^I'm sure you'll be adding diamondback pretty soon Wink

OK, I'm going to exclude WDW coasters, because all of those are pretty much my favorite. Very Happy

  • 10. Whizzer at SFGAm
    9. Viper (which is the Cyclone mirrored) at SFGAm
    8. American Eagle (Blue side) at SFGAm
    7. Iron Wolf at SFGAm
    6. Batman the Ride at SFGAm
    5. Disaster Transport at Cedar Point
    4. Raptor at Cedar Point
    3. Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point
    2. Raging Bull at SFGAm
    1. Millennium Force at Cedar Point

Here's a cool video in case you don't know what top thrill dragster is. The music also goes pretty well with it, and it's amazing how much shots you can get out of a 12 second ride.


Here's my coaster counter btw... http://www.coastercounter.com/totfreak7

Jake,
Diamondback is being constructed at King's ISLAND in Ohio, not Kings Dominion.

And nice top 10 list! I just don't understand how you rank Iron Wolf over Mantis...

Also, Top Thrill Dragster is pretty cool, I really want to ride it, but I think I'd rather ride Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. Its taller, faster, and has another hill after the big drop.

Here is a similar music video to that Top Thrill Dragster video, but of Kingda Ka... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so8WmIpzxws

And here is a list of each coaster I've been on... http://www.coasterfanatics.com/sec_members/member_ridelist.asp?id=106073

Oh yeah, I get confused between the two. Razz

Well... Here's how I see the two.

Iron wolf...
Bumpy
Everyone hates it
Kills your head

Mantis...
Tall and fast compared to iron wolf
Smoother, but still bumpy
Longer and more inversions

The reason I like Iron wolf a lot better than Mantis is because of it's layout. Where in Mantis it's just in an open area, Iron wolf goes through a bunch of trees, and has a lot of low-to-ground maneuvers, and a sweet ejector hill. There's also this one part where it's like your running on the tree's. Kind of like one of Millennium Force's overbanked turns, except not over banked, and obviously a lot shorter. It's just something you have to ride to see why It's a lot greater of a ride than it seems. There's also rarely any good videos of it on youtube because of how bumpy it is.

OK, that seems like it makes sense, but people say that the height and speed are such a little difference that you can't even tell (from people that have been on both). So to me, there are only two debatable things about which are better... the second hill, or having to be stuck with shoulder harnesses. Top thrill dragster's lap bars are, if not smaller, the same size as an old woodie, I think that add's a ton of excitement to the ride, and in my opinion, more than the second hill in Kingda Ka, where you're stuck with those shoulder harnesses around you, which does take a lot of freedom away, especially probably when going down the vertical spiral (which is amazing, my favorite part of TTD Very Happy)

Just speakin' mah mind.

I guess I could understand why you prefer Iron Wolf over Mantis, I mean it is the original B&M. Very Happy

Well I read somewhere that Intamin stopped putting lapbars on their launching coasters, Xcelerator at Knott's Berry Farm and Top Thrill Dragster and the only launching Intamins with lapbars.
And honeslty, I don't think having a lap bar or over shoulder restraint really makes a difference. I've been on Storm Runner at Hersheypark a number of times, which has an over should restriant, and honestly I didn't even realize that throughout the ride.

So Kingda Ka is just the better coaster in my opinion. I also believe it has MUCH better theming than Top Thrill Dragster... Razz

The inverted coaster you're talking about would be Great Bear. It seems like a great coaster.

It is a great coaster.
Its even better than Alpengeist... Alpengeist is just too intense to be considered fun.

Since you were two? Yeah.

Also, http://www.vmkunleashed.com/forums is remaking VMK. Unfortunately though, you can view their website to see what happened.

So it's pretty much impossible to re create VMK without a professional company, and a company like that would not be able to do that, because there would be severe copyright issues.
