The Official Mitch Hawker 2012 Steel Coaster Poll Thread!


Recommended Posts

I believe that if Maverick had I305's restraints, it would rank higher. And I also have to agree about Millie. She is smooth and has a great first drop, but that's about it. I have yet to ride Biazzro, GeForce, or a Mega lite, but from my understanding, they look wonderful.

 

If SkyRush had I305's restraints I have a feeling it would have been my #1. Haven't ridden Maverick yet.

I think this wouldn't quite be the case simply because the restraints on Skyrush provide so much freedom of movement that you fell like you'll actually fly out but on I305 I felt even on the strongest airtime moments that I was still safe and comfortable due to how cumbersome and restrictive the restraints are, this would sort of kill what I consider to be one of the best parts of Skyrush.

I think I'm most stoked to find out whether Skyrush or Intimidator305 rank higher. It seems like every other ballot has either one right before the other, with a few exceptions. I'm personally in the Skyrush-is-slightly-better camp, but they're so close for me that I'd be pleased to see either as #1.

 

As for the previous commentary about Millennium Force, here's my opinion. Millennium Force is an absolutely phenomenal ride that can, as Robb said, cater to anyone. I remember a 95' coaster looking like 1,000 feet tall when I was 4 feet tall. It's fast, smooth, has a great drop, and is far from "Millennium Forceless". Most of the back seat rides I've had on it have resulted in seeing some serious grey spots, including one insane ride in the rain with 93mph raindrops. I also can really appreciate the fact that, as the first, Millennium Force really defines the giga coaster and sets it apart from the megas. Since the Heide-Park airtime monster never got built, gigas seem to be defined as height and on-the-ground speed machines as opposed to airtime machines.

 

Intimidator305 seems like a build on what Millennium Force already started, and while I'd rank it higher personally due to the higher thrill factor, if I had to spend 24 hours on one coaster, I'd probably pick Millennium Force. If I had to spend 24 hours straight (or even an hour, for that matter), on Skyrush or i305, I'd probably be dead.

Mitch has added 5 coasters to the poll since it was first posted. Four of them were added today. If you've already voted, you might want to e-mail Mitch with the updated lines for any of these coasters you've ridden. Apparently, Goliath (the moved and renamed Deja Vu from SFMM) got forgotten.

 

For those of us who went on the TPR China trip, three of the popular coasters there were left out, but have since been added. Well, Dragon in Clouds wasn't exactly popular, but all three of the other Vekoma SLC's with cobra rolls were listed, so that one should be, too, unless they decide to group them in the future.

 

If you're using the drag and drop ballot generator by Jordan Hatch, all of the newly added coasters are at the BOTTOM of the ballot. If you're using the text version, they two US coasters are where they belong in the list and the three Chinese ones are at the end of the China listings.

 

Texas Giant - Six Flags Over Tex, TX

Goliath - SF New England, MA

Mountain Peak - Jin Jiang, CN

Stingray - Giant Wheel Park, CN

Dragon in Clouds - Happy Valley Chen, CN

 

And a side note to those of us on the China tour: PLEASE VOTE. The Chinese coasters only got 11 votes on the wood poll, at least one of which was from an actual designer of wood coasters there. If the steel poll gets fewer ballots from us, then the China coasters won't rank, because they need a minimum of 10 votes to count. Several of the coasters (the mega-lites, flyers and 4D) on the trip will likely rank highly. It would be a shame if their rankings don't count due to not enough of us voting!

I spent a good hour filling out the ballot tonight. Just so many coasters to rank since I do them all individually. I'll submit it tomorrow after I get time to go over it once again in case I made a mistake anywhere.

HUH?!?!?

 

I'm sorry, while I know people are supposed to be "entitled to their own opinions" or whatever, but that's just wrong.

This was at the bottom of my list too! That ride is truly terrible!

 

It was probably by far the most uncomfortable thing I ever went on!!! Ouch.

I believe that if Maverick had I305's restraints, it would rank higher. And I also have to agree about Millie. She is smooth and has a great first drop, but that's about it. I have yet to ride Biazzro, GeForce, or a Mega lite, but from my understanding, they look wonderful.

 

If SkyRush had I305's restraints I have a feeling it would have been my #1. Haven't ridden Maverick yet.

I think this wouldn't quite be the case simply because the restraints on Skyrush provide so much freedom of movement that you fell like you'll actually fly out but on I305 I felt even on the strongest airtime moments that I was still safe and comfortable due to how cumbersome and restrictive the restraints are, this would sort of kill what I consider to be one of the best parts of Skyrush.

 

I think this is one of the reasons I actually rank I305 "slightly" higher than SkyRush. I felt like SkyRush was actively trying to throw me from the ride, this was the first time I'd ever felt this on a coaster. While it was awesome I actually felt like I HAD to hold on and now throw my hands up and simply enjoy the ride.

 

Hope that makes sense.

 

If I was giving the rides a number score I'd give I305 a 10 and Skyrush probably a 9.8. It's that close for me.

I see what you mean. Its just the fact that, the purpose of Skyrush is so you feel like your getting thrown out. Its all good though, I-305 is very very good itself. If only those final airtime hills didnt have that trim! Then it would be epic!

The feeling that it's trying to throw me out of the train was my favorite part of Skyrush. As enthusiasts, I think we often feel so in control over our ride experience on most coasters, that when Skyrush comes along and says, "Um, no... I'm in control, not you!" it feels like an entirely new level of roller coaster. For me, if a ride can make people like us feel like the GP, even for a few seconds, then it's doing its job.

SkyRush is my 2nd favorite coaster because I think it might be the most intense coaster ever built, airtime wise. The only reason I rank i305 #1 is because I think it's overall a better coaster, because it has EVERYTHING you could possibly want from a coaster in one package.

Breasts?

 

Even those! A bit lopsided though.
