    You never know; RMC apparently have an ability to cram airtime into inversions, as insane as that sounds!

    youre an idiot if you ever completely judge any coaster before actually riding it

    No I'm not. I know what I like in a coaster so I have an idea of what elements make a great ride for me personally. You clearly haven't ridden many coasters, since you haven't realized this yet.

    Are you saying that as though you have ridden many coasters? Looking at your Top 10, I'd say you haven't.

    If you judge a ride completely before riding it, what's the point in riding it?

    Sure, you know if it's your thing or not your thing, but you can never really judge it until you've done it surely

    Who totally judges a ride before riding it? I'm expecting every Gerst to ride like :emoji_poop: but that's expectation, not completing judging the ride.
    I guess if looking at POVs and layouts online is your way of riding then sure, maybe get out more.

    I hadn’t even realised that they’d released a full pov of this ride in order to judge how much airtime there is? Anyone got a link to it, must have missed it myself ;)

    Walibi Holland already have 2 coasters with tonnes of airtime, Goliath and Lost Gravity. Do they really need a third? I'm going to imagine it'll be like Wild Fire, enough airtime with some nice inversions. A nice all rounder.

    I don't TOTALLY judge them before I ride them, but I have an idea what I know I like. I don't know my official coaster count but I know it's in the region of 150-200 coasters.

    @CrashCoaster I think it's fair to assume that with that many inversions, it could potentially limit the airtime potential.

    However it turns out, this is still going to be incredible.

    Us enthusiasts love defining elements, but the manufactures do not help us at all lol. Look at a Gerstlauer Immelman compared to a B&M Immelman, add ontop that most parks will rename them anyway. I'm half thinking we should just catagorise inversions as twists, loops and half loops.

    150-200 yet Revolution is in your top 10? Ok. I love how this has a 'greater number of inversions' when in reality there's literally ONE that we can just about make out and that's not even been 100% guaranteed.

    I would understand having some sort of expectations on a ride you haven't ridden yet, but we don't even know what the layout will be like so it's impossible to be disappointed or "annoyed" right now.

    Right now, all that really matters (and all we really know) is that we have an RMC conversion under construction. I trust RMC to make a solid ride, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

    I have got that many creds, I have quite a lot from Florida but I can't remember the ride experiences, which is why they aren't in my top. I actually really enjoy Revolution, mainly for nostalgia, but also because it is very intense, it's smooth and has some good ejector at either end, especially with a loose restraint.

    There’s less than 50 coasters in Florida, and if you were too young to remember riding them you were too young to ride half of them, and the other half wouldn’t have been built.

    Your original tone of ‘you’ve clearly not ridden much’ is A. Rude and B. Totally unjustified when you’ve not ridden much.

    But sure you judge a ride based on a potential maybe rumour, that’s smart.

    Also if you want to argue inversions can’t have airtime clearly you’ve never ridden an RMC.

    It's a 12,5% increase in height... That's a lot ;)

    Soooo. You don't like inversions right? Why is Smiler then in your top? :p

    To be fair to @CrashCoaster, he might really like Revolution. And even if he'd ridden 1000 coasters, it's his opinion and if he likes Revolution enough for it to be in his top 10, then that's fine by me.

    But with regards to judging how Untamed will ride prior to riding it, I'd imagine it's quite hard, as RMC apparently like to profile their inversions in a way such that the riders get airtime during the inversions. Besides, I would put nothing past RMC after their most recent installations!
