Best B&M Invert

Recommended Posts

I can't decide what is the best....

I've enjoy the Batman clones...but love Afterburn at Carowinds for the intensity yet smooth ending....love Banshee for the non stop action and love Talon at Dorney. Raptor at CP is okay but hate how rough it can be at the ending although I love the intensity.

I've been on 4 of the B&M inverts. Banshee and Afterburn are the top for me, but I struggle to pick one over the other.

The other two are Raptor and Talon. Raptor was great on my first ride, but has been meh ever since. Talon I only rode once, and I honestly can't remember the experience. Which is kinda sad considering it was only this past June, but oh well.

I have only been on Banshee, Raptor and the now defunct Dueling Dragons at Universal Orlando. I happened to like Dueling Dragons better as Banshee ended up giving me a headache so bad that I had to sit down and drink water so I could continue on in the park.

Ranking:

1. Dueling Dragons

2. Raptor

3. Banshee

I must say that Montu is my hands down favorite (no competition) invert.   Ever since I rode it opening year in 1996 it has been one of my all time favorite coasters.  If I were to rate the B&M inverts that I have ridden they would probably go something like this:

1. Montu

2. Fire Dragon

3. Banshee

4. Raptor

5. Afterburn

6. Alpengeist

7. Ice Dragon

8. Silver Bullet

9. Batman Clones

1. Banshee

2. Montu

3. Raptor

4. Afterburn

5. Dueling Dragons (Fire)

6. Dueling Dragons (Ice) 

yeah I didn't get Dragons, while I did like Fire, Ice just gave me a headache, and was pretty rough for a B&M (at least that's how I feel)

I've never totally understood the love a lot of people have for Alpengeist. To me, it headbangs enough that it ruins the ride (especially in the cobra roll and the turn into the MCBR.) If I want to ride something that goes upside down at BGW, I'd so much rather get on Loch Ness Monster or Griffon.

But, that's me! :) I do really like its theme, though.

I've only been on a handful of B&M Inverts but my top 3 woudl probably be:

1 - Banshee

2 - DC - Chinese Fireball

3 - DC - Hungarian Horntail

The only other one I've been on is Raptor and while it's fun it's also pretty rough. Finally get to ride Montu later this year and see where it lands on the list

I have been on almost all B&M Inverts in the US, and on all the ones that most people consider the best.  

1) Afterburn

2) Montu (close second)

3) Batman (SF Great America)

4) Several other Batman Clones

5) Alpengeist

6) Banshee

7) Raptor

8) Talon

The rest kinda blend together due to being all too similar.

I guess I need to ride Montu and Talon if you have them above Afterburn.
