Where did the two Giovanola hypercoasters end up? And which one ranked higher?

...asking for a friend. :lol:

Goliath - #128
Titan - #177

I'm honestly surprised they ranked that high. I mean, they ranked lower than almost all of the B&M hypers, but considering how much enthusiasts seem to hate them, I'm surprised they weren't down in the 200-300 range.

I'm shocked there's as large of a gap between them as there is too since they rode nearly identically to me.

Nah, that's just me. ;)

That is pretty interesting - I wonder if it's due to exposure or if there's actually a noticeable difference for some people? The extra helix probably makes a difference, but I haven't been to SFMM so I can't say.

I don’t hate them, they are fun rides.

I just forgot they existed.

^^I rode Titan for the first time last Friday.

While walking down the exit path, I actually remember thinking to myself... “Wasn’t there some dude on TPR who kept talking about how much this ride sucked and didn’t I give him crap for it? Yeah... I owe him an apology :lol: “.

Titan is amazing in that it manages to be both the most forceful and least forceful coaster ever made. The back few cars provide a slightly less sucky experience (the first drop actually feels like a drop instead of straight track).

Looking forward to your eventual Texas TR! It's always interesting to see what people from outside the area think of the parks here.

As a Michigander, who has been to a ton of parks, and on over 230 coasters, I'd still place Thunderhawk closer to 200 in my rankings, than 150. Aside from riding it defensively in the very front row, you're going to get banged around, or strain your neck from trying to hold your head still. The Vekoma Hang n Bangs, even at their best, are just not a very good coaster experience, I think most people would agree...

I wanted to see where coasters I had ridden ended up on the last poll. For some reason I got a server error when looking through the previous poll but only on page 9: https://coasterpoll.com/results/steel?page=9

Edit: page 12 and 14 too
