Coaster aficionados, Cedar Point fanboys... or any person in existence, be prepared to grab your torches, pitchforks, etc. because what I am about to say may rip your beloved coaster to pieces: It is not the number one coaster in the world. Before prefacing my critique, let us get to the goods: Conformity? Easily a five. The seats are slightly different than your usual hyper coaster; they're not as laid back and leave you with just a smidge more room. Not to mention the lap bars are less snug; really letting your body drive this coaster. Aesthetics? Again, nothing short of perfection. The highly talked about Eerie has not looked better to the left of the train, and to the right of it gives you a great view of the park. The color of the ride definitely resonates it. Speed? Height? All obvious 5/5s. When you are standing next to this thing in line, it is definitely no Blue Streak. While this Papa goes faster than the usual coaster; I did not feel the ninety-two miles per hour. Now the actual execution: The elevator-like lift system, the eighty-degree drop; the near-upside down turns; all great, great additions; however, nothing about this ride felt daring or really like it was spectacular. The drops do not provide any airtime/ejector air, the turns aren't very snippy and snappy like Maverick, and the brisk ascent up the hill is not as astonishing as the obvious Dragster. Now granted Force came first, broke all these crazy records, and pretty much transcended Cedar Point; I think people get too caught up in the stats alone. However, I cannot deny I had a great time. You pretty much whizz around the coaster and done in all its butter-smooth glory. I said Dragster was the smoothest? Not until I took a hop on the Force. All in all, give it a go because if you do not, you are a square. It is rated the #1 won coaster in the world by the Golden Ticket Awards; it is one of the fastest and tallest coasters still in the world, and it is so comfortable, you can practically sleep through the ride. If it still sounds like I hated it, I liked it. In fact, I thought it was a lot of fun (as a grade; a strong B to B+), however it is not the greatest coaster in the world; that title goes to Maverick.
