Monster Review

by Coaster Hipster, 2 months ago
The most intense coaster in France as of 2017, Monster is a very exciting inverted coaster! It has superb pacing, a good sequence of inversions and remains decently smooth despite the developing vibrations. Shame it is let down by its lacklustre location and presentation.

Review Criteria

Good

Enjoyment

Fun and intense old-school B&M!
Very High

Intensity

Very forceful from start to finish. Many inversions whip you from one side to another, and there's quite a few elements with strong G-forces as well.
Good

Rider Comfort

No headbanging and the track is generally smooth, but if you seat anywhere other than the front, you may get some bounces from the train during the bottom of the main drop and Cobra Roll exit. The coaster is now 20 years old and starts showing its age, sadly.
Great

Pacing

They removed the mid-course breakes so now the train runs really fast during the second half!
Poor

Theming/Storyline

No theming whatsoever. The ride is literaly installed in an empty field and the station is just a bunch of steel beams stuck together.
Average

Upkeep/Presentation

Old, faded colours, the train storage out in the open, and a developing rattle at some points. Walygator is neglecting their big coaster (mainly because they are cash-stripped to be honest), but the excellent B&M build makes up for it.
Poor

Queue/Efficiency

The ride ops don't let you wait in the station, they're often under-staffed and run most of the time only one train. But at least they make an effort to accomodate single riders :)
