Ka gets my vote, I was so ready for it to be awesome, but it did nothing at all!

I don't know why people bash S:ROS, it hardly gets any hype, people put MF and Expedition Geforce above. If anything, it is a gem in the rough. I find many people being surprised in how good it is.

Kumba, it was alright, but I thought Wildfire was alot better, I think partly because it is newer than Kumba, but still, Kumba seemed to be lacking.

Being #1 in both the Internet Coaster Poll and Golden Ticket Awards for 2006 is hardly any hype?

People said it was a great ride, but it hurt in some spots, and was somewhat rough. Don't get me wrong it's a great coaster, very classic, but it's a little rough. But damn that thing is the complete opposite of forceless!

^^It finally got the hype it deserved, but last few years MF seemed to be the one that overshadowed it. Yea it gets some hype, but not nearly as much as MF or Expedition GeForce IMO.

Hypersonic XLC, hands down.

Most pointless coaster I've been on, but the year it opened, people were like "Oh my god! This is TIGHT."

Hmmm....I really cant think of any right now.

Of my limited coaster count, the general population has been usually fair about different coasters, if not criticizing them more than complimenting. It's more common for me to get off a ride and say "now, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be" than the opposite.


As a matter of fact, I am the #1 reason I'll get off a ride somewhat dissapointed. It isn't uncommon for me to ride a ride and have it unexpectedly blow me away. I then hype it up so much in my own mind, that by the time I get back on it again, it isn't quite as great as I remember it!

colossus at tp, is a bit overrated, the best parts of the ride are, loop, airtime hill and cobra roll, thats about it, but the theming is awesome

I really don't think Millennium Force is overrated. It's atleast as good as S:ROS SFNE. And how can Wicked Twister be overrated? When did it ever get much hype?

I definatly think Top Thrill Dragster. It took me two hours to get on, and it lasted no more then 20 seconds. I was atleast expecting an extremly thrilling 20 seconds, but other then the fast and intense launch, the ride had nothing to it.

Beer for the here, hiccup!

Wow, worst B&M invert you've been on? I never expected to hear that one... What other B&M Inverts have you been on? Why didn't you like Alpengeist? It's my favorite Invert, and I've been on Raptor at CP.

As for my most overrated coaster... I'm going to have to go with Top Thrill Dragster.
