What looper has the most airtime?

Haven't been on all of them, but out of the one's I have done, I hafta say the ejector airtime on SFOT's Swartzkopf masterpiece Shockwave is unbelievable. It only has the two big loops at the beginning, and the only restraint used is a lap bar. The rest of the ride features a series of near stand up ejector airtime drops, and a few hairpin curves thrown in. So with no horse collars, it's of the few loopers I've done that gives me bruises, it throws you into the lap bar so violently, totally awesome! They call Anton a madman for the intense positive g's his loopers deliver, Shockwave has to be one of his best airtime monsters.

Vortex. At the corkscrew's mostly but there is a whip coming out of the top of the crest that gives major airtime if you are near the front.
DOWN WITH TRIM BRAKES!

Fire Dragon, on the crest over Ice's in-line twist. I came flying out of my seat, even with the OTSR's. Totally suprised me.

The most airtime that I can remember getting on a looper is the Corkscrew at Cedar Point in the front seat. I was out of my seat most of the ride. It was incredible.

It is awsome being on the very back seat on Corkscrew, because it whips you over the hill and the second hill gives you incredible airtime!

Here here! CP Corkscrew has loads of air on the second hill, especially up front. There's nothing like hearing all that change rattle around in the nose of the train :)
Back seat of PKI Vortex on the first hill has a lot of float all the way down, plus quite a bit coming off the mids.

CP's Corkscrew. The secound hill is the best.
SFO's Batman. Not only does it have good airtime, but has good airtime on the brake run.

In my mind it would have to be the second hill on the steel phantom. If you let go of the restrainst you will float all the way down.

King Cobra at PKI in the back seat, along with the Vortex in the back also produce a huge amount of airtime.
