FistedColossus, YES! I enjoy Mako a lot, but it can be a bit inconsistent. Silver Star runs with the pedal smashed to the floor all the way to the end, and I must admit that even Intimidator fails in that area with a lackluster post-MCBR jaunt. What leaves me in a position of indecision is that Intimidator has such a righteous first half that it compensates for the back end. I find it odd that it succeeds so well there and yet Behemoth and Diamondback, despite being so similar, just don’t bring the heat quite as well (Diamondback especially so). Again, though, I think it’s the memories that make the difference for me and put Intimidator on top, but I’ll give Silver Star the credit for consistency. In my opinion, it and Nitro were quite possibly the best phase of B&M speed coaster design when it came to start-to-finish greatness. Also, Matt N, I’d say that Silver Star is easily better overall compared to Mako with, like I said, great maneuvers all the way to the end. As far as your comments on Mako’s mixed reviews, I’d always gotten the impression that Silver Star was generally one of the most poorly-reviewed B&M speed coasters out there, so I take those with a grain of salt. I feel like the most consistently positive B&M speed coaster reviews go toward rides (Apollo’s Chariot, Diamondback, and SFOG’s Goliath) to which I’m generally indifferent, at least in a relative sense. Well, except for Goliath, which is epic.
