Most Entertaining Stations

Saturday, July 19, 2003 9:39 AM
I was wondering what you guys thought the "Funnest" station was/is. I have heard people say that the atmosphere in the Beasts station used to be amazing but that now it has become an average station. Try to avoid naming Disney or Universal stations because obviously they will have some of the coolest themeing and that doesn't give the normal theme parks a fair chance. So.. what is your favorite "normal" roller coaster station?

I have to vote for Riddler's Revenge. The pumping, catchy techno music combined with the lighting effects creates a fun atmosphere that makes waiting less tedious.

Alpengeist. I like the little chalkboards here and there and themeing is great.

Millennium Forces stations always seems to be hopping and full of energy. The toaster lights and music always get the crowd going and the exit station is always full of cheering riders.

Silver Dollar City's Wildfire has a great Station. Smoke shoots out of vents whenever a Train Departs!

that Riddlers Revenge techno music always gets stuck in my head when i get off the ride... kind of annoying but catchy at the same time. I'd have to say Batman the Ride myself, I can't help but remembering the crashed police car, the junkyard, and the huge fan when you enter that tunnel with the dripping raindrop sound effects.

Dueling Dragons' especially if you include the queue house. Who can resist a quarter mile fully themed attraction in and of itself?

Viper at SFGAm station is very cool with the the "old western shack" type theming. Also, B:TR at SFGAm and other parks. And of course Mr. Freeze and Millennium Force.

dont forget those Superman: Ultimate Flight stations. Hearing everyone freak out when they assume the position is hysterical.

Too bad, I've never been to Cedar Point. Millennium Force seems to be the winner. I think techno music always helps raise the excitement level in a station. The driving melody and thumping rythm make for a fun atmostphere.

Well if their themeing is what appeals to people, why shouldn't they say it? It's not like they're hurting the "normal parks" feelings lol.

I like the Incredible Hulk's que. The music, the light effects, the music. It comes together great.

Space Mountain has the coolest station, with the omni-max galaxy. I hate techno music, so i didnt like MF or Riddler's Revenge or X.

Once again, PLEASE refrain from using Disney or Universal rides as your answer. I KNOW their rides have the best stations. Please only include normal stations. Also... what music plays in the X station?

It's a bunch of different songs played in a loop. One of them is Confusion (the one in the Blade soundtrack) and another Get Busy Child. There are another 3-4 but I don't remember the names of the tracks.

If anyone is ever scared of coasters, take them on Millennium Force. Not just because of the size, but the station. When the new train comes in to load, it's got some creepy, almost ufo-ish music going. Back when I was scared of high coasters, the music creeped me out.

TTD's station is just cool. Not entertaining, but it's probably one of the best looking stations out there, especially at night.

The energy on the platforms of Gemini and Magnum is tough to beat.

The loud alt-rock in Medusa West's platform was pretty cool, too. Definitely put you in the right mood.

I can take or leave the stuff they play in Millennium's and Wicked Twister's station, frankly.
