This has been brought up before, and I think we can decide once and for all. Heck, if you go to the Superman Escape site here on Coaster Buzz, the other says "Should this be here?" I say no. Coasters need at least one of these three things- turns, lifts, or loops. How about you? What do you think?
------------- Ah, Roller Coasters. An hour wait for a two minute ride.
Ummm...I think we have a dead horse here. I don't see how this debate could somehow be decided now after so much fruitless discussion. The arguments are out there; it's pretty much up to the individual to decide.
And now to close the thread, here's a moderator... ;)
I'll just say Superman: The Escape is the world's tallest THRILL RIDE. Millennium Force is the tallest CONTINUOUS CIRCUIT coaster in the United States. I guess I would call it a coaster but I would always use the words "shuttle" and "continuous circuit" in these types of discussions.
well it cost like 25 million to build and it was a huge investment and the whole debate is pointless. A carnival ride can count as a coaster like at many parks. But when some huge expensive new thrill is put in that doesn't run like other coasters people jump on it. being deemed a "coaster" all of a sudden makes it the best ride possible I guess. But I'd rather ride S:TE at SFMM than the Wildcat at Cedar Point or the Galaxy at Canobie. and yes I'd rather ride it a lot more than Goliath Junior which probably cost the park a few thousand to put up.
