Are roller coaster you ride getting boring?

Are the roller coasters that you ride again and again every time you visit your home park getting boring. Rides for me like Medusa,GASM and chiller are becoming sort of boring.

Every time I rode Phantom's Revenge, I never found it boring once. Same with pretty much every coaster I go on. I just never seem to get bored on roller coasters.

Steel coaster sometimes can become boring after repeated rides. It really depends on the coaster. I don't think I'll ever become bored with X or S:ROS(SFNE). I do have trouble hanging with B&Ms(except their inverts) after multiple rides, not an ounce of surprise remains.

That said, I could ride my favorite wooden coasters from now until doomsday, and I'm *anything* but a woody-snob.

I agree with the B&M point. After a while many many rides, its hard to find variety. And with coasters in general, I think there is some sort of burn out level at some point.

I felt that way during the off-season, I found myself saying, "Oh, Raging Bull is so boring now (after watching the POV a million times) but I know that'll change after getting my first ride of the summer-It's happened before, and it'll happen again. If you memorize the layout of a ride, then thinking about the ride won't do much, and you might even get bored of it, only physically riding it will change you're perspective.

The only coaster I got sick of was SUE ;) I rode it over and over, and it just lost its "spunk". But I still love it ;)

Now rides like Villain, BKF, Raptor, MF, and ROAR I cant get sick of :)

The Phoenix at Knoebel's Groves are so boring my friend and I ride it no hands, eyes closed, and standing up sometimes to make it more interesting. Its still good though. And right across the walkway you have the Whirlwind, the always walk on, always boring, always only a minute long Vekoma. HA

I never get tired of riding the same coasters over and over. It's a rush every time for me I've been riding Blue Streak at CP for 32 years, and its still as much fun now as it was my first time.

I hate to say it, but after about 40 rides in the pouring rain in one day at Millennium Mania last year, I was a little sick of it. But I still had lots of fun on my last few rides, just not as much as the first few rides.

There are some that do get boring to me. Then there are some that never get boring.

I know after riding X it makes just about every other coaster seem pointless.

I'm with Charles ~ Some get boring, some don't. My FAVORITES are the 1's I don't grow bored with, I can ride them endlessly and still want to ride more. Then there are the "ok" Coasters which after a couple times I am ready to move on...

roller coasters really don't get boring to me. even if its two different coasters with the same or similar layouts. Demon @ SFGA is one of their first and most simplistic coasters there. drop, two loops, *long* flat section, brakes, two corks, helix to brakes. boring, right? wrong. that ride always amuses me. even the long flat section (granted if it weren't in a tunnel and didn't have lights it might get boring) is interesting. I love Demon and I don't think I could ever get tired of it.

SuperJewels,

Hmmmm. I wonder what ride you could be referring to. I've found that glitter sometimes adds life to a coaster you are familiar with - maybe you should try that.

I think what a coaster needs is airtime, you can never go tired of that. Coasters that I've been on that don't have it, regardless of how many loops, how smooth or how many laterals it pulls, they just get very boring very fast.

If it has just one little spot of airtime, then it is able to draw me back a million times.

My favorite coaster happens to be Tower of Terror at Dreamworld, it may be 54 seconds and very little in the way of diversity, but those amazing 7 or so seconds that I'm not touching anything is absolutely breathtaking, nevermind the fact that I am 350ft up, if that same feeling were underground, then it'd still be my favorite.

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

When VF chokes up on WT's midcourse brakes, the ride is a ponderous, time-wasting bore. You're simply going up and down hills instead of catching Morgan's trademark floating air.

But when they're loose, it's as rerideable as anything out there. I've done dozens of laps in a row (well, a CF row--get out, walk around, come back) without losing interest at all.

Please note that WT is not Wicked Twister but Wild Thing, the bucktoothed, embarrassing cousin of all Morgan hypers. At least Morgan seems to think so--it's the only coaster they avoid mentioning on their Web page. Even CaroSeussel gets more attention. Yeesh.

I never get bored of riding a coaster. I enjoy them as much as I can because I know there is an off-season approaching where I won't be able to ride for 6 months. Maybe the coaster will get a little boring after riding it so many times in one day but I enjoy it all over again when I return.

I can't think of a good signature.
