Best Drops....


Recommended Posts

Wood-

El Toro- all four big hills are amazing. I can't even keep my hands up down the first drop most of the time

Phoenix- all the bunny hills, especially towards the end.

Boulder Dash- Too many good hills to count, but the tripple up is very memorable (guess that's not really a drop though)

Jackrabbit- The double dip of course!

 

Steel-

Bizarro at SFNE- Pretty much every drop is airtime heaven!

Superman at SFA and Ride of Steel at SFDL- The third hill is amazing.

Apollo's Chariot- All drops are good, the photo drop and drop off the MCBR are awesome.

Goliath at SFOG- Plenty of good drops.

Shockwave at SFOT- the best "old school" steel airtime hills I've experienced.

Millieneum Force- The first drop

Maverick- First drop, my vote for second best first drop, right after El Toro!

Titan at SFOT's first drop is verry underrated as well. It's got decent airtime in the back and it just lasts forever!

^ No one said that because this thread is from 2008... It's been lost in the bowels of TPR until coastercrutchfield went on his posting spree for all the "Best of" threads he could find.

 

That said, I like the first drop of Cornball Express, and the drop in the woods on Raven...

Wood-

Thunderhawks second drop(not the backside of the hop after the first drop) is one of the most intense drops on any ride, in my opinion. Downward curve through the rides structure. Great drop.

 

Jack Rabbit was the first coaster I ever rode. So add the nostalgia to the double dip and it's easily one of my favorites.

 

Those and the Thunderbolts last drop stand out against the rest for me. I just love the charm of a thrill that's decades upon decades old and still holds up against the modern rides.

 

 

Steel-

 

Millenium Force, obviously.

 

Apollo's Chariot has five drops that would count as some of my favorites but two really stand out for me. The first drop and the third.

 

Phantoms Revenges second.

EVERY drop on Cornball Express

The triple part of the triple down on Voyage

Raven's 5th. drop in the back seat

Maverick's 95º in the backseat

Almost any drop on Evel Knievel in the back seat

Boss's double down

EVERY drop on Shivering Timbers

Back seat on Georgia Cyclone... wow

Back row of Mystery Mine, the drop with the flames

The drops on Deja Vu

The transition (it includes a small drop) on Patriot from the last helix to the brake run, sit in the left side of any row... It's awesome

The double down on Viper (SFGAm)

First drop in the back seat on just about any Arrow looper (especially Vortex)

SheiKra in the back seat

Any drop tower (even frog hoppers, those things are fun!)

 

 

Thats the ones that come to mind

Steel - Millennium Force, the small bunny on Phantom's Revenge before turn around back into station...any B&M hyper first drop...just something about them for me

Wood - El Toro (GADV), Hades (plunging into that darkness), the drop inside the return tunnel on The Voyage

Drop - Drop towers at KD and KI, Hip Hop Drop at Beech Bend (trust me), Demon Drop (now at Dorney)...something about feeling like I am in a trash compactor interests me...not sure why.....

Best? First drop on Millie in the very front or very back and Diamondback in the first row.

 

Underrated? Gemini's first drop, the first drop on Vortex at KI (in the back), and the drop out of the turn around on Shivering Timbers (again, in back).

Wood: Any drop on Cyclops especially the big crazy sick one

 

Steel: Shockwave at SFOT third drop. So sick in the back!

 

Tower Ride: Drop Zone (I hate the CF name so I still call it by it's correct name) at King's Island. I run out of breath yelling at least twice everytime!
