I love both, but my ideal coaster would be a wooden twister with Shivering Timbers' first three hills and LOADS of airtime. My number one requirement is airtime, then wooden, then laterals, then smoothness. If you get all four in one ride, great. But as long as it delivers airtime, I'm happy. Favorite out & backers-- Shivering Timbers & SFNE's Superman Favorite Twisters -- Knnoebel's Twister & Hershey's Wildcat ------------- -Matt in Iowa 193 coasters ridden #1 Shivering Timbers
Well i enjoyed Yankee Cannonball more then the SFNE Cyclone which is a Twister, again out and backs usually get a lot of airtime, YC gets soooo much airtime, and has some laterals, cuz i remember being thrown around.

Well... Roar (SFMW), is currently my favorite wodden, but then again, I haven't really been on many woddies. The only REAL out n' back woddy I'ved tried, is Colossos at Heide Park, and the experience is not really good. Talking about hyper coasters, I'ved only been on two of them, and they're both twisters, but they are also good, I'm gonna ride both Silver Star, and The Big One this summer, so maybe I'ved changed my dicition, when the time comes...

Brunetts for sure.
I prefer twisters. Twisters have good laterals and sometimes good air as well. (a.l.a Viper)
Same thing with steel hypers. A layout like Raging Bull, Millenium Force, Superman (SFNE) or Goliath (SFH) is always more welcome than a simple out and back. It's not that I don't like out 'n backs, rides like Nitro or AC rank very well on my list, the issue is the layouts are just, well, dull. A twister can combine the goodies that an out 'n back has and make it a heck of a lot more interesting.

I like twister becuase with alot of out ands back coaster there is somthing that usaly messes with the amount of airtime you get ,such as seat divders,seatbelts or being stapeled to the seat by a tight lapbar, also On blue streak at Cedarpoint I kelpt hitting my head on the hard headrest! As with a Twister design your being tossed around the car more, and with that when the car changes direction you get airtime and it just feels like everything is wrong, yet its so rigth.
Ot and back and twisters combined *cough*The perfect coaster*cough*. SRoS @ SFNE is both, the first part is out and back, then it turns into a sweet twister section, then some bunny hops, but to compare SRoS to other coasters is just unfair.
I was actually arguing w/ CoasterGuy about this the other day. Goliath looks fun, but would be way better if they had more than that one measly camel back (heard it's weak like B&M air) and if the drop was steep. Had they added 1 2 or 3 bunny hops at the end, changed to the station location, and made the drop 10-20* steeper, the ride would be crazy, but a 60* drop on a modern day hyper and a single airtime hill just doesn't utilize the speed if you ask me.
