View Full Version : The Nevada Rides- which one is your favorite?

07-01-2001, 09:16 PM
Hey, Nevada has coasters too! What's your favortie? We're changing it to Speed. I love the speed lurching out of the station and looking at everyone's hair when they get off.
<BR>Only 255 characters. No!!! Well, let's use that room carefully. What was I going to say? Oh yeah! I've only been to a few parks
<BR>to a few parks on the west coast. I enjoyed the G-force of falls of top gun, the airtime on Giant
<BR>Dipper was grea

I loved Canyon Blaster in the Adventure Dome many years ago...but I have only ridden that and the now defunct Lightning Bolt in NV. I would love to ride Desperado!

desparado is simply mind blowing, it is o tall, especially out in the middle of nowhere, it maintains high speed throughout the entire ride, it is the only coaster that still scares me and it is amazingly long.... of course manhatten express is cool too.. the only nevad coaster i dont like is high roller

Desperado is the worst excuse for a ride ever! It was the most disappointing thing I had ever ridden...rough transitions, sharp edged 'slam into your lapbar' camel backs, gives bumpy rides...<!-- BBCode Start --><B>Speed:The Ride</B><!-- BBCode End --> and the "new" (the new trains and smoother rides that is) <!-- BBCode Start --><B>Canyon Blaster</B><!-- BBCode End --> were the better 2. Manhattan Express is decent, but the ride is very rickety and has a few uncomfortable sharp turns. The High Roller concept is real unique, on top of a 921 FT free standing strucuture, but it isn't too thrilling.

The Chicken Ranch.

Speed is the best ride there. Manhattan Express sucked. It was way to rough. Canyon Blaster was also very excellent.

Speed: The Ride

I rode Manhatten Express back when it first opened and I only had to pay $5 a ride. I thought it was a great ride. The best on the strip. I haven't ridden it again since I've been down there because I think it is like $10 a ride now. I thought Speed was a quick rush but I like Manhatten Express better. In a month I'm going back down and I'm going to hit Canyon Blaster and Desperado hopefully and then I'll let you know what I think.

I also like manhatten express as my #1 nevada coaster, but tied for second is speed and desperado.

Speed. I would like to go out to stateline and ride Desperado since I live in Vegas. I am tired of hearing everyone in Vegas thinking that Mannhattan Express is the best coaster on Earth Speed is much better.

Speed is definitely the best ride in Nevada 'cause it's unique! I love how it climaxes with a 225 foot tall tower and then shoots you back down going back to the station. It's awesome!

This is the best ride in Nevada, so my vote goes to the Big Shot. That ride is simply awsome. Second is the Desperado, followed closely by Speed, Manhatten Express, and **. I don't see why prople keep bashing hypers that are a little bit rough. I don't mind it at all, as long as the drops are good.

Speed: The Ride all the way, just because I am a Nascar freak!

I like Speed the ride. I got on the front seat w/o waiting. The ride proved to be the definition of the word Speed. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Manhattan express is so rough and boring. Mine would have to be Speed:The Ride and Desperado.

Definitely Adventure Dome's Canyon Blaster. Very smooth, great intensity for a minute and 45 seconds, well themed, ideal indoor climate 365 days per year, very resonably priced - shall I go on?

Big Shot and Speed: The Ride

Tom, these youngsters are clueless about Chicken Ranch, and too young to have it explained to them.

yep its really unique allright! :rolleyes: i guess thats why they have Mr. Freeze at Six Flags St. Louis and SFOT becuase Speed is so unique. its a shuttle loop and its almost just like Mr. Freeze!

p.s. this is a joke i dont mean any offense to anyone!
