05-04-2001, 06:44 PM
i dislike great bear, mantis, top gun at PGA, all the batman the rides, the vortexs, and quite a few others, really. Sure, their my fave company but not every single one i like. I do enjoy hulk, alpengeist, and kraken.

slayer666
05-04-2001, 06:46 PM
nitro is phenomenal its the best thing that ever happened to SFNJ but how can you dislike MANTIS!??

Launched_2_40
05-04-2001, 06:49 PM
Mine is definately the Incredible Hulk Coaster. But I believe that all B&M's are terrific.

05-04-2001, 06:49 PM

Hey,
<BR> I love Alpy hence the name, Appolos Chariot is good. I like the Hulk too. Dueling Dragons are ok. Montu and Kumba are great too.
<BR> I dont particularly like Shockwave, Iron Wolf (or whatever) Riddlers Revenge

NITRO IS MY FAVE AND I HOPE THE SW5 RUMORS ARE TRUE ABOUT THE FLYING DUTCHMAN I HOPE ONE COMES TO THE STATES THOUGH

SIMStationMaster
05-04-2001, 07:54 PM
I would have to say Raging Bull, Batman the ride, and Montu.

Professor KoasterFreak

Medusa Man
05-05-2001, 04:08 PM
My Fav has to definitley be Medusa at SFMW, does my username mean anything? lololololol!
<BR>I also agree with all the peeps that say that all B&M creations are the bomb!:):)

SixFlagsGreatAdv
05-05-2001, 04:19 PM
NITRO, NITRO, NITRO. Alot of people are saying Nitro is like Ap at BGW I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY ARE THINKING. I think there very mad that a Six Flags park now has the B&M Mother Coaster

Jonathan Gelert
05-05-2001, 04:20 PM
I'm severely deprived, having only ridden 2 B&M's, Batman: The Ride and Riddler's Revenge (you can guess where I'm from). Every single one of them looks great, though.

Medusa1861
05-05-2001, 04:51 PM

Apollos Chariot, Montu, Kumba, or Georgia Scorcher

Apollo's Chariot
05-05-2001, 05:31 PM

Riddlers is the best. It's my favorite, theres nothing like it. Mantis is good but dosnt match up to Riddlers. I do gotta admit, Nitro kicked ass!!!! but i still gotta go with M Force, Goliath, and Titan as my 3 other favorits eventhough their not B&M creations.

Ridddlers Revenge is my Favorite B&M stand up

Well i would have to say that B&M hypers are quality but not the best. The Hulk is grossly overrated. My favorite kind of coaster is inverted. raptor is fine but batman and alpengiest are great. When it comes to puting a grin on my face ear to ear nothing can beat Riddlers Revenge. THAT COASTER IS GREAT!!!!!

Kraken

05-06-2001, 10:44 AM
Oh, that would definatly have to be Kraken, that was one awesome coaster. However it might change, I am riding 3 New B&M Coasters soon(Raptor,Mantis and BKF) but at the moment, it has to be Kraken

05-06-2001, 10:49 AM
You know what guys since B&M makes the best RC'S then they are all the best. But my fav B&M is actually Nitro & Medusa(SFNJ).

DrachenFire96
05-14-2001, 02:45 AM
All B&M coasters are great coasters...but I think I ruined Medusa East for myself by riding Nitro first. Medusa was a great coaster, but it just...how can I say it and be polite...it just wasn't a screamer. I will give it this though, it has the smoothest corkscrews I have ever ridden.

rockman89
05-14-2001, 02:13 PM
You can't deny Riddler's Rvenge is in there as well as Medusa!

I've ridden Nitro 47 times this year and it is indeed intense. ...but I still like the danglers much better. B&M does not make any bad caoasters. They are the Ferraris of the coaster world

I liked Raging Bull. How about their standups?? I hated stand up roller coasters until I rode MANTIS and RIDDLER's REVENGE is awesome

Dr.Bruce Banner
07-30-2001, 10:56 PM
Ok people what is your Favorite B&M Coaster. It can be anything...Sit down...Inverted......Stand up....Hyper....Dive Machine

Mine you can probably tell just by looking at my name :) Incredible Hulk

Limacoasterboy
07-30-2001, 11:07 PM
For me it is a tie between BKF (any seat) and Raptor (front 4 seats)

-"What is the best..........?"
-"What is the worst..........?"
-"..........versus.........."
-"What's your favorite..........?"
-"What's your least favorite..........?"
-"Which is better..........or..........?"
-"Which is worse..........or.........."?
-Any other superlative

Honan Beetch
08-01-2001, 02:02 AM

Chang
Mantis
Apollo's Chariot
Nitro
Raging Bull
Alpengeist
Dueling Dragons
Katun
Montu
Nemesis

Top Gun The Jetcoaster
Batman Knight Flight
Medusa (Six Flags Great Adventure)
Superman Krypton Coaster
Kraken
Medusa (Six Flags Marine World)

the best b&m coaster is batmans knight flight at six flags worlds of adventure . it starts off with a 161 foot drop and has speeds of 65 mph . you go through 5 heart stopping inversions including interlocking corkscrews plus a helex at the end. this ride feels like it has a mixture between a speed coaster and a normal floorless but has awsome turns and drops unlike medusa!!!:D

coasterfreak1080
08-02-2001, 10:22 AM
Nitro #1 no questions asked

Raptor is the best B&M in existence. This is not my opinion. This is fact. ;)

J-Brew2001

This is always a hard question but I would have to say Raging Bull. Once you ride it you will know what I mean.

B&M did not Design The Launch System On the Hulk They Just designed The Coaster Part of the ride.

I have noticed this thread is popular, so I decided to add my grain of salt. I dunno, this is a hard one. I'd have to say

Sitdown: Nitro
Stand-Up: Riddler's Revenge
Floorless: Kraken
Bottom-Line: Riddler's Revenge

Raptor is the best IMO. The colors, the scenery, the inversions, the little bit of air if you sit torward the fronts, its all good.

Steve Batchelor

I hate this! I have been on only one B&M rollercoaster, and I am probably the only one on the coasterforum.com boards who hasn't been on more then one, and it saddens me, hope to ride many more this year though, I hope to go to Cedar Point, Hershey Park, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and Lakemont Park for the first time this summer, It should be an exciting summer.

So after this summer if all goes as planned then I should have been on 5 new B&M rollercoasters including 3 of the best.

Alpengeist
Apollo's Chariot
Raptor
Mantis
Great Bear

Ooh, yeah, I can't wait!

Dr.Bruce Banner

06-02-2002, 04:54 PM
This is a hard one probably Riddler or Silver Star. Silver Star looks greatand it is more than likey there best hyper looks better than Nitro at least. Riddler is their best looper out of the ones I have been on ( Hulk, Montu. DD, Batman, Kumba, Medusa West, and Kraken) Tough desicion but I will go with Silver Star.

2. Batman Knight Flight
3. Mantis
4. Batman The Ride
5. Raptor
6. Top Gun

Brent
01-05-2003, 04:42 PM
It's a very hard choice between Raging Bull and Raptor to me.

Raging Bull- Kick arse first drop, decent airtime, but bad pacing

Raptor-Great pacing, lots of loops, but no really decent drops.

I go with RB by a TINY HAIR, only because it's a hyper.

may the FORCE be with you
01-05-2003, 08:42 PM
I liked Hulk, but I'd take Nitro, Raptor, and Alpengiest over it.

Pantera Psycho
01-05-2003, 11:21 PM
I'll take Raging Bull. Far and away the best drop of any B&M that I've ever been on, that dip right before the drop does help an awful lot in making that. It's got many points of airtime in it that are always fun, and it's got some laterals and great positive g's. All of that, and it's not a very short ride at all, a perfect combination to make a great ride.

G-Farce
01-06-2003, 12:55 AM
-Apollo's Chariot....besides being one of the greatest rides anywhere on earth, also has the pleasure of being my first hyper.

Aside from AC, I'd have to go with DD and Kraken.

Metalhead 777
01-16-2003, 05:55 PM
of the 3 I've been on. :( I've only been on 3 :( that makes me sad...

1. Raptor
2. Batman Knight Flight(tie)
2. Mantis(tie)

For me right now it's Raptor, since I haven't really been on any other Beemers besides Mantis.

Montu. Hands down. It has just the perfect combination, of height, speed, inversions and G forces. You cant ask for anything better than that.

Its a hard pick for me, but I like Incredible Hulk the most over Raptor and Nitro.
