    Favorite Coaster By Make

    All right, the title says it all, name your favorite coaster of a certain make/build. Here is an example:

    Intamin -> Millenium Force
    Schwarzkopf -> Mindbender (Galaxy Land)
    B&M -> Incredible Hulk
    Arrow -> Phantom's Revenge
    CCI -> Boss


    All right, you dont have to list every single make/build (I sure didnt), but try to get at least 3 makes/builds in.

    But if you look under the category of make (which is this topics title), under rcdb, it clearly says Intamin, which is the main make. Also Kinzel has been quoted at Coastermania 2000 saying "What's everyone's favorite Intamin at CP?" And jokingly someone else said Disaster Transport as a joke and it was accepted.

    ^Besides Wicked Twister, the others definitely are the best of their manufacturer. CP is the best park in the world, and it is probably the only park that has that many rides that are in the top of their type.
