What's The Best B&M Hyper You've Been On?
My favorite coaster type is the Hyper by B&M.
200+ ft, 4 seats across, clamshell restraint, amazing aesthetic, I just can't get enough of these roller coasters.
I haven't ridden a giga (300+ ft), like Fury yet, so what is YOUR favorite Hyper from B&M that you've ridden?
I've ridden: 6 out of the 18 listed on rcdb (dot com)
- Nitro (Six Flags Great Adventure)
- Apollo's Chariot (Busch Garden's Williamsburg)
- Diamondback (Kings Island)
- Goliath (Six Flags Over Georgia)
- Raging Bull - (Six Flags Great America)
- Intimidator - Carowinds
For me, my home park is Six Flags Great Adventure, and my favorite coaster is Nitro. So that's just a given. It's scenery is amazing. Night rides are amazing. It has aged like fine wine, it's the total package.
So what's the next one I consider as my "favorite"? I'd have to give it to Apollo's Chariot. It has a straight drop, with sort of a running start, and it hugs the terrain of Busch Gardens in such beautiful and powerful ways. It's really an amazing ride/experience. I also have ridden it at night and it truly shines in the dark. AC was also the first B&M Hyper, and debuted in 1999.

I've also been on Orion, and it's better by leaps and bounds than all of the above!
