    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. Even so, El Toro blew me away and gave me a whole new appreciation for "airtime". I don't remember laughing with joy so much on a coaster ever before. Of course, I went for the back row on both of my rides, and the ejector was insane! Every single hill in the first half was a moment of extreme sustained ejector. Granted, my least favorite moment is the floater hill after the turnaround, but that's just because it is weak in comparison to the other hills. I'm not sure what rides could outdo El Toro's airtime, but it has made me even more excited for rides like Skyrush and L-rod. This coaster instantly became my #1 above rides such as Wildfire, Helix, X2, Twisted Colossus, Maverick, and others. I couldn't wait to return even as I was exiting the park that evening. It is a shame that this is a rare model!

    This coaster was after Kingda Ka and Cyclone one of the first coasters of the trip. And this ride is amazing it blew me away with the fast lift hill and the first drop. Then the amazing airtime makes it a good coaster. And at the end of the day 2 nightrides on this beast was it def. my 3rd favourite coaster i've done. If you near by do this one i recommend.

    This is a real deal god tier coaster. The bastard love child of Intamin and Rocky Mountain Construction is known as "El Toro". Werner Stengal really blew his load when he came up with this beauty. The first round of hills are all lovely. The second round of hills after the turns lulls you into a false sense of security then slams you over that 7th "Rolling Thunder" hill like some sort of sick joke. My only complaint is if your a big 'un you kinda have to be stapled in, but even then the ride still slaps.

    Bonkerz air. One of the best first drops in the game. Best choppers in the game. That rolling thunder hill is fantastic. Complaining about a rattle on a wooden coaster this smooth is sacrilege. It's also stunning to watch. World class, must ride.

    First Drop Intensity Ejectors Rattle Discomfort

    I thought this ride was a little overrated. I thought this was going to be amazing, and it was a little underwhelmed. I still thought it was a very good ride, with insane airtime hills in the beginning and the hill over the rolling thunder track. Although, my lap bar was very tight and it was pretty uncomfortable. The ride is also a little rough, as it's starting to get older. This ride still deserves a five star.

    although im not as big of a fan as most, this ride still gets a 10/10 from me, the strength and length of the airtime is like no other, but i feel like this coaster could use more airtime moments and some variety as well, thats why i think its slightly overrated

    a phenominal wooden coaster. The first drop is amazing, especially on the back row. I got nervous of the drop when I was on the back every time and I had to go round and do it again just for that. The airtime is brilliant, especially the airtime hills before and after the twister section.

    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.

    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.

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors Discomfort

    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.

    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.

    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.
