View Full Version : What's the most INTENSE coaster?

06-17-2001, 07:43 PM
Without a doubt, it was Goliath for me, the helix pulls out so much positive G's that u actually feel like ur getting "wiped out". Whenever u exit the station for goliath, u will always hear ppl say , "man that helix was killer" or "man i fainted on that helix"

06-17-2001, 07:46 PM
the raptor's final helix, wow, you should see my ride photo...

Hypersonic XLC. No matter how many launch coasters you've been on, nothing could prepare you for this launch.

Vertical Veloctiy at SFGAm is very intense. 5 lauches and stopping at the top of the back spike is awesome. Batman at SFGAm is also really intense. It seems really fast this year, it made me dizzy when i got off.

06-17-2001, 08:22 PM
Hypersonic XLC

06-17-2001, 08:24 PM
Hypersonic SLC

06-17-2001, 08:29 PM
The Chiller at SFGrAdv (both sides are intense, but Robin side is slightly more)

06-17-2001, 08:40 PM
Mantis with the restraints on wrong. It is actually better when they are a bit off...

Hypersonic XLC or Drachen Fire

Without a doubt, its got to have been the Steel Phantom. That ride was so scary and so intense, the tore it down. Its ashame, nobody could see it for that true beauty. It wasn't built to make you smile.

06-17-2001, 10:05 PM
viper at sfmm that ride does not let up because it is not the longest but it has soo many elements

06-18-2001, 08:24 AM
Stealth. All the g's that pull down on your head make it pretty intense. The drops and the near misses on the boxes also make it intense.

06-18-2001, 12:05 PM
The Riverside (now SFNE) Cyclone in the back seat. Its just plain painful.

Coaster Boy
06-18-2001, 12:14 PM
BEAST at PKI. In the back seat through those helices is very painful. I actually had tears running down the side of my face. But the ride is great, painful, but great.

06-18-2001, 12:17 PM
Definitely gotta agree with that one. The Beast at PKI is utterly, completely relentless all the way through. I love the lateral g's and how it tosses you from side to side. Overall a wonderfully wicked ride.

06-18-2001, 12:39 PM
The beast is very but for me, Hypersonic.

06-18-2001, 12:44 PM
I would have to say that Batman the Ride at SFGam would have to be the most intense coaster I've been on. That ride was killer.
<BR>Iron Wolf was pretty intense too.

06-18-2001, 12:56 PM
Texas Tornado @ SFAW. The first 2 loops pull over 5 g's. they are perfect circles. I love this ride. If you are ever in Houston, and you go to AW, and it is actually working, dont miss this ride!

may the FORCE be with you

<BR>Schwarzkopf is the genius, he made B&M. If somebody told me he was the one who actually designed coasters for them, and Walter and Claude are puppets, i'd definitely believe them.

06-18-2001, 06:05 PM
I still have to say Gwazi. Granted, it's the only wooden roller coaster I've ever been on, IIRC... but it packs a wallop. I don't feel the 3.85G Montu supposedly generates, but I feel every erg of the 4.1G of Gwazi.

Kid Koala
06-18-2001, 07:21 PM
BKF was pretty intense in the back seat. It was great.

06-18-2001, 07:40 PM
I still think that the helixes on The Beast after the second lift hill are the most intense part of any coaster, ever. The way it banks and gains tons of speed before that first tunnel, then when you enter the tunnel you get slammed against the side in complete darkness while you hear the car screaching, you swear it could fly off the track at any moment. Anyone agree?

06-18-2001, 07:56 PM
I think the chiller at great adventure is really intense. In the way of wooden hercules a dorney aint no kiddie ride

06-21-2001, 03:04 PM
The Chiller!

06-21-2001, 04:54 PM
chiller at great adventure

06-21-2001, 04:58 PM
Coney Island Cyclone! In the back you spend every hill being slammed into the lap bar. In the front every corner slams you into the side. Fixed single postion lap bar, room for air, no seat dividers, more side slide when alone!

06-21-2001, 05:11 PM
Rocken Roller Coaster because it has lots of g's on its many turns and you can barley see in frount of you and you don't know where thae track will go next

X Marks The Spot
06-21-2001, 06:26 PM
Georgia Cyclone!! WOO just imagine if they took all 5 trim brakes off!!

06-27-2001, 10:27 AM
Batman: The Ride

06-27-2001, 10:32 AM
It's gotta be Son of Beast. It's the most intense, violent ride I've ever been on. I was hanging on for dear life on that one. *LOL*

For me it's definately Legend at HW. The coaster is relentless, and throws you around like a rag doll. There is no way to resist the laterals (trust me, I tried LOL), and the airtime is mind blowing. This coaster left me with bruises down my left side for days.

06-27-2001, 01:07 PM
The most intense ride ive ever been on is either, Millenium Force, or Raptor, The end of Raptor is such a good one with all the G's smae with MF, the end is a good one.

06-27-2001, 01:11 PM
D/dragons fire that pulls awsome g's also rock n rollercoaster for the launch.
<BR>In the UK OBLIVIAN the drop! does not get more intense than that.

06-27-2001, 01:40 PM
For steel, I would have to say Batman:TR because no other coaster can make me feel the dizzyness that I experience after I get off Batman.
<BR>For wood, I have to go with Ghostrider. Very few coasters can say that a drop other than its first is the most intense, but 'The Drop' on Ghostrider really caught me by surprise the first time I rode this monster.

06-27-2001, 01:47 PM

I think alpengeist. My brother's hair was sticking up at the end of the ride and I was shivering etc., etc.

06-27-2001, 02:37 PM
And also Appolo's Chariot was intense. 2nd on the list

06-27-2001, 02:56 PM
Intense in a good way: X-Flight. Wow, what a ride, and very unnerving when you are swooping low, with the feeling like you could just SLIP OUT.
<BR>Intense in a bad way: Son/Beast, Shockwave (SFGAm), Viper (SFMM). Each of those rattled me around so much, it left me feeling like the losing end of 12 rounds vs. a Blender.

06-27-2001, 03:03 PM
Heres some:
<BR>Sooperdooperlooper- while this ride isnt intense, when ur almost done the first loop, SO MUCH pressure hits u head on and u dont expect it
<BR>Nitro- this is not a fake story, this is real. On nitro in the summer, it was really hot, and i was sitting next to my friend, and at the end of the first drop, all the g's made him black out for like 2 seconds. scary huh? and im not lying...
<BR>Wildcat- this boy, after the first drop, going over that turn to the second, man, i felt like i was slipping out

06-27-2001, 03:26 PM
I have just two words for you, Millenium Force!

06-27-2001, 03:29 PM
Also, some ride at Kings Island got my head stuck behind the should restraints and when I got off I almost fell over since my head got banged so much, so that was intense too. I think it was called the Cobra or something.

06-27-2001, 03:33 PM
cobra sucks, but kings dominion should get some real rides. grizzly saves them

06-28-2001, 12:13 AM
Most intense for me was the back seat of the Riverside Cyclone (aka SFNE)..one turn in the middle there is so wicked it snaps your neck and kills your crotch at the same time. It was wild, fun, and I won't ride it again for a while!
<BR>Bonus points to the Coney Island Cyclone, since my then-new girlfriend had her bra snapped by the jolts about halfway through. The best "move" ever!

07-24-2001, 12:02 PM
The Beast's final double helix. The speed, and tunnels are perfection!

07-24-2001, 01:05 PM
batman the chiller. its just so fast and compressed so it feels alot faster than a hyper

Thrill Rider
07-24-2001, 01:08 PM
Flight of Fear, no question about it. It's even more intense than it was when it had the otsr.

Honan Beetch
07-24-2001, 01:14 PM
The most intense coasters I've ever ridden would probably be Titan and Montu. Titan is really intense because of its helixes. I remember when I first rode it, I thought it would be just like Goliath, but it offered more intensity! That tight upward helix before the mid-course brakes nearly blacked me out! It was great! Montu is intense because of its rapid transition when going through every one of its 7 inversions. I also love the coaster dives in deep trenches. Both coaster may be intense, but they are incredibly smooth. I love them!

07-24-2001, 01:18 PM

Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags New England

07-24-2001, 07:00 PM
Well honestly I'd say that MF was very intense. I came off feeling very strange...

But here's my list:

1. Chiller (1st time...what a rush)
2. Magnum
3. CI Cyclone (Very surprising, especially in the rain :) )

I'm expecting hypersonic, Volcano, and Batwing to get in there too this summer. :)

07-24-2001, 10:26 PM
SOB helixes
Hypersonic XLC
Left side of Beast in helixes

07-24-2001, 11:38 PM
I think Chiller is the most intense....... the launch is the best.......... what a rush

Andy Hodgson
07-27-2001, 05:16 PM
definitely Goliath

07-27-2001, 06:11 PM
I'd say hypersonic XLC for Launch, The Legend for wood, and for a normal steel it would be a toss up between Steel Phantom and Batwing.

07-27-2001, 08:13 PM
golaith, i started getting tunnel vision. scary. very scary.

07-27-2001, 08:56 PM
Not to be a home park fan, but I honestly Think Shivering Timbers is the most intense. You get good air especilly in the front or back over most of the hill. ( There is a LOT of hills ) for lateral G's, there is one turn and a 630 degree helix. ( That's 1 3/4 of a turn )
This coaster has tons of head choppers. :D

To me MF is a extremly fun, but lacks a disorienting out-of-control feeling. Raptor, like any inverted coaster, gives you a volnerable feeling. :cool:

07-27-2001, 09:43 PM
Well, Intense as in G-Forces, I would say Face/Off...The seats were uncomfortable, and the Gs were really strong. I have been on a 5.5 G coaster, and it wasn't as intense!

07-27-2001, 10:29 PM
First of all your not quite sure what havin a wooden to steel loop would be like, and with no over the shoulder restraints it literlayy feels like your gonna fall out!!!!!

07-27-2001, 10:30 PM
that ride has 5 gs on it so its not like the other ride beat it by much. but yes the seats are uncomfortable.

07-27-2001, 10:39 PM
Alpengiest, or Montu but for some reason i think B-TR is pretty intense because it packs so many elment into a small space and i always c alot of puke at the brakes(eeeewwwww)lol

07-30-2001, 02:18 PM
I think it's any flying dutchmen coaster

07-30-2001, 02:29 PM
YES!!!!!!! i got a mine train poster now!!!!!!!

07-30-2001, 02:51 PM
I've heard that deja vu is really intense. Also X flight is supposed to be greatly intensen but fun at the same time.

07-30-2001, 03:00 PM
Son Of beast in the back car. Man, gotta love those positive G's.

07-30-2001, 03:40 PM
Goliath is very intense. I hear many people black out on the helix. Also Best beats you up.

07-30-2001, 04:21 PM
The Mindbender at West Edmonton Mall in Canada, any other 6.5 g rides out there???

07-30-2001, 08:19 PM
Even though it is 1.8 seconds, the launch for hypersonic is the most intense situation ive ever been in.

Craig Morris
07-30-2001, 09:51 PM
STEEL PHANTOM without a doubt. One of the few coasters that copuld staple your earrings right to your head!

Son of Beast. Especially @ night. That tilted helix before the loop was wild!

07-31-2001, 11:52 AM
definetly hypersonic xlc, because of the launch, you're like:
oh my god it's going to AAAAAAHHHH!

or any S&S Space Shot or Turbo Shot.
Because it's unexpected."this thing is never going to AAAHHH!!!"
and the positive(or negative, depending on the ride) G's take over and you feel so high

08-01-2001, 01:51 AM
That is how I felt the first time I rode V2

08-02-2001, 10:15 AM
Nitro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! only @six flags great adventure
its so original!!!!!!!!!!!!!

08-02-2001, 11:13 PM
I'm sure my vote may change of I rode Hypersonic. I cn only imagine that launch!

I agree! The best experience I ever had on a rollercoaster was on the Beast right before the park closed. That crowd was incredible with all the yelling and clapping in the station. I just love riding the Beast in the dark!!!

Without question:

Hypersonic XLC - this baby is a screamer!

09-19-2001, 08:51 PM
Flight of Fear takes the cake, but I have never been on Hypersonic since I've never been to PKD. Raptor comes in second. I agree with Chain Dawg and Raptor though, the double helix on the Beast is the most intense moment on any roller coaster I have ever been on, especially at dark. It is the only time I have ever heard a crowd cheering so loud from a coaster with the exception of MF in 2000.

09-19-2001, 08:58 PM
flight of fear and then v2

09-21-2001, 04:57 PM
V2 was really intense the first few times that I rode it. The first launch was just like WHOA!!!. But after you ride it about 10 times you kinda get used to it and know when its coming

09-24-2001, 08:23 PM
millineum force

09-24-2001, 10:30 PM
none of the coaster that I been on was intense and i was
the 3 other ones and USF and IOA

09-24-2001, 11:15 PM
Hypersonic What a launch.........wow

09-25-2001, 12:17 AM
For me, it's a tie between Millenium Force, Hypersonic XLC, and Goliath. All are tops in the intensity departments.

09-25-2001, 03:28 PM
For me, it's between MF and SOB...no explanation necessary :D


09-29-2001, 05:01 PM
no coasters were very intense for me.

09-29-2001, 08:48 PM
Batman The Ride and Hulk are both very intense.

01-04-2002, 10:30 PM
Hulk is the most intense I feel I have been on but im sure if i rode Hypersonic XLC, my opinion would change.

01-04-2002, 10:32 PM
Hypersonic XLC

01-05-2002, 12:06 AM
even though i haven't ridden it, i would have to say Doponda. 0-107 in just like 1 second is crazy to me

Measuring in pure intensity, Son of Beast takes the crown.

01-05-2002, 02:36 AM
for me its Titan, my 1st ride on it i blacked out for a couple of seconds on the 2nd helix,, since then SFoT has modifed the midcoarse breaks so the 2nd helix isnt as intense as it used to be,,
