Next to Dueling Dragons, Montu is my favourite Inverted. A must-ride in my book.
NB: I havent been on Alpengeist or Raptor but plan to next year! But according to review Ive read - Fire is like a grown-up Raptor and Ice is like a grown-up Batman. I rate Montu alongside these two and must be one of the top 5 inverted in the World.

10+ this is the best of the inverts. I have been on most of them. It is so fast! and you fly through the tunnels and ditches!! I drool thinking about how many times i walked on it. Trust me it is one of my favs!!! At first i thought this thread was a joke. to answer the question, yes, fast, 10+, your welcome
Montu is my favorite out of the inverts I've been one (All the american B&M inverts except Talon, and one or 2 Batman clones). ------------- - Peabody (Who is considering changing his sig to: There is no such thing as "best", just personal preference.)

Have ridden, B:TR (SFGAm & SFStL), Raptor, Fire, Ice, Top Gun (Carowinds), and Montu. Montu is head and shoulders above the rest. TG is cool too, it's like a little Montu (same inversion sequence). Montu was so mean and intense in the 1st half that I actually *needed* the midcourse just to catch my breath. The Immelman and the batwing are just fantastic. On an overall coaster scale, it gets a little less than 7, but amoung inverts only, I give it a 10, a ten, a freaking TEN! lata, jeremy --who will one day (soon maybe?) ride Alpengeist, but doesnt hold much hope for it as it just looks like a super-sized raptor (blech!)

As cool as they were, for some reason the gators have been removed and the pit has been filled in with gravel!(not sure if it is temporary) You can see a picture of it on my website. ------------- I'd Rather Be Riding Rollercoasters www.mycoasters.homestead.com/mycoasters.html
It was after that. I think they added one right before the batwing...that's not the biggest problem though....it's the midcourse brakes that are the problem, they're WAYYY too strong. Now during the second half, you "kinda" eventually get through the end, and "kinda" get through the corkscrews. It's not the Montu it used to be, at least not when I was there in spring of 2000
