What type of drops do you prefer most on hypercoasters?
1) Dip, then drop. (Apollo's Chariot)
2) Drop. (Goliath)
3) Turn then drop. (Sob)

I like just a drop like Goliath.

Dip-drop drops like Raging Bull's are the best. I don't know why, but I like it better than Shockwave (I know, it's not a hypercoaster, but it's only 30 feet too short to be one, so it's close) and the way you drop and turn at the same time.
V2, Deja Vu... how can it be better? Add Viper! Oh, wait. It's already there!

Yea I wish they would do that on a hypercoaster!

Straight drop as in Millenium Force.

I like B&M's drops because they have the dip before, which makes the whole train fly down the drop. I don't like Magnum's drop, because the front car hangs over the drop forever. I do like MF's though, because the lift is so fast.
"Hold on tight, with all your might, and enjoy your flight on the Raven!"

I like just straight drops if you are sitting in the back, because you actually go part of the way up the lift fast. I've never been on a B&M hyper yet(wait 'til this summer :)), but on Riddler's Revenge, it's cool to have the short dip, because the front isn't dragged down as far.

Plain drop like on S:ROS and Nitro, because in the backseat you get sucked over like your being pulled into a black hole.

I like the dip and then the drop or a dip and then a turn and then a drop. In otherwords, I like the dip the best. I find this gives the best airtime in the first drop.

I love the turn and drop. It builds the suspense even further.

i like raptors and traditional slow lift and straight drop

I like the standard drop. When you curve down, lower, lower, and lower. Like on MF, Goliath, and SROS

I like the straight drop...MAGNUM RULEZ! lol.

Straight Drop, I don't like waiting, just get to the ride.

I like NITRO's drop best.

I like the Raging Bull drop, especially in the back row.. The first dip, then straight down.
AMERICAN EAGLE!! (RED TRAIN)BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with Subbie18, the little dip then into the BIG drop. You get ejected out of your seat as you get hurled over the first drop. The Raging Bull is a good example of this.

Keep it simple. I like the good old lift into drop like on Magnum or Superman: Ride of Steel. You get a nice pop of air in the back seat on this type of drop.
