Having ridden over 250 coaster across the world, I can safely say El Toro is the best out of the lot. The coaster reaches speeds of over 70mph which, quite frankly, is ridiculous for a woodie. With the new-style of Intamin pre-fab track, the stereotypical roughness of the classic coaster is completely out of the equation and is replaced with a silky smooth ride.

That's not to say this bull likes to play it safe; it's a wild ride from start to finish. The airtime is what the coaster enthusiasts crave, and this beast delivers in a way no other coaster can. Airtime hill after airtime hill, the "ejector" air felt is spectacular. And the twisty finale ensures riders experience the impact of a raging bull to the full.

For thrills and bringing the woodie into a modern day world without loosing its classic touch, El Toro is as good as it gets.
