I love Arrow because they started off steel coasters with The Matterhorn at Disneyland but i'm Gonna have to say B&M because of their smooth ride and their briliant seating designs making like floorless and inverted.

Anyone gonna respond?

It's gotta be B&M!! I love B&M's in-line twists and large loops. B&M inverts are the best.

Good question, I like em all <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> But if you want to narrow it down, I'll say: Arrow, Schwarzkopf, B & M, and CCI.
<BR>Arrow: Because they have quite a variety of good coasters and built the fun Gemini.
<BR>Schwarzkopf: The Godfather of Steel Coasters (Stengal is the Guru or Dali Lama of Steel Coasters), he showed the joys of lap-bars only loopers as well as the joys of 7G loops and extremely twisted designs.
<BR>B & M: Their invterteds still are great, and I consider Apollo's Chariot to be one of the best coasters ever. Now if they'll only put those trains on their multi-loopers... <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">
<BR>CCI: Got hooked on these guys visiting Michigan's Adventure and riding Shivering Timbers and Zach's Zoomer. Great stuff.
<BR>As long as its fun, I'll ride it. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

Definitely Intamin and Schwarzkopf. I'm judging that by their coasters. Fantastic and under-rated for how abselutely INCREDIBLE rides! It must be the design of the track. They make the most intense and most PERFECTLY smooth rides EVER!<BR><BR><font size=-1>[ This Message was edited by: Blast Coaster on 2001-05-08 03:24 ]</font>

With so many good ones to choose from? Well, B&M must be number one. Gentle giants if there is such a thing. Next would be CCI. I haven't met a woodie yet I haven't loved. Lastly, Arrow Dynamics. They built my baby :'( and so many other great coasters around the world.

Intamin: S:ROS, S:UE, MF......Some pretty quality coasters. B&M finishes a close 2nd IMO.

Arrow Dynamics. If it wasn't for them we wouldn't have steel coasters, inversions, and I have seen a coaster of theirs that was converted to a standup which may or may not have been the first standup coaster.

My favs are CCI, Intamin, and B&M.
05-09-2001, 07:36 PM
Wow, I love them all. However, I think I will say Schwarzkopf. If they were still making coasters today I would bet they would easily out-do B&M.

Steel: B&M -- seamless combination and pacing of elements makes for rides which are unparalleled in the industry.
<BR>Wood: GCI -- smooth and twisted. Also brilliant element pacing. Their coasters are the most twisted wooden creations on the planet.

B&M all the way!!!!!!!!!
<BR>They make the best coasters!!!!
05-09-2001, 09:15 PM
B&M by far they are so good
05-09-2001, 09:27 PM
I like B&M, because the rides they make are so graceful. I also like CCI because the make awesome looking rides that are as sweet as they look!
05-09-2001, 10:29 PM
I would say Arrow, but their coasters wear within years of being built, making the rides rough. B&M coasters are the best.
05-09-2001, 10:44 PM
I wasn't even aware that this was a debate issue....B&M all the way!
<BR>Why, you ask? Near-perfect stand-ups, the inverted design that sent the coaster arms race nuclear, and the beatiful design of the large loops, Immelman, barrel rolls, cobra rolls, sea serpents, etc. Get the idea?
