    Inversions Location Intensity Rattle

    This is such an underrated ride. The first half has incredible sense of speed that rivals even some hypers I've ridden. The positive gs in the first half are so strong and sustained that it doesn't even make sense. The positives just keep getting stronger and stronger until they crescendo in the Cobra roll. This is by far the best, and most intense inversion I've ever experienced. The positives going in are good, and then you get probably the most violent moment of whip I've ever experienced, you get crazy strong positives on the top of the cobra roll, a second great moment of whip, and then super strong and sustained positives going down. The gs are so intense that my legs go numb to an almost painful point. The second half, while slower and not as intense as the first is still fun. The transition into the mid-corse is oddly fun. You have two more fun, whippy inversions, a decently intanse helix, and some snow theming to finish the ride. The location of this ride is also fantastic. Not only is it super photogenic, but flying past trees and near misses really heightens the sense of speed. This can be a little rough on some days, and I do generally prefer airtime based coasters, but I can't deny how insane this ride is. One of my favorites.

    An absolutely massive invert that's filled with positives and whip. It isn't the smoothest invert but is overall a super intense ride that I love. The cobra roll and transition into the mid course shake you up but the rest of the ride is a big swooping coaster with plenty of positives. Great invert

    It's my 2nd favorite invert at the moment.

    This is at the moment the best B&M invert I've ridden. This ride is truly spectacular. The positives are incredibly sustained and the whip is incredible. That cobra roll is currently my favorite inversion I've experienced. This is an absolutely spectacular ride and it also holds the most sentimental value of any coaster for me

    My favorite B&M invert as of now. Definitely was not expecting this ride to be as good as it was. The cobra roll is one of the greatest inversions I’ve experienced and carries this ride, I was bracing for a rattly transition and was absolutely shocked when I got crushing positives followed by ejector airtime while inverted and violent whip, followed by even more mental positives and another moment of insane whip, ur feet feel like they are literally gonna fall off after this element. I just wanted to keep riding and I was waiting just for this element to hit. It’s hard to put this cobra roll into words you just have to hop in that back right seat and let the ride work it’s magic on you. As for the rest of the ride the first half is full on great positives and impeccable pacing, there is also a very whippy transition into the MCBR. Sadly the mid course does kill the rides pacing, the zero g roll, corkscrew and helix do have some nice forces and whip but the ride just doesn’t carry the same speed and intensity. This ride does have a little rattle but it’s nothing much especially if you are in the back row right seat which is the best seat, and there is no head banging at all. Overall it’s a solid B&M invert and would rank pretty good but the cobra roll propels it over the top for me.

    One of the better inverts I've been on, the cobra roll is very whippy and not as bad as people say, but the second half is kinda just there to get the train back to the station.

    I first rode this when I was 10, and it was scary! It was my first B&M Invert, and it was almost completely terrifying!

    Inversions Intensity Layout Headbanging

    What an underrated invert! This is probably one of the most intense rides I've ever ridden. The first two inversions are massive but forceful, the cobra roll (if you lean your head to the right on the restraint) is powerful. The worst part of the ride is sadly getting into the mid-course brake run which has a crazy transition which even leaning your head... you will still get headbanging. The brakes actually slow a lot of the second half down. It's a shame because if it was going at that same great pace... this would be a perfect coaster! Even then, the second half is still enjoyable. Probably my favorite inverted coaster (until I ride Montu or Banshee).

    First Drop Location Intensity

    So far, my favorite invert by quite alot. Its massive, well themed, intense, and really fun. I prefer front row because it feels faster and smoother whereas back row is more intense and whippy. Great night rides on this thing because of the great location in the trees. One of my favorite first drops around. The cobra roll is always bonkerz-level intense, so be sure to brace yourself coming out of the tunnel on the way up. Headbanging has never been an issue for me on it either. Updated: after riding 6 inverts, none have come close to Alpie. Its size and location are its strengths and I've yet to ride an invert that gives a better night front row ride. Yes, it meanders some towards the end but they all seem to do that.

    Theming Inversions Location Dead spots

    Alpengeist starts out very strong. A huge first drop more akin to a giant helix, forceful immelmann and vertical loops, and the most aggressive cobra roll I've ever experienced. But once you hit the midcourse, the pacing takes a nosedive. The zero-g roll and flat spin, which are both meant to be whippy, have no whip, and the final helix isn't very forceful. I think this could be an excellently paced invert if they let off on the trims a little and gave the last half some real oomph. But for now, it's on the lower end of my personal invert spectrum.

    Theming Inversions Intensity Rattle

    Alpengeist is an extraordinary Invert. It's extremely inversion focused, and each one delivers well. Alpengeist is also decently themed throughout the ride, though not to the extent of say, Verbolten. Alpengeist does have a minor rattle, which is especially noticeable in the back row, but nothing too terrible. On occasion, the MCBR on Alpengeist slams the ride to a halt, ruining the pacing for the second half. Alpengeist has its flaws, but mostly it's an outstanding, intense inverted wonder.

    Alpengeist was everything I wanted from an invert. It was intense without being nauseating, and the layout was a fun deviation from the generic B&M invert layout - not just the Batman clones, but Raptor as well. It felt fast, and the terrain interaction was incredible.

    Alpengeist was my unexpected favorite out of the great collection of coasters Busch Gardens Williamsburg currently has on offer. I call it “Montu on terrain, but ALMOST as good” — an accurate depiction of this top 20 coaster for me. Nothing can beat the sheer intensity of Montu’s batwing and second half, but Alpie comes pretty darn close during its very snappy and G-heavy cobra roll! The headbanging can easily be avoided if you know where to brace for it (bottom of first drop, drop out of midcourse, cobra roll, generally the transitions out of all 6 inversions), and the chalets make for some great legchoppers as your train roars above or even through them. I adore the thematic touches to the ride; most notably including the detailed station, ski trough segment after the final inversion, ski boards latched onto Alpengeist’s trains, and obviously the chalets.
