Not just for the ride, but seeing that drop go past you on the lift hill, a total right angle to the low flat horizon is something no other coaster has XD You only get that view while riding and it's horrifying <3

Wing: Gatekeeper
Invert: Montu
Floorless: Scream!
Flying: Manta
Sitdown: Wildfire
Standup: Mantis
Speed: Diamondback

Ban for digging up a 7 year old topic, jk.
My favorite B&M is probably Nitro.

Nemesis!
Especially if its back row. I have only been on a few though. I believe there are only 5 in the UK, 3 of which are at Alton Towers

My favorite would have to be Nitro. Behemoth after that. I just think nitro has a better mix of positive g's and airtime. But Behemoth is definitely the prettiest B&M hyper IMO.

I have only ridden one flying and that is the Superman clone at SFOG. Wasn't that great either.

I've been on every type so here is my breakdown:


Favorite Diver- SheiKra by default. But I've really felt I would always enjoy SheiKra more than Griffon and the other competitors. SheiKra has that killer flat turn after the Immelmann. I love the second drop into the underground portion. It's just the little differences that end up making a big difference for me. But who knows, I haven't been on Griffon yet. But riding SheiKra marks a really important transition in my roller coaster riding career, too, so there's also a lot of personal essence that SheiKra will always have over the others.

Favorite Mega- Raging Bull by default. I know there are other Megas that I will probably like better, like Diamondback or Shambhala, but I loooooove Raging Bull until the day I get to ride those ones :D

Favorite Invert- Chinese Fireball. This is a really hard toss-up between Montu, Hungarian Horntail, and Chinese Fireball. They are all sooo fun and each has a one-of-a-kind element not on any other invert (Horntail has the awesome first overbank, Fireball has the wrap-around Immelmann, Montu has the pretzel loop) but Fireball's wrap-around Immelmann is a hands down winner. That helix is insane. And Fireball has a floater air-hill that actually has good air, which I just verified last week. So, Fireball.

Favorite Stand Up- Mantis was better than Iron Wolf, so...

Favorite Sit Down- Incredible Hulk outweighs Kumba in my opinion. I like the launch into the zero-g, and the Hulk is just non-stop insanity. Taller inversions too. It's just a more substantial ride in almost every way.

Favorite Floorless- Kraken by default but god damn poop piss do I love Kraken.

Favorite Winger- X-Flight by default, and it's fun. Definitely not the best though. GateDamnfuck is probably the best.

Favorite Flyer- Manta is amazing. Better than SUF. Manta has a corkscrew and flying airtime out of the MCBR in the back row, which is a bizarre sensation.



Favorite Overall- SheiKra. If I had to pick one of these^ B&Ms to ride every day for the rest of my life, it would be SheiKra. The airtime, the grace, and forces. I know it's short but it's a heavenly ride.
1-Millennium Force | 2-Intimidator 305 | 3-Fury 325
4-Skyrush | 5-Iron Rattler | 6-X2 | 7-Kingda Ka
8-Voyage | 9-Maverick | 10-Monster

Batman The Ride is honestly underrated but hot-diggity those tight turns and wild forces.

Favorite though is Nitro, floating for days, the helix is perhaps a tad too intense at times though.

^ I agree. Batman layout is a master piece. It packs a lot in a very small footprint. It has intensity everywhere (except in the helix after the second loop, which makes for a short relax zone). Would love to ride Pyrenees, since looks like an overgrown Batman.

(Type)Either Dive Machine Or Invert however that may change when I finally experience a Wing coaster

(Dive Machine)-Oblivion
(Flyer)- Tatsu
(Sit Down)- Kumba
(Stand Up)- Riddlers Revenge
(Hyper) N/A
(Floorless) Scream!
(Invert) Nemesis at Night or Montu

just a side note-Batman TheRide gets a special mention due to the fact that once you ride it, you understand why its been cloned so many times. Snappy Inversions and some great G inducing turns
