I never thought the day would come when my favourite coaster in the park was a wooden coaster! (I later went to the great escape and found the same thing) it has crazy airtime, and the banks are out of this world.

My experience on El Toro was a nightmare !!! At the very first drop I was lifted out of my seat and the lap bar no longer was restraining me securely in my seat ! However the lapbar was very secure and tight when the ride started...I held on for dear life, with both hands holding onto the left side of the car ! After returning home, I read on goggle that the lap bar may cause problems for older and larger people. It says that the lap bar may slip over them causing the ride to shut down for safety reason.... Ok so I am not that old and not that large,but not a petite woman either !!! And that lap bar slipped over me on the first drop and that ride never shut down, as stated it does for safety reasons !!!!! I prayed to God to not let me die on that coaster !!! I guess I should have said something when I got off the ride but I was so shaken, I think I was in shock !!! I will however contact Six Flags, New Jersey tomorrow and voice my concerns. I conguered Kindg Ka, Flew like Superman,had a blast on Bizarro, Loved the Green Lantern, and Batman was a breeze....But I think El Toro has safety issues that need to be addressed with the lap bars and need to be replaced with should restraints/rool bars !

This ride is my favorite wooden roller coaster that I've been on! Better than BoulderDash at Compounce!

My favorite part of the coaster is the chain lift. I don't know why.

An incredible rush from beginning to end. Enough has been said about the first drop, but even the turnarounds are ferocious on this monster. It is close to perfection, but misses due to two important flaws. First, it's just a little too short. I would've liked to have another leg of bunny hops before the brake run. Second, I just don't like the setting. Might sound nitpicky, but this is what keeps it away from rides like MF, Boulder Dash, etc.

I might sound Crazy, but i dont like this ride. with all the praise this coaster gets, it just doesnt click for me. the first thing i thought about this ride was that the air time and speed was too much. if your looking for the icing on the cake, look no further than the voyage at holiday world. also the ride was way too smooth. a wooden roller coaster should not be as smooth as it is. jerkiness is one of the main things that makes a traditional wooden coaster. look at other favored coasters like raven, voyage, beast, son of beast (when open). a pre fab coaster also does not seem like it would be a traditional idea of a wooden coaster. el toro still has some pretty fast speeds that help the ride expierience a little. el toro may be one of the few things that are keeping six flags open.

This is the absolute greatest ride ever created. I haven't been on much, but this beats anything I've ever ridden in my life. First of all, deciding where to sit on the ride really affects your ride. There's never a line for the back, so the first time I rode it I went there. There is a HUGE difference between the front and back because the train is so long. The chain lift is nice and fast, not making much noise and is very smooth. Actually, the whole ride is insanely smooth. The train turns at the top of the lift and as the front hangs over the top of the first drop, the back starts picking up speed while still on the turn. It RIPS you out of your seat the whole way down the first drop. By fat the most insane first drop on anything. The two airtime hills following the first drop giving off an incredible and fierce amount of airtime. The reason is because the train is going really fast over the hills. Then the turnaround comes and gives off a very strong amount of g's. The next hills are fun, then the best part besides the first drop comes. The train crosses over the bottom of the first drop and into a small hill at a very fast speed. This gives off the most INTENSE and INSANE amount of airtime on any ride. Everyone on the car screams on this little hill thinking they are gonna fly off. The awesome turns come and two more small airtime hills come and the ride is over. The train goes very fast the whole ride, even at the end. It seems like the ride never slows down. The only flaw is that it's over in just over a minute and some seconds. I recommend NOT sitting in the front, it's less thrilling than the back. I will always sit in the back from now on.
