Now how about some of you enthusiasts dish about some of the most "comfy" coasters? It seems we always accentuate the negative about our favorite thrill machines. How about naming some coasters that were both exciting AND very comfortable?
Goliath is by far the smoothest rollercoaster you'll ever experience(I imagine Titan is the same smooth ride), and the lap restraint is comfy too (though interestingly similar to the Intamin hyper lap bar).
As far as seating goes, B&M inverts always seemed pretty comfortable, but X exceeds all others. The seats are similar to those of the B&M inverts, but implore a unique gate-like harness that is adjusted to fit, and a small cushy pillow-like area for your head. Ingenious!
Of course, the love seat on the arousel is usually where I head when I want to ride something comfortable.

I really like the invertigo trains, oddly enough. The B&M hyper trains scare the hell out of me, but they are comfortable. X-Flight's trains were almost too comfortable, in some senses...i really had no fear about falling out.
For me it is hands down Kraken that provided me with my smoothest ride. I have gone to Seaworld on two seperate occaisions roughly a year apart and both times Kraken delivered the smoothest ride I have ever had. If I had to go with a second place it would have to be Raging Bull which is also like riding on glass but a bit more intense of a ride.

For me, Stealth(with the WONDERFUL vest restraints...wow, a comfy vekoma!) and Medusa are the most "comfy" coasters. We can all agree that they are very exciting too. ------------- "There's no such thing as a mistake. There's what you do, and what you don't do."
The trains on the new Superman UF at SFOG are comfortable in both flying and loading positions, and the ride itself is smooth. I also like the B&M inverted trains and both inverts that I have ridden are smooth for the most part.
You would never believe this, but I swear to you that the Premier spaghetti bowl in Japan, Mad Cobra, has the most amazingly comfortable OTSRs you could imagine. The rests truly support your head, and keep you intact to boot. Wonderful stuff. -------------- Don't forget to sign the guestbook!
Nasai, those did look pretty sweet, but I still can't resist the gliding feeling of Delphis coaster. The trains even have these wind sound effect to add to the ride's enjoy went. Don't forget to check out those cushions. Best way to describe Delphis:The coaser:
