Which currently operating coaster answers the topic? By that, I mean intensity, i.e. riding it.
Superman the Escape & Tower of Terror Incredible Hulk Rock 'n' Rollercoaster & Superman the Ride Volcanos Weight launched Shuttle Loops Flywheel as above Mr Freezes Speed Chiller Flights of Fears Calif. Screamin' SUE & V2s
Any other launched coasters?
Hypersonic XLC will most likely be the most powerful Lauched Coaster when it opens.
I've ridden both Reverse Freefalls & Hulk, that is all. The RFFs are awesome. ToT is slighly more powerful & the car goes up a bit higher. I could be mistaken as ToT is 380ft tall comapared to STE at 415ft. Both do 0-160mph in 7 secs. STE was the first coaster to be designed to hit 100mph. However had problems over a year or two which were fixed in ToT which actually beat STE to 100mph! How's that Yanks? :-) ------------- Home Park - Wonderland Sydney, Australia.

Since i have ridden all of them This is how i would say it. If you want intensity ride STE in the Rain If u want a powerful luanch ride SUE trust me that thing really does pull ur head back. But the most powerfull of all i think is monte. That thing goes from 0-65 in like 3 seconds or something, all i know is that i never rode without my head on the back of the car after my first ride. ------------- Golioath Rocks the west but Millinnium Force Rules The Rest
I can not believe so many of you are saying that Montezooma's Revenge has a powerful launch! It launches from 0-55 in around 4 seconds, and that isn't that great, compared to most coasters these days. The most powerful launch I've experience is Mr. Freeze at my home park of SFStL. 0-70 in 3.75 seconds, what a rush.
Raven Rider, simma down naw. Sorry, but not all of us have had the chance to ride Mr. Freeze or any other new launched coaster. Montezooma's Revenge is still powerfull, no doubt. The newer ones my get up to a faster speed in a faster time. But, it is that 1st second of launch that you feel the power in. ------------- -I see stars because I just rode Flashback, can you see them to?
