Yes... I enjoyed the Haybayler a lot too... It was a good ride if it was raining, because it had a roof over it!

I really like Triple Play It never has any line and half the people that go to SFGAm dont even know it exists. It provides great drops,and a great view of the second half of Batman the ride.But then after Triple Play i would half to say Ricochet is my second then comes orbit.

My favorite flat is Ricochet at the park / 2nd would be Hometown Fun Machine / 3rd would be Triple Play.

And yes this is an old topic, but who cares. We only have like 2 topics people actually post on this forum right now.

All time favorite was the Hay Bailer. Orbit would have been 2nd after Ricochet if they bring it back.
Worst flat for me right now is probably Chubasco because I hate how hard those cars are to spin.

Favorite Overall: Dare Devil Dive - I'm not sure if it qualifies as a flat ride or not but if so, it's the best one no question. Phenomenal experience. Definitely worth the upcharge. Being on a raised platform over the service road makes it even more thrilling. If it doesn't count, my overall favorite is Giant Drop

Favorite family flat: Hometown Fun Machine - Family friendly, yet forceful at the same time. Not to mention the beautiful ambiance and secluded position of the ride

Favorite thrill ride: Dare Devil Dive/Giant Drop - DDD for reasons mentioned above, Giant Drop for the views and of course the thrilling free fall

Hometown Fun Machine is my favorite, Whirligig is a favorite when I want to relax. I miss Yukon Yahoo/Delta Flyer and Hay Baler the most.

In the normal season, my top 3 is Triple Play, Giant Drop, and DDD(not in order). However, during Fright Fest, Terror Twister II is by far the greatest experience in the park.

My least favorite flat is probably King Chaos sinply due to how uncomfortable it is.

As of today, I'd say
1) Giant Drop
2) Daredevil Dive - was nice to finally go on it and it's BOGO for season passholders!
3) River Rocker (only in the end rows) and Condor (great view of Superman!)

I do need more rides on Revolution and King Chaos to see how bad/good they are. I've only been on them 1x each.

Call me crazy, but I do think the Superloop will be my favorite flat. My favorite at the time is Revolution.

Least Favorite - King Chaos

RIP :cry: Anyways my fave used to Chaos and Drop. Now I would have to say Ricochet. Of course unless it's during FF in which TT2 is my fave over both.
Check out my Coaster vids

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P

Ricochet (neé Big Top during this story) has a place in my heart. I already love the ride. But it became special for me when I was able to go on it alone after finally meeting the height requirement for a single rider. The ride op measured me and I walked on proud without my dad, haha!
