Most Overrated coaster?

Sat May 19, 2007 1:37 pm

The coaster I think was most overrated was Millennium Force at Cedar Point. I know everybody loves this coaster and I do to, but all the hype about it, made me think it was going to be better then it actually was. I love Cedar Point and every coaster there I just didn't think Millennium Force was as good as it should have been.

Stand Still Dumpster, errr, Top Thrill Dragster gets my vote for most overated.

MF sucks. After that amazing first drop, the rest is mediocre, at best.

I'll second that. It's a pretty fun ride, but by no means the greatest in the world or whatever. Millennium Force has "Disney airtime". Actually, strike that. The airtime on MK Space Mountain that you get on the drop next to the lift hill is better than anything on Millennium Force.

The Beast. Most people, or atleast people around KI, are all "OMG longest wooden coaster, it's the best!" It used to be amazing, though.

Wicked Twister was cool the first time, bet then it just was boring.

Let's rename this thread to "Let's bash MF on how it's boring and has mediocre airtime at best, besides the first drop"

MF doesn't really seem overrated to me. It doesn't have a ton of airtime but thats not the point of the ride.

The Beast would also get my vote. It was cool, but I didn't see what all the fuss was about other than the nice woodsy location.

SROS at Six Flags New England. It was good.. It's my 2nd favorite coaster, but taht's not saying much with my small count of 77

KingDa Ka the first time sure it's good, but the next 7 aren't was exciting :\

Air Time doesn't make a coaster.

I have ridden 2 of the S:ROS's and while I enjoy them both and the when at SFNE is the best, it isn't a really fun ride just because of some air time

Millennium Force and Dragster are really fun as well

I really don't have a most overrated because I love all coasters

Perhaps if I ever get to parts of Europe other than Alton Towers I can comment

Which leads me to......Oblivion, if I had to choose 1 overrated ride that would be it.

Alpengeist was probably the biggest letdown I've had on a coaster. It was easily the worst B&M invert that I've been on. For such a huge ride I felt like it should have been so much better.
