Biggest headache?

Monday, April 9, 2001 2:55 AM
I don't usually suffer from headbanging on rides, but I hear alot about it!

Which ride has the most headbanging, or gave you the biggest headache?

The worst for me was Mantis, followed by any Vekoma Boomerang - headache for hours!

Oh, and then there's the SFMM's Flashback which boxers your ears!

Joker's Jinx, followed by the pair of Flight of Fears (although naturally that's been fixed).

After that, various Vekoma hang-n-bang's (SLC's), PKI's Vortex, and the Steel Phantom.

The Great Nor"easter,a Vekoma suspended looper in Wildwood NJ.Much more painful then Gasm or viper at SFgadv if you can believe it!Anyone been on it and can agree with me?

Not only did Steel Phantom give me my only coaster-induced headache, but it also made my wife cry.

Steel Phantom was bad. Iron Wolf at SFGAm is also a terrible headbanger.

Magnum gave me a terrible headache after I rode it. Coasters that go that fast should be smoother...the drops out of the tunnels are torture for me -- nothing like slamming down on a rock hard seat to get my head throbbing.

I have no clue what you guys are talking about. FOF has always been a smooth, headache-free coaster.

OL:FOF on the other hand...

Top 5 headbangers(for me):
1)Mad Cobras-Joker's Jinx,OL:FOF
2)A lot of Vekoma's(boomers, SLC's,...)
3)Steel Phantom
4)B&M Stand-Ups-Mantis, Chang, Iron Wolf
PKI-Kings Mills, Ohio-Wooden and Kiddie Coaster Capital of the World!

You are the Weakest Link! Goodbye!!!

T2 at Kentucky Kingdom still has my head ringing from yesterday.

Hands down Steel Phantom.

Only ever rode it three times. First time was in the front seat and was not that bad. Second time was in the last seat and was rough. Third time was in the next to last seat and I thought I was going to die. When it hit the inversions I do not remember very much except opening my eyes once and praying that the station was in sight. My wife swears she blacked out. Both of us had headaches for hours afterward and she had a neck ache for days.

After this was Python at Busch Gardens Tampa. It isn't a huge coaster, but it really jarred my head around.

1. Ninja at SFOG
2. Flight of Fear at PKI
3. Steel Phanton at Kennywood

My top head bangers:
1) Batman & Robin The Chiller, Robin Side
2) Jokers Jinx
3) FOF's before the restraint change
4) SLCs except Mind Eraser at SFA and T2 at SFKK which have much better padding.

I would have said Flight of Fear, but that was before I rode it on Sunday with the wonderful new headrests and lapbars!

Cedar Point's Corkscrew. Magnum didn't really give me a headache, but it did a number on my neck. The bottom of that first drop just snapped me around like you wouldn't believe.

It wasn't the smoothest ride in the world, no, but I didn't have as many problems on Steel Phantom as a lot of others did.

I didn't have a good time on Mantis, but that was probably due to the roughing up I got on Corkscrew before that.
