Favorite coaster manufacturer?

If you could ride only one manufacturer's coasters who's would you choose?

My pick is B&M, these guys only make the best coasters in the world. There rides are always smooth and they pack tons of exciting elements into every ride they make. *** This post was edited by Beavis on 2/6/00. ***

I have to agree from all the rides at CP favorites are raptor, & mantis. Lots of elements and speed, just plain fun. B&M

I love wooden coasters the most so I must say CCI, the master of making wood fun.

B&M or GCI for me. I think GCI makes Great Coasters (punn not intended but fits) look at how great Gwazi, Roar, and Wildcat are. The Lightning Racer is looking to be another Great Coaster too.

I can't wait for the 2000 season to start!!

CCI all the way! I love B&M for steel, but woodies are my fav. I'm an airtime and laterals junkie and CCI's the one company out there delivering the goods. The only GCI I've done is SFMW's Roar and although its a great ride, it lacks significant airtime and any laterals. Great turns and fast paced, but actually too smooth and overengineered for it's own good. One or two good ejector drops and some rib cracking laterals would probably help make it a top 10. As it is, it's a great woodie that the whole family can enjoy.

If every manufacturer of coasters went belly up except B&M I would be happy!!!!

B&M. Montu was my first B&M coaster, and it is my all time favorite ride.

B & M was just too trendy for me to say it.

I agree with Kennywoodfan, to a point :) I'd pick Vernan Keenan (designed CI Cyclone) & Harry Baker (built Cyclone)

Of the modern manufacturers, currently I'd say B&M, but then I haven't had the opportunity to ride a CCI or GCI creation. My opinion may be changing this summer after Villain and Lightning Racer :)

I like DHMorgan and B&M. But I also include Intamin and Giovanola in B&M.

Do we really have to chose a favorite? All right, all of them, especially B&M, GCI and Prior and Church.

If I HAVE to pick, it would be any of John Miller's creations.

Now don't laugh! I have to say my favorite manufacturer is Arrow Dynamics.
Yes there coasters arent very smooth and sometimes they will give you headaches. But that's what I like about them! It gives a thrill to the ride.
And for my second choice I would have to say B&M Inverted coasters. Not there floorless, sit downs, stand ups, or hypers. I just love there inverted coasters especially Raptor and Montu. As for there other coasters, they deliver no thrill.
In early April I went down to Orlando. There I visited IOA and BGT. I do want to say I did not like Dueling Dragons even though they are inverted. Hulk was fun but provided no thrill. And Kumba must be the most overated coaster. This ride was Boring! I found waiting in line to ride it, more exciting.
