Anyone catch sports center 7am edition. Millennium Force and some inverted, couldn't tell what it was (not raptor). They compared them to the Clippers. I was like that's a low blow. The Clippers are having a roller coaster ride of a season. So they put MF in there. OUCH! They had video of the first drop and the second drop. *** Edited 12/16/2003 4:29:30 PM UTC by Crashmando***

In another thread someone said it was Montu. They also said Millennium Force was featured when the team was on upswings and Montu was on downswings, which is funny!
Millennium force rules = upswing.
Montu isn't good = downswing.
There. Perfect for my liking.

It's not a good idea too start such a conversation about MF and Montu. So let's not go there.

Of course it is. It's the offseason! (I wonder if that excuse will work for my finals. I'm sorry my paper is incoherent. I couldn't concentrate because it's the offseason).

MF was on both the down and up part, and the inverted (I'll say, Batman by the looks) was only in one shot for the up part.

Montu rocks i don't know what you are saying.

Yes, the dead stop on the midcourse is wonderful.

Oh yeah well...your dog is lame!
In all my rides on Montu I've never come to a dead stop. Slowed down a lot yeah, but that's what happens when people can't take high G's...the ending flatspin still packs a nice punch, and the first half is better than almost every other inverted out there (I haven't ridden Katun or Pyrenees yet for comparison sake).
Montu roxors my boxors. The end.

I rode Montu with no expectations... and I thought it rocked... it seems that enthusiasts need to stop whining about what coasters aren't, and enjoy what they are... and don't ride the coasters that aren't enjoyable.
Regardless, anyone got a screen capture of the invert?

Yeah I agree, coasterdude318? More like coasterenthusibrat#1! Take that!
Oh, and no I don't have a screen capture of the coasters in question on Sports Center, but I doubt it was all that fascinating. :)

Well excuse me for having an opinion!
Montu's first half is decent. It's not excellent, but it's average. The batwing is wondeful, however. Then comes the midcourse, and the near sleep-inducing second half. Montu's second half is the epitome of "forceless." Okay, so I enjoy Montu's setting and the batwing. But that doesn't make a ride for me, especially when the rest of the ride literally is nothing. I like forceful rides. Montu is not forceful (not even close in its present form anyway). Therefore, I don't like Montu.
But hey, why should I care what someone who rates Nitro - another winner in the "forceless and boring" caterogy - as his #1 thinks? ;)
-Nate (who experienced a harder midcourse stop on Montu than on any other coaster on the planet on every single visit)

Hey, why don't you go ride your #1 steel at The Great Escape, you know, their reused mine train you love so much, and leave the good coasters for the big boys, hmm?!
And you should care what I think because I can beat you up. So there.
Joe, who if he hears coasterDUD318 say one more bad thing about my beloved Montu, might just have to open a can of whooptooshie

It now seems as though my last post was made in vain.
