After going on all 4 NA gigas in just under 2 months I can say the B&Ms just don't compare to the intamins. B&M is definitely improving, but I doubt they'll ever be able to beat intamin. Even though Fury is so big at the end of the ride I still wanted more. After a ride like I305 all you can think is "WOW".

    It's all about the pure injector airtime and the constant maintain speed throughout the ride. Savior it as long as you can.

    I think intamin have so much umph to them while the B&Ms are so big but almost seem to meander. Fury felt so drawn out and outside of a good 1st drop there's nothing else that's really that great.

Just thinking about this now, but I rode Maverick 9 times Sunday in different seats, and I found there isn't a bad seat on that ride. Am I crazy? Or is Maverick just the best coaster in the world!

    3rd best but most complete ride IMO on the entire planet. 4th best if we're accounting for wood.

    You'll love it! Not just the free drinks and to me personally the friendliest people at the park. But the Voyage and Thunderbird will highlight your day. Prepare yourself.

Will Skyrush become my new favorite coaster, and replace Maverick at the top of my list, or settle for second best?

    yes I305 is amazing even my mom who isn't a big rollercoaster person noticed how it has both MF and Maverick parts to it. Skyrush still to me is the far more intense of the 3 intense intamin in the US. I think Maverick is the most complete/diverse ride but my least favorite of the 3.

    Def. like Maverick as far as the transition turns. I would say it's a distant cousin if sky rush was a sit down coaster and 300 ft high.

Seriously Universal, what are you doing with the JP Franchise!!! lol Another cashew left behind and how its having long legs after its initial release.

    if you are comparing it against the best movie ever made, sure it falls short. This one is probably top 5 movies ever made. In any case, yeah, Universal screwed up big time here.

    Yes Jeff goldblum still has been in 3 of the top 5 grossing movies of all time. But I can't help compiar sequels to each other. It wasn't bad I don't want to discuss any plot elements to spoil it though. They would have some issue recreating that ride vehicle for an attraction at universal in the future.

Intamin did it again. I305 was just phenomenal as once again my #1 steel has changed to it. When Intamin does it right(and they do that more than they don't) their rides are just on another level. Unfortunately, now other than Cheetah Hunt, I have no more big new intamins to ride inside the US.

    Cheetah hunt is the best family coaster out there, but not a high thrill ride. I got my fingers crossed for an intamin comeback in 2016

    Yes Indeed. The Wild West will always be at Sandusky.

    Hershey is the last hope and if they do Im gonna consider them the new Intamin capital of the world. If not Hershey I think it's a safe bet Intamin is no longer going to make coasters in the US.

Just got back from Hershey and Skyrush is just amazing hard to say id it's better than rides like Maverick but the fear is brings out in me makes it my new #1 steel. After riding it around 85 times the rise never got boring and the ride stayed as intense as the first ride.

    I'm in Virginia currently so will be going to KD anyday now. Super excited to see how I305 stacks up and whether I'll be able to ride it anywhere near the approximately 85 times I rode Skyush.

    You will, you be surprised the line on I305 is a walk-on everytime. You won't see that on Skyrush. I was only able to ride 5 times this past weekend. Lucky you.

    The person I was riding with knew the GM so they allowed us to stay on and just fill whatever empty seats there were. The line though was never over 15 min.

Cross country roadtrip isn't going so well. First two parks (Canada's Wonderland and Michigan's Adventure) have been extremely disappointing. Hoping the trips gets better as 3 more weeks of disappointment would suck.

    both those parks have 1-2 top tier coasters and a lot of junk after. I think you'll find that a lot when traveling outside CP.

    Agreed I just thought Leviathan would at least compare to a ride like Millennium but Leviathan felt really short and boring. Thought Behemoth was the better ride but not by much.
