That's until you've ridden the SFGam version :-)

But the most intense ride I have heard of is that Schwarzkopf coaster in West Edmonton Mall in Canada. I forgot the name, but I heard it pulls over 6 g's! I also heard that Japan's Moonsalt Scramble pulls more g's than the prior one.

It's called the Mind Bender . And I've heard Moonsault Scramble had been dismantled . It may have been the largest shuttle-looper . When you see the Mind Bender on TV it has OTSRs , unusual for a Schwarzkopf ?

All girlie rides. The Big Shot on the Stratosphere is one bad#@% ride. If something happens, you may end up in Arizona.

The trains on MindBender were reworked after a fatal accident not long after it opened. The authorities blamed Schwarzkopf's design and the outcome of the inquest put him out of business.

I think the Gold Rusher at SFMM is the most intense ride out there today...no wait, actually it's Taxi Jam at PGA, no, maybe it's Cobra at SFMW...they are all too intense, it's hard to choose...;) I actually have no clue, but since I've only ridden California coasters, I'll say it's a tie between Batman and Top Gun. :)

Medusa at Marine World: the best in the west!

My vote goes to the Taz Tornado at SFOT.

ABSOLUTELY no question... Big Shot on top on the Stratosphere. More intense than any coaster ever built.

Goonsta, have you ridden SFFM's version during Fright Fest? I have yet to see a more intense coaster experience. (then again, I didnt think SFGam's version was as intense as SFMM's WITH lights...)

Big Shot is not "intense," it's scary.

My vote for the most intense would instinctively be Bandit at Yomuri Land in Japan. I am sure you people have heard about this ride... (6.6 gs)

What happened on the Mind Bender to create a fatal accident?

Well ok I havent been to too many parks yet, but my vote has to go for SFGAM's batman. Not the biggest inverted ever made, but no trim breaks, no pauses, just non-stop "where's my oxygen mask?!?!?!?!" fun!

By far SoB.

PEOPLE!I know there is a Coaster at SFAW in Houston but if you have been to Magic Mountain latly and say Batman is more intense than Goliath!!!!!!!!!!!! Top Gun at PGA can rival Golitah with it's 5 g loop!

I think it would have to be a tie between the Stratasphere space shot and Oblivion at Alton Towers, UK.

Nobody has mentioned SOB!! Hello? Has anybody been on this thing?! It is absolutely insane. The Helix after the first drop is just CRAZY! I wouldn't count out Taz's Tornado at Astrowold, I wanna GET ON THAT thing.

Coasters- a little slice of heaven
Friday, October 20, 2000 6:24 PM
I said SoB, and also don't count out Face/Off.

SOB is pretty intense, and so is MF, but it's smooth.

What about Drachen Fire at Busch Gardens? Did they shut it down because it was too intense, and pulled too many G's?

Tazs tornado is now called Texas Tornado at SFAW.I just wanted to say that:).Its a very fun coaster but the first two loops are the best wit all those g's.Its a really fun ride.

The Big Shot on the stratosphere sounds brutal!From my experience, the most intense ride ever is the Roll-o-Plane at Kennywood.
Fear the Wrath of the Phantom!

The most intense ride I have ever expieranced would be the Steel Phantom at Kennywood. No other ride even comes close.
