most painful rollercoaster

Friday, June 1, 2001 3:47 PM
what is the most painful rollercoaster you have ever ridden? for me it has to be shockwave at sfgam, that ride gives me the biggest headache, it might actually be a great ride if it didnt inflict so much torture on my head.

For me it was Steel Phantom at Kennywood, had a nasty headache after that, and Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake Park, my ankle hit the inside of the train while going thru a curve, had a hard time walking after that.......

Magnum kicked my butt last season. Still my favorite coaster (After the Force of the Millennium).

Iron Wolf is the worst I have ever been on. I wish it wasn't so painful because it is a historically important coaster.

Flashback no doubt what so ever. It is so ruff I almost passed out.

If you haven't noticed from other postings, they have replaced the head padding on Iron Wolf.

It is a lot more comfortable now. Have you ridden it this year yet ?

If only they could do something about Shockwave. I really love that ride, but it really is getting to the point where I can only ride it once or twice in a day due to the head banging.

I hope you mean the Steel Phantom. Not Phantom's Revenge. But if you did, no harm done.

Most painful ride I've ridden is Magnum last season. It felt like I was riding on jagged overrated can you get.

At sfwoa the serial thriller it just banged my head around the lapbar the whole time it gave me such a bad headache.

PKI son of beast
PKI Vortex
PKI flight of fear
PKD shockwave

If u ask me it's just the paramount rides , but the original beast has got to be my all time favorite woodie, so far

Before yesterday, I would have said the Canobie Corkscrew, but after taking two spins on SFNE's Mind Eraser, it gets my vote. This is one roller coaster that hasn't aged well.

Mine is Steel Phantom, that first drop killed me.

If that hurt I'd hate to see what the rest of the ride did to you, as Phantom's Revenge keeps the same first drop. Anyway, Mean Streak has to be the most painful coaster that I've been on.

Live to have FUN!

1)Mean Streak
4)CP Corkscrew
5)Magnum '00

Everything above was my opinion.If you disagree,please respond in an intelligent fashion.But before you post,I warn you that some people say I'm just too smart to understand. Please take that into consideration.

Shockwave at SFGram
I like rough rides but not this rough
Iron Wolf (even with the new padding)
Serial Thriller (the put the so-called padding to close to your head your ears get boxed)

Magnum (last year) and T2!! Both are fun but just a little on the painful side!

Friday, June 1, 2001 8:37 PM
Only one person has said Windjammer... Well it gets my vote!

"Clear, Dispatch"

my vote goes to 2 PKI coasters. the original flight of fear with the horsecollar restraints and son of beast. i sure hope their next coaster is better

I am a roller coaster FIEND!
