Wolverine Wildcat. Many of you who have ridden it in the past may believe that it's not that rough, but this year has been killer for this coaster. I think I rode it twice this season, and both times I had to leave early because of a splitting headache. Let's hope this beast gets some work done by CF this off season! ------------- Kara 403 Laps
The worst coaster that I have ridden with extreme head banging is Shockwave at Six Flags Great America. The restraints are painful when your head moves side to side. The loops have a lot of G-force. The boomerang hurts a lot, and my face on the ride taken by the on-ride photo section looks like I'm "out of it" (like I'm going to pass out).
Another head banging coaster is Iron Wolf at Six Flags Great America.

I like The Texas Giant but it always gives me a massive headache! I have finally learned after getting headache after headache from this woodie that I now take about 3 Advils while I am in line, that way it will work full force by the time I ride and exit!! It works Great!! Now I can ride The Giant headache free!!

I got a mild headache after riding The Legend at night ERT. The shear intensity of this ride is awesome. I rode it three times in pitch blackness. The last 2 times I rode it was sweet. The 2nd to last ride, our train over shot the brakes by at least 20 feet, and so they had to send us back through...it was sweet!

I've only got 3 headaches on roller coasters in my life... 1: The Windjammer---that is another level of intensity on a roller coaster (so glad they removed it) 2: Le Monstre at Le Ronde (Montreal)---not a very intense ride, but it got me one of the worse headaches ever... 3:Flight of Fear (PKI)---before the god blessed lap bars...
------------- In Mexico we also say..."God Bless America!

There is WAY too much complaining about "head banging" on this sight! Why is this? I mean, roller coasters are supposed to throw you around a little. Look back to the 1920's and some of the other old school woodies, I'm glad all of us were not around back then! Some of your super sensitive heads might have exploded for God's sake! Bottom line is if you don't like it, don't ride it.
With the technology they have today there is no excuse for that. The ride is supposed to be enjoyable and thrilling not ruin your whole day with a headache. For the price of admission rollercoasters need to be worked on more often.

Well said. Steel coaster, well, SLC are meant to have your head back, which I did on Serial Thriller and never got head banged. Woodies are supposed to be wild and do give rough rides. Deal with it. Remember, theese are rollercoasters, the body was never meant to be sent around a half mile track at 80+ mph, plain and simple.
