Your Least Common Opinion?

Not the most controversial view you have on a coaster, but the one you have that you see the least amount of other enthusiasts agreeing with you on? What's that one thing you post and you can never, not even once, recall someone agreeing with you on it? Could be anything as drastic as Dragon Wagons being better than Boulder Dash, or just simply thinking a coaster looks ugly.

For me, I think this one has to be: Raging Bull is the best B&M hyper. Yes I know aside from a few moments (albeit good ones) of airtime you're in your seat most of the time on this early version of the model. However, my favorite thing about this hyper is that it does other things instead of just passable airtime the whole ride. B&M hypers typically have a good amount of very sustained airtime but compared to Intamin, Gravity Group, and RMC, it's pretty weak. Instead, Raging Bull focuses mostly on using momentum to sling itself up into some pretty well-paced high turning elements, and that combined with its interaction with Viper and fun little turning bit at the end was enough to seal the deal on this being my favorite in the set. I love this coaster, I even have the wooden postcard hanging in my room.

I prefer Rollin' Thunder, a Zamperla clone of Thunderbolt at Coney Island, to Twisted Colossus. I think I may be the only person to have that opinion.
I also prefer Kumba over many notable coasters, including Storm Chaser and Wicked Cyclone.
Lastly, I greatly prefer Scream! to Bizarro, SFGAdv. Found the latter dull and boring and the former a great B&M looper.

Lastly, not coaster related but park based, I've yet to find anyone who agrees with me that Animal Kingdom is better than all the other Orlando parks, and I've never seen anyone who prefers Universal Studios Hollywood to Universal Studios Florida (the park not the resort).

Speaking of Thunderbolt at Coney, for me it was a smooth, comfortable, enjoyable ride.

Despite its best attempt to break my neck at one point during my last ride, Tornado at M&Ds is amazing.

Taron is highly overated by CF as a whole. It has too many corners.

Behemoth is better than Leviathan.

Oddly, I hate Thunderbolt, found it awkward, rough, and poorly built. Rollin' Thunder just has far superior restraints and is overall much smoother. Plus it has airtime comparable to Storm Chaser.

I like this, just pure honesty and no over the top arguments or unnecessary insults ... sorry I didn't really contribute in any way ...

I seem to enjoy Superman at SFNE more than most others (signature below). The restraints don't bother me that much and the airtime is still fab imo :D

Twisted Colossus should have a brake run before entering green even if total stop or an extra helix or something (and 4 trains...).

Holiday Park isn't that bad.
Banshee is a brilliant return to old school B&M intensity. The constant positive gs don't bother me.
The Grand National is one of the UK's best coasters.
Juvelen is a bit tame and boring.
Storm Runner. iSpeed. Eurghhhh.
