I rode Magnum 5 times in the course of 2 days and not once was I fascinated by the experience. You are telling me that I would have to ride it 5 more times over a longer period of time, even though I am 8 hours from the point, before my opinion of it not being 'all that', is justified?
I never said anyones opinion isn't valid if they only have ridden a ride a few times. Just that the opinion is not based on a lot of experience, and *may* or may not change over time.
For me, I didn't 'get' the 2nd half of Magnum when it was first built. But after many laps I now really enjoy the bunny hops.
I can't really think of a ride that is very popular and i couldn't see where it got its reputation. Even if i didn't like it as much as others, i can see where the popularity is. The closest thing i have is thunderbolt, which i still reguargd highly, but will never put it on any of my top lists.
I just rode villian and I loved it. It was intense great airtime for me and some OK laterals.
MF did very little for me. I hate to say it but I have to. I guess I caught it on a bad day. The drop was awesome but the rest of the ride was boring. I got no airtime after to drop, probably because of CP's ride OPS jamming it down on my crotch so I could not move. I don't like overbanked turns at all, they take all the lats out of turns.

What is wrong with you people? Dissing coasters left and right... Actually compiling lists... (Medusafanatic, wtf?)
I love every coaster I get the chance to ride. I don't care if it's an old Arrow looper that beats me up, or an ultra-smooth B&M floorless bereft of intensity or G's... I still love it.
I think that some of you are literally trying to add shock value to your posts by claiming that you don't approve of some of the most stunning coasters on the planet (Millennium Force & Goliath to name two). Then again, some of you are simply too nitpicky about forces. And others... why exactly are you browsing coasterbuzz.com again?
-This "me too post" is brought to you by people that enjoy coasters because they are fun!
I love all rollercoasters I can ride but the three "popular" ones I didn't get would have to be Magnum, the Raven and Batman: Knight Flight. I don't hate them or anything like that. Perhaps my expectations were high for them or that others that I have ridden in their respective category were far better. I would still ride them though, no matter what.
381 rollercoasters and counting. . . counting down for me to come back home to America. :)
I don't get the " Firey Fist O Pain" coaster craze..
I rode Kingda Ka, I thought it was kinda "blah"Last edited by billb7581, Thursday, August 19, 2010 11:18 AM

Holy 8 year old thread, Batman!
Seriously...how does this even happen?
^^ blame the new guy, who wasnt sure whether it was more annoying to start a thread about something that was already covered before, or to bump an older one.
Every time it does, I lol myself into exasperation. Seriously.
It's be fun to see if I posted in the thread 8 years ago, and see if I still agree today...
...Okay. I didn't get SOB, which hasn't changed. I get magnum, which hasn't changed.
And I get Millennium Force, which hasn't changed.
What has changed is that I think MF is the perfect coaster, and the greatest ride in the universe.
That was fun!Last edited by LostKause, Thursday, August 19, 2010 12:29 PM
In 6 years, I'm sure there are a lot of new people here and a lot of new popular coasters that people didn't get. If billb7581 had started a new thread, no doubt somebody would have jumped down his throat that there was already a thread done about that.
If it's an old thread, just don't look at it if it bothers you.
At first, I was wondering how a thread here got to 158 posts in the less than 12 hours since I last was on CBuzz that wasn't related to Magnum finally sinking or something like that. Then I looked at the date of the first post.
I don't get the love for SheiKra or the Schwartzkopf looping duo of Mind Bender and Shock Wave. I think with SheiKra it's due to my love of intensity, and I find SheiKra to be pretty graceful. With the other two, they're both good rides, but I just didn't find them to be overly remarkable.
I'm sure there are more rides, but those 3 jumped out at me.Last edited by sirloindude, Thursday, August 19, 2010 12:41 PM
