Sorry to bump this thread, but I have a few of my personal coasters that I think are overrated and underrated that I'd like to share with you guys: Overrated Dragon Challenge (both sides) (Universal's Islands of Adventure) - I've heard quite a few people praise these rides a lot over the years, especially around when the rides closed. But I wasn't personally feeling the love when I rode these in August 2016. I found both to be pretty jolty, uncomfortable rides, and they didn't really pack many forces or interesting sensations of note, in my opinion. A ride doesn't have to be the most intense, forceful ride in the world for me to really like it, as is evidenced by some rides in my top 10, but I feel like force is one of the things that really makes a good invert for me, and it's one of the things that elevates rides like Montu, Nemesis and to a lesser extent Nemesis Inferno over the two Dragon Challenges, for me. I actually thought the queue line theming was excellent on these, though. As for which side I preferred... they're pretty interchangeable, in my opinion, but controversially, I think I actually slightly preferred Hungarian Horntail, as I thought it felt marginally less uncomfortable. Neither were fantastic, though; they were my two personal least favourite B&Ms out of what I've ridden. In all fairness, my enjoyment of them may have been hampered by the fact that they had already stopped duelling when I came to ride them, and I think duelling would probably have made them feel a bit more thrilling. Manta (SeaWorld Orlando) - Now prior to visiting SeaWorld in August 2016, I was quite excited about riding Manta. It was probably my 2nd most anticipated ride of SeaWorld Orlando behind Mako; I had heard very good things about the ride's intensity and forces prior to riding, but when I came round to riding it... besides the pretzel loop, which was probably one of the most intense moments of positive g-force I've ever experienced on a coaster to the point where it was almost uncomfortable, it felt very similar to Galactica in terms of ride experience, in my opinion. Admittedly, I do slightly prefer it to Galactica due to the ride's extra speed enhancing the flight sensation (if you get what I mean?), but it wasn't quite as much of an improvement over Galactica as I was expecting. Also, I think I may have been the only person who has ever noticed this, but I thought it had a bit of a rattle, too. Admittedly, I only had one ride on it in the back row, but it is probably my least favourite of SeaWorld's 3 B&Ms from my experience of them. It's still a good roller coaster, though, and definitely worth a ride or two if you're at SeaWorld. I do in part blame my very high expectations of it on my disappointment in Manta after coming off it, but the thing is; I think I was expecting Manta to be top 10 material and it wasn't. But I still enjoyed it, and I'm glad I rode it. Now, I know I'm going to get some grief over this final one, and it is with a very heavy heart that I add to the list... Nemesis (Alton Towers) - Now, don't get me wrong; Nemesis is an absolutely fantastic roller coaster, in my opinion. It's my personal number 5, it's definitely in my UK top 3, it's definitely the best coaster at Alton Towers, it's a feat of engineering and I absolutely adore it. However, some people put this ride on an extremely high pedestal, and I don't quite understand it. I mean, everyone's entitled to their own opinions about these things, and different opinions are admittedly what make the coaster enthusiast community thrive, but I don't personally believe that Nemesis is the best invert I've ridden, nor do I quite think it's the best coaster in the UK. However, it is very close to that title in my top 10 (Nemesis is #5 and Swarm is #4). But I don't quite get the whole "god of all roller coasters" pedestal that some people put Nemesis on. Admittedly, though, I did first ride it in 2013, so I don't have those nostalgic first rides from the 1990s that some others do. I adore Nemesis, I really do. It has definitely earnt its place at #5 in my top 10 and I did seriously debate whether to put it in this list or not. But I don't personally put it on as high of a pedestal as others do. I guess it's entirely down to personal taste, though. Now on to a more positive category, and one that I have quite a few more rides to put into than the Overrated category: Underrated The Swarm (Thorpe Park) - I don't often see much love for The Swarm around these parts, and I don't get why. Admittedly, I have far less experience with coasters than many here, but I absolutely adore The Swarm! The drop is great, the ride packs a punch, the inversions are great, the G's in the helix are excellent, it's blissfully smooth, the seating arrangement adds a whole new layer of thrill to the ride; it's just an all round outstanding coaster, in my opinion. It's my personal favourite in the UK, but I know many who wouldn't even put it in their UK top 3/5. All I know is that I love Swarm a lot more than many other enthusiasts do. Nemesis Inferno (Thorpe Park) - I do think that Inferno is inferior to Nemesis, but it is still an awesome ride in its own right, in my opinion! While it's not as intense as Montu or its sibling at Alton Towers, I think Inferno still offers some deceptively good G's through some of the elements and packs a real punch! The pacing is excellent, the ride is smooth; it's just a really fun ride! Personally, I don't think the Nemesis moniker does the ride much justice; in my opinion, comparing Nemesis and Inferno is like comparing a Batman clone to Montu; they're completely different scales of invert and they're both awesome rides in their own little ways! It's just my opinion, though; someone else might think differently. The Smiler (Alton Towers) - Now, The Smiler is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me as far as coasters are concerned! I know that most enthusiasts absolutely despise the ride, but I really like it! It's disorientating, it's quite intense, it's a really long ride, the two hills offer surprisingly strong airtime, and to top it all off; I don't even find it that rough, personally. I'm not going to pretend it's the smoothest coaster ever built; there is a rattle there, and there's a visible jolt in the cobra roll; but I don't think it's as rough as some others do. Apart from when I once rode it on the back row and it was a bit shaky, I mostly find that my experiences with The Smiler have been far more hit than miss where smoothness is concerned. It may not be the smoothest coaster I've ever ridden, but it certainly isn't the roughest, either. I guess that it's partially down to perception; there are other rides I find rough that others find smooth! SheiKra (Busch Gardens Tampa) - Again, SheiKra is another guilty pleasure of mine; I know that many enthusiasts don't rate Dive Coasters and find them to be one-trick ponies, but SheiKra has a very well executed trick and some excellent inversions and elements to go alongside it, in my opinion! I found the ride to offer some excellent G's and the inversions were brilliantly executed! The ride was also pretty smooth and had a decent length to it, in my opinion. SheiKra is my current number 3, and I absolutely love the ride! It's definitely my favourite Dive Coaster, and there are so many elements to it that I absolutely love! Cobra's Curse (Busch Gardens Tampa) - I had quite low expectations for this as I hadn't heard much positivity regarding it, but I absolutely loved it when I rode in August 2016! It's very different to anything else I've ridden, and it was just so much fun! The spinning aspect was good, I liked the elevator lift and I kind of liked how it differentiates the direction you're facing in throughout the ride! It's certainly an oddball in the best possible way, and it's probably my favourite spinning roller coaster I've ridden! This is because compared to the Maurer and Reverchon models I've done, I thought that Cobra's Curse was still thrilling, but that it executed the spinning aspect with more finesse than the Maurer and Reverchon models, in my opinion. Overall, Cobra's Curse is an awesome ride, and one of my personal favourite family coasters! Also, that queue is stunning! Kraken (SeaWorld Orlando) - I absolutely loved Kraken, despite the fact that I don't hear much praise for it! I had one ride on it in the back row in August 2016, and while there was a rattle there, it didn't really impact the ride, in my opinion, and I thought that the ride felt extremely fast and powerful, for some reason! I really enjoyed it, and for that reason, it sits at #8 in my rankings! So those are the rides I think are overrated and underrated. As I said above, it's entirely a matter of personal opinion! P.S. Sorry for long post. Also, sorry if I'm slightly harsh on some of the overrated rides.
