    Airtimes First Drop Layout Dead spots

    I absolutely love rides that are focused on sheer height and speed and Hyperion did not disappoint. The forces this coaster provides are truly world-class: some amazing sustained ejector airtime during the first hill, some very snappy transitions that provide amazing laterals, and some grey-out inducing positives as well. Yes there is that one hill in the middle that does absolutely nothing, but the rest of the ride more than makes up for it. People complain about a rattle, but it wasn't anything that bothered me. Truly an Intamin work of art here.

    Airtimes Intensity Hangtime

    One thing I do not like about this coaster is that it's not very consistent. Some rides are good at best, but other rides are true world-class. If you do get a world-class ride, this ride is easily of the best coasters I've experienced. It has a perfect mix of forces: great hangtime, very strong ejector airtime and strong positives, with no focus on any one particular force. Launches are great as well. Probably my favorite part of this ride is the double-inverting dive loop. That element is already disorienting on its own, but add spinning to it and you really don't know which way is up or down anymore. And as if this coaster wasn't great enough already, it has an amazing onboard soundtrack as well!

    Airtimes Theming Intensity

    This is a prime example of: don't judge a ride by its POV. The first time I rode Taron I was absolutely blown away by how good this ride is. Theming is excellent (as expected from Phantasialand), providing lots of near misses throughout the layout. The ride itself is a great mix of airtime, positives and incredibly snappy transitions. And the sound of that second launch is such ear candy!

    First Drop Smoothness Ejectors

    The King of Intamin Mega Coasters. Everything from the first drop to the final brakerun is pure insanity. The first half is filled with very strong sustained ejector airtime, while the second half is more focused on quick ejector pops. There are also pretty strong laterals and positives scattered throughout the layout. My only issue with this ride is that it has a heavy focus on airtime, while I prefer more variety in a coaster, but that's just personal preference. Kondaa is still an incredible coaster that I absolutely love riding.

    Nice surprise! Fun Layout

    I was really afraid Blue Fire would disappoint me because I overhyped myself, this ride just looked like so much fun. Then I finally got on it, and did it disappoint? Oh no, no it did not. Blue Fire even exceeded my expectations. Everyone says that Blue Fire is forceless and yes, this ride is definitely not the most forceful coaster in the world, but every single element is just so much fun! Some of them do pull some pretty nice forces, such as the overbank after the looping which provides some great laterals. And that last inversion. My god, that's easily one of my favorite inversions ever. Blue Fire tries to toss you out of the train and I love it. Overall a really fun, reridable coaster with a lot of variety in its layout, which I can really appreciate in a coaster.

    First Drop Inversions Rattle Discomfort

    Fun layout, but four brake runs really disrupt the flow. The main issue, though, is a persistent rattle. One ride was enough for me. The best part was getting to choose your music, so I went with KC & the Sunshine Band. "That's The Way (uh huh, uh huh) I Like It (uh huh, uh huh)."

    First Drop Masterpiece Intensity Headbanging Too short

    Jesus Christ. There is so much that can be said about it. I was scared just by reading about this. Videos don’t do it justice. The most unique coaster I have ever been on. You will never find anything like this anywhere in the world. We went at a time with only a 30 minute wait, which made it even more worth it. There are also issues, like the head banging (I got a smack on the head towards the end that was unavoidable), and it feels a bit too short. But the scariness of this ride rivals any other ride in the world. The first drop into a fireball, oh my lord. Insane intensity, and every element was full of wows. Completely disorienting and one of the most fun things I have done. Even with its issues, the pros make it the best ride at the park. Ride once a visit, but the best roller coaster in the world from my point of view.

    Inversions Launch Pace Theming Capacity Harness

    Literally only 12 can ride at a time, which creates gigantic wait times making this ride not worth it. The station literally is a paint and fabric, the worst themed station I’ve ever seen. Launch is good, inversions are excellent, duration is really good and the racing is more competitive than twisted colossus. However, harness was really uncomfortable and choked me at times. Not really worth the really high wait, but definitely ride once.

    Nice surprise! Smoothness Layout Rattle Harness Dead spots

    This is an interesting one. First of all, if you lay your head back throughout the ride you will get NO HEADBANDS AND THE RIDE WILL BE PERFECTLY SMOOTH FOR YOU. However, the harness can cause a bit of discomfort. The layout is amazing, it’s a classic coaster, and it goes pretty damn fast. However, the loops don’t really offer any intensity, and there are some dead spots. This shouldn’t be torn down in any respect, those talking about discomfort didn’t ride it properly. This just needs a fresh coat of paint and polish, and it’ll be a must do again.

    Airtimes First Drop Fun Layout

    Overall, a fantastic must ride. The first drop is the best on any wooden coaster I’ve ridden, and it’s perfectly smooth throughout. Zero G rolls are great and the lap bar helps with the intensity. Only problem is the racing aspect; I think they should have two different stations or a leaderboard systems for more competitiveness. Also, most of the layout besides the eye-catching spots were a bit middling, but overall some key elements make it incredible.
