Quick question: Has Medusa Ride of Steel run with Virtual Reality?


It had VR for less than a year, but they've removed it now and I think its on something else instead (slc?)

I would personally love to see how certain coasters did by type. For instance how did the B&M inverts rank, hypers, floorless, the Intamin hypers, top launch coasters, etc since we have threads for those things on here, it would be neat to see how they did after a real poll.

I mean I could look that stuff up but I'm a lazy as*h^le so if there's a quicker way for you guys to show that awesome. If not, its really no biggie lol.

I did look up Great Adventures top 5 just for fun:
Nitro #26 steel, #32 overall
Kingda Ka #56 steel, #75 overall
Batman #113 steel, #144 overall
Bizarro #119 steel, #154 overall

Really can't understand such high praise for El Toro or Outlaw Run. Both are awesome rides, but El Toro at 1 and Outlaw Run at 4 for wooden coasters? I see Toro as a borderline top 10 wooden coaster and OR as nowhere near top 10 honestly, as I was very underwhelmed by it (maybe night rides would have changed that).
Top Ten: 1) Maverick 2) Boulder Dash 3) Skyrush 4) Superman The Ride 5) Wicked Cyclone 6) El Toro 7) Boardwalk Bullet 8) Time Traveler 9) Outlaw Run 10) Storm Runner

Why do I still have a donkey title???

More stats!

This time, we're looking at best from each manufacturer, again based off of the combined list (because some manufacturers do wooden AND steel coasters). The manufacturers here on the list all have at least a few coasters that are at / near the top, and all of them meet our ridership requirements for ranking. If you really, really want me to do something like best Zamperla coasters, or best Soquet coasters, or some obscure list like that, well, then you really don't have a life and I feel sorry for you. ;)

Arrow Dynamics: X2, Magnum XL-200, Steeplechase (Pleasure Beach), Tennessee Tornado, Bat (Kings Island)
B&M: Fury 325, Shambhala, Katun, Flying Dinosaur, Nemesis
Chance / Morgan: Lightning Run, Phantom's Revenge*, Steel Dragon 2000, Steel Eel, Wild Thing
Custom / in-house / unique: Cannibal, Coaster (PNE), Beast, Giant Dipper (SCBB), Space Mountain (DLR)
CCI: Boulder Dash, Shivering Timbers, Raven, GhostRider**, Legend
Gerstlauer: Schwur des Kärnan, Gold Rush (Slagharen), Fluch von Novgorod, Monster (Adventureland), Smiler
Gravity Group / Gravitykraft: Ravine Flyer II, Voyage, Mine Blower, Twister (Grona Lund), Wooden Warrior
GCI: Gold Striker, Mystic Timbers, Troy, Renegade, Kentucky Rumbler
Intamin: El Toro (Great Adventure), Maverick, Expedition GeForce, Intimidator 305, Skyrush
Mack: Helix, Lost Gravity, Blue Fire clones, Space Fantasy The Ride, Star Trek Operation Enterprise
Maurer: Winjas Fear, Winjas Force, Formule X, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, Dragon's Fury
Premier: Revenge of the Mummy (USS), Mr. Freeze (SFOT), YOLOCoaster, Revenge of the Mummy (USF), Mr. Freeze (SFStL)
RMC: Medusa Steel Coaster***, Lightning Rod, Wildfire (Kolmarden), Outlaw Run, Storm Chaser
S&S: Do-Dodonpa, Powder Keg, Eejanaika, Tranan, El Loco (Adventuredome)
Schwarzkopf: Olympia Looping, Shockwave (SFOT), Lisebergbanan, Mind Bender (SFOG), Teststrecke
Vekoma: Tron Lightcycle Power Run, Big Grizzly Mountain, Expedition Everest, Big Thunder Mountain (DLP), Xpress Platform 13

* Phantom's Revenge is considered a Morgan even though it runs Arrow trains and has sections of Arrow track.
** GhostRider was renovated by GCI but still maintains the original CCI layout.
*** Medusa Steel Coaster is the #1 steel coaster but actually placed third among RMCs in the combined poll behind Lightning Rod and Wildfire.

Here's another stat idea, and sorry if I've missed this one -- but how about list of the top coasters in terms of total riders?
