March 24, 2010 at 10:05 AM · I can vote for this honestly! I've ridden both several times, and Apollo is truly the better of the two. Hulk is a great coaster, but Apollo is so much better!
March 24, 2010 at 10:23 AM · APollo's Chariot. Love this Hypercoaster. All around smooth ride. Quick lots of airtime. IHC is a great lunch coaster. But a headbanger.
March 24, 2010 at 10:40 AM · I love them both, but Apollo's Chariot is just sooooooo smooth by comparison.
March 24, 2010 at 10:44 AM · Apollo's all the way! After the first straightaway when you bank to the left and go down that hill it just feels like you're flying for a second there. Best part of the ride for me.
March 24, 2010 at 10:55 AM · I'm not one of the Busch supporters (though I have nothing against the Busch parks), but B&M megas are my favorite coasters. Apollo, Great Adventure's Nitro, and Kings Island's Diamondback are three of my favorite coasters. The airtime you get at the top of the hills is the closest you'll ever come to flying. I can't get enough of it.
March 24, 2010 at 10:57 AM · I love both of these equally, but I'm going to have to go for Apollo's Chariot due to the fact that it was my first hypercoaster way back when.
March 24, 2010 at 10:58 AM · Hulk is fun but either or is deserving to move on.
March 24, 2010 at 11:00 AM · @Buschgardens_VA is twampaigning this tournament for the WINS!
March 24, 2010 at 11:09 AM · Both rides are great BUT Apollo's Chariot is the best! The BACK row is the best!!!
March 24, 2010 at 1:22 PM · Gotta go with the Chariot. riding this in the back is just bliss!
March 24, 2010 at 1:42 PM · I can't believe Apollo's Chariot is winning. Hulk is a much better ride. There are much better hyper-coasters than Apollo's Chariot. Nitro at SFGA, Goliath at Magic Mountain and Mill. Force at Cedar Point are much better coasters. Apollo's Chariot is in fact the weakest hyper-coaster I've been on.
March 24, 2010 at 2:39 PM · Oooh...tough one! The take off on the Hulk is hard to beat, but Apollo's Chariot is an all around great coaster.
March 24, 2010 at 3:06 PM · I still don't think Hulk should've beaten X2...
March 24, 2010 at 7:13 PM · I hope this will convince Universal to give the Hulk a refurb and make it smoother. The Hulk gives me a headache!
