It is how I imagine one to feel, so until I get on a real one, that is staying as my top hyper.


Something is seriously wrong with you. There is no 200 foot drop. All mountain coasters have changes of elevation over 200 feet!

^ Oi! I can take s**t from the people higher up, but not from you. There is no need to continue to insult my opinion even after someone else, who has far more power has already said something. Yes, I KNOW Expedition GeForce is not tall enough, but it is still a massive coaster, which follows the same type of rules of a hyper coaster. When I get on a proper one, it will no longer be counted as a hyper by me. As for the alpine coasters, I KNOW a alpine coaster with a 200ft+ drop is not a hyper coaster. I would not even count it as a coaster full stop.

Lots of this is opinionated. For example the discussion on what is a coaster, and what does not count. Everyone has their own ideas, and different views. There is no strict definition of a rollercoaster, but my definition will may different to yours. That is life.

So, please could you not insult me. Leave it to the people who know what they are doing. By all means I do not mind being told I am an idiot or have something wrong with me from Mr Larrygator, or Mrs Shark Tums, or Mr Alvey, or even some of the "big player" members on here, like Mr Coasterbill and Friends.

But not you.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

My definition of a coaster is:

1. It has to coast up hill under its own momentum
2. The track has to make some lateral movement, like turn, loop, etc.
3. It must stay on the track the whole duration.

If all this is satisfied, I count it as a coaster. And as I said before, I KNOW Ex G is not a hyper. I am not stupid. I have put across the point that it is the closest thing to a hyper, so for me it is my top hyper.

except it's not a Hyper.

you, yourself admit this.

so the solution is to adjust your description.

don't say: "it's my top hyper"

say: "it's my top coaster that's closest to a hyper"


there. . your problem is solved.

^ I thought he had a point. Many people do not find it as forceful or intense as the other Intamin Hyper (Or MEGA!!!!!!) coasters, and many people consider some B&M hyper coasters to be boring, like Leviathan. If he does not like it, that is his opinion. I am getting a little fed up with people saying peoples opinions are "Dumbest things said on TPR". He even said afterwards that he knew he was a minority.

There are no words for this....

When a ride is say 2 minutes and 30 seconds but the lift hills takes 1 minute 45 seconds that leaves only 45 seconds of ride. If the lift is a launch like Maverick or Hot Rod then that's part of the ride.
