Which is your favorite type of Coaster?

Inverted
or
Top-Of Track

Both Coaster provide a different experience, but I think that Inverted coasters give you a difference Sension that nothing can give you!

What do you like?

i personally prefer inverted because they give you the leg dangling out of control flight feeling better than a floorless does. also i think it improves elements like the cobra roll and vertical loop.

Let's teach RCTfan and Bush English and make them get confused!

"Shoot"
"Sensation"

Just joking man. Had to say it. Use spell check and brain check. ;)

I like inverts a lot better overall, but my favorite coaster is a hyper.

My fave coaster is Kumba, therefore I prefer On-Top of Track coasters. I guess I like the traditional way of coastering. Being in the front on any Inverted is awesome, but sitting anywhere else behind that offers little to be seen IMO.

How about neither, off to the side of the track?

gonna have to go with On-top of track. I like the feel of inverteds better, but you can actually sit somewhere other than the very front on a regular coaster and still see things other than what's directly below you.

I can't say inverted because that means all Giga, Hyper, Woodies, Stand ups, Floorless, Flying (eww), Bob-sleld, and things like that would be left out. Over the top is best

On top until they make a wooden inverted style that is longer than the beast and taller than Steel Dragin and Faster then STE with more loops than that thing they are building over at Thorpe.

I prefer coasters that are "top-of-track". I think that (most) giga/hypercoaster > inverted > sit down/ stand up loopers. So... if I'm riding Medusa(east) I'd rather be riding Raptor. But if you're on a coaster, does it really matter?!

Well I would prefer it to be inverted, but have too inferior track designs.

I think that non-inverted coasters have a lot more varieties of ride. Also, although I like inverteds, I don't really notice that there's nothing below me unless I'm in the front car.

Definetly inverted for me. The SENSATION of flying is tremendous and can't be duplicated by a non-inverted coaster. I hope this is the future of coasters.

I think they both have their appeal. Inverted definately give more of an out-of-control feel to me, especially sitting on the left, but the view is quite obstructed if you're anywhere but the front (I'm not too big on waiting the extra half-hour). Top-of-track coasters, on the other hand, give a lot more open space and freedom during the ride, especially with such an open design as Millenium Force and so on.

I love Hypers & Woodies so I guess that answers the question.
