Best Head Chopper Effect

Saturday, March 30, 2002 7:47 AM
What coaster do you think has or will have the best head chopper effect? I think the Ninja at SFSL. Here is why. http://www.casabrian.com/images/medium/2001/longtrip/01-SFStL/ninja/CRW_5333_med.jpg

Well...I don't know if this topic will last, but I will give it my opinion....:) For me, it's a tie. White Cyclone with its too close for comfort choppers, and Tremors first drop into that super tight tunnel. White Cyclone's choppers are downright close, and I would pretty much guarantee some stumps if you held your hands up. Tremors' tunnels just "look" dangerous, as I have made the journey safe and sound. WC is a different story. I don't know if there are international build laws that require height restrictions in regards to headchoppers, but the ones on WC are pretty darn scary. Just remember that the parks aren't responsible because the signs all blatantly tell you to keep your hands in the trains.

These types of topics should stay open,, UNLESS an agruement breaks out and runs on and on resulting in big time bandwith.

I think the best head chopper effect is the close collision with the Lug Flume tunnel on Stealth, I don't know if that qauifies, if not its an awfuly good "Body choper"!!

So what is better? SFMM or CP? I don't care! They both have 29 coasters between them that they build so we can have a good time!

Ninja is disqualified because your head is being ground to pulp while going through that head chopper... it hurts so much you can't even see it coming.

Here are all of the Ninja's Head Chopper effects in the same picture. http://www.casabrian.com/images/medium/2001/longtrip/01-SFStL/ninja/CRW_5326_med.jpg

So that leaves Ninja with 3 head choppers

That tunnel on Goliath lows way to small for anything looking down the first drop. You either saying"Inot going to survive this drop","Lord.please down let us crash," or "Dang, I'm gonna get my head chopped of in that tunnel."

With the mix of its compact twisted layout, massive first drop, tight location, and very decieving tunnel, Goliath has the best "I'm gonna' die" drop.

Big G at SFMM comes to mind for a "first drop chop", and KG's Twister for quantity of headchoppers. The best single event of chopping I can recall is KW's Steel Phantom (ok PR, but haven't gotten back, yet).

But I would have to "lose my head" so to speak, if I left out HW's brand new "Legend's Leapin' Lopper" (TM).

How about the tunnel on PKD's Grizzly,it comes right off the 3rd drop which is full of some major airtime,not to mention the effect it has because it appear's as if the train is not going to fit through the tunnel as you approach it.

When the train has stopped at the edge of Oblivion you may wonder if the car will fit in that small, deep hole, and if you sit at the very end of the car, like what i did, you really hopes it does lol. ;)

Going under the station on Hercules and the tunnel on Steel Force is pretty cool.

Well, the one that still gets me the most to this day, is the headchopper after the second fan turn on Gemini.........coming into the second dip gets me ducking everytime.

Goliath has some pretty good hand choppers.......but none got me as true head choppers..

FoF also has some great head choppers, but they're a bit tough to see in the dark..... I would love to ride that coaster with the lights on.

Ninja at SFSTL has head choppers???? I've ridden this coaster at least 100 times and NEVER noticed what I call a Head chopper. Viper at SFGAM has awsome air time and choppers galore. Maybe not the best, but very convincing! We strongly agree with Goliaths' first drop into the tunnel, and lets not forget Desparado (the bra buster! (long story)).

Ghostrider is one big headchopper. :)

But the only headchopper to seriously make me duck is on Phantom's Revenge when flying through the structure of the Thunderbolt.

Gemini is full of headchoppers and when you get lifted out of your seat you swear your going to get decapitated by one of the many beams of Gemini!

Yeah, Gemini definitely gives some great head choppers. I swear that the first drop's steel gurders overhead look like they will take my hands off!

Jokers Jinx, Outerlimits, they have great head chopper effects, the small space, the compacted track, constantly turning and high speeds, makes the rider delirious. OutLimits, with the dim lights, even though you know your safe, you still feel that to can just band against something seeing the dark polls fly by constantly.
