Well, it has been 8 years since my last visit to SFGAm. So it's been a while. I imagine that when I go back, my answer will most likely change to Goliath. But I am still saddened to hear Viper not aging well since I really liked it in 2010.

I actually thought Vortex was alright. This was back in 2007 and I certainly liked it more than Hurler and Cyclone. I'll be heading back to Carowinds later this summer so all will be right with the world.
