^ I hope to ride it sometime

Xcelerator, Storm Runner, and Dragster also all give a nice pop of airtime at their crest.

 

In my opinion, El Toro takes the cake for airtime strength. Phoenix wins for overall airtime quality and enjoyability. Magnum and Skyrush COULD be the best/most enjoyable for steel airtime if only they would do something with the restraints. But then again, just my opinion

And finally, I completely agree with that Skull Mountain thing. I don't even know how it's even remotely possible that such a small coaster can give that much airtime at the drop, but somehow it does (it is an Intamin after all, I guess everything they touch has some sort of ejector, haha ). In the back as someone said, you're half way up the lift and then not even a second after, you're somehow at top speed and get launched over the top. I was in complete disbelief that I was getting forces that strong on an indoor coaster, but after riding it twice I could only conclude that it did. That moment alone makes it unskippable if you're at Gadv

 

The first time I ever rode Skull Mountain I was with a larger friend, and I'm very small myself. I had a solid 4 to 6 inches of clearance between me and the lap bar.

 

That was incredible, got back into the station and my buddy turns to me and goes "I thought for sure you got thrown out on the first drop"

 

The Skull Mountain army is growing, lol. This ride is the worlds first "Cult Classic" coaster.

El Toro definitely has the strongest and craziest airtime, especially the RT hill, it's insane. Bizarro/STR is great as well, the hill before the spaghetti bowl is amazing. Boulder a Dash has tons of air but nothing crazy ejector. I love the two hills after the turnaround and all of the double ups and triple up.

Skyrush gives the best ejector air time of any ride. It feels like after that first floater hill the ride is trying to throw you of your seat the entire time, lol.

Yes especially the rear outer seats, I kept re-checking my restraint during the ride. It's that wild!

Same! Sky rush was one of the few rides I actually thought I was gonna fly out on. I loved the airtime but I absolutely despised the restraints. The fact that they release for a second on the brake run is hilarious and super helpful.

lol the Skull Mountain back seat cult is becoming a thing . Seriously, anyone who doubts it, go try it out in the back seat for yourself. You'll be a member of the cult of Skull Mountain

 

Fixed

^ No one should have to make you ride it. Just go to the park and The Mountain will call out to you.

 

You guys are killing me with this. I have no idea how a thread called "Which Coaster Gives The Best AIRTIME???" became the Skull Mountain appreciation thread when the same damn park has a ride that delivers such ridiculous airtime that it does this during what appears to be morning ERT on an empty train...

 

 

But I'm not going to complain, I'm beyond entertained right now. lol

A bunch of threads on here have become Skull Mountain appreciation threads. You know why? Because he's the true underdog of the community. But he holds the power. And with that power - day by day, he converts yet another hapless enthusiast into a disciple of his almighty persuasive and unexpected force.

 

Seriously this is hilarious and I love that it keeps coming up. Can we please have a TPR meetup and take over a train already?? (even tho we'd all fight for the back row)

 

Related: coasterbill texted me this from the park the other day. true story.
