View Full Version : Wooden or Steel?

07-23-2001, 12:38 AM
I was wondering what you guys thought was the best type of dueling roller coaster. I think that wooden ones are pretty cool but steel is still good too. I rode my first wooden roller coaster this weekend and it happened to be a dueller. It was a very good ride. I think woodies are the best duellers.

wooden is def the best duel ride. it just has this feel to it.

This is tough...I'd have to go with steel, though, being that I liked Dueling Dragons better than Lightning Racer by a hair. Both wooden and steel ones are great! (or at least the ones I've been on.)

Dueling woodies is a clasical thing...steel duelers can be good but i say wood

wooden...not by much though

I know for a fact that more people here like steel over wood, though it is depressing to me simply because I love wood coasters.

Wooden coasters are too rough. I prefer the smooth steel ride myself.

Wooden coasters make a lot of noise which makes them look scary. I think theyre way too bumpy, I like steel better becuz they look cooler and they are most likely too be smooth. Steels could be: Stand-up, floorless, impulse, (flying), inverted, etc...

Steel. I like smooth coasters.

Steel all the way because of the many variations of coasters.

Steel, as far as dueling. I hate seeing ugly people staring @ you from the other train when you are riding side by side.

wooden roller coasters all the way: they are more exciting, steel seems too safe, not as much of a thrill.

I like both very much, but I feel wood is better.

I love them both. Wooden racers are classics but there are so many more things that you can do with steel...for example the two loops on dueling dragons

09-23-2001, 11:04 PM
even though i hope to see more steel racers, i think that it is just classic to see a double track woodie fighting for first. i want my american eagle to race again

woodie all the way

Some people seem to be ingnorant of the fact that this isn't just about your preference of a wood or steel coaster, but dueling wodden or steel coasters.

Anyways, I would definately go with wood...DD was a great ride, but nothing compares to a good dueling woody.

11-24-2001, 05:48 PM
