    Please reference:

    Facts right here. Banshee it just more intense for me. Rode it a few weeks back and it just annihilated me. LOVED it, especially in the back. Afterburn does as well, but just not as sustained.

    Some folks don't like Banshee for its raw power but it's what I want from my inverts and it delivers every single time.

    If “raw power” is what you love in an invert, I best hear that you LOVE Montu.

    Personally, I like the g-force intensity on an invert, but nothing for me beats the pacing of Afterburn.

    I love me some Montu. Most B&M inverts, even the ones that are a bit lackluster (such as Patriot), are still good rides. They definitely have an RMC factor to them.. none of them are BAD IMO, but some just fall short of others.

    Honest question; with a cred count at only 42 at this point should I wait until I get more creds to do a top ten list?

    Make a top ten! Sure, it won't be the biggest, but I always have a good time ranking my coasters, even when I had as 42 as well.

    Great Bear is pretty bad, comparatively, as were the Dragons (RIP).
    I also disagree about Banshee, the back row gave next to no variation, no negatives whatsoever and was just very repetitive positives. I love force, you know that, but there has to be variation. Front was a different beast and was great, not Montu or Nemesis great, but great nonetheless.

    ^Utter arse water. Banshee is badass, wherever you sit. It's mahoosive, fast, smoother than the cream in a Twinkie, got a good layout that differs from the offers, no MCBR, loads of force, some lovely floatiness over the top of those huge inversions, nice paint job, cool name. I mean... maybe some of y'all are just too picky? ;)

    Sounds good to me @Howie!

    I've ridden 5 B&M inverts, and I really liked 3 of them (Montu, Nemesis and Nemesis Inferno). The only 2 I'd say I wasn't a fan of were the two Dragon Challenges at IOA, although I never rode them duelling.

    Anyway, on a more on topic note, my top coasters list has seen two minor changes since I last did it, and I think many of you might be supportive of one of them:
    The changes are in italics.
    1. Mako (SeaWorld Orlando)
    2. Icon (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
    3. Montu (Busch Gardens Tampa)
    4. SheiKra (Busch Gardens Tampa)
    5. Nemesis (Alton Towers)
    6. The Swarm (Thorpe Park)
    7. The Smiler (Alton Towers)
    8. The Incredible Hulk (Islands of Adventure)
    9. Kraken (SeaWorld Orlando)
    10. Wicker Man (Alton Towers)
    11. Megafobia (Oakwood)
    12. Kumba (Busch Gardens Tampa)
    13. Stealth (Thorpe Park)
    14. Speed: No Limits (Oakwood)
    15. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit (Universal Studios Florida)
    16. Nemesis Inferno (Thorpe Park)
    17. Nickelodeon Streak (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
    18. Oblivion (Alton Towers)
    19. Manta (SeaWorld Orlando)
    20. Galactica (Alton Towers)
    21. Revenge of the Mummy (Universal Studios Florida)
    22. Cheetah Hunt (Busch Gardens Tampa)
    23. Big Dipper (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
    So, yes; Nemesis is now ahead of The Swarm! I love them both, and they're very close to one another, in my opinion, but I had two really intense rides on Nemesis this summer which pushed it ahead! However, I am incredibly indecisive, so Swarm might be ahead again tomorrow! Note that I have also removed Revolution, as I'm no longer sure where I'd actually put it.

    That's not cream you cockwomble.
    The back really didn't give any floatyness tho bud, the back end of the train thunders through every part of the layout excluding the bleh roll at the end.

    My two rides on Great Bear were at night, and zipping around that hillside in the dark was pretty fantastic. Plus, there was a raccoon in the rafters of the station watching everyone in line exactly as if it were a Disney animatronic.
    I’ve been on a lot of inverts now, and, as Snoo said, they’re all pretty fun, but if I had to pick a least one, it would be Great White as SWSA. It may be a clone, but it just felt a bit clunkier than any other I’ve ridden.

    The donkey in a hat is real, my friend. Elusive and mysterious... but very real.

    It's just incredibly fun. Throws you around in lots of exciting ways and has an onboard soundtrack to help out.

    Your signature has never been more apt than today.
    Yeah, this, it's great fun. I mean Jay is overhyping it a bit as it's definitely not a top 20 ride but it is a fantastic experience.

    OK, so that’s not the one I saw, but it’s a very reasonable facsimile. Except the one I saw was mostly lying down, just watching the people below it.

    No, no.

    It grows on you. You should’ve given it a chance.

    Honestly I probably should've. Only spent 1 day there and it was a shorter day too, I think the park closed at around 6, and we had to get to Carowinds!
