Definitely a close toss up between El Toro and Phoenix for me. I think Phoenix pulls out on top because I remember getting off thinking "I almost could of fallen out of the train" because of the amount space between my legs and the lap bar! Those last 4 hills=best airtime ever!

The first drop, first airtime hill, and mini hill on Maverick were phenomenal! Raptor in the back seat on the first drop had great airtime too!


I sat in the second row on Raptor. That turn after the pre drop was as forcefull as those wingovers. I did get the sensation of airtime, looks like the next time I ride raptor (May ) I'm riding in the back first.



For Me:


Skyrocket's Top Hat @ Kennywood, front seat.

-That ejector air was amazing


Corkscrew @ CP.

Yes I know, but that airtime was very unexpected and was quite pleasant and painless. I don't quite remember where I sat, but it was the only time I've ever felt/enjoyed the good airtime corkscrew surprisingly offers. It's one of those hidden gems that I have to rediscover next season.

Skyrush did have absolutely insane airtime, but I still prefer Phoenix at Knoebel's much more, simply because of the multiple bunny hops in a row, the loose restraints, and the fact that that ride makes me laugh like an idiot the whole time for some reason.

I haven't been on a ton of Airtime machines sadly. My Top 5 are below.


1. Voyage - Rode it when it was new in 2006 and if had some great airtime.

2. Magnum - Got a trimless ride and the airtime was just INSANE

3. Maverick - Those couple of Airtime hills are great

4. Apollo's Chariot - Speaks for itself

5. Superman: Ultimate Flight (SFDK) - Purely for the fact that none of us expected that it would have the airtime it has.


Honorable Mention: GhostRider - This is referring to back in the day when it wasn't trimmed to S#!t in the middle.

Phoenix has some insane airtime, and is probably my number one. Next would probably be El Toro, with honorable mention to Superman: Ultimate Flight. S:UF doesn't have 'normal' airtime, but that ride seriously tries to throw you out of the train!

This may have already been done before, but if it hasn't, I'm looking forward to seeing your opinion on this.


What's the greatest single airtime hill on a coaster you've ever ridden?

Could be a floater hill, a speed hill, a first drop, a double down, anything: Just as long as it's a hill and it has airtime.


In case you still don't know what I mean, the floater hill just before the grand turnaround on Magnum XL-200 is my favorite. Three solid seconds of glorious flight.
