That "OTHER" Intimidator

I actually don't mind any B&M, but I also don't find any outstanding. AC was incredible when I rode it first in '01 (it was my first hyper), and I haven't been back since but I can't imagine it holds up against the likes of S:RoS or PR.

Goliath Over Georgia and Tatsu are outstanding. Apparently so is Manta. :)

^I agree.

I dunno...I think B-TR blows the doors off of most every other ride as far as intensity goes.

That being said, I find most of the B&M's I've been on to be pretty intense (especially Nitro). I just wonder if the sheer bulk, if you will, of the vehicles makes said intensity seem less pronounced. You know, like driving in a car at 60 mph isn't nearly as exhilarating as riding a coaster doing 60.

I think that depends on the road--and car--you're driving. ;)

Well, that's true, but by the same token, I suppose it also depends on what ride you're riding.

I find that the older I get the more I like the softer B&M rides. I can ride those more than once where as something like Raptor, Batman or Kumba I can only handle maybe once in a day. I still love those rides but my body can't take them any more.

Same here as far as inverting coasters go. It's weird, though, I can marathon Afterburn all day in the front seat, but put me in the back and I'm one and done.
