I am planning on going to CLP this weekend and I was wondering if the refirbished trains make the ride better on the body than the NAD trains did. I took a hell of a beating on the NAD trains, i was wonder if the new-old trains made the ride feel better? Thanks!

I think the old PTC train is a better ride, but I honestly haven't rode in the NAD ones since the eary 90's, but if you don't want a beating dont sit in the very last seat the second dip can be kinda rough, I swear the downforce or g's are more than any newer coaster, also dont sit by yourself you tend to get bashed around a bit more that way. Its also been said that the NAD trains which were basically bought out of a cataloge sometime in the 60's so they weren't designed for the ride at all, and they are also suposedly about 100lbs heavier per car, On my last visit I was talking to some ACE members inline and also with an off duty ride op, who said told me that but I don't really thing the CLP Blue Streak was or is the painful kind of bashing like other coasters that can bruise you and leave you with a back ache and head ache for a few days. Definatly ride it at night though, you can see anything at all on the middle of the ride in the woods.

Just don't sit directly over the wheels in any given car. It's not unbearable in any seat but deffinately give a much better ride that way.

Could be that the PTC cars flex more than the NAD ones do.

Maybe, my last ride the last time I was there I was in the front seat of the lat car and I could feel it really flex, dont know if there supposed to flex a lot but it did, also they seem be made mostly of wood.
