Georgia Cyclone, back row, most drops especially the first one.

Ninja at SFOG for the headchoppers

FOF at PKD for the same reason

Big Dipper at SFWOA. I know, it's a small ride, but it feels like I'm gonna fly forward and knock a tooth out on the front of the car. I'm kind of thin, and that's also a problem.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

Until you've ridden White Cyclone in Nagashima Japan, you have no idea what hand choppers are.

Just psycho.

TTD - the exceleration is enough to make me hold on for dear life -- coming off the top of the hill though I had my hands up :)

MF after the second overbanked turn. My hands can be up for all of the ride except there. It's funny watching the whole trainload have their hands up and all at the same time put them down for that hand chopper and then put them up again.

I'm afraid to put my hands up on Grizzly at PGA becuase I fear the park managers may see that and mistakenly interpret that I'm having fun.

Apollo Chariot but only when i am in the left front seat and we are on the drop for the turn around. There are a few other but only cause they are to rough to put my hands up.

Idora 360...I second that motion on Big Dipper. It was the first coaster that came to mind when I saw this thread.

Superman: Ride of Steel at SFDL.... if you're sitting on the inside seat, when you come out of the first full helix, and you travel under that helix towards the straight-a-way.... I swear, your hands could EASILY hit the support above you.

I've also heard that some peeps have hit that with their hand, but that could all be myth, since travelling at that speed would probably break the hand or at least severly injure it.

I'd have to go with MF's 1st overbank where they had to remove the piece of the support...hitting that hunk of metal going that fast wouldn't be fun, especially having to go the rest of the ride with it.

Nasai: I thought you said once that Coaster had such extreme ejector air that you couldn't keep your hands up?

Nope.

Although I find that more and more, I'm less likely to ride with my hands up as a personal decision. Weird.

The American Eagle at SFGAm upon exiting the large helix.

Also, it takes a good deal of courage to let go of the bar in the last row on Raging Bull for the first drop.

I don't know how no one has mentioned Tremors at Silverwood. That's one of the ONLY coasters that I thought I feared for my fingers. During the CAC03 ERT in the dark, it was scary because even though you knew the tunnels were there, they hit you like a brick wall. The sound and feeling of warm air in the cool night was really weird. Seriously, how could you not be scared with signs like this around the ride. *** Edited 1/11/2004 6:23:25 AM UTC by GoliathKills***

Wow, that's a harsh sign.

Scandia Screamer has some really good handchoppers too.

Screechin Eagle for me also!

At first it's fun to raise your hands but once that airtime kicks in you are kinda FORCED to hold on.
