Best B&M Invert

Recommended Posts

I have seen some discussion about some of the B&M inverts in the CF chain. I was wondering how we all rank them? Maybe top 3?

 

Mine would be

Afterburn - Carowinds

Banshee - KI.

Raptor - CP.

I'd have to go 1. Afterburn, Cwinds.  2.  Silver Bulltet, KBF.  3.  Raptor-CP.  4.  Banshee-KI.  (I'm not dissing Banshee, she is a fun ride, but I prefer tight layouts.  And B&M inverts are not favorites of mine.)

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.

Banshee and Afterburn are very close for me. Banshee takes the cake for the more comfy restraints.

Banshee - KI

Afterburn - Carowinds

Raptor - CP

Raptor is getting really rough. I wonder if they would ever "rebuild" it like Island of Adventures did to the Hulk.

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 really enjoy Alpengeist at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Out of the three B&M inverts I've ridden (Alpengeist, Raptor, and Banshee), it's my favorite!

I've been on every B&M invert in North America except for the ones in California. I would rank the top 3 as:

1) Banshee

2) Montu

3) Afterburner

Honorable Mention: Alpengeist

The Worst: Great Bear

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

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.

Welcome to KIC @That_B&M_Roar

 

Now, I've only had a Gold Pass since I was younger. So I haven't had the luxury of going to other parks. Only to KI. So my favorite is Banshee. :P

 

Maybe my Platinum Pass will change that this year. Haha

I have only been on a few inverts but to me the best in the business are the Batman clones.  The quickness and forcefullness of the those rides are par to none.

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