TOP 5 B&M INVERTED COASTERS


Recommended Posts

1. Afterburn

2. Patriot

3. Montu

4. Raptor

5. Great Bear

 

I bet some people are surprised to see Patriot and Great Bear on this list. I loved Patriot because the layout flows so well and its just perfectly smooth. Plus that zero-gravity roll is my favorite of any invert. Great Bear has the best drop of any B&M Invert and I love the way the zero-gravity roll flows into the corkscrew. Banshee is definitely an honorable mention. The Batman coasters are fun, but they're a little too intense for me. However, I have yet to ride Talon, Alpengeist, Flight Deck, Silver Bullet, or either of the Dragon Challenges (the only North American non-clone B&M inverts I haven't ridden.)

But, Talon, Oziris, Banshee, and Nemesis looks SOOOOO bad ass!!! Maybe once I graduate college & make enough money to actually travel to these other coasters I will lol. Damn...effing college & part time work.

1) Banshee

2) Dragon Challenge (Blue)

3) Dragon Challenge (Red)

4) Raptor

5) Batman: The Ride (SFGAm)

 

While Batman is definitely the most intense out of these five, I prefer the other inverts over it because of their layouts and their overall experience.

I'm really surprised to see so many people rank Ice Dragon over Fire Dragon... I felt a HUGE difference between the two, Fire being far superior. Fire's second immelman is my favorite inversion of all time! Just a beter flow of elements in my opinion. Also, Ice's first drop/turn kinda sucks, as does the ending section after the loop.

 

1. Fire Dragon

2. Montu

3. Alpengeist

4. Raptor

5. Afterburn

6. Ice Dragon

7. Flight Deck

8. My favorite Batman (I've ridden 7, they're all about the same)

9. Silver Bullet

10. Great Bear

I like Raptor through Great Bear all very much. I feel like there's a bit of a drop off after that.

1- Banshee

2- Montu (VERY close second to Banshee. It took me by surprise big time when I first rode it in the back.)

3- Raptor

4- Great Bear (I was actually pretty surprised by the forces on that helix right after the lift)

5- Batman (I actually don't really like this at all, but I've only ridden 5 in total. It was just too intense and snappy for my preference.)

Everything is a matter of opinion and I respect that but I can't believe 2 people on this page put Banshee in the same conversation as Montu, let alone ahead of it. Whatever you people are smoking, I want some. Montu makes Banshee look like a wacky worm.

Never smoked a substance a day in my life! Maybe that's why I can correctly assess Banshee's greatness, that you have apparently missed!

 

Honestly, when it comes to B&M Inverts, I feel like each person's preference has a lot to with what they want from their coaster experience, be it intensity, a unique layout, or simply something special that just sets it apart. For me, it's splitting hairs with my top 3... I really like Banshee, Montu, and Alpengeist all about the same! But if I have to rank them, that's where I have them... for now at least!

I just like the large, flowing elements on inverts. Banshee is also just so long and it feels like it goes forever. And finally, call me crazy, but I like the vests better than the original OTSR on Montu and others.

Let's be friends again. Banshee is half the ride the classic b@ms are (raptor, montu, alpie).

 

It's one slow inversion after another and two turns.

1. Nemesis

2. Dragons Ice (when they used to duel)

3. Batman (any park really, but SFGAm is always fun with water and trees)

4. Alpengiest

5. Afterburn

 

Then it all sort of clumps together from there. Wasn't a huge fan of Raptor though, one ride and done usually for me.
