    I defiantly agree that the Bat and Dominator are underrated. I would have to say that nearly every Great Coaster International coaster I have ridden has been underrated. I felt like a kid in a candy store at Hershey park (no pun intended). And before my current knowledge of roller coasters, in 7th grade Roar at Six Flags America took my breath away it was the best wood coaster I have ever been on. I’ll also mention that Twister at Knoebels is easily over looked with the Phoenix there but I thought it was a great ride.

    I haven’t been to as many parks as a lot of people, so my list might not be that big.
    Steel Force. I prefer this to Magnum XL-200, and I don’t want to start a comment war, so anyone that disagrees with me, either don’t say it or say it kindly. This is way smoother than Magnum, basically Gemini at Cedar Point with smaller bumps, and the airtime was sensational because the restraints were incredibly loose and it felt like all gravity had just stopped. At the end of the day, I am genuinely surprised that this coaster gets such a bad rep.
    Leviathan. This isn’t a coaster that gets a bad rep, but is definitely one that is better than most people put it. It’s not the longest ride in the world, and some might even call it short, but during that time it packs a punch. The first drop is fantastic, the floater airtime is fantastic, and I don’t say this often, but the ejector airtime is insane, and I don’t say it often because most of the time ejector airtime hurts, and with this, it didn’t, which is kind of tough to pull off.
    Behemoth. Probably the most underrated B&M hyper coaster out there. It’s probably because it’s overshadowed by its older brother, and while this isn’t as good, it’s still fantastic. SO MUCH AIRTIME! This probably has the second most amount of airtime of any coaster I’ve ever been on (in case you’re wondering what’s in first, look below) and has a lot of helixes to keep it twisty enough for everyone.
    Diamondback. The best B&M hyper coaster, and I don’t hear that enough. 24 seconds of airtime, it’s very fast, very tall, two helixes and a hammerhead turn, and a splashdown water break. This has everything you could ever want, speed, airtime, twistiness, you name it. There’s no way Nitro is better than this. I just couldn’t get enough of this ride.
    Superman: Ultimate Flight. This is one of the more controversial coasters out there, and I think this is better than a lot of people say it is. Yes, the pretzel loop hurts, but that’s the only bad thing. The rest, well, if there was a couple of buildings below and a soundtrack of Superman’s voice and Lex Luthor or any of his rivals and you might feel like you’re fighting one of his arch rivals.

    I haven’t been to too many parks, but I think Raging Bull is underrated.People are always going around and saying how bad it is and how it is one of the worst B&M hyper coasters, maybe even the worst hyper coaster of all time, but I strongly disagree with that.I think that it is a nice long ride that really packs in a punch.It is extremely fun.Most coaster enthusiasts only like coasters because of the coasters airtime, so if it doesn’t have good airtime, then it isn’t good.If you look past the airtime, maybe you will think it is great!Spmetimes thinking like the gp is a good thing.

    I’ve got to go with Wild One at Six Flags America. This ride is 100 years old, but it does not ride that way! It’s smooth for a wooden coaster, you have some great airtime on it and that helix at the end has some crazy laterals. It’s one of my favorite wooden coasters, great ride. Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando is a runner up for me.
