    Nitro and Intimidator bad hypers? BLASPHEMY! ;) Nitro especially serves as an example that a B&M hyper can have a strong finish. That airtime run from the MCBR to the final brakes is pretty solid.

    Yeah Nitro's pretty good, but intimidator is f in trash. Only 1 untrimed airtime hill. Garbage.

    My issue is that there’s just so much lost potential with Intimidator (and other “bad” hypers). If you’re getting this massive coaster don’t trim it to death.

    I've gotten fast rides on Intimidator that have been almost trimless and it's honestly pretty good when it runs like that.

    When I rode Intimidator (in the back), I didn't notice any trims, but the only airtime I got was coming off the drops of the airtime hills. It was decently fun, but it's still my least favorite (legitimate) hyper coaster

    Intimidator's trims do ususally kick in, but I don't notice much of a loss of air. They still get some seriously sustained float. It may not be Intamin-caliber air, but it's still pretty solid.

    Well some rerides on 3 and 4 have changed things.

    1. Fury - refer above
    2. Shambhala - refer above
    3. Mako - Few corrections. My morning rides were okay, but those afternoon rides were brilliant. Plus, I have an appreciation for the theming, location, and great turnaround. It's also just silky smooth.
    4. Goliath, SFOG - This is still a great coaster and still the best of the models from the 2000s. However, it was catching the trim post-helix harder this summer which turned the ejector to flojector. Still though, that helix is to die for.
    5. Nitro - Those dud rides were once an exception, but they're now the rule. Haven't gotten a great ride on this since 2012, and, while that particular ride was great, I can't put it any higher in its current state. The seats are all torn up, and the rattling is not getting better.
    6. Diamondback - refer above
    7. Intimidator - Rode this in the back right before park closing after it had been down most of my (short) visit. No airtime, at all.

    Lol, I haven’t listed in here for 5 years. In that time:

    1. Fury 325 - this thing is fantastic, and my favorite of all Gina’s ridden thus far. Awesome placement, good flow, and the flojector on the turn back is to die for.
    2. Goliath (SFOG) - I’d like to get back to reride, but still recall it being a solid layout and ride.
    3. Diamondback - it’s hit and miss these days with really good and really rattle-y rides. Still think the opening drop is one of the best in the Midwest.
    4. Intimidator - better than I expected, but expectations were low to start.

    If we’re including the gigas, these are the ones I’ve ridden, ranked.

    1. Fury
    2. Behemoth
    3. Mako
    4. Leviathan
    5. Diamondback
    6. Nitro
    7. Intimidator
    8. Apollo’s
    9. Raging Bull

    Hard to rank Nitro. On its best day, it’d be fourth or fifth; on its worst day it’s easily last.

    But I enjoy all these coasters quite a lot.

    Well, I'm sorry to desapoint, but it might very well be the only B&M (all models included) that I had no interest of riding more than once.

    My list therefore goes as
    1 Shambhala
    2 Silver Star
    3 Hollywood Dream
