I love this ride a lot. Its really high and fast. I also like it because Fabio got hit in the face by a bird on the first ride. Sadly, the bird died but i saw a picture of Fabio after and his face was all bloody. It broke his nose

Seem here comes a little temporal bias with my rating - I give it a 9 and Nitro a 10. Only problem, AC opened in 99 and Nitro in 2001. I happened to ride Nitro at SFGA in July 2001 and then ride AC in September. So, I had already experienced the power of Nitro as it "explodes" (as the TV ads said) and then was SLIGHTLY let down by AC. But, one could argue that Nitro should be an advance over AC because it was built later. Well, I wouldnt necessarily agree with that. B&M built Raptor in 94 and Talon in 01 and nobody expected Talon to be better (and it isnt) so all Im trying to say here is that later doesnt necessitate better, but it does open the window for development. Anyway - great B&M speed coaster, ride it in the back seat and also ride Nitro. Theyre BOTH great, I just wanted to give this one the 9 and not the 10 because Nitro is a touch better (in my opinion of course).

I love the air time Apollos Chariot provides. Especially the turn over the water. I definitely felt like I was flying over the edge. Excellent job at designing this B&M!

This is one incredible coaster. With a first drop of 207 (or is it 208... never can remember those things...) feet and speeds around 70mph, the speed on this thing never leaves up. Even the drop off of the mid course breaks gives a blast of “air”. Intense but not painful, loaded with air and with B&M’s trademark smoothness, this is truly one great piece of engineering.

2nd best roller coaster in Busch Gardens Williamsburg in my opinion, but Alpengeist only beats it by a TINY amount. Be sure to keep your hands up at all times. People who love having their shoulders free to move will love Apollos Chariot.
