I have heard a lot about zero g-rolls, like they look and feel weird, its the best part of the ride, and it seems like it has ended, but it hasn't. What coasters do you think have the best zero gs?

A lot of enthusiasts believe that the inverts on B&M's have the best 0-g rolls(Montu and Ice dragon have killer 0-G rolls) buti actually think that the floorless 0-G is even better. The best has to be Medusa's and Kraken's zero-G's. They both have excessive intensity.

Kumba's. I had my hands up until we got to the zero-g roll at which point I freaked and grabbed my restraints. one of the last times I was on B:TR I was front row, middle seat and I did the same thing. what made Batman even worse than Kumba was that there's that fake road beneath the zero-g roll. that is truely one of the most amazing elements ever designed and I bow down to B&M for their genius.

By far for a '0' G roll, of the 3 coasters I've been on that have them, Montu wins. On Kumba, it feels like a '1.5' G roll, and Batman, it must be a '4' G roll. Montu was the only one that accually had me feel weightless, and it has the best view :)

Montu was sweet, but Talon's seemed head and shoulders above to me. Maybe I just caught it on a good day, but it seemed like i was suspended there for a full second as I gently spun around. This element was greatly complemented by the other pops of air on the coaster. Hulks was also pretty decent, but I find that most zero-g rolls tend to just smash me into the restraint and then hurt.

Kumba, Hands down the best 0g roll I have been on.

Medusa was probably second best. SFGADV

Some of the zero-G's seem to just whip a rider around instead of providing weightlessness such as the previously mentioned Batman. Kraken, Kumba, Montu and another green beemer in florida, Hulk all seem to provide the weightlessness with intense velocity.

SFMW Medusa is the best zero-g roll. Better than Top Gun at PGA. Put your hands up to feel more weightless.

Tomorrow Ryan you will experience it!

I liked the Great Bear's zero-g roll. It was quite a thrill, even though it is simular to every other zero-g. Also, even though I have never ridden it, Tornado at Särkänniemi Amusement Park looks like it's zero-g/inline twist's look interesting.

I like Raptor's zero-g roll. It is very smooth and fun. But the only B&M inverts I have been on are Raptor, Great Bear, and Talon.

I can't think of a good signature.

I have to agree with Kumba, I didn't know what to expect cause it was my first and it really surprised me. I was disappointed by Hulks, It didn't seem to give the floating feeling, same with inverts. Maybe it's just where you sit.

Medusa on the left side with a loose otsr is amazing the best inversion I have ever felt. It throws you to the side and its great!

Kraken by far has the best zero-G roll I have ever been on. It is so smooth that you actually feel the zero-G and not the intense lateral G-s coming through it like on Batman the Ride. Montu's is pretty good as far as inverts go. Hulk get's an honorable mention for theirs in my book. It is pretty cool coming out of the launch into that spin.

Worst? Toss up between Kumba and Batman the ride.

Kumba's is hands down the best inversion I have ever experienced. I don't see how you couldn't love it.

Also, lets remember that we are kinda comparing vastly different elements. Between the invert's Zero G rolls, to the original Camelbacks on Kumba and Dragon Kahn, to the Dive Roll on Hulk, to the redesigned Camelbacks on the floorless coasters, we are talking about completely different animals here.

Kumba's was the only one that I actually felt a durration of weightlessness on, The rest just seem to be a split second thing.

I just don't see how Kumba's is that good. I remember distinctly getting my jaw jarred against the restraint at least one time going through the zero-g roll on that ride and I know that I get SLC quality headbanging on it every other time I have been on there.

Kraken's camelback roll is so smooth and completely amazing that I can't see it being beat unless it is on one of the Medusa's I have yet to ride. That camelback is a major reason why I love Kraken as much as I do.

I haven't ridden Kumba in 4 years. I can't imagine it being in such disrepair as others have claimed it to be in such a short time span, but if it is, i'm seriously pissed.

And Kraken bored me to tears.

I think insted of all the other inversions, B&M coasters should have nothing but Zero-g rolls. Oh well, it's just my opinion.
