What is your favorite product from each manufacturer?


Recommended Posts

Had a conversation w/ a friend about this so thought this might be interesting to post here. Knowing my luck there is probably a thread about this (mods please merge if so?)

 

What is everyones favorite product/model from each manufacturer?

Obviously it should be something you have actually ridden.

 

For instance mine would be:

 

B&M - inverts

Intamin - hypers/blitz/prefabs

Premier - spaghetti bowl launcher

S&S - Screaming Swing

Larson - drop tower

Arrow - mine trains? lol

Vekoma - SLC (its either that or boomerang for me, at least SLCs are not boring)

HUSS - enterprise

Funtime - Star Flyer

Morgan - hypers

Chance - Pharaoh's Fury/swinging ships

Schwarzkopf - Bayern Kurve

The number of manufacturers I pull out of thin air will be a good indicator of how much I'm trying to kill time at work today. Okay here goes... I'm leaving out any manufacturer where I haven't ridden at least 2 types of products they offer which includes RMC.

 

Arrow: Log Flumes (honorable mention to suspended coasters)

Bisch-Rocco: Flyers

B&M: Inverts (My favorite 2 B&M coasters are Fury and Kumba but Inverts are the most consistently great)

Chance: Zipper!

Dinn: I don't count Wild One or the Beast, so I'm going with Mean Streak. Hi haters!

Eyerly: Roll O Plane

Frank Hrubetz & Company: Paratrooper (these guys made them, Round Ups, Tip Tops and a few others).

Funtime: Sky Screamer

Gerstlauer: Euro Fighters, especially of the mysterious and mine-y variety

Hopkins: Log Flume

Huss: Giant Frisbee

Intamin: Basically everything but I guess Giga's. Honorable mention to wood coasters and 1st gen freefalls.

Larson: Drop Towers

Mack: Log Flume

Mondial: Windseeker

Morgan: Hypers

Premier: Spaghetti Bowls

Schwarzkopf: Everything!

S&S: Drop Towers... Hypersonic was awful

Togo: lol... standups I guess even though I hate them

Vekoma: Giant Inverted Boomerang (when running Vekoma trains) Honorable mention to the Mad House (Houdini).

Zamperla: Frisbee

 

And last but certainty not least (they made Space Spiral so I can count them... get your drink ready everyone...)

This is pretty neat thread. I'll post these as they come into my mind, I don't have the patience to make it alphabetical lol.

 

B&M-Inverts (haven't ridden all that many but Raptor and Batman kick all kinda of behind)

Intamin--Prefab/Giga (looked though my list of fav Intamins and I have El Toro followed by both Gigas so not sure which to choose overall)

Vekoma--Flying Dutchman (they're not *that* bad)

Premier--Spaghetti bowl launchers

GCI--Idk... something smoother than Roar

Arrow--Log Flumes/hyper (haven't ridden Magnum on a good day so I need to give it credit as it was at least 'okay')

Larson--haven't ridden their drop tower so I guess flying scooters

 

I'll basically stop there because I'm not a huge flat ride person and I haven't travelled all too much.
