Underrated: The train. There is nothing better on a hot, crowded day in the park than hopping on the train and just sitting down to enjoy the landscape.
Overrated: Hmm.... I guess I would say the Battering Ram. Don't get me wrong, it's classic. I just find the only time I enjoy the ride to the fullest is when I get to ride next to a little kid who has never been on it. Seeing the expressions of a child having the time of his/ her life reminds me of my childhood experiences at the park. Otherwise, the ride is like one big, awesome looking swing-set that I would totally put in my back yard.

The Battering Ram is a classic. I remember back in my ill spent youth screaming on that thing. It's the old who can scream louder thing. Classic.... I remember when it was popular to scream "Less filling".... "Tastes great".... Ah those were the days.
I don't think I have ever ridden this ride when there wasn't a line going out the station, especially the England one. And, you're right, it does give nice views, which makes it a shame why the ride always has a long line. Although, truth be told, it does move relatively quickly. Is it overrated? I'd put it more at neutral. The ride itself is good, as you said, but the lines are pretty bad most times.netdvn said:Overrated: Skyride
This isn't really about the ride itself, it's more about the lines this thing gets. It's a pretty common complaint I hear that this ride can have some pretty long waits. If you want to get a nice view and the lines aren't too bad, I'd highly recommend it. If the lines are bad, you might as well walk. You'll still get to take in the atmosphere, just from the ground.
