Holiday Park's Expedition GeForce takes this year's title in the Internet Steel Coaster Poll. Six Flags New England's Superman: Ride of Steel came in second, but is still quite a margin ahead of Millennium Force and Nitro which repeated at #3 and #4, respectively.
Nitro elements stand out more, the hills are larger, and look at the setting in the woods next to the lake next to the parking lot. SS looks like a good coaster I wished it was higher on the list to help represent b&m for making good hypers.Whizzer boi these aren't any tamer than the other two if anything they are more intense.
I think that the design is slightly tamer on Silver Star- but as Wolf accurately stated- the trims (at least 3) really rob this coaster of almost all potential airtime. It probably tied with the roughness of TdZ as the most disappointing coaster of the mainland part of the ACE trip. (for me at least)
silver star is designed by bnm and fabricated by mack. Sinse bnm never fab their own rides anyway it (useally giovanola or some other company in ohio does it) it is just as much a bnm as nitro. Nitro is trimmed too but not that much and the air is still there.
Nitro has a trim at the top of the third hill which is barely noticable and at the valley of the third drop which isn't on, until you get to the MCB those are the only 2 trims that you don't really notice.
