I have ridden Apollo's Chariot 10x's in one day. It currently sits #3 on my all time top ten, but I have yet to ride Raging Bull. My personal coaster arousal is airtime. By looking at both layouts, it looks like Apollo's Chariot gets more air. But I haven't ridden Raging Bull so it is unfair to draw conclusions. So, restricted only to those who have ridden both, please answer my two questions. Which of the two have better air, and which of the two are better overall?

Although i never rode Apollo's and shouldn't really be responding, my friend has been on both and narrowly prefers Raging Bull,but he said Apollos has more air. But that is his opinion you should go to SFGAm it is IMO better tham MM, but still not as good as CP although very close.
#1: Millennium Force
#2: Raging Bull
#3: Tie B:TR/Raptor
#4: Viper (SFGAm)

Apollo buries Bull in my opinion. I rode them both within a week of each other (by some twist of fate where work travel followed vacation). Apollo has a good old-fashioned woodie layout with a wicked helix turn around, so it has to be an air machine.
Bull is a fantastic ride, but it's a different kind of ride. With most of the peaks being turns, you don't get as many moments of airtime. That's not a bad thing, and in fact the ending is pretty intense. It just depends on what you like.

Apollo is fantastic at night as it dives into a bottomless pit. But I like Bull a lot too. You really can't compare the two.
Desperado, now theres a ride!
