    I haven't been on any yet, which makes me sad, but by the end of next month I should have four! Based on what they look like, my predictions are:

    1. Medusa
    2. Wicked Cyclone
    3. Twisted Colossus
    4. Outlaw Run
    5. Goliath
    6. Iron Rattler
    7. New Texas Giant

    Medusa seems the consensus favorite so far. Having been on none but watched every POV a billion times, what about Medusa makes it so good?

    Unfortunately I am yet to ride one, but based on how appealing they look to me, I would order them as follows:

    1. Medusa Steel Coaster
    2. Wicked Cyclone
    3. Outlaw Run
    4. Twisted Colossus
    5. New Texas Giant
    6. Goliath
    7. Iron Rattler

    Of what I have ridden:

    1. Outlaw Run
    2. Iron Rattler
    3. New Texas Giant

    Hardly a list of best to worst - RMC really has a fantastic lineup.

    I too have yet to ride an RMC, but this is what I think…

    1. Steel Medusa
    2. Wicked Cyclone
    3. Outlaw Run
    4. Twisted Colossus
    5. Goliath
    6. Iron Rattler
    7. New Texas Giant

    Right now Medusa looks like the best because of it's fantastic pacing and variety of elements, but I feel that Wicked Cyclone, or even Twisted Colossus could end up being better once they warm up over the summer and cycle faster.

    Of what I've ridden, Outlaw Run certainly takes the top spot followed by Iron Rattler which is also a great ride. However from POVs etc, I would say

    1. Medusa
    2. Outlaw Run
    3. Goliath
    4. Wicked Cyclone
    5. Twisted Colossus
    6. Iron Rattler
    7. New Texas Giant

    Poor New Texas Giant. Still a great ride, but but RMC seems to have perfected he pacing on their rides since this one was built.

    Giant is only one I've ridden, and it's my 1.

    I'm assuming whatever the order is, my top 10 would have 7 RMC.

    I've only been on RMCs woodies, but I liked Goliath every so slightly more then Outlaw Run. It might be because I've been on Goliath at least 30 times versus 5 on Outlaw Run, so I've 'analyzed' Goliath a bit more.

    I haven't done any because I'm so basic. I don't really watch POVs either, so no idea which ones look better.

    The rest in how sexy I think they look on POVs...
    1. Medusa

    Almost what I'd put. I agree with the ridden ones, but I think I'd put Twisted Colossus just above Wicked Cyclone. I think those interlocking zero-g-rolls/inverted hills are just fantastic on TC.

    It is interesting to see how many folks put Iron Rattler ahead of NTG. I thought I was alone in that preference.

    Outlaw run
    Goliath
    Wicked cyclone
    New Texas giant
    Iron rattler.

    And the latter 3 don't compare to the first 2

    Only been on two so far but I'm putting New Texas Giant above Iron Rattler. I love the sexy drop on IR but NTG is a far better complete ride. And it has LOADS of airtime. Looking forward to riding Twisted Colossus at the end of the month.
