VOLCANO all the way!

may the FORCE be with you

No Doubt the blast coaster Volcano definitely gets my vote here! That ride is sweet, there's no launch like getting shot up the mountain seeing nothing but the clouds, and that launch is just sooo intense.

Volcano, it's just awsome. Intense launches and then it's like your flying.

All "favorite" topics should be placed in the Games/Polls Forum. I;m moving this thread there now.

Definately Volcano....how the hell could you forget putting it up on the list??? The ride is sooooo smooth, the corkscrews are incredible! It is a one of a kind coaster.....how many parks have their own mountain to play with and make it into a coaster??? The only other one I can think of is Dollywood, unless you count Disney's Splash Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as coasters.

No, I think you're referring to Linear Gale, which is the double non-twisting Impulse.

Screaming Condor is in Taiwan, and is a copy of the V2s and Superman Ultimate Escape. It doesn't have the holding brake on the non-twist spike though. <--- I actually got to ride this one :)

And my vote now goes to Xcelerator. It would have been Volcano The Blast Coaster before, but Xcelerator breaks the thresh-hold for Intamin AG catapult rides.

BimmerZ3
08-05-2002, 11:27 PM
Yes, definatly Xcelerator

Wicked Twister. That's the only Intamin lauch I've done

the only intamin launched coaster i've ridden is v2 at sfgam and the launch really wasnt that powerfull (at least compared to the chiller and RnR)

coasterguy1
08-17-2002, 11:43 PM
Xcelerator, no hands down. It is the best launch Ive been on, followed by Greezed Lightnin at Astroworld. I didnt think the other Intmain launches were very powerful, but this one was great.

I would have to say TTD with Volcano in a close 2nd.

This isn't too hard, TTD.

I would have to say TTD, with Xcelerator coming in second.

This is an old thread with lots of old posters. TTD definately wins (even though I haven't ridden it yet). For the ones I have ridden, WT.

Dead on. I have been on WT, therefore it is my favorite but TTD looks and seems 100 times better.

Top Thrill Dragster comes to mind . .

07-10-2003, 10:36 PM
Xcelerator for now. Hopefully it will be TTD by the end of next week, if the friggin thing is working.

rapTORrock?
07-10-2003, 10:42 PM
This isn't even an issue. TTD is by far the best one. The shuttle coasters are ok and volcano is good but it really doesn't compare to
TTD.

Graham
07-11-2003, 03:25 AM
TTD has the best launce in the world. Not only does it send you at 120 mph but it also has high G's too (makes for a good on ride photo :))

hhhmmm.........Volcano! :sun:

TTD!! That launch is simply amazing, especially in the front seat.

coasterguy1
07-16-2003, 11:32 PM
from what Ive been on-
1. Xcelerator
2. Volcano
but TTD is obviously gonna be the best on there.

SupraDude17
07-16-2003, 11:56 PM
I'm going to say Xcelerator. The launch on it is more instantaneous, more or less by the time you can blink it's at top speed. TTD isn't so much instantaneous as it is a constant acceleration, more like how a card would accelerate. It also seemed to me you got some better air time going over Xcels top hat and twisting 90degree drop then I did on TTD's 270degree. Also I actually liked the overbanks on Xcel, didn't seem boring at all to me, it doesn't leave me with any feeling of emptiness like TTD did. Plus I really loved the whole 50's theming thing, you can't help but not drool at those 57 Bel-Air trians.

07-17-2003, 12:13 AM
I would say TTD would be the best, although Xcelerator's is slightly the more intense of the two when it comes to acceleration G forces.

07-17-2003, 08:16 AM
you didnt really give alot of options. but i have only been on 1 and that was the TOWER OF TERROR

ride6
07-17-2003, 03:46 PM
I think TTD would be the best with Xcellerorator in second but from my (limited) expearience i have to say Volcano. The double launch is Soooo cool (esspecally the 2nd one! :D *drools at the memory* :D)

TTD was down when i was at CP in june.

I have ridden Screaming Condor before many times during a visit to Leofoo Village theme park; It was my first Impulse coaster. The ride doesn't have the rear-spike holding brake, but what's unique about this Impulse is that the rear half of the ride is subterranean so that the back spike appears to poke out of a hole in the ground while the front half of the ride is out on open land.

I regret having forgotten to bring a camera with me to the park :(

BimmerZ3
07-17-2003, 11:55 PM
Well, out of the ones I've ridden, I'm going to have to rank them like this:

1. Top Thrill Dragster
2. Wicked Twister
