This is a great roller coaster. The whole thing was built for airtime and drops. The coaster is the best when youre in the back row because the airtime is unbelievable. The landscape is excellent and you feel like your going to fly out of your seat everytime you go over a hill. I love B&Ms clamshell restraints, theyre so comfortable and open. The small drop between the lift hill and the main drop adds so much airtime to the first drop. Another great feature of this ride is that you can request the ride operator to turn on the optional "goose-in-face" function for an even more exciting ride.

Hehehehe, my first roller coaster, unbelievable. Terrific first drop and the rest was just the same, very very smooth ride with lots of airtime and this makes it my #1 ride.

This is my "NUMBER ONE" my kids drug me on this ride in 1999 and to the back car this year and the ride is terrific especially if you can get a little space between your body and the lap bar

This is one of my favorite coasters.Even though it was smaller than Goliath,it was better.It has seats that I have never been on before.As good as this ride is,it is still worse than Alpengeist.

Apollo is incredible. The first drop in the back is one of the best, as it will throw you out of your seat and leave you there the whole way down. The flat section of track along the water gives you a sense of speed, and the 2nd hill produces a nice amount of floater air at the top and ejector on the way down. A brief tunnel leads to the third hill, which turns slightly to the left, leaving you feel as if youll fall out while floating the whole way down. The helix is next. The beginning is along the ground and it again gives you a sense of speed. When you spiral up, there are little positive g-forces. It then dives back down to the left and then up again to the right onto the MCBR. It barely touches it, and after leaving it, in the back youll recieve monster ejector air. The next bunny also does the same, and the drop is suprising long as it dives again on the river. The neat diving s-curve will produce hand choppers for those on the left side and the next 2 bunnies are outstanding as they provide a great amount of ejector air yet again. Apollo will leave you breathless.

Do not ask me what makes this ride so fun. I have no idea what, it just is. It looks average from the outside with just a couple drops. But there is some kind of hidden element that makes this ride so much more fun than most rides on earth.

The best Hyper Ive bee on so far. Its decent in the front, but you dont know what youre missing until you take a ride in the back. Such great airtime back there, you wouldnt believe it. Youre pulled over the first drop, then through that straightaway (which give you a sense of speed) then up that next huge hill..pulled over the top, and this continues throughout the ride. The air is great, the speed is great, the coaster is great. If only those brakes were turned off sometime...

Wow! This is a great Hyper Coaster! I love the feeling when u r going down the hill and u feel like u r flying! It is best to ride it at night because even if u ride it like 10 times in a row, u still dont know when it ends! So i give this Hyper Coaster the big 10!

In my opinion, Apollos Chariot is one of the greatest roller coasters ever built. It has more airtime than any other roller coaster Ive ridden! The first drop is great, and the second hill provides excellent airtime, but its the third drop that really makes this ride incredible. That drop has amazing airtime all the way down, and the helix that follows is very fun. The rest of the coaster consists of bunny hops that provide excellent airtime, and two twisting drops on which you feel like youre going to fall right out of the coaster. And just when you think there couldnt be any more airtime, there is. There is a great double-dip into a hollow as the rides incredible finale. Apollos Chariot is amazing, and is worth any wait.
