What so you think is the coolest or most attractive coaster logo? I think that the new Storm Runner is cool. Also, I like Alpengeist's and Volcano's.

Great question!

My choice would be THE BEAST, hands down (or should that be PAWS down? LOL).

The threatening-to-break pieces of chain still attached to the beastly claws complete with a section of track make for one of the finest logos I've ever seen. And it's withstood the test of time; it's not dated or old-fashioned looking even today.

Just seeing the chained beast conveys to riders that they're in for a rip-roarin' ride through the woods.

Love that logo!

And I loved how the BEAST PRINTS used to be painted on the ground...oh, the memories!

Honorable mention just for cutesy's sake is THE BEASTIE, which has CORDS instead of chains! LOL

Son Of Beast and Legend are my favorites, nice usage of structural drawings in the background of each. Plus the colors really make them stand out. I am also one of the freaks that actually likes SOB, so that doesn't hurt either. (in the right seat! -right Chuck?)

Drachen Fire by drachen drachen Profile at 11/11/03 2:00:32 AM

Drachen Fire had a sweet logo. Actually, now that I think about it, BGW does a great job with all their logo's.

I think the Beast has the best though. It's very intimadating.

Son of Beast gets my nod, too....evil eyes immersed within the structure of the coaster. I have to agree with ya on that one.

I like Storm Runner's, too.

But there is something about Bear Trax at Seabreeze that just makes me giggle. Link to relatively unclear picture below...

Hate to pile on with all the KI fans, but, alas, it's so true....

Of course Beast logo/insignia is #1. Anyone else remember the old show PM Magazine on ABC channel 12 in Cincy. Ace Reporter Glen Ryle (is he still alive down there?) helped them actually UNCHAIN the front car of the coaster... live on PM Magazine. Then a live POV ride with Glen Ryle groaning and agonizing all the way through... yes, that was cool..

However, I must mention that if I could have real Bat logo coffee mug, I might take it over a Beast mug.

The Bat's logo was like the ride - a little cute, a little scary, and the perfect complement to the creature next door... How about the two curled claws at the top of the wings which corresponded to the new way that the Bat clung to the (gasp) overhead trackage...

Altogether, the Beast, the Bat and the Demon made for some AWESOME plastic cups...

Regarding the above, any links to show the logo? I'm afraid I've forgotten all about that one....

Re: Best coaster logos by NitroChillerNJ at 11/11/03 7:44:09 PM

The one logo I keep going back to and have more items with is The Beast. It may be the best coaster logo ever.

Storm Runner? I look at it and can't help but think someone scared My Pretty Pony.

Re: Best coaster logos by coasterwiz89 at 11/11/03 8:34:25 PM

I think those are all good responses, but you are missing some excellent logos like Raptor's and Mantis's.

Re: Best coaster logos by Geauga_Dog Geauga_Dog Profile at 11/11/03 9:01:26 PM

PKI - The Beast and Bat win for best logos.

CP - Though we may criticize how slow it goes but Iron Dragon probably has the best logo in the park.

SFWoA - I like Villain's logo.

BGW - Alpengeist, IMO, is the best logo there, especially with the wicked looking snow beast on the shirts.

SFGAm - Raging Bull's logo is sweet.

Re: Best coaster logos by Spyder Spyder Profile at 11/11/03 11:17:28 PM

Top logos for me besides the ones already mentioned such as the Beast, SOB, Volcano & Alpie, i would have to also go with Medusa, Nitro, Talon, Goliath, Batwing, Viper (They all have that same awesome logo), TTD & of course the B:TR clone's logos are all original, i mean who would ever think to add the Batman logo, to the BTR logo?? What a great idea!...Ok that last one was a joke...lol

LMBO!
You're good!

That was one ride I completely missed out on....by the time I finally got to the park, The Bat was shut down permanently.

Thanks for the reminder on how cool this ride was (logo and all)!

Lots of good ones listed already. I also like the one for Twister at Knoebels:

Storm Runner has a great logo. Kinda reminds me of my other favorite:

Re: Best coaster logos by AL_W_ at 11/15/03 10:27:01 PM

Lots of good ones mentioned, but the two most memorable for me aside from Beast are Steel Phantom/Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood.

Re: Best coaster logos by gangstacoasters at 11/15/03 11:43:46 PM

X at six flags magic mountain has the best logo

Re: Best coaster logos by Overbanked Overbanked Profile at 12/24/11 10:36:24 PM

I love the recent trend of going to the archives where so many cool threads are still available to access.

I'm surprised that no one mentioned it; I haven't even ridden this coaster before; Just looking in an old coaster book, I love the classic logo of Kennywood's Thunderbolt, the lightning bolts within the two bookend "T's". That (K)eep (I)t (S)imple (S)tupid philosophy always seem to work. That's all I got for now.

Nice, even I posted on this thread back in the day.

Now that we know how to add images to these posts, let me add what I feel is still the best I've seen...

I still like the Beast's, but I also like...

Re: Best coaster logos by Overbanked Overbanked Profile at 12/24/11 10:47:57 PM

^^^They are definitely very impressive.

Re: Best coaster logos by Geauga_Dog Geauga_Dog Profile at 12/24/11 11:34:01 PM

Even though I see I posted in this thread way back when I'd like to add one more from my recent travels. Screamin' Eagle's logo at SFStL is, like the Beast, classic 70's at its best.

This one? Great ride.

Re: Best coaster logos by Geauga_Dog Geauga_Dog Profile at 12/25/11 1:02:51 PM

Yes, that's the one. Even though the trains don't sport the logo it's still a great one (and a great ride too, I agree).

Re: Best coaster logos by beastmaster beastmaster Profile at 12/25/11 9:17:52 PM

I still have my Drachen Fire t-shirt with what is essentially that logo, and I love it. But I've always thought Steel Force's logo..not to mention the name itself..was pretty lackluster. Possessed's logo, along with the original for Voodoo,are cool. Then again, I like skull images.

It's much better if you get a t-shirt with a picture of El Toro, then list Steel Force's stats underneath.

I wonder if my shirt is a collector's item yet.

Steel Force was my answer :)

Re: Best coaster logos by Overbanked Overbanked Profile at 1/3/12 4:14:20 AM

I'm shocked that no one mentioned Loch Ness Monster; It seem like most of the other coasters at BGW were getting love. Nessie's logo is a pioneer to the cool modern coaster logos of today.
