    Fun Masterpiece Ejectors

    I had been given extremely high expectations for this ride since becoming an enthusiast, as it is hyped up by virtually every enthusiast who has ridden. I hadn't really paid attention to airtime on rides before El Toro as muchas other factors, and before this ride the best airtime I remember getting was on Helix at Liseberg. However, El Toro still blew me away. I don't remember having so much fun on a coaster ever before. Of course, I went for the back row on both of my rides, and the airtime did not disappoint! Every single hill in the first half was a moment of extreme sustained ejector. my least favorite moment is the floater hill after the turnaround, just because it is weak in comparison to the other hills. I'm not sure what rides could outdo El Toro's airtime (Lightning Rod; Skyrush?) but it has made me even more excited for rides like those. I even re-positioned Twisted Colossus to a higher rank after my visit this past summer because I put more focus on the airtime. This coaster instantly became my #1 above rides such as Wildfire, Helix, X2, Twisted Colossus, Maverick, and others. I have been yearning to go back ever since the day after I went last Spring. Please let there be more Pre-fabs made.

    First Drop Intensity Ejectors Disappointing! Dead spots Layout

    This coaster is absolutely brilliant, the airtime is duelled with skyrush for it's intensity! The first drop is the best in the world, but the coaster had a few noticeable flaws, From after the Turn Around to the rolling thunder hill, the layout gets quite boring, I like coasters that are just relentless, which is most of this ride, but the large dead spot really bums me out, the Zig-Zag S Curves are fun, but after that, you enter a Skyrush ending, Meandering and air-timeless into the breaks, This is a great Coaster, best in the six Flags Chain honestly. I believe Jersey Devil will beat this as the number 1 in the park, when that thing opens.

    This ride is perfect! My #1 ahead of Steel Vengeance due to airtime, a buzz bar, and having the best drop ON ANY COASTER!

    The best woodie I've ever ridden, hands down. The drop, the huge airtime hills, the rapid turns, the everything, all serve to give a truly unforgettable ride. If El Toro isn't at or near the top of your list of bucket list coasters, it should be. Every coaster enthusiast worth their salt has to get out to Great Adventure and ride El Toro; you just have to.

    El Toro is known to be the best wooden roller coaster in the world right now according to the golden ticket awards. To me, El Toro is perfect, besides it’s intensity. It’s speed and airtime are so extreme, that you’ll get a slight beating depending on where you sit. I sat in the very back and on the second hill, I banged my head on the back of the train. That doesn’t mean that wherever you sit, you’ll get a rough ride. It just means that if you sit more towards the front you’ll have a perfect experience on this amazing coaster. El Toro is perfect in its airtime, speed, turns, and theming.

    Intensity Layout Ejectors

    The marquee to this ride is the sustained ejector air - the sound of upstop wheels permeates half the park - but the intense laterals into the banks of the twister section and the near misses with the structure that forced me to physically duck pushed this firmly into my top 5.

    First Drop Intensity Ejectors

    I dare you!!! to beat my marathon record 25 straight rides on this during Riding of the Bull. Seriously this is one of the best wooden coasters in the world. Lets talk layout The drop is exceptional where you get vastly different experiences based on what car your in. Front- You creep down the drop then pick up speed as you hit the bottom and if your in the back you will get flung over which is the coolest thing ever. After that you go over 2 straight violent flojecter hills and then curve down into a bank and then over a speed hill which can give you some nice floater moments depending what seat your in. Then comes one of my favorite parts of the ride. You sharp bank left pretty violently if you are in the front(you are hitting it at full speed) and then flung over the "Rolling Thunder Hill" and if your in the back you get one of the best moments of sustained ejector in the world then hit the ground violently and go through some insane laterals before the finish. One other note if you are complaining that El Toro has a "Rattle" then anwser me this how many other wooden coasters (Voyage,Beast,Boulder Dash, Phoenix) have you been on that are considerably rougher, and have you given them higher reviews and been ok with their roughness. When El-Toro is running at it's fullest you can hear the Upstop Wheels roaring on the track right when it banks toward the rolling thunder hill. The wheels mesermerize me into wanting to run to the front enterance. Riding of the Bull last year was the absolute best because El-Toro hauled probably the best I have ever seen it and it's at one of my home parks. Reccomendation night ride during the summer and fall in back car right side. You'll thank me later or just join as at ROTB with ACE.

    First Drop Smoothness Ejectors

    Never felt so ecstatic on a coaster! The hills had powerful ejector air, as well as some floater. There was a particular hill with extreme ejector air straight into a series of banked turns which was my absolute highlight. It was very smooth. The last two hills and the middle section felt weak compared to the rest of the ride though, hence the 4.5 stars.

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors Rattle Lap Bar

    I was expecting this to be better. Much better. Despite its crazy intensity and great ejector air, I found it to rough give a higher score. Even in the front row I came off with a headache. I thought the lap bars were really uncomfortable given the amount one flies out of their seat in this ride, and the seatbelt really dug in. I got stapled 4 times on this ride so that made it hard to enjoy more. Overrated.

    This ride has the best airtime I have ever experienced. It is currently ranked as my 2nd favorite just below Steel Vengeance. Smooth but not as smooth as everyone says.

  • Matthew Kolakowski

    First Drop Smoothness Ejectors

    El Toro is the second best coaster behind Fury 325. This ride is pure awesomeness, especially in car 4, row 2. The cable lift is so fast, and that first drop sends you flying out of your seat. Every hill provides strong ejector airtime, the best I have ever experienced. The twister section is very intense and fun, and because it has steel topper track, it is very smooth for a wooden roller coaster.

    First Drop Ejectors Rattle Dead spots Lap Bar

    El Toro, while the airtime is extremely powerful, is badly paced, has an annoying rattle, and probably the worst wooden coaster restraints I've ever ridden in, that makes the airtime painful. After the explosive start with the first drop, two sustained ejector hills, and cool turnaround, the ride dies. The rest of the ride is hills without airtime and rattly banked turns, save for the Rolling Thunder hill. Probably the most overrated coaster I've ever ridden. I understand the appeal for sure, but this coaster isn't for me.

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors Theming

    El Toro is one of the most intense wooden coasters out there, and is well-known for it's incredible ejector airtime. The airtime is more than any other coaster that I have ridden, and I fail to see how any other coaster could provide more airtime than El Toro. The first drop in the back seat is one of the best coaster experiences in the world, as the front of the train pulls the rest over into an incredibly steep angle of descent. Following the first drop are 2 hills that provide an intense sensation of sustained ejector airtime. Following these two airtime hills and the overbank the relentless pace takes a break for a bit until what is arguably the strongest airtime moment of the ride, the infamous "Rolling Thunder Hill" that dives over the only remains of the dismantled wooden coaster before completing the circuit with a quick bucking bronco finale that gives the ride its name. Although the ride doesn't have a lot of theming, and there is a small dead spot in the middle of the ride, El Toro is an amazing ride that deserves its spot as one of the best wooden coasters in the world.

    I get that it is a splendid ride full of incredible airtime, but honestly, having a seatbelt buckle jabbed into my flesh over and over and over again by the tiny Intamin lapbar that damn near bruises my legs on every hill just isn't very pleasant. A real rethinking of this ride's restraints could go a long way.

    El Toro! What a ride this is. This could honestly be the best woodie in the world. Anyways, you start off with a cable lift followed by the INSANE first drop. This gives tons of ejector air and is followed by more giant ejector hills. But there is quite a bit of intensity on these hills as well. Overall, El Toro is the god of ejector air and backs it up with intensity and high capacity trains.
