    Honestly, I really like floorless coasters when they’re good, particularly 1-4 which would all rank in my top 100. I’d also say I’m a fan of 5-7, which are pretty good for being middle of the road on a big list like this. Though, I’ll admit, when I get down to 8 and below, I become quickly less enthusiastic for the model. They would all be among some of the weaker B&Ms that I’ve ridden. Batman: Dark Knight has been a bit better on occasion though so that deserves to be at the “top of the bottom.” I’d say Hydra and Patriot are quite simply bland; possibly the two blandest B&Ms I’ve ridden (though Patriot is still an improvement on Vortex which was kinda gross).

    New update from the summer!
    1-Dominator; Was really fun! I liked the speed and the cobra roll (And the banked turn behind it) were very fun! Had a bit of a rattle in the corkscrews, but nothing ride ruining.
    2-Rougarou; Fun, intense, but has more headbanging than Dominator.

    New in Bold

    1: Bizarro
    2: Hydra the Revenge
    3: Batman - The Dark Knight
    4: Kraken
    5: Daemonen
    6: Rougarou

    Bizarro and Hydra are streaks ahead of the others. Rougarou is garbage, really rough, but better than when it was a Stand-Up.

    Yay list threads!

    1. Dominator - It's a 0-g roll away from being perfect. The flow and forces that the first half of the ride offers put it at the top.
    2. Kraken - It was running phenomenally this past spring. Really intense!
    3. Rougarou - The bigger standups had some excellent layouts. The ride still has old school intensity but is more comfortable due to being seated now.
    4. Medusa - It's fairly similar to Kraken aside from the ending. It wasn't mind blowing but it was quite enjoyable.
    5. Bizarro - Rode it back in 2009 so my opinion is dated. I remember it being smooth and packing a pretty good punch, but not as much as those listed above it.
    6. Batman: The Dark Knight - Good ride. There's nothing wrong with it aside from its size.
    7. Scream! - My last ride on it was rattly garbage and the low zones felt like diving into an oven due to the blacktop.
    8. Patriot - I can't imagine this ride as a standup. It was already relatively rough last summer and the layout was not exciting at all. Unfortunately, its conversion didn't breathe any new life into the ride.

    1. Superman: Krypton Coaster- I love the interaction with the quarry wall, not to mention a giant loop with Superman on top of it.
    2. Bizarro- The first floorless coaster I went on and also the first floorless ever built. Honestly, a pretty good ride, not to mention the headchopper effect on the corkscrews.
    3. Kraken- I love how this ride goes below ground level with the trenches and the tunnel, much like Montu, come to think of it, this ride is basically Montu but not an invert.
    4. Dominator- Not to much to say about this ride except that it also has a big loop like Superman: Krypton Coaster, but it doesn't have Superman on top of it.
    5. Rougarou- I also don't have much to say about this one.
    6. Batman: The Dark Knight- Same here. A lot of B&Ms are good, but not entirely memorable, that's kind of the problem. A lot of B&Ms have very similar layouts so they're very inter-changeable.

    1. Dominator Intense, long and crazy fun. Low turn and cobra roll are both super intense. Great sense of speed.
    2. Superman: Krypton Coaster Don't get the hype. It's fun, it has some good intensity but I found part of it forgettable and generic. Fun drop and cool terrain tho.
    3. Bizarro Solid intensity but fairly basic B&M Big Multi Looper.
    4. Batman: The Dark Knight Same deal for Bizarro but with the smaller models of floorlesses.
    5. Rougarou What happened. The beginning is good but other than that, Ive only done one rougher B&M and thats Vortex at Carowinds. I'd say it was better as mantis by a large margin, Mantis was really cool as a standup but as a floorless? The elements are akward and it would be fun if I swear it didnt have the hardest B&M restraints. Easily the least iconic non kiddie coaster at CP and is just the definition of a disappointing, unenjoyable bland ride that doesnt capture the unique, historic and modern vibes of CP and is I would say the only true credit whore and nothing else coaster. At least Corkscrew is pretty.

    I haven't done anything new since my last update but I definitely have some notable changes, so might as well discuss it here.

    1. Bizarro - Not much wrong with it really, good layout, decent location, and fun flamethrower action. Great ride.
    2. Batman: The Dark Knight - Rode a couple times this past summer and was running well. Has a pretty solid layout despite its size.
    3. Rougarou - Doesn't really do much but I actually quite enjoyed this. There's nothing special about it but it's still fun.
    4. Kraken - Used to be my favorite but was running a bit poorly a couple years ago. The layout is good but the rattle made it fall to the bottom. Apparently they've been taking care of it since so hopefully it'll be okay.
