Where does this rank among other b&m hypers for you guys? I don't have an opinion as this is the only hyper I've been on.

UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT- it's my least favorite of the three I've been on (the other two being Mako and Goliath at SFOG). It has a great setting, and the first drop in the back is killer, but everything else about Apollo just... under-delivers for me. It's not a bad ride by any means, and I understand why people like it, but for me, it's far from the best.

it's a great floater machine but it has been outdone by more modern negative g machines. For pure weightless-ness, its still hard to beat.

Fun fact: Those are the only two B&M hypers I've ridden that I rate above Apollo. 😋 Nitro is close, but I give the edge to Apollo because of its setting. Intrimidator and Diamondback both suck if you ask me.

Ok, all important question before I answer:
Griffon and Valravn are technically dive coasters, but also over 200 feet in drop technically also making them hypers.

But if it were up to me....2nd behind Nitro, just above Behemoth and Goliath (SFoG)

You're missing one key ingredient. A hyper does not have inversions.

I think the question here is about specifically B&M Hypers (the coaster model) vs B&M-made hyper coasters (coasters with 200+ ft drops manufactured by B&M)
