What do you think is the most underrated roller coaster you have ridden?

The Ultimate @ Lightwater Valley.

Never really gets a proper mention but that is probably one of the most intense experiences of my life preceeded and followed by relative boredom. It tricks you into thinking it's a family coaster then hits you with obscene lats.

Mindbender @ Galaxyland, no one ever talks about it but it is INSANELY intense and actually gives a pop of ejector towards the end. My #5 overall, out of 135 creds.
1. Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Six Flags Over Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix

Out of 139 creds

Yeah, I agree. I rode it for the first time a few weeks ago and did not find it as rough as other people make it out to be. Really enjoyed it actually! :)

It only hurt my knees when I rode it a few years ago. If I had some knee protection, I could reride that coaster a ton of times! :lol:

Maximus Blitz Bahn, It has a solid rep but often doesn't get mentioned when talking about the best rides at toverland, I love it so much!

That does look really fun, I wish I had an alpine slide near me in the Carolinas

My pick for most underrated rollercoaster Ive ridden has gotta be The Wild One at Six Flags America. Don't let it's age fool you, this is one heck of a ride. It's smooth (for a 100 year old wooden coaster) has some awesome airtime and a crazy lateral filled helix. This coaster does not get enough recognition, it's one of my favorite wooden coasters (4th behind only El Toro, Phoenix and Outlaw Run). This thing is a beast and it's a shame that being at SFA it gets overlooked.

Sounds like the Legend at Holiday World, everyone says Raven and Thunderbird are better but NO. This coaster has the strongest airtime moment in the park (ONE STANDING AIRTIME HILL) and a crazy good pace with that insane double helix. Voyage is better, but this is around my #13 out of 135 creds. Voyage is my #1

Well isn't the wood and track itself only about 32 years old? I know the original ride opened in 1917 but I'm pretty sure they rebuilt it entirely. If I am wrong let me know.

Probably right. It was reconstructed but the layout is still the same far as I know, but regardless, this ride is great
