I think it is way too soon to put TTD or Ka in here. They have some reliability issues to sort out, but the rides themselves are impressive (when they work).
Mean Streak isn't "notorious" so much as it is simply not as much fun to ride as it is to look at.
SOB, with the recent incident, is probably on the "notorious" list, as is pretty much ANY coaster that has ever had a significant accident.(injuries/deaths)
Drachen Fire is a good one because of the ongoing controvery about it. It was the longest-running SBNO source of gossip I can remember in a major modern park. *** Edited 7/19/2006 2:08:30 PM UTC by brunus76***
I dont know how notorious it is, but a few years back my wife,my daughter and I rode the Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and enjoyed it very much. About 3 days after getting home, we were watching a show on The Discovery Channel about rollercoasters and it was listed as one of the Worlds Top Ten most Dangerous Roller Coasters.And come to think of it, after a train came down the last hill,you could actually see the track swaying back and forth.
Skatewithnomercy said: how about steel dragon 2000 it only worked for what like 3 years and is now SBNO
But it was a minor accident with minor injuries that could have been fixed and running in a week. It's only closed due to Japanese superstition. But, I guess you're right...it still could be notorious for that very reason.
Imagine having a busted AC on your car and being scared of its safety not driving it for years...that's about it's situation!
