Favorite Lift Hill

Saturday, January 27, 2001 6:13 AM
My Favorite Lift Hill has to be the Magnum's at CP. It is 200 feet high, and you get to look out on lake erie. The MF's lift hill goes way to fast, but the Magnum's takes a while, building up much excitement.

I like MF's hill because of the speed. It adds to the thrill of a spped coaster.

I like Millennium Force's. In about 8 seconds you are at the top of the lift, and it's like goodness gracious, that's high!

Millenium Force, because it goes so fast and can sometimes feel non-existent.

Son of Beast's lift is kind of creepy to me too. It's long and you get more of a feel how high you are.

I've asked many people at my school how long they think the lift takes on MF. Most of them say 5-10 seconds. The speed sure takes a toll on their sense, because it takes 22 seconds. If I wouldn't have known how long it took when I rode, I probably would have said 10 seconds too.

I think steel dragon is the ultimate here, but I would personally say Goliath. Just because it almost stops you at the top, with that trademark SFMM view.

MF really needs to take a breather at the top to feel scary, right now it feels too much of an "engineered" lift, like nothing can go wrong.

My favorite lift hill is The Incredible Hulk. You're in that tunnel and all of a sudden Boom! you speed up and go through the zero G roll. It is the most exciting of them all.

Steel Force's lift is awesome. You look around and all you see is the people getting smaller and you see Thunderhawk get smaller. Also you get to look at the road to the left side of you get smaller :)

Talon is going to rock, roll, and take its toll!

The Incredible Hulk Coaster's lift hill is the best of all time. Who wouldn't love being shot out of a tube at 60 mph and into a zero-g roll?

I like Gemini's lift hill because of the competition of who is going to win is a lot of fun. I also think Mean Streak gives you a nice view.

What ever coaster I'm on while going up.

The lift on Volcano is pretty good. just because there is none.

I like the lift hill on SFNE's Superman. It provides a beautiful view of the Connecticut River, and there are no stairs on the side so if you look over the side, you really get a feeling for how high you are.

My favorite lift hill has to be Millennium Force's lift. It may be not be the slowest or best to some, but to others out there including my slef it is the best. Going up and build up what little anticipation you can it great. The only recommendation i have for MF's lift is that they slow it down a bit at the very top to make it look like you stalled or stoped then go over the hill.

The best lift has to be SOB. That horrendous noise when the train first engages it and that sudden silence after the train leaves it is awesome. But try leaning over the car on the Lake Erie side on MF. Talk about vertigo..... Bad mistake!

Millennium Force, it takes about 20 secs, look at the video and you will see. Also the view is outrageous

The Giant Dipper in San Diego. The sound that the lift makes is music to my ears. It is unlike any other lift I have been on. Beautiful, just beautiful. Oh, yes, and then there is the ocean view to your right, and a giant grassy field to your left. [homer drewl]
