Sky Rush has the most negative g's per centimeter of thigh (COT).

Someone finds a fifteen year old thread worthy enough to actually create a brand new account simply to make a reply.

I would have to guess that parks do not want those numbers published as some guests might perceive that the ride would be unsafe. Before they open new rides, they use accelerometers (sp?) to record forces throughout the ride. Years ago during a film shoot at CP, they had planned on having riders wear heartrate monitors, but the park chose not to as they thought that some might think the rides are too intense. Like I said, I am just guessing that is why we don't know those numbers.

I would have never noticed the 15 year thread. But I wondered why when reading the first bits that no one mentioned skyrush or sv. It all makes sense now.

Basically every kiddie coaster (no, Wacky Taxi & Roar-O-Saurus doesn't count) has low G's. Kids' stomachs are usually no match for the big boys like...say Goliath of SFOG?

Actually that’s not true. Research has suggested that children are more tolerant of G force levels than adults. Ride designs, however, do not reflect that.

That said...if you are truly looking for a ride that has the lowest Gz force, you’re actually looking for the one that goes the most negative, meaning a really aggressive ride of the sort that is trying to eject its riders.

the drop after the first turnaround on the Coney Island Cyclone might be pretty high?

El Toro is like, negative 2 G's. Why I chose to strap myself in on that while I was still a GP is unknown, even to me.

You'd only think that if you're doing mental gymnastics. GP don't even KNOW G-forces. I get the heartrate monitor thing, but even then, I wouldn't think it'd be too intense. It's like the "halfway corrected" removal from The Smiler, NO ONE would think that related to the crash except Alton themselves. I doubt even clickbait channels like TheRichest would think the amount of G's would equal the ride being unsafe. The GPs just think they're coming out of their seats, and scummy clickbait channels use that to tie into major coaster accidents (SERIOUSLY. There's a video of a couple riding the New Texas Giant and claiming they came out of their seat days before the accident. WTF.)

Any correcting of the GP has to be accompanied with a flashing of the ACE card. You better have the cred if you want to be taken seriously.

After this past weekend I have to say that Storm Chaser at KK has the highest negative g's I've ever felt.

The 2nd hill, and several of the ending hills have launch-level forces out of your seat to the point where I had to hold on after a few rides to avoid bruising. Granted this was a warm day with a little bit of rain, so the ride was hauling.
