Yes, I have ridden these multiple times. They are fine, and yet sometimes sickening just depending on how you do the layout. Its a fun thing to ride. But once you ride it over and over it gets boring.
Plus, you really dont get the feeling that you are actually dropping. Yes, it does angle you down when your going down, but you still dont get quite the sensation you would on a real ride.
Its really not worth that much money and wouldnt be something you would want to have. It gets boring fast.

I've ridden it once and it got kinda boring even during the ride. We designed it with nonstop flips and barrel rolls, but it got old quickly. It was hard to follow the action on the screen, too, and it's really claustrophobic. And the one I rode (Gameworks) smelled like puke.

Yeah I rode the one at Gameworks at Easton, they are ok..........I kind of got nauseous a bit during the end of the ride and it is really small inside (claustrophobic's worst nightmare).
Good Times!! Good Times!!

I rode the one at gameworks and it smelled like piss. It was okay. But nothing compared to a rollercoaster. Simulators will never be better than the real thing.

I wonder if these are the same things they have at the Disney Quests, or should I say HAD, since all but the one in downtown disney went bankrupt or shut down or something like that....It was pretty fun from what I remember...

I rode one at the Carnegie Science Center. The options where to design and ride your own coaster or ride the Steel Phantom. I did both, and had a great time.

I rode one in the arcade of the MGM Grande Las Vegas and I honestly thought it was great. Being an airtime whore that is strange seeing as that is not recreated in the ride. However it could maneuver vertical loops and barrel rolls and I thought it was a blast. It was $5 but definately worth the money IMO.
Last year this week changed my life forever. Please remember suicide is not a solution!

PRRules, I rode that too, The Steel Phantom is a nice one, because its actually like a real ride, not all make believe, i like the fans and air ducts blowing air at you in some of the parts where there would be on the real thing...

I rode one and we just kept doing backflips and straight down kind of things but you can make a nice coaster with one.

I have also been on one. I found there is a lot of hanging into your restraint. I thought it was a pretty fun ride.

I went on one at the now defunct Funscape FEC (Cicero, NY). Whenever you'd invert (or pretty much anything else) you would hang and/or float into the harness. It was fun.
