In response to your favorite hyper coaster:

^ :lmao:

I know it is not, however, the reason for that logic, is that people say a Alpine Coaster with a 200ft+ tall drop, does not count as a hyper, as it does not feel like it. Technically, Expedition GeForce is a Mega coaster, as that is what Intamin calls it. Nice to be back in this topic, it has been a while :)

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

What Alpine Coasters have a 200 ft drop?

^ Yep. It is funny because D.Ellis is really NOT a mental guy, yet that looks insane. Pretty sure this is over 200 feet, so is it a hyper?

^I guess it's a hyper if you count it by drop/height, not by the traditional style. Now that I think about it, most mountain coasters have huge "drops" since after the lift they only go downhill and it's all one shallow "drop!" ;)

BOOM! You get my logic, however, it is not, because it does not feel like one. You would not come off and go, "possibly in my top three hypers" however, I feel it can work the other way around, so Ex G for me is my only and top hyper. It is how I imagine one to feel, so until I get on a real one, that is staying as my top hyper.
