Hi guys. Sorry if a thread like this already exists or if this is a slightly strange question, but I made this thread to ask if there are any coasters that intrigue you. Not necessarily excite you, but intrigue you. I know this might seem like a slightly strange question, but I'll get the ball rolling with some of the coasters that intrigue me:
- Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom - I will actually get to ride Space Mountain for myself in April 2019, so I'll be able to form my own opinions of it after that, but I must admit that these two enclosed Arrow coasters rather intrigue me. You might be wondering why; the reason why these coasters intrigue me is because despite the stats not implying much, I have seen some rather high ratings of the ride. I've seen it in plenty of top 10s and 20s of people who've ridden a fair amount of coasters, and Robb Alvey even said that it and Big Thunder Mountain have better airtime than any B&M hyper he's ridden, which makes me very excited to ride the two Arrows at Magic Kingdom next year! From a non-rider's perspective, I don't see why people like it so much, but I'm open to surprises next April!
- Wild Mouse at Blackpool Pleasure Beach - I know Wild Mouse is gone now, but it intrigues me for similar reasons that Space Mountain intrigues me in that its stats and layout didn't imply much, but the ride got rave reviews from almost everyone who rode it! Even though Blackpool probably had very valid reasons for removing Wild Mouse, I must admit that I am slightly sad that I was unable to experience it in August. Although saying that, I'm not sure if I would have liked it going off of rider reports...
- Phoenix at Knoebels - Phoenix intrigues me because again, it doesn't look up to much from a non-rider's perspective, but it seems to get rave reviews. In fact, I believe it has even been ranked as the world's best wooden rollercoaster in the GTAs within the last couple of years, which is definitely an indicator of its popularity. However, I actually think that the family Gravity Group coasters look better from a non-rider's perspective, yet they don't seem to get anywhere near the same praise as Phoenix gets! I know that it has buzz bars, but Blue Flyer at BPB apparently also has buzz bars and I don't remember feeling any insane airtime on that, so I'm intrigued as to why Phoenix has so much airtime and why people like it so much.
