How would you guage how "anticipated" a coaster is? That seems like a very odd question.
Buuuuut, I'll throw my two cents in anyway. While I'm looking forward to X a LOT, I think I was more excited about Millennium Force or Raging Bull. Raging Bull because it was at my home park, Millennium Force because it's 310' tall. :)

Perhaps to a hard core coaster enthusiast this could be considered one of the most exciting rollercoaster of all time. We really haven't heard too much from Arrow within the last decade. It's exciting to see the comeback of a company.I always love underdog companies.It will be interesting to see how the company impacts the industry with post Ron Toomer and the NASA tecnologies.I would also love to see the concepts come to life such as: Virginia Reel, 64 super train, The 700ft fish hook coaster, Arrowbatic etc. But it's hard to say if this is the most highly anticipated coaster of all time. I remember being very excited about Gemini, Beast, Bat, Demon Drop, King Cobra, Magnum, Viper (M.M.)Batman, Superman The Escape, Stealth,Arrobatic,and X.
What's anticipated by some is not by others. I'm highly anticipating X because it's in my home state and because it looks to be one INSANE coaster. I highly anticipated Millenium Force, Goliath and Medusa West, and I'm highly anticipating all the new coasters for 2001. The one I'm anticipating the most? Deja Vu. More so than X. But to say that one coaster is the most anticipated is incorrect. Each coaster is anticipated by us enthusiasts. Some more than others, but not so much to where one is the most of all time. Just my opinion. Peace. :) ------------- Medusa at Marine World: the best in the west!
Come on Skyboss, we all know you hate SFMM, you are starting to sound like a broken record. (note- some of you are too young to remember records) If you hate Six Flags that much, simply do not patronize them.
Personally, I like to see SFMM in the spotlight. From what I hear, The Mountain will really shine in '01. X looks insane!
Not to me it could very well be like SOB, ya know everyone couldn't wait for it but when they rode it they hated it, or it could rule! One thing though MMountainFanatic, use the Spell check! You spelled GOLIATH w/o the "I" and Millennium with only 1 "n"!

I showed many people in my school pictures of MF before it was built, and absolutely everyone of there reactions were,"Oh my God!" I think that MF was the most anticipated coaster. One thing that was smart with, was they advertised a wide area. I never saw any advertising for SOB and I live in NE Indiana.
Believe me, SFMM WILL market X into the ground, and that's a good thing for the park. More peeps means more butts in the seats, which in turn means more coasters and rides each year. I still don't agree that X is the most anticipated coaster of all time though. Maybe Revolution or Corkscrew like Skyboss mentioned. Something like that. I am also glad that SFMM will be in the spotlight now, more than ever. Peace. :)

Were you guys even born when Corkscrew debuted? I don't EVER remember anything even close to Space Mountain at Disneyland. The construction was documented almost daily on most evening news stations. Oh man, the zoo Disneyland was when that thing opened. The question wasn't what was the most important or revolutionary, but what was the most anticipated, Space Mountain is your answer. ------------- Life's too short! Let's go ride some coasters!
