I love schockwave (drayton)'s zero g too,

Also got a soft spot for vertical loops- particularly the force at the loop exit.

also like the tight corkscrews, like the final one on montu...

What Element of a ride do you like the most?

Thu May 15, 2014 1:18 pm

Hey Guys,

So this topic has never been created before. So here goes. Which ride at any theme park within the uk has a secret element that you love and adore.

For me it has to be thirteens freefall drop track. Just when you think the ride has finished it throws one more spanner in the works and drops you 5 meters indoors in the dark.

Whats yours?

Love
Bex

Mine is deffo a launch. That is why Stealth is my favourite coaster and I love Rita so much. It is also why I would love SW8 to be a multi launch coaster.

My appreciation of th13teen's indoor drop has increased over the years. Not because I'm liking it more, but because I'm not getting used to it(unlike some other rides), which is something I have to applaud.

Definately the Swarm's Dive Drop. I just love how it swings you over and leaves you hanging upside down for a few seconds before speeding down into the crashed aircraft below. One of my first 'big' rollercoaster moments and I love it!
1. Helix | 2. Taron | 3. Nemesis | 4. Expedition GeForce | 5. Wodan

100% agree. Pre-drops are great, Saw and Nemesis Inferno have got great versions of these :)

Also, I love that little "dip" on Nemesis' first drop, just before the first inversion, the extra speed you gain sends you through the rest of the course at fantastic speed. Nemesis is always commended on its pacing, and I believe that "dip" is what makes this legend even better! :D

The Smiler's Batwing and Cobra Roll combination, intertwined within each other. It looks absolutely amazing (and legendary).

Coasters with additional ride parts before the the actual lift. I don't even mean as big as *SPOILER* the Smilers hidden heartline loop, I mean just like the tiny bit infront of Air, or Nemesis inferno.
