I probably went on this ride a dozen times and got to sit in just about every seat you could sit in (front, middle, back...you name it, I rode there). It was amazing each and everytime. What a smooth coaster it is. My family and I found it somewhat comparable to Superman at SFNE & SFDL, only by the end of the day, I thought this one was better. My favorite ride at BG: Williamsburg for sure and definitely a new addition to my top ten!

Very smooth ride with lots of great airtime! I particularly enjoyed riding in the back, but - of course - the front is awesome, too!

My first B&M Hyper. Enjoyed the freedom of the restraint system. It allowed me to really enjoy the the air time AC has to offer. I am still trying to decide why I didnt rank this ahead of MF. Well, I guess it is the pure SPEED MF has to offer. BUT, AC does have tons more air, and I love how on the third hill just as you start to drop-the track gives a slight turn to the left which makes for a really cool element.

wow! Apollos chariot ranks 1st on my top ten list. The ride was breathtaking from start to finish. The seats were the most comfortable on any coaster Ive ridden. The first hill is possibly my favorite part of the ride itself. After that, the airtime over the next couple hills was awesome. Also, going around the helix, try to raise your arms. Now that is an awesome feeling!:fire:

Very good hyper. It has tons of airtime, and it is wonderfully laid out (the dip over the edge, huh?)The restraints are the best in the world! I hate shoulder restraints, they make you feel too closed in! The air, smoothness, and the first drop that plunges right towards the water, man it was an awesome feeling. As good as it is, I am debating if S:ROS at SFNE or this should be #1 on my top ten...

One smooth, airtime filled, fast, tall, action packed coaster. This is one cool ride with its beautifuly open B&M speed coaster trains. Probably the greatest feature of this ride is that the rider is almost certain that this ride will somewhere run out of steam before making it back to the station. This ride is littered with giant drops, all sustaining substantial floater airtime, and it is a wonder that the train makes it back up and out of the initial ravine. The biggest surprise for first time riders would have to be the fnal 40 foot drop into a man made ditch providing very nice unexpected airtime before coasting into the brakes. Good for just about any coaster rider thanks to its very smooth ride and high fun factor.

A great ride, but Im just not a fan of Floater air, Im more of an "Ejector" type of guy. lol...

Still worthy of a 9 though being that it has great directional changes, a great drop, intensity, and the last drop before the brake run into the ravine is so unexpected.
