You should be able to get a good look at em in this photo... Unfortunately, it was already closed when I hit Great Adventure, so I can't comment on what they're like...
I'd Rather Be Riding Roller Coasters
I dont know why but that pic makes the ride look impressive.

Milwaukee Wisconsin, we bring you beer, brats and cheese. But don't be fooled, "Milwaukee truly is a special secret getaway that I will be sure to tell my friends about!" Erin Brockevich, not to mention that we are an hour from SFGAm........
SFGAMDie Hard - your number three is Manhattan Express? Yikes...there is SO MUCH headbanging on that coaster I thought I was at a Metallica concert.

Ok that just pisses me off. Granted I haven't ridden viper, I got to get this out. I AM SO SICK OF PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT HEADBANGING! geez! Before B&M all the coasters were like that, I think rides that are smooth beyond belief are boring as heck. A slight bump here and there gives the ride character. Don't take this too personally, I'm not just adressing this to you and this is strictly my opinion, but my number 3 coaster is the Manhatten Express and all I hear is complaints about how horrible those togo rides are and the truth is, if you just anticipate the next turn, it can really be fun! I'm sorry it just feels so good to get that off my chest. O by the way this message in this case was addressed to Jim Fisher sorry dude.

Out of the 60 odd coasters I've been on (I'm not in the Coasterbuzz Club so the list on this site isn't current) I have yet to experience headbanging.
I think some people just have weaker or more sensitive bodies then others so they notice things easier.

I just don't like coasters that leave me with a head ache for hours or that leave people bleeding when they get off. Yes, I have witnessed someone bleeding after getting off a severe head banger. I love wild woodies that throw you around, and I don't mind an occasional bruise. Looking at you track record, I don't see any coasters that I consider to be severe head bangers
As for Manhattan Express, I consider it to be a fairly mild head banger. Viper when I rode it was significantly worse, and it wan't much fun in exchange either. However, Viper doesn't make my list of the very worst. The FOFs with OTSRs were somewhat painful, but were fun in exchange for the pain. Robin: The Chiller with OTSRs was so brutal that you paid no attention to the ride. You just hurt. Robin with the new lap bars is a fantastic ride, especially at night. It is still wild and disorienting, but without the pain.
No not all coasters were like that before B&M. Most didn't have OTSRs, and most of those that did were not terrible head bangers. I personally find most Arrow loopers to not be too bad. A few coasters however were so poorly designed that they stood out from the pack. One was actually shut down for modifications due to the injuries it caused.
So has this turned into a "headbanging" thread? Everyones bodies are unique. Some people can take more than others.

Laslty, there are plenty of B&M's with headbanging. Just ride Talon.
The word "definitely" is definitely the most misspelled word on the buzz.
