 Review of Phoenix @ Knoebels
0 Rating Posted by: viking78 on 9/25/2006 7:52:00 PM
I dont get it. All the love and praise this ride recieves. I just dont get it. I remember after riding this for the first time. As I pulled into the station after riding only one word went through my head "overated"...and maybe perhaps "thats it". Dont get me wrong, its not a bad coaster but for me it was very forgettable. Great airtime, but average speed, average drop, and average insanity. To each his own I guess. I was gonna give it a 7 but since its been a while and I dont remember enough good things Ill give it a 6 for now. Oh well, Im going to Knoebels next week for the final weekend of the season. Well see how I feel then.

you said it yourself "Great airtime" - thats what people love about the ride. Its not going to have great speed without much height and I dont think too many people have raved about insane lats or crazy drops. This ride is about airtime, but if you dont like airtime then you shouldnt give it a high rating.

Seeing that you only have one woodie in your Top 10 (Ghostrider) and it is not a airtime woodie I guess you are not an airtime fan. I assume you really enjoyed Twister though, that sounds more your type.

Yeah, you are right. I am not a huge airtime fan and yes I loved Twister and found it to be the superior coaster. I do love woodies though. In fact though I dont have many in my top 10 I overall enjoy more woodies than any other type of coaster.

Too each his own as far as your rating goes, though your last statement of your comment makes almost no sense.

Sure it does. Wooden Coasters are overall my favorite type of coaster even though I only have one in my top 10. Exactly what does not make sence to you about that statement?

It would seem that if you like them better than steel there would be more than 1 in your top ten. Either way I dont care, glad you like wood the best.

Thats right. Wood coasters are better than steel coasters because of the airtime you get, even though youre not a huge airtime fan viking78, & the fact that you actually feel the power, character, & the overall intensity of the whole coaster in general. Most steel coasters are all about being computerized & how smooth it has to be in order for it to be a great ride. Thats why there are so many people who cant even take some roughness from rides like Hersheyparks Wildcat, Thunderhawk, & Gwazi just because theyre being so soft about it.

I dont know RC, I sure felt the power, character and intensity the other night on Scream Machine when I was prying the restraint out of my chest.
