squeeze it in like Great Adventure did, which will hopefully give a better layout.

El Toro for me was the most exhiliarating, intense and orgasmic roller coaster experience...EVER. And that was two days after riding SROS in new england.

Their woodie that was properly designed from the beginning seems to be doing just fine.

As long as I have to be inhumanly stapled into the car of El Toro it will always be, a far behind, 3rd best of Intamins wooden coasters.

^I rank it No. 8



(For those of You in Rio Linda, the 46 Smilies represent the 46 Roller Coasters I was able to ride because of "Compensation" due to an Overbooked Flight! ;) )

Oh, to seriously answer the question, tho...

Because it's not in Ohio, Indiana, or Pennsylvania.

If you keep bringing this stuff up the CoasterBuzz Conspiracy will be that much more obvious to the outsiders.
