I've been on Shockwave at PKD and for a stand up, it's smooth sailing until after the loop, then it's bad.

The Skyrider at PCW was pretty smooth i think, more so than any other i can remember. Actually its probably my favorite stand-up, better than mantis, iron wolf, and riddler

Smooth like B&M and Intamin? No.

Some of their coasters are not too rough, like their standups as mentioned above. Some others (Windjammer, Manhattan Express, Viper) can be downright BRUTAL and among the roughest coasters out there. OUCH!!!!

Shockwave @ PKD and King Cobra @ PKI smooth? Those trains are torture chambers - nasty!

The 259 FT Fujiyama hyper-coaster in Japan is said to be quite smooth...and it debuted in 1996.

TOGO makes some brutal coasters. VIPER at SFGADV is a rough one. just look at the OTSR, very painfull and cannot be good for your back. ouch. i dont know about other TOGO tracks but i hear they are all somewhat rough.

no smooth TOGOs? what about fujiyama? The first Hyper-twister? This ride is awesome, one of the best hypers, (if not the best) I've been on. People over in north america are ignorant to this awesome AND SMOOTH TOGO ride.

Being in Japan, I can attest to the FACT that Fujiyama is sweet and smooth,but truth be told, who knows how long that will last? Then again, B&M coasters are so new that no one is sure how they will hold up over time. I would like to ride the Fujiyama in 10 years to see how is is doing.

One more thing...Fujiyama is really long, and that more than makes up for any weakness I could ever detect. I have ridden the B&M clone of Raptor called Orochi at Expoland in Osaka, and it is wonderful, but doesnt seem to pack the punch nor rival the awe that Fujiyama provides. I know that Orochi is not the EXACT ride that Raptor is. That would be like saying the Psyclone is just like the Cyclone, but no matter....It is NO Fujiyama. Beyond that, no ride can be bad that sits at the very base of Mt Fuji.

I wasn't calling Shockwave smooth by any stretch, it's just good, until after the loop. The ride itself looks good, without the train out there.

I find B&M stand-ups and even the inverts to be less than smooth. Especially the inverts. I'm slim, and wear glasses, a ride like Raptor is like a which way do I lean(?) experience, I find assosciating B&M with smoothness to be confusing, I mean it's nice to think that because somebody built something it's going to be smooth, but that's not how it ends up every time.

What was Tgo thinking when they but the types of restrainets on Viper and Manhatten exspress? those things are killer! i heard this once before somewhere and its true when you stand by the last inversion on viper At SfgAdv you hear half the train screaming ow ouch ouch ouch ow no lie. those things are painfull. dont get me wrong viper is a good ride and backs a punch for a small coaster but the type of restrinet needs to be changed as for manhatten exsprees im not sure since i never rode it but i seen it on tv a few times and looks preety rough.

Call me crazy, but I actually enjoyed my ride on Manhattan Express (and I should have since I paid $10 to ride it!)
