    It's a dying breed of coaster as parks continue with their floorless conversions or just scrap them. So why not do a ranking topic on it?

    1. Georgia Scorcher - the only one of these I thoroughly enjoyed. Perfect amount of g-forces to not kill the legs but keep it exciting.
    2. Shockwave, Kings Dominion - I quite liked this actually. Airtime on a stand up? Hell ya.
    3. Green Lantern - Really did not have a good time with this one. A bit rough and my legs were killing me.
    4. Mantis- 13 year old me did not know how to properly position himself in the seat. Did not go well.

    I've done five.

    1. Riddler's Revenge, Six Flags Magic Mountain - DUH?
    2. Mantis, Cedar Point - Not as good.
    3. Vortex, California's Great America/Vortex, Carowinds/Shockwave, Drayton Manor - All total :emoji_poop:e.

    Not a terribly inspiring series of coasters, is it?

    Ughhh, these are my least favorite model. None of them are good.

    1. Georgia Schorcher - Not incredibly uncomfortable. Has some decent turns so I guess it takes the top spot.
    2. Green Lantern - Like Scorcher, this doesn't try to kill you but it also doesn't do anything interesting.
    3. Mantis - My first one, did a number on my legs.
    4. Vortex - :emoji_zipper_mouth: this ride.

    1. Riddler's Revenge. Quite good I thought. Definitely helped by the sheer size of the thing.
    2. Green Lantern. Another biggun. Yeah, pretty decent.
    3. Shockwave, Drayton Manor. Ok-ish.

    4. Skyrider, Canada's Wonderland. Turd.
    5. Shockwave, KD. Slightly more turd.

    What’s annoying about these coasters is getting in the right “standing” position so the blood doesn’t rush to your legs too painfully during high positive Gs. I always try and bend my knees a fair bit but it doesn’t work for every coaster or even every single ride on the same one.

    1. Riddler’s Revenge - Used to love this coaster. Not as much last time. Still the best one.
    2. Georgia Schorcher - Kinda has a nice flow to it.
    3. Green Lantern - I really liked at least one ride on this one
    4. Shockwave (Drayton Manor) - Used to hate it, but I sort of enjoyed last time.
    5. Vortex (Carowinds) - I thought it was gonna be awful but it was quite inoffensive

    LAST: Vortex (CGA), Cobra, Shockwave (KD), Freestyle - These are/were all garbage. I’m glad 3/4 of them are either gone or are no longer a stand-up.

    I've done 5 and don't really care to do any more but here's the list.

    1. Georgia Scorcher - SFOG - Easily takes the top spot. Same concept is applied to standups as is applied to vekomas. I go in expecting the worst experience possible and GS wasn't honestly too bad.
    2. Green Lantern - SFGADV -A long with Mantis this is the only standup I've been on more than once. First time I rode it I didn't have any issues with it and then I went back and remember not having a very good time with it.
    3. Mantis - CP - Similar story to Green Lantern but I like it a little less.
    4. Vortex - Carowinds - Awful experience.
    5. Shockwave - Kings Dominion - One of the worst coasters overall that I've been on. Happy it's gone.

    1) Mantis - Didn't find it all that terrible. Wasn't rough, it was just the whole leg thing. Very middle-of-the-pack.
    2) Apocalypse - I think I have this literally one space under Mantis. Again, not a terrible ride. Fairly decent theming for a Six Flags park. The only real thing that put it under is that the layout isn't as interesting. But for a company's first ride, they knocked it out of the park.

    Why is Vortex at Carowinds so loathed? I didn't mind it at all over my 5+ rides on it.

    1. Milky Way - Airtime. All of these need airtime.
    2. Momonga Standing and Loop Coaster - Yes. Togo are the kings.

    3 & 4 Shockwave and Riddler's. Don't care. One is dumb, the other hurt.

    Think that's it.
