    Hi guys. As many of you may know, I absolutely love the B&M hyper I've ridden. When I rode it for the first time in August 2016, Mako blew me away as soon as we plunged down the first drop and over those amazing airtime hills! The 3 rides I had on Mako while in Orlando have really made me want to experience the other B&M hypers the world has to offer! But as I've only ridden one, I'd be interested to know; for those of you who've ridden more, how would you rank them? My ranking is relatively straightforward:
    1. Mako - An absolutely sensational ride experience from start to finish! Absolutely tons of incredibly strong sustained airtime, an awesome first drop, glass smooth and superbly rerideable! My present number 1 coaster, and it has been since August 2016!
    But how would you rank your ridden B&M hypers? Do those of you who've also ridden Mako agree with me?

    You sound as though you were disappointed in it. What disappointed you; I personally loved it!

    Ah right. Thanks for the clarification @MakoMania; glad I'm not on my own!

    The logic of creating a list that can only contain one item baffles me.

    I've not thought about this too much before, but would probably go for:
    1. Nitro
    2. Shambhala
    3. Silver Star
    4. Apollo's Chariot
    5. Diamondback
    6. Raging Bull

    I'll be adding Diamondback, Nitro and Raging Bull to that list after August.

    Raging Bull looks pretty crap tbh.

    I've done 10, Mako isn't one of them. I think the order goes something like this:

    Fury 325
    Shambhala
    Nitro
    Silver Star
    Goliath (SFoG)
    Diamondback
    Apollo's Chariot
    Intimidator
    Hollywood Dream
    Raging Bull

    Nitro, Silver Star and Goliath (which I've only done once so I'm not sure about) are pretty much interchangeable on the list, as are Apollo's and Intimidator. They're all good though, Raging Bull not so much.

    Nitro is a very smooth and under rated coaster. I had a season pass when I lived in NYC for the year in 2009 and rode Nitro more than KK or El Toro in total. Probably double both. It was usually a small queue too every time I visited which I could never quite get my head around. Probably my fav B&M hyper actually.

    My top 3:

    1. Nitro
    2. Shambhala
    3. Silver Star

    Shambala
    Mako
    Silver star

    The only thing I will say is silver star has a better ending than both mako and shambala which both seem to die a bit in the final third of the ride.

    How come you rate Silver Star as your weakest hyper if the ending is better, out of interest? Is the first half a lot weaker than Mako and Shambhala?
    Behemoth in last is an interesting one; I always thought it looked like one of the best B&M hypers!

    Yeah both Mako and Shambala have far better first two thirds. Silver star is over trimmed.
