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.

Did anyone else read everything there. It was really disturbing how they would put a record over a ride beating the crap out of its riders. If you dont feel like reading everything the last little article will say everything.
Bolliger/Mabillard for President in '08 NOT Dinn/Summers
tigellinus said: Of course, *you* can make any coaster you want as deadly as you want...perfect example, ride Magnum at CP with no seatbelt and lap bar up (and no trims too) and talk about legitimate "ejector" airtime as you fly into Soak City (same with Voyage at HW).
Just like with Tony Montana, "it's your world"!!
And neither of them coasters you would come out of as long as you were seated correctly in the first place. Bout the only non looping coasters I've ridden that would cruelly eject you without restraints are the intamins and the Gerslauers
I'm surprised nobody's mentioned the Granddaddy of them all:
THE CRYSTAL BEACH CYCLONE!
I was watching the Documentary "America Screams" with a friend and my Mother took a peek to see what we were up to right when they showed the footage of that Coaster. She immediately shouted: "OH GOD! I RODE THAT THING!" She did not exoect our reply: "WHAT WAS IT LIKE!!!" :)

The previous articles state the ride design was originally altered to out-do Mean Streak. That said, and having never been on the Rattler, which has a more "out of control feeling" ride experience, and which is currently more painful? That is, for those who have ridden both.
Rattler sure has an interesting history, I wonder if it's still knocking heads as bad as when it opened. I watched POVs from this year and opening year yesterday and the ride looked crazy then, but it appeared that sections did not even line up correctly, oops.
