Back when Dueling Dragons actually dueled, I think both coasters would of got my vote for best inverted coaster. They still are great rides but I decided to go with Montu only because of my most recent few rides on it were fantastic.

1) Alpengeist

2) Montu

3) Afterburn

4) Talon

5) Great Bear

6) Fire

7) Ice

8) All the B:TR's


-This is a historical list, Alpie isn't quite what she used to be, but who is? Back in the late 90's/2000, the 2nd half rocked like the first.

-Actually had some sub-par rides on Montu this past May, but again, the overall years of rides on her rate very high.

-Luved Afterburn, Talon, etc.

-If I rated Dueling Dragons/Dragon Challenge as a "one" ride experience, i'd have to move it to #1, again, at least when they indeed still dueled. But separately, thay aren't in the same class as the top group...and I don't think they really were meant to be viewed that way, even if they are two credits...imo.

I have to be 100% honest, I wasn't really impressed with Alpengeist. It was one of my most anticipated coasters from our recent trip and it just was blah. We rode it a couple of times during the day, a couple of times during ERT but I just didn't love it.

Why only American? Especially since Nemesis, Katun and Pyrenees regularly rank higher than any of the US inverteds on Mitch's steel poll. (Although I'd still put Montu above any of them.)


There are probably already threads that are dedicated to "the best" worldwide, if you do a search. This thread is just more exciting and popular....right now

I've only been on these ones:

Batman (SFGAd);


Great Bear;



I will choose Raptor as, despite being a tiny bit less forceful than Batman, it makes up in length (and it's always a bit more unique). This is how every B&M should be!
