There will be many new roller coasters opening in 2001 that look unique, intense, unbelievable, or just plain fun. Which one do you want to ride the most.

A new giants haunts Dallas this Spring....The Titan will be unveiled to the world.

Nitro seems to be the most anticipated to me. They're all over it on danimation.

I think a lot of people are anticipating for wildfire. It has beem a long time since b&m has put out a sitdown looper, and only the third one for that fact.

I thought the question was, what is the most talked about coaster? By far the answer would have to be Nitro. How tall is it? How steep is the drop? How will it compare with RB and AC? ect.

X would be second, people seem to be very facinated by this ride. Once construction begins, everyone will be talking about this coaster, pro or con.

I am anticipating the opening of X and Dejavu at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Nitro got a lot of hype due to its late announcement. It got really interesting, especially during that period we could see a huge tower piercing the Jersey sky, but no one knew how tall it would end up. Like Matchbox 32 said, everyone wanted to know how tall, long, steep, etc.

Still, though, X has gotten its fair share of publicity. In my opinion, it's one of the most revolutionary ride ideas to come down the pike in quite some time.

Though it hasn't been talked about as much, the Phantom's Revenge situation has been surrounded by a lot of hoopla. If we add in all the rumors, speculation, guessing, and debate that lasted from March 'til the end of summer over what exactly was going to replace Steel Phantom, though, I think PR is right up there with X and Nitro.

Most of all, though, I'd say Disney's California Adventure has been the most talked about new-for-2001 attraction. Sure, it is a whole park, but still... that's the kind of publicity only Disney can generate.

We seem to have forgotten about the coasters announced early in the off-season, such as Talon and Hypersonic XLC. These are going to be two big-name rides in '01, and come opening day, I'm sure we'll hear quite a bit about them.

Titan is the most talked about in Dallas
but I'll admit it.
Nitro, X-Flight, and Hypersonic have been the most talked about on the net.

A new giant haunts Dallas this Spring.....The Titan will be unveiled to the world!

Well, the only new ride I'll probably get to ride this season is "Talon" and I'm looking forward to that. I'm more excited about Hypersonic. If this ride is successful, we could realistically see 100mph+ 350ft+ versions spring up!

X looks pretty cool too. I'm eager to how about the first drop and some of the new elements that the ride contains.

I want to ride Hypersonic XLC and X the most. I also want to ride Deja Vu too.
