Favorite first drop on a Steel Coaster

Recommended Posts

I'd have to say Maverick, Millennium Force, or Magnum.


Other than Spongebob at MOA, I've never been on a ride with a drop like Maverick's. That beyond vertical drop is a new sensation.


As for Millennium Force, that's the second tallest coaster I've been on, and the massive size of the drop does it for me.


Lastly, I don't know what it is about Magnum, but despite being a little shorter, it still has a great drop.

Front row on Behemoth at night! But X2 wins in the "Most Creative" category.


As for smaller steelies, Whirlwind at Seabreeze has a shockingly badass first drop (especially if you're sitting backwards) and it's only 50 feet tall!

SFMM's Goliath and SFOT's Titan coasters. After a teasing lift climb that feels like eternity you crest the top then looking down you can see a tiny black square way below in the distance and you think to yourself "there's no way we'll fit in that!"

Hmmm, there are a lot of great ones. My top 3 are:


1. Millennium Force - Just awesome, especially in the back car

2. Raging Bull - Pre drop, then diving down into a tunnel. Again, back row rocks the best

3. Phantom's Revenge - Although the second drop is the money shot, I'm a huge fan of this twisting dive


First steel coaster drops I want to experience - Superman Ride of Steel (SFNE), Diamondback, Apollo's Chariot, Expedition GeForce, and Goliath (SFoG)
