View Full Version : Nicest Station

05-25-2001, 02:58 PM
i think Lightning Racer has the best station.

05-25-2001, 03:00 PM
Space Mountain! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-25-2001, 03:14 PM
The Villain

Definatey WILDFIRE its station is amazing!

Phoenix at Knoebels.
<BR>From the fans (Nice on a hot day!) to the very close proximity to the lift hill (handslapping is quite possible) I just love this station.

05-25-2001, 04:04 PM
My fav station is Dueling Dragons. I just love the theming.

05-25-2001, 04:17 PM
I say the line for Dueling Dragons is the best, but the station itself is bland in comparison to the last who knows how long in line. Station in and of itself, I'd have to say Incredible Hulk. Just the neon lab surroundings.

Rock 'N' Roller coaster's station is cool, because right after you get out of the recording booth thingy for the video, you see a launch, and it makes you even more excited to ride it! the garage theming of the station is cool too!

05-25-2001, 05:29 PM
i like the station splash mountain has, witht he chrecters embeded into the walls

05-25-2001, 05:31 PM
Dueling Dragons, Hulk and Oblivion are my favourite Stations.

05-25-2001, 05:39 PM
I agree, WILDFIRE IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

05-25-2001, 06:39 PM
Golaith has one very nice station and que area, it's really shady and tropical looking. It has lot's of flowers and plam trees, broken statue pieces of Golaith,and heavy misting for the summer heat. The station itself is very detailed, opened aired, and very colorfull. There is a nice enclosed bridge that you can stand on and watch the whole coaster from and the huge letters to the entrence is great. Golaith is truly a great ride and pure eyecandy to look at.
<BR>Also Riddlers Revenge is a great station and and que. The Station is like a night club with blasting techno music and flashing lights. The que is intertwined with the coaster so the whole time your in line the train is flying right by you. <BR><BR><font size=-1>[ This Message was edited by: X2001 on 2001-05-25 18:43 ]</font>

I would have to say that the "back alley" look of the Rock N' Rollercoaster station makes it the best around.

05-25-2001, 07:19 PM
I think Viper @ SFoG has the best station.

Apollo's Chariot
05-25-2001, 11:04 PM
Dueling Dragons, Flight of Fear,Mr Freezz and most Batman rides

05-25-2001, 11:13 PM
Batman. All that music and smoke and lights...its great

Blast Coaster
05-25-2001, 11:16 PM
Alpengeist and Flight of Fear.

05-25-2001, 11:48 PM
Magnum at Cedar Point and Double Loop at the park formerly known as Geauga Lake

05-26-2001, 12:06 AM
Dueling Dragons all the way. Alpengeist and Millennium Force are cool too.

Jonathan Gelert
05-26-2001, 12:34 AM
Space Mountain @ Disneyland. It's big, the queue is elevated over it, and it looks just like a space station.

05-26-2001, 08:55 AM

05-26-2001, 09:49 AM
Batman:The Escape and titan. I love the giant texas flag. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">

05-26-2001, 10:01 AM
Superman:ROS at SFA

05-26-2001, 10:04 AM
I like The Exterminator's at Kennywood. The themeing in really good.

05-26-2001, 12:08 PM
i like steel forces, effective roomy and well aired

05-27-2001, 02:03 AM
I'd say a toss-up between Space Mountain and Rock-n-Roller Coaster...

05-27-2001, 02:17 AM
For some reason i recall montu's station as being impressive...

05-27-2001, 10:35 AM
Mean Streak's station is very cool.

05-27-2001, 10:47 AM
2 Come to Mind they are
<BR>Duelling Dragons(excellent themeing all round here)
<BR>Oblivion(Has a very cool Looking station)
<BR>Space Mountain(Had to put this in, excellent station all round)

coaster man098
05-27-2001, 10:54 AM
dueling dragons, hulk, rockin roller, and nitro!

05-27-2001, 10:56 AM
I love MF with the cool music and all the freaky lights.

<BR>It isn't bad, but at the risk of overcriticizing my home park, I think the station at the Hulk is my favorite. Yes, the ride queue is far more impressive, though it's more of a dance club than an abandoned lab. The Hulk station, though, really looks like a modified particle accelerator would look in a comic book! Montu's stylized "archeological dig" look is nice, but a bit too subtle for me. I would do the station up as a hidden pharaoh's chamber, and outfit the ride ops as archeologists (though, honestly, the Egypt blue shirts are among the coolest in the park).

05-29-2001, 07:13 PM
Hershey's wild woodies (Wildcat + LR) both have awesome 1920's stations

05-29-2001, 07:29 PM
Also, The Chiller.

05-29-2001, 07:30 PM
Ummm.... PaulD, I think three came to mind. Anyway, the best stations are found at Disney, and my two favorite Disney stations are Rock N' Rollercoaster and Tower of Terror.

05-29-2001, 08:10 PM
I think Rock n' Roller Coaster has the best station. It has that dingy downtown alley feel and look.

Kid Koala
05-29-2001, 09:32 PM
I like the way the X-Flight station is looking at SFWoA

05-29-2001, 10:22 PM
ToT, Space Mountain, and Rock N' Roller Coaster

05-30-2001, 12:05 AM
Classic design: Wildcat at Hersheypark and The Cyclone at Lakeside in Denver
<BR>Futuristic: The Hulk
<BR>Medieval: Dueling Dragons (what else!!)

05-30-2001, 04:45 PM
Coasterguy, you like the Titan station? The Texas flag top and wooden poles for the line are nice, but there is hardly any covers for the line. There are NO misters, and 2 expensive drink stands. The line for Titan is very poor IMO, but it will get better as time goes on. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-30-2001, 04:54 PM
the best woody lighting racer
<BR>the best steel batman

The Beast
05-30-2001, 04:57 PM
I think Rock and Rollercoaster wins this one by a longshot

05-30-2001, 06:04 PM
FOF is pretty cool cause they have the dead people in those tubes!

07-14-2001, 07:22 PM
Alpengeist's is so funny. I love the missing skier bulletin, the trail rating, and stuff. It's hilarious.

07-14-2001, 07:37 PM
The Mamba

07-14-2001, 07:41 PM
If we're talking queues, Mean Streak has it hands down. I love being in the "belly" of the wooden mammoth. It is so impressive to look at.
<BR>Alpengeist is the best station...I like their humorous signs, and it does look like a ski lift station.
<BR>Exterminator used to be good, but when I was there this summer, some of the little punched out stickers were falling down and the tv video wasn't as good as I remembered. Is it new??

07-14-2001, 07:47 PM
I'm with Beltzies, Exterminator has a great one, so does the Incredible Hulk.
<BR>Dueling Dragons has a great one except it's WAY TOO LONG! It took longer to walk to were the people were actually waiting than you'd wait there!
<BR>If the proposed Phantom goes throigh for the Phantom's Revenge that gets mine, the platform is a giant phantom, looks very cool!

07-14-2001, 07:51 PM
I'd say Batman The Ride at SFGAm cause thats the only park I go to...... <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif">
<BR>but its lots of fun there

07-14-2001, 07:54 PM
millenium force

07-14-2001, 07:59 PM
<BR>the Millenium Force has the absolute WORST station!

07-14-2001, 08:06 PM
I agree. Why is that station so small?
<BR>The coolest has to be Mr. Freeze!
<BR>Nothing beats seeing the WHOLE TRACK move to the middle and blast off. And then the minute one train comes back, seeing the oppisite side do the same!

07-14-2001, 08:19 PM
Wildfire at SDC is heavily themed with clever little drawings and invetions. An A+ all the way.

07-14-2001, 10:35 PM
Flight of Fear, almost every coaser at BGW, and Lightning Racer.

07-14-2001, 10:44 PM
Its a tie between FOF, Apollo's Chariot, Loch Ness Monster, and Alpengeist.

07-15-2001, 12:36 AM
I really liked Rockin rolling rollercoaster and space mountain, both were really cool!

07-15-2001, 12:38 AM
Test Tracks station has good theming

07-15-2001, 12:48 AM
I like Flight of fear becuase It looks like your in a space ship and the cool noises add to the area.

07-15-2001, 12:56 AM
I would say the incredible hulk and dueling dragons cuz they both have awesome theming. And the hulk's kick butt sound system.<IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

07-15-2001, 05:32 PM
Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Skull Mountain

Andrew W
07-15-2001, 06:14 PM
Hmmm, I'd have to say Flight of Fear at PKD. In my opinion, the way they handel the lighting and sound is better than at PKI. I mean, right before launch you hear the alien say something like "So you thought you were in control the whole time, now who's got who?", then the lights in the station dim and the lights in the launch tunnel brighten and the music stops, than an early silence and zoom!! It's amazing!
<BR>Other than that, Id say other good stations are...
<BR>-Skull Mountain (SFMM)
<BR>-Millenium Force (CP)but only at night when you can really see the lazers and hear the music
<BR>-Hurler at PKD

07-15-2001, 06:46 PM
DD and Hulk

07-15-2001, 08:05 PM
Space Mountain's queue

07-15-2001, 08:33 PM
I Liked Ac and magnums stations

07-15-2001, 08:35 PM

<BR>Yeah, what's the story with it? Are they doing it this year? I saw it on KPUnlimited's website and it looks sweet. Nothing was done on it yet.

07-15-2001, 09:31 PM
X looks pretty awsome, but i would have to go wit any disney land loading platform. indiana jones is cool, same wit space moutian etc...

07-15-2001, 11:34 PM
I absolutely love the station at Superman Krypton coaster. anyone who has gone on it will most likely agree with me. What with the retracting boarding panels and all.

07-15-2001, 11:38 PM
probably any themed batman ride

07-15-2001, 11:54 PM
exterminator or the hulk. i like the techno in the hulk. it is so random.

08-07-2001, 11:57 AM

08-07-2001, 12:01 PM
Batman stations are cool. The smoke and dhe special effects makes it cool.

08-07-2001, 12:08 PM
I would Say Flight of Fear. The whole UFO thing is awesome.

08-07-2001, 12:12 PM
I have to go with Poltergeist, even though I hate the ride. I like the old, haunted house.

08-07-2001, 12:15 PM
I like montu and alpengiests stations

08-07-2001, 12:18 PM
Wildfire's station rules!

08-07-2001, 12:41 PM
the line 4 DD, B:TR, RnRc, hulk, MF, magnum and many many more

08-07-2001, 12:51 PM
my fav part of the batman station is when u hear Alfred talk and u c the bat signal........ its cool

08-07-2001, 12:53 PM
that inverted coaster with the aztech themeing looks the best but the best that i have ridden would be RnR, the backally is really cool

All threads that ask any of the following need to be posted in the "Polls" Forum.

-"What is the best..........?"
-"What is the worst..........?"
-"What's your favorite..........?"
-"What's your least favorite..........?"
-"Which is better..........or..........?"
-"Which is worse..........or.........."?
-Any other superlative

I'm moving this thread to "Polls" now.

08-07-2001, 01:23 PM
Superman: The Escape, Riddler's Rev. and Millenium Force

08-07-2001, 06:34 PM
I really like the station for V2 @ SFGam. The aqua and yellow metal structure is cool and you have the chance to see the train blaze by up close and personal. It's also not cramped like other coaster stations.

08-08-2001, 02:57 AM
Personally, I go for the Space Mountain, Riddlers Revenge, and Jaguar stations.

Honan Beetch
08-08-2001, 03:28 AM
Personally, I think Dueling Dragons has the best station ever! I mean going inside that eerie castle is already an experience. I loved how they put so much detail and intricate emphasis on the frozen or crisp burnt warriors that dared to challenge the might strength of the dragons. Oh yeah, and I like the, "Choose your fate: Fire or Ice....." sorta thing. The coasters are awesome, but the real reason why I love them so much is the extreme theming. Flight of Fear also has a pretty kewl station 'cause you go inside a UFO spacecraft and see the trains being launched in the tunnel. I mean the lasers, the lightning, the sounds, and the surroundings really give you the chills. It really seems like you're in a spaceship. Both Dueling Dragons and Flight of Fear have really awesome stations!

Ioa Master
08-08-2001, 09:55 AM
Me It's A Tie Between Dueling Dragons And Hulk

08-08-2001, 12:03 PM
Shockwave @ SFGAm! :p

08-08-2001, 05:33 PM
MF station, the lights and music are awsome! For a regular coaster station that is not really themed!

08-08-2001, 05:39 PM
The Hulk has the nicest station

08-08-2001, 08:40 PM
I've only been to one kewl station. It was the MF station, because it was all modern, right down to the music. The que line for the Joker's Revenge at SFFT was really weird, with the upside down car and blacklights. And isn't the Batman: The Ride que line supposed to be in a chemical warehouse? If it is, then how come when you get off it says "Welcome back to the Batcave?"

01-10-2002, 09:25 PM
Dueling Dragons has the best I have ever seen, by far. When I get to the station, I seriously want to stay in there and just look at all the themeing, jut as much as I want to ride DD. But then again Disaster Transport.....

01-10-2002, 11:53 PM
I like the Batman stations. They're very well-themed for a Six Flags ride.

01-11-2002, 12:10 AM
flight of fear,lochness; and alpengeist

01-11-2002, 08:24 AM
Dueling Dragons, Hulk, Dragon Mountain, Space Mountain. I also love the classic style stations such as Lightning Racer, but the highly themed steel coaster stations are hard to beat.

01-11-2002, 10:39 AM
Flight Of Fear is the best station.

09-15-2002, 10:24 AM
I think DD or alpengeist. Both of them have very good theming.

BTW according to Amusement Today Racer at kennywood has the best station.


Chris L
09-15-2002, 08:31 PM
I can't believe I'm seeing people put down Mean Streak, Millennium Force, The Villain or X-Flight for the "best station." Those are some of the worst I've seen...

Some really nice ones are Space Mountain and X (can't believe nobody mentioned this one).



09-15-2002, 08:47 PM
I've always liked the Batcave theming of B:TR.

09-15-2002, 09:05 PM
Alpie, FOF, and Goastrider.

Kyle L
09-17-2002, 12:04 AM
Riddler, I could live in it

09-17-2002, 04:07 PM
Space Mountain,Beast,and the Little Dipper at Kiddieland.

09-17-2002, 04:47 PM
The station of Poseidon and Matterhorn Blitz at Europa Park are pretty neat.

09-17-2002, 08:49 PM
Rock n Rollercoaster, Dueling Dragons, Hulk

09-18-2002, 09:14 PM
i dont know if i already replied to this but i'll do it again anyways.

i like the chiller and b:tr's stations but dueling dragons, hulk, rnr, and tot are all amazing

James R
09-18-2002, 10:01 PM
we should have the ugliest/most annoying station: Ultra Twister, "Moving Conveyor, Please Watch Your Step." x infinity. OR Mayan Mindbender, IT SMELLS SO BAD!!!
Anyways...i think the best station IMO is Greezed Lightnin' yay...hehe for SFAW.....:sick:

09-21-2002, 01:02 AM
X, DD, Space Mountain, Riddler's Revenge, and Flight of Fear.

07-07-2003, 03:58 PM
FOF and MF. MF's isn't maybe that great but I kindof like the futuristic architecture of it.

07-07-2003, 04:18 PM
Space Mountain, Hulk, and Dueling Dragons are all incredible.

Carowinds 73-03
07-10-2003, 12:44 PM
Until TTD came along i really liked MF's Station but themeing wise i would go with FOF.

Alex T
07-10-2003, 02:31 PM
This must be resurection(sp?) day of old polls lol. TTD has an awesome station, and so does MF I think. I also really like FOF with the test tubes and that stuff. Oh, and Goliath's is really cool too.

07-10-2003, 03:23 PM
TTD's station seems a little crowded to me, but I've never been through it, I got on the ride through the exit.:)

07-10-2003, 03:32 PM
Rock'n'Roller Coaster gets my vote. You go through the whole Aerosmith/record studio dealie and come out to watch the train get launched. Simply amazing.

07-10-2003, 04:20 PM
I liked Hulk's station and I love the 2 train operation of Mr. Freeze. It's so awesome to watch trains sliding back and forth in the station.

07-10-2003, 06:22 PM
Yeah, Mr. Freeze's thingamabobs that switch the trains are fun to watch (click chunk "What the-?" whrrrrrrrrr click chunkchunkchunk POP! SHOOOM! FWAM!AAAA-)

I like MF's station with the big neon arrow on the roof. That's really cool at night, as you zoom towards and byu the station you see the eerie red glow.

07-10-2003, 07:25 PM
Well i'd sat TTDs and MFs are the best I've seen. Although my memories of Vipers (SFGAmer) station are pretty good too. If i remember right the western-theme was in full swing there.

TTDs looks soooooo COOL at night and MFs with the traser lights and projected logo is spectacular at night (as is the ride :) ).

07-10-2003, 07:26 PM
^ Vipers station does have great theming, but I hope you like being crammed inside with a bunch of hot, sweaty, smelly people.

07-10-2003, 10:16 PM
Well that was a few years ago but i do remember it being crammed and not too open, lickly i was there in May and the weather wasn't "hot" by any measure (around 65 degrees.)
