Okay, before you all start screaming "MEDUSA!", think about it. I BELIEVE I
read they have very similar trains. So, B&M basically came up with a cool new
train concept. They put it on a twister (RB), they put it on a hyper (AP) and
they put it on a multi-looper.

So which will be the best? TRUTHFULLY?

If you haven't figured out already I accidently used AP instead of AC for
Apollo's Chariot's abreviation.

Medusa is going to be the best.   The concept is great.  The concept art
pictured all of the elements of the ride to be very close together which makes
for an intense ride.  The reclining seats is what I think will make it the
cream-de-le-crop.

I like to speculate about which rides I think will be the best of the new
year... and I don't see any harm in it either.

At any rate, I think that of the three in the original post, Apollo's Chariot
will be best.

The seats recline?  I must have missed that.  If this is true, I really don't
see how looking more up as opposed to out would improve a ride...  Any
clarification anyone?

Well, When it comes to AC, think of it as a Steel Raven.

DROOL.  And about twice the size too!!!  I've never ridden the Raven, but what
I've seen made it out to be *very* impressive, so any similarity these two bear
will be a great thing :)

        Just by looking at photos and in the case of Medusa, artist's drawings,
my favorite would be Apollo's Chariot because I absolutely crave
negative Gs and airtime over twisty turns (Raging Bull) and inversions
(Medusa.)  I also like the woodsy setting of AC too.  :-)  As for the
train design...I don't know if I'd really have a preference.

each of these rides will be great and fun in their own way...all of us have
different likes in each coaster....and if beautiful surroundings are as
important as a thrilling ride, I will have to go with AC as well..

actually, I'm hoping for S:RoS to be the hit of 99, who knows, Intamin might
come out with something amazing.

Medusa, RB, and AC all have the same trains. Anyways, I'd have to go with RB
cause like they always say, B&M is known for their twisting curves, not their
hills.

I guess someone hasn't been following Medusa...Medusa does *not*, I repeat,
does NOT have the same trains has Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull.  I am not
going to dive into a description of them, because they have all been explained
to death.  If you want to continue to think that they have the same trains, so
be it.  But, they do not have the same trains.

True also I think that AC does not have the sideless coaches but RB does.
