Merthecat Posted July 31, 2013 Share Posted July 31, 2013 I've never actually ridden an Intamin, but the b and ms I've been on we're pretty good (Intimidator, Afterburn, Vortex) although Vortex isn't the most comfortable, but of course it has been around for about twenty years and it is a stand up coaster. Intimidator is very fun, it has nice airtime, and even styles your hair for you! Afterburn is very fun, it's action-packed, and goes upside down 6 times. After all, b and m has invented the invert, floorless, dive, and wing coasters. Intamin has invented the hyper (I think), giga, strata, and zacspin coasters. Arrow Dynamics invented the Hypercoaster. A full 10 years before Intamin or B&M built their first ones. You haven't heard of Cedar Point's Magnum XL-200? Opened in 1989, 205 feet tall...no inversions...aka, Hypercoaster #1...http://rcdb.com/11.htm Intamin didn't make their first hypercoaster until 1999, when "Superman: Ride of Steel" (now just Ride of Steel as Six Flags no longer owns the park) opened... http://rcdb.com/541.htm And B&M also made their first hypercoaster in 1999, when they opened "Apollo's Chariot" at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. http://rcdb.com/531.htm Dangit forgot about magnum Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
