I don't think there is such a thing as a bad hyper. That's just my oppinion (because I like hypers).

The worst hyper was Steel Phantom.

Well I've loved all the one's I've been on, but I'm sure that the one that could take the cake would be Manhattan Express. I've heard that ride is painful. Either that or some Magnum bashing.

If you considered Manhatten Express a Hyper than that would be it. Next would come Steel Phantom and then they are all so fun there really isn't a worst one.

The parks investment for a hyper coaster is large enough that they choose the best designers and contracters

I've never ridden a bad one but the Magnum XL200 was dissapointing...so I guess that one.

No doubt, Magnum. I've been on several B&M and Intamin hypers and they are far superior to all others. Magnum just sucked, way too rough. I had no desire to get back on again.

Desperado--all of you people that think Magnum is rough need to ride this one!

desperado was cool, nice and long. worst hyper -- Son of Beast. Man that thing is rough from the back seat and little to no air time. I hate Dinns with tall seat backs.

First of all you have to understand that if Magnum wasn't built there wuld be no hyper coasters, and there would be no battle for coaster supremacy, I don't know why people knock on what has been voted the best coaster of the year last year, I dont see six flags having a number one coaster (although they do have some sweet rides) that was a first of its kind and has stood the test of time like magnum

Actually if Magnum wasn't built, another hyper would have been built somewhere else, maybe that one would have actually been good!

Hey I was wonderin what you all thought is the worst hypercoaster out there? Is there even a bad hypercoaster?? I don't know. I've only been on 2 so I was wonderin what everyone else whose ridden more than me thought. Hypercoasters are probably one of the most popular attractions at a park, but not all are great right? Well if you know of any bad ones, the let us know.

I've never ridden a bad hypercoaster before, but the hypercoaster I least enjoyed was Magnum XL-200. Although the coaster was (and is still) receiving a lot of publicity when I rode it, I thought it would be like what people said. After riding it, I noticed that the coaster didn't really surprise me. It was a great coaster ride, but I've ridden better hypers out there.

umm the magnum DOES suck, its maybe the first but its still crappy

Out of all the ones I've been on, the worst is Magnum. The bunny hops are painful, and the trains are too small.

I've never ridden a bad hypercoaster. They're all really good. Some are rough, but not painful enough to be bad.

Magnum blows (for a hyper)

Honan Beetch
07-28-2001, 12:27 AM
Wow! I'm pretty surprised at how many of you guys despise Magnum XL-200 just as much as I do. I was just being nice and not calling Magnum a crappy coaster or else I'll get shot. Heh, heh, I think it kind of sucks.

Bort
07-28-2001, 12:34 AM
Unlike everyone else here, I really like Magnum. It was my first hyper. I still like it. Is cool you all don't like it, but I'm just different and actually really like it. I still look forward to riding it every time I go to Cedar Point! :-

I've gotta say Magnum's the worst too

Screamweaver
07-28-2001, 12:49 AM
Bad hypercoaster? Is their a such thing? They are tall, fast and fun. And Magnum is alot of fun. Even my least favorite(Desperado)hyper isn't bad enough for me to call it the "worst". Sorry, hypers by nature(like B&M inverteds) are amazing!

I haven't ridden one yet (Magnum's my #3 coaster!), and I don't think that S:ROS at SFA or Apollo's Chariot will be bad :)

There is no bad hyper i can think and theres no such thing as a bad hyper.

Not all the time. Just look at New York, New York. They got TOGO to do Manhattan Express! Not exactly the best designer out there...

may the FORCE be with you
07-28-2001, 11:27 AM
Steel Phantom was the best, but i'm gonna say S:ROS is bad only because they can't come up with a good name, other than that though all hypers are perfect! (I don't consider ME a hyper). Steel Phantom was on top though.

The first hypercoaster was actually Moonshot Scramble in Japan it is 200 ft tall and it opened in 1983 more than 5 years before Magnum. It has a pretzel inversion(the only one in the world) that gives out 6.5 gs . Go to Coaster Force .com and click inversion breakdown. Go to pretzel and it is there. This coaster is currently not operating.

The only one I have ridden, Apollo's Chariot, was good.

But it was a shuttle so it doesn't count. A hyper has to be a continuous circuit

Magnum XL 200. I've only been on 2 though.(Well, 3 if u count MF as a hyper.)

I SOOO agree with you! That thing was awfully painful! Worse than Manhattan Express!

Steel Phantom had inversions, but a hyper is a NON-INVERTING coaster that the lift and/or one of the drops exceeds 200 feet.
So technically, steel phantom isn't a hypercoaster.
I don't really know what's my worst.
So SOB isnt a Hyper although it has been classified as a HYPERwoody, and who made the rule that a hyper can't have an inversion, when building MagnumXL200 I bet arrow didn't say "Now people, a HyperCoaster is a RollerCoaster over 200ft. and can't have an inversion." Im going with alot of people when i say Mag is the worst hyper, since that and Son of Beast, (except if you say MF is a Hyper), are the only Hypers I have been on.
