Scareiest Part of a Coaster

What do you think is the Scareiest Part of a Coaster? I'm not scared of any part of a coaster but if I was, I would say the Top-Haton Mr. Frezze@SFSL. I always think that I'm going to fall out.

I would say the helix on Nitro because I always grey out.

It;s fun and scary. The final helixes on the Beast! I swear that someday the train will fall apart. (I hope not though)

The scariest has to be the end. Thats when you think to yourself, damn, I have to wait 1-2 hours to ride this again.

.. yes my homepark has an average 1 hour wait per coaster

The scariest and usually the best is the first drop. Right as we crest I get a little scared.

Also PTC trains. For some reasonI always get stuck in them. The lap bar won't click open.

The Big Dipper at SFWoa, last car. I swear I was gonna fly out, but I kept my hands up anyway. :-)

PS- how do you make the smiley faces?

I agree with Antuan, except for on SoB. Multiple runs on that in succession are kinda like the old FoF....(only coaster with laps that ever made me feel "punch-drunk")

Steve, take the - out and you'll get smileys.

I think it's when my grandma accidentally unbuckles the seat belt on Cyclops. You know, the seat belt is the main restraint on it, you can easily slip past the buzz bar!

If it's not rider-error, probably the entrance to Shockwave's (SFGAm) MCBR. It's painful!

Probably SOB @ night. That has to be the scariest thing to ride it at night, and through Vortex's corkscrews...everytime you go threw it feels like your going to fly out of it from upside down cause it goes so slow.

The only part of any ride when I feel "unsafe" is on V2 (or S:UE) when you're sitting in the front row, and you go up the front spiral the second time and you come very close to the top, it allways makes me hold on. Only ride that ever does that to me.

I have to say that unexpected ejector airtime is the most and probably only scary moment of a coaster.

I knew basically nothing about Riverside Cyclone before I rode, Just got a tip to ride the BACK SEAT while some internet buddies opted for a seat further up.

. Well Holy S*** I thought we were gonners on that first drop and then 3 more times on the ride! :) We rode it again in none other than the backseat and would have ridden many times if it had not been for 1 train op :(

Legend, That first part of the Double Up is a slow rise comming off the Dive turn and dosn't look like much, WOO WHOO! Every seat in the train gets almost standup float air! The first time it scared me but it is a moment even though I know its there now I live for!

Another Kinda scary moment to me was Shivering Timbers Trick Track, I've ridden about 5 coasters with trick track and this is the only one that works. It tilts you left and then kinda tilts you right toward the structure of the outbound hill! :)

Chuck, who hears THE BOSS has a terrifying moment and must get out there :)

Americana is opening in 2002 and needs your support as many company picnics are already schedualed for someplace else, Indivdual visits are very improtant to the parks survival.

Halfway up the main hill of a coaster. Thats when I start realizing how far up I am and also that we're only halfway there. That's usually when the person next to me either (a) starts whining about being scared or (b) starts exclaiming about all the things below us looking so small. That's when I start analyzing the machinery of the coaster and what I'm sitting on, and what's pulling me up. I think 'why the heck am I up here?'

The hold at the top of Oblivion, all your weight on the shoulder harness, looking down into that hole into which the coaster is never ever going to fit. The guy on each end is going to get ripped clean off and left behind. Then you drop. Thats scary....
