    I've done, what, four? And in order of fave to least fave...

    1. Raptor
    2. Swarm
    3. GateKeeper
    4. X-Flight

    Although the topic title clearly states it's B&M Wing Coasters only, just in case I'm accused of being Intaminist by a snowflake, my Wing Coaster list would look like this:
    1. Skyrush
    2. Swarm
    3. GateKeeper
    4. Baco
    5. X Flight
     
    Will likes this.

    Savage that X-Flight is below Baco. Haha.

    Maybe @Jarrett would like Baco, as it's so violent. ;)

    I don't know if Baco's the kind of "violence" I like but it's definitely on my to do list. As long as it doesn't do that jackhammer thing X-Flight does in the back it looks phenomenal.

    I really enjoyed Swarm (it was my first ever winged coaster)
    Gatekeeper is also awesome. It's almost a hard choice between the two, but I kinda like Gatekeeper better. It's sooooo smooth. I love riding Gatekeeper

    X-Flight is slowly becoming awful. Awful rattle/jackhammer and the vests suffocate you on the brake run.

    I actually find it really hard to choose. None of those that I've ridden particularly rocked my world but I find each of them to have a very different set of qualities.

    Raptor is perhaps the best at what wing riders should excel at - near misses and interaction with scenery.
    But I really enjoy the size of Swarm and the anticipation of the first drop. It feels so much more substantial because of the height (even if it is short lengthwise). Also it's butter-smooth.

    Flug is more of a complete package. Some near misses and more forces but overall a bit limp and boring and with some judderiness.

    It's definitely between Raptor and Swarm then. Controversially, I think I'm going to give it to Swarm because it's a great ride at night with a cracking view.
