Depending on personal preferences, I think IOA is a legitimate contender to take on Energylandia in that regard.Energylandia has the best ‘top 2 coasters’ of any park in the world.
By that I mean that I think there are parks that potentially have ‘a’ coaster that could beat Zadra in my rankings… (Cedar Point for example.) But I can’t imagine there are any parks that have 2 coasters that would beat both Zadra and Hyperion…
I've never been, admittedly, but I reckon Cedar Point would compete with EL for many, too; Steel Vengeance and Maverick are both phenomenally rated!
EDIT: Ignore me, I've already said Cedar Point. I do reckon Phantasialand might be a solid contender for it too, dependent on what you think to FLY; that thing has had some surprisingly phenomenal ratings, and you of course have the phenomenally rated Taron as well!

Quite a few prefer Maverick to Taron, actually, particularly where only the track and train coaster is concerned. In Captain Coaster’s April 2022 poll, Maverick is actually 5 spots higher than Taron, and that likely takes Taron’s theming into account to a degree too, as members do sometimes rate things with “theming” as a factor taken into account: https://captaincoaster.com/en/ranking/?filters[continent]=&filters[country]=&filters[materialType]=&filters[seatingType]=&filters[model]=&filters[manufacturer]=&filters[openingDate]=&page=1A lot of people suggest that Cedar Point may be in with a shout, but how many prefer Maverick to Taron? Yet Taron and Hyperion keep trading places for me. And only because of the 'full package' that Taron is, without the theming it wouldn't be so close.
Certainly an interesting take, but I think I might have found yet another uncommon opinion of mine.I can’t speak in relation to Cedar Point, but I think IOA’s and EL’s top two dramatically and amusingly wee all over PL’s (from a great height).
I just don’t ride the wing seats, anywhere on the train… It’s almost always quiet enough to be that picky haha.Hyperion is such an inconsistent ride. You really need a hand book how to ride it. Front row middle seat is one of my favourite rides. Back row side seat is awful. So how should I rate Hyperion? Based on my best experience? My worst experience? An average of the two? How do you guys rate Hyperion?
I wonder if Skyrush suffers from the same, almost ‘buffeting’ like, roughness on it’s wing seats.You're right, I love that too. But, backrow still has a risk for a rough ride during the second half of the ride. Front row middle is never rough. This coaster is such a gamble.
