Thursday, June 29, 2000 5:58 PM
What's everyone's opinion on the most boring roller coaster you can think of?

In my opinion,the wooden Emmy goes to Mean Streak
The steel Emmy goes to Corkscrew

AND THE OSCAR GOES TO...... DISASTER TRANSPORT!!!!!

Disaster Transport is up there...but at least it is a toboggan (you can always blame it on that.)
Then there's my hometown GWAZI... looks like it should deliver so much more than it does! I watched em build it step by step (was doing design work at the park while it was constructed). I live 15 minutes away and find it a tremendous waste of wood. (Plus BGT has overbraked ALL their coasters! Give me brakeless IoA anyday!)
The NEW and NOT IMPROVED Mean Streak is downight yawn inducing now.
As for old steel loopers like PYTHON, I can't blame them, they were thrilling way back when! I try to look at them AS they were introduced...

I must disagree about GWAZI- I was on that thing for many rides this past February and in May and that thing COOKS big time! A great ride- how could you find this disapointing???

I'm going to have to go with the Mean Streak, even the Cedar Creek Mine Ride is better that it.

I know it's all subjective, but compared to the actual thrills that coasters like RAVEN, VILLAIN, THE BEAST, BOULDER DASH and others deliver, I find GWAZI (both sides) to be rather dull and uneventful. And believe me, I WISH it were more exciting to me! I have a pass to BGT and would ride it every day if I were thrilled by it. But, if you love it, may you get to ride it more (you can have my spot in line)! (BTW, I also find KRAKEN deadly dull.... I'm sure that will raise the ire of some KRAKEN fans as well...)

I think Raging Wolf BLAH's is the worst wood. The turns are wide and slow there's no airtime. I think it's just a rotten coaster. Coming in a close second has to be Hercules. The 157 ft. drop is braked to death like Mean Streak and after the turn over the lake the rest of the ride is dull.
As for steel the award goes to the Trailblazer at Hersheypark. It's the shortest mine train I've been. The only themeing is from the Dry Gulch Railroad when the train goes past the town. And as the 'blazer enters the brakes it is themed as the enterance to a mine. Just horrible.

Trail Blazer most defintely. What a waste of perfectly good steel. It is not even good as a kiddie coster, it is so boring.

. . .especially when you spend more time in line for Jr. Gemini then you do for Millenium Force. Happened to me on Tuesday. 1/2hour vs 10 minutes (plus 5 minutes for the TTR).

My votes:
Disaster Transport - I just don't get it.
Mean Streak - what an incredible dissapointment. Last year it was so much fun, this year they've got a brake AS YOU START DOWN THE FIRST HILL!
I don't really cout the mine trains 'cause that's what they're meant to be (although, Big Thunder at Disneyland is still fun).

I would have to say Colossus, but only because of the turn-arounds. The drops are good, at least in the back seat. The 3 turn-arounds are patheticaly slow and non eventful. If it was an out & back at that size, it would be cool.

Gotta ride 'em all!

Python @ Busch Tampa. What is that? Its absoultely pathetic! Literally 2 inversions then the station brakes. The drop on Oblivion is amazing but its a major disappointment after that! Looking back, they could have done so much more with this coaster!

Lamest Coaster is Hershey's "SooperDooperLooper" its trims and a loop, thats it. It sucks beyond imagination. (so does the Trailblazer and the Comet with all those trims)

I have a tough time choosing between Disaster Transport at CP and Dragon Fire at Paramount's Canada's Wonderland. It looks so awesome with it's big loops and corkscrew, but when you actually ride it, it's like "Why did I wait in line for this?"

We are the ones who wait in line for hours for a 45-second thrill, and consider it time well spent.
