Photogenic Coasters

(Sorry if Im repeating a topic.) What are some really photogenic coasters? I think Magnum is the most Photogenic coaster out there, along with Top Gun at PC,  and alll B&M Hypers!

Mean Streak, of course. It sucks as a ride, but it sure is pretty to look at.

Lightning Racer at Hersheypark, and most other GCI's they know how to make them look great, and ride even better.

You know what Jeff?  I know I've never been to CP, but I don't get it!?  Many people say it sucks, but I downloaded the POV, and it seems to be a kick butt woodie?  Is it the trim on the first drop that ruins the coaster?  It seems to carry mad speed throughout and it seems very long!

I would have to agree with Talon. It just looks really cool with how twisted it looks. Also how close it comes to the people walking down the exit ramp(and the ground in general).

We've been over this before, and I agree with good ole' Mean Streak. Like MuzicGuy said, Top Gun is great: http://www.starcoasters.com/backgrounds/topgunsunset800x600.JPG

Homey -- this is a CLASSIC example of not being able to judge a ride by the POV.  Until you've ridden it and felt the kidney-bruising bumps, no POV will do the ride the true (in)justice it deserves.

I agree that it sure does LOOK good on film, though.  For that matter, PLENTY of wooden coasters are very photogenic -- Twister, Phoenix, Beast (what you can get ;-) ) Legend, KW's Racer all come to mind immediately as well.

The Boss and Screaming Eagle at SFSL are both very photogenic on that wooded hillside.

Nitro looks amazing.  When your in the park, you mostly see its massive hills just rising out of the woods, it looks awesome.  Also the Wildcat at Hersey its a great looking coaster.

Thats so dissapointing about mean streak, it looks like such a sweet coaster, and I'm taking my first trip to CP this year.  I'll go into it subjectively, but i'm sure you guys are right :(

I vote for Dueling Dragons.  The way the 2 different color tracks intertwine is breathtaking, but even better are the action shots of the near misses with the 2 trains.

Even the trains themselves look great, with the sculpted dragon heads and the teeth sticking out from the sides of the front seats.  Oh, and the queue ain't bad either.

I agree with joey isch, the Racer at PKI is extremly photogenic more so back when it first opened in the 70's.  A new paint job would make taking pictures of it oh so much better!

I think the most beautiful coaster in the world is the White Cyclone.  It is huge, perfectly maintained (it is Japan, after all) and white as white can be.  Check out http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1174.htm?Picture=5 or http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery1174.htm?Picture=1  I'd say that is pretty sweet.  My other choice.  Lochness Monster...gorgeous use of land, and the color sets off against the lush greens magnificently.  mmmmmmmm......
