Well....we've talked about most painful coasters..

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?

I could fall asleep on X-flight going up the chain lift lying down, except for all the noise the chain makes. Very comfortable seats on that ride

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.

X's trains are very comfortable. It has the squishiest headrests that I have ever felt. And when those trains recline in the station, it feels like you could just relax and read the morning paper. :)

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.

Nitro is the most comfortable coaster.

I would have to say Kraken. Because I have actually dozed off on the lift after a long day of riding.

Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull. I am sure Nitro is just as comfy but I won't find out 'til August!

X is soooooooooooooo com-for-ta-ble! It's truly like having a little pillow behind you head. I have to agree with Loaded G about how great those harnesses are. BUT NOTHING BEATS PYSCLONE! ;)

I would have to agree with Kick the Sky. Kraken is by far the smoothest coaster I've ever been on. Second place would go to Nitro.

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.

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:
