Your favorite moment of airtime?

What section of track on what ride blew your mind out of the water in terms of airtime? I have three:

1. El Toro's turnaround hill.
2. Boulder Dash's triple up (kinda.. I think.. may just be a double up..)
3. Jack Rabbit's double down.

Toro's airtime hill next to Rolling Thunder.
EGF's first airtime hill.

There the only two that spring to mind as the best moments at this moment in time.

This.

I think Snoo can attest to the fact I was caught completely off guard, which made it even better, haha. It's only good if you're sitting in the back though.

And of course Toro's ejector hill, and then Maverick's two pops of air. Ravine Flyer II has some badass air in the overpass.

Gwazi (Pretty much the whole ride) - Busch gardens
Colossus (Airtime Hill) - Thorpe park

They are the main ones that stick out, that I have personally been on.

Megafobia's second drop every time for me.

Erm, and also El Toro and Boulder Dash pretty much all the way through :lol:

Also, the lovely floater on Nitro.

This one will seem strange to people.

Piraten on the front row going into the tunnel. I was finding that I would leave the seat on the air time hill and land again in the tunnel. Was such a nice feeling, perfect if you ask me.

That is my favorite bit of air time tbh and I rode as near as the front as possible to repeat the feeling :)

First drop of Kraken, back row

Rita's hills, anywhere.

My favourite so far would have to be on the top hat section just after the launch on Anubis. It felt more of a floating feeling but there was still a big amount of airtime and it felt the same even when sitting in a different row.

I absoultly 100% agree with you on the Kraken back row. That is amazing

The floater after the turnaround on Goliath, at Magic Mountain.

Also the crazy EEEEJEKTA on the backrows of Megafobia and The Ultimate!

Sheikra's first drop. It's a strange mix of airtime and getting pushed back in your seat. And the back row on Kraken's drop.

ThunderCoaster, 2005, the first hill. It was like being hauled out of the seat, then a reversed gravity denied any movements in the groundward direction before you hit the bottom of the hill. The rest of the coaster followed up with similar moments in every other direction. Oh, how I miss it...

Balder's tall hill is also quite good, but its second cousin across the border completely outclassed it before it was raped. Nowadays, Balder is the best source of air in the Nordic countries.

Piraten's hill after the S-hill was also amazing.

I'm not sure exactly what my favourite moment of airtime is, but I can note out a few epic times.

- Rush: Ejector Swing at full height with you hands straight up.

- Furius Baco: Launching 85 mph down a drop says most of it.

- Wild Mouse (BPP): OTT ejector, it is undescribable.

- Dragon Khan:
That powerful ejector in the Zero-G and later emitting that nice dose of floater airtime into the MCBR.

- Giant Drop (Siam Park):
I lifted out my seat on this tower a lot more than on Apocalypse and Hurakan!
