Between Bobfunland&#39.s glowing, but fair review and the 14th place ranking in the latest Internet Coaster Poll, I was convinced to make the 2 hour trip west from Six Flags Over Georgia to ride Rampage. After five rides with literally no wait, I can say it was definitely worth the trip.

As I arrived at Rampage&#39.s station, I was surprised to see absolutely no wait. I&#39.m not one to wait for the front seat, but since it was open I climbed in. The ride was surprisingly smooth and packed with airtime, speed, and the out of control feeling you want in a woodie. I immediately jumped back in line for re-rides. This time I hopped in the very back of the only train that was operating.The train leaves the station, takes a right turn, and begins the &#39.120 climb. At the top you can see all of Alabama&#39.s Adventure and the hilly, green terrain that surrounds the rural park. The opening drop was much more intense in the back. As I&#39.d hoped, the train pulled the cars in the back down the 100&#39. drop. What I didn&#39.t expect was the strong ejector-like moment of air as you get yanked over the crest of the hill. The airtime was almost on the level of Cyclops at Mount Olympus.

At the bottom of the hill the track banks to the left and your off on your journey. The ride is fast and powerful, but never too rough to enjoy. For a wooden coaster built in 1998, I was shocked at how well it rode. Rampage lives up to its name with intensity, airtime, and a pretty long ride. The circuit involves two trips out and finish that has you dropping right into the station. There was literally no wait and because of its re-ridability and overall fun ride, I got in three consecutive rides and then two more after riding the parks other coasters. I can see why this coaster was praised and it&#39.s landed at 8th on my top 10 wooden coasters list. Final Rating 9.0 (Excellent)

Ok Ok Ok, I have heard some great things and some nick-picky things and now its time for the man who has ridden Rampage more than 1,000 times, yes 1,000, to speak since I was one of the original riders in 1998. I still think that CCI are the leaders in wood, b/c their award-winning coasters worldwide. All, I have to say about Rampage is that this ride should be nicknamed Serial Thriller, b/c I dont care how many times you ride it, you can never ride it enough. It thrills you over and over again. This is also the coaster that turned me into the "Rider" I am now. The first drop still gets me and I cant get enough of that Ejector hill right before the bunny hills. If you are the timid type and you really want to gain courage, I suggest Rampage only at Visionland.

I went to visionlands grand opening in early 1998. Visionland had only one thing that I really care about and thats rampage. The lift is slow which scares me because im thinking of whats coming up. Rampage has some great airtime and it feels like you heads going to be chopped right off. I love the end how you get a nice swooping turn to finish the ride! Rampage is definitly not as bad as some say but its not top ten material either.

Ill preface this one by starting out with the concept of basically driving the two hours over to Visionland with the main objective being to get as many rides on Rampage as possible. Well, I attained four, and could have got more, but quite frankly, the park bored me quickly and I was gone after 2.5 hours. My first ride was the first ride of the evening. I took the back row, totally unkowing of what this coaster did to you because it was pitch black in what seemed to be a hilly, green area that provided only a mere silhouette of the layout, with few details visible. Anyway, after leaving the station, we began to climb up the lift, and you could see the entire park, which was well-lit, but still not much of Rampage. When we reached the summit, the train dipped a bit into a wide turn banked to the left, and when we hit the precipice, the train snapped me wonderfully. Down I went, screaming (not literaly) into a dark, cavernous (with wood and trees all aroung) plunge at more than 55 mph. The back seat provided the best air on the first drop. Then we bent over to the left, banked severely and up a nice airtime hill, with the best air towards the front, but some nice ejector in the back. The train then hit another hill, this time turning around and back through a twisted double out-n-back layout. The layout was impressive, as the coaster itself was towering and hidden at the same time. Many part of this ride could not be seen from the rest of the park (at night anyway), and there were airtime-filled (ejector and floater at points) suprises on pretty much every hill. The final come-back after heading away from the station the third time (including the lift) provided some wicked laterals in the turnaround, as did many of the banked curves, which just werent smoothly laid-out, yet the ride itself was very smooth for a woodie. This coaster had a lot of everything: speed, twists, air, laterals... and beauty from what I could see. The headchoppers were nice, but not the best as they are usually better at night anyways. The final brake run was an interesting experience, as the front car actually lifts off the tracks, and falls back into place once the brakes are released. After the brake run, the train goes through a nice dip with an intense and tight turn back to the station, and ends with a sharp decline into the station, which was quite a nice, jolting suprise after everyone would have thought that the ride was over. In the end, four rides, in the back, in row 2, in the front row and than in the third car. All in all, this is the better of the two CCII coasters that I have been on, and it did something that Hurricane at the Myrtle Beach Pavillion couldnt do, and that is slip into my Top 10, replacing the Giant Dipper at Belmont Park for now

This goes on to my top ten because of several different reasons. The second hill gives great airtime in the front, and the third hill also offers its own fair share, but this ride is just a whole lot of fun. The first drop is great and there are 5 good moments of air in front and the last turns are taken at breakneck speed.

This ride has height, speed, and a great view. Fans of laterals will be might pleased, as this sucker will sling you against the side of the car and just keep you there for seconds at a time. Although the airtime disappoints on the third hill and a couple other spots, there are some good hard pops in other places. Love that head lopper effect on the first drop!

This ride is so close to being a top 5 coaster, but instead settles in the top 20. The first drop is one of the best around, it has some excellent airtime, it throws in a fun lateral/negative g finale, and even has airtime after the final brake run. However, the one flaw which just cripples its ability to be a top 10 is the very poor pacing. It nearly stops on one turnaround and slows at other points where it just does not feel right on this at times powerful ride. Its an extremely good ride, but the pacing just prevents greatness.

Fun ride but I dont see how it exactly lives up to its hype. It has a couple of good airtime hills but not an abundance. Also when I rode it there were a couple bumps along the way but I have heard the ride has gone through a major rehab and is much better now.

Wicked first drop(back seat), good airtime on a couple of the hills(front seat).
