Superman Ultimate Flight
Batman the Ride
From steve leeHyper - Goliath (SFOG). Apollo's Chariot is a solid second.

Inverted - Montu (BGT), followed closely by the Batman clones and Top Gun at Carowinds.
Flying - Superman: Ultimate Flight (SFOG). As you can guess, no Tatsu credit for me.
Sit-Down - Kumba (BGT). I want to give it to Hulk, but the best part of Hulk wasn't B&M's doing.
Floorless - Kraken (SWO), though Dominator may have beaten it if I had ridden Dom on a warmer day.
Dive - Sheikra (BGT). Griffon may be a better overall ride, but Sheikra works better with the landscape.
From hulk RC3Best B&M COASTER EVER IS THE INCREDIBLE HULK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From steve leeFor standup, I'm going with the Georgia Scorcher. That said, I hate standups...

From Logan Deckeryea I dont really care for them either I

just thought I would throw it out there!
If I were to choose I would say chang. I
From Claudine DeshaiesI guess it's each to his own because I don't really like the Hulk. I have a friend who loves "spinney" rides and I dragged her on Hulk. She loved it and went on again and again. I prefer large drops to helixes. I thought Hulk spent too much time going in circles near the end. If you asked my friend, I'm sure she'd say Hulk was the best coaster ever, too.

From Christy ShumanThe only B&M stand up I have been on isVortexatCarowinds and it SUCKED. I can handle the Togo(Shockwave) at KD much better.

From Jonny ReadNemesis at Alton, amazing!
Posted November 13, 2007 at 10:42 AM
From DV Min order:
Posted November 14, 2007 at 2:21 PM
Alpinegeist (landscape is great)
Raptor (the location is special)
Top Gun (Carowinds) (just plain fun)
Fire (liked them both, but could only choose one)
Dominator (amazing ride in a wonderful park)
From Adrienne McDonaldWell, unfortunatly, I haven't ridden that many so I'll just put the one's I've ridden & liked so far.
Posted November 16, 2007 at 10:34 AM
Standup--Georgia Scorcher(Riddlers would be 2nd).
Floorless--Superman Krypton (I've only ridden this floorless but it's totally awesome!).
Inverted--Batman TR (I liked Alpie but I like the quickchange & low ground clearance of BTR).
I haven't ridden any B&M Hypercoasters, just Arrow. I haven't ridden any flyers of either breed.
From Jacob PalmerApollo's Chariot, Top Gun, Alpengiest...And Christy I think we've been over this before, haha...But you drive me crazy with this Shockwave stuff, ha. In my opinion, that TOGO is a terrible coaster. I'd take the lovely Vortex any day. Haha.

From Iris HernandezInverted: Montu (love all those inversions)
Posted November 16, 2007 at 4:07 PM
Floorless: Kraken (front row is freakin'awesome)

1. Apollo's Chariot
Honorable mentions also in order to Top Gun (Carowinds), Talon, Batman (La Ronde version), Raptor, Alpengeist, and Dominator.

From mark lacey1.Kraken, Sea World.
Posted November 19, 2007 at 4:15 PM
2.Nemisis, Alton Towers (best themed B&M in the world!)
3.Montu, Busch Gardens Tampa
5.Dueling Dragons, IOA
6.Nemisis Inferno, Thorpe Park (Not the biggest or best but it's my local one so it's the one I get to ride the most, only 10 minutes from home!)
From Will BlackI know this is an old discussion but for the most part I agree with everyone's responses.

From Nick MarkhamOkay, here is my list:
Posted May 30, 2010 at 3:29 PM
Best Inverted: Montu
From Erin BI haven't been on one of each B&M make, so I'll just rank my top 5.

From Nick MarkhamDid you know there was someone on Theme Park Review today that recently reached a milestone. He has ridden all 75 operating B&M roller coasters in the world!
Posted May 30, 2010 at 9:05 PM
From Russell MeyerHyper: Apollo's Chariot (Intimidator, Nitro, and Goliath are right there, and I haven't been on Diamondback yet)
Posted June 2, 2010 at 5:00 PM
Invert: Montu (batwing puts it ahead of Alpengeist and Top Gun/Afterburn with its batwing is right there too)
Standard: Kumba (Hulk would be here if the second half wasn't so lame)
Floorless: Superman: Krypton Coaster (Kraken and Hydra are close)
Dive Machine: Griffon (that second drop on SheiKra makes this a tough call)
Flying: Manta (if only Tatsu had some themeing and more efficient loading)
Standup: Riddler's Revenge (only 6-inversion standup)
From bryan shepardi have many favorite B&M's.... here is my list...
