Which coaster does everybody think has the most airtime? After riding Magnum last summer, I would have had to say it, but after riding Phantom's Revenge this year, Phantom's Revenge easily wins the battle of greatest amount and strongest airtime on a coaster.
I'm going to Doney Park this weekened and I'm interested to see how Steel Force compares to the "Phantom".
Shivering Timbers. Cornball Express has a ton of air in the back rows and might have the most air per length of coaster track. Steel Force probably has the most air of the steel coasters I have ridden.
For woodies, I would have to say Knoebel's Phoenix... the airtime is simply unreal, especially on the final speed hills leading back into the station. As far as steel coasters go, after riding Nitro two days ago, I would have to say that's the one. That coaster definitely makes it's own comfortable seats seem superfluous, particularly in the back!
Steel Force? That ride offered very little airtime, and I rode it a dozen times during the Con. Took forever to find a good seat, and even that seat wasn't that good.
Nitro has a ton of air, so do the Superman: Ride of Steel rides.
Knoebel's Phoenix is a wooden air machine, and really isn't even that big. You're out of your seat for nearly the whole ride - and in the FRONT! Still, everyone who's been to Michigan's Adventure seems to vote for Shivering Timbers.
the phoenix at knoebels offers great airtime. ur off ur seat more than u are on. the raven at holiday world also has some great air time. and no steel force doesnt have much airtime, unless ur talking about the bunny hops at the very end, there is some air there.
SFNE Superman. People need to ride this thing, it's just amazing, and I envy the fact that it's way over there on the East coast. It's as close to perfection as *I* believe you can get with steel. Why aren't *these* cloned more often?
------------- There is no such thing as inner peace. There is only nervousness and death.
Maybe I'm just a little biased because Holiday World is one of my home parks, but the Raven and even the Legend have some really good airtime. ------------- We are the ones who wait in line for hours for a 45-second thrill, and consider it time well spent.
