You see, my girlfriend is pretty small and tends to come out rather bruised from rough coasters. I really wouldn't want to drag her all the way to cincinnati during our vacation to basically get beat up. Do you guys think she would have much of a problem?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated....and possibly keep me out of the dog house....
I really don't think either are that much worse than Magnum.... *** Edited 7/23/2007 6:11:32 PM UTC by tigellinus***
And I am your Irish uncle.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Of course they have good days and bad days, and it can vary a lot from seat to seat. The Beast is pretty smooth in the front seat. Son of Beast is smoother than it was a few years ago, but IMO it's more rough than last year between when it was re-tracked and before it had that unfortunate accident. (I'm really tiny so the restraints didn't bother me at all)
I'm sure The Beast will be fine is you stick towards the front. I haven't had a chance to ride Son of Beast towards the front this year. The back car was pretty bad when I rode it
Cedar Fair shoulda TAERED IT DOWN! ;)
Stick to the back for the better ride...
Chuck, you are completely right. As long as you don't ride over the axle on Beast you will have a much smoother ride. The front isn't horrible but it does produce a nice foot thumping effect right before the second lift and going through the helix.
As for SOB I haven't had a chance to ride it with the new trains but having been on G-trains before, stick to the front seat of any car and it will be a bit smoother.
Paddle Faster! I hear banjo music.
For hype, they could even sell small medical/life insurance policies in a booth by the ride.

They could start offering same-day dry cleaning, car repairs, doctor visits!?! Kind of like a southern California carwash...
Seriously, you have no idea what a time saver (and profit center!!) CF parks could be if I could go to CP, get my dry cleaning done, get my brakes replaced, AND get a cavity filled all while getting to ride Maverick and MF at the same time and in the same place!
Heck, if they had a grocery store there, I could get that knocked out as well! (maybe minus perishables) But the possibilities are endless!! *** Edited 7/24/2007 4:09:26 PM UTC by tigellinus***
Beast on the other hand, i rode in the front second seat and was by far amazed at the ride. Later on the same day went in the middle of the train, and got beaten severely, and the lapbar actually went further down on me, and locked in place so i had no room. So it definately beats the crap outta ya and keeps on doing it. The beast in no way shape or form is close to being smooth.
SOB was a step up last year than it had been in years past. I never got to ride it this year, but it still probably has its rough moments. You cant expect anything that big to be that smooth.
