Viper is the only coaster I've ever ridden that actually caused me more then just superficial pain. I've heard rumors that it has been modified. I'll certainly think twice before riding it again.

Hey Monkeyman...
Wasn't this exact same thread deleted yesterday?

Wasn't it also noted it was deleted because noone cares really about the "most, biggest, fastest, smoothest, roughest"??

Just a thought...
Not that I pay any attention, but I had some time last nite!!!!

I think the most rough is the Steel Phantom, becasue the first turn after the drop hurt my head a lot. Sorry but I think that Mad Cobras don't give any headbanging.

What is life with out coasters, geniuses, and/or SFA

I actually prefer rough rides, both wood and steel. Don't get me wrong, I love the smooth ones also. However, I would have to state my most unpleasant experience was on the Orient Express last summer. I was greatly looking forward to this ride as it greatly resembles one of my favorites, the Loch Ness Monster - still a classic. I had to ride both the front and back seats, my usual intent on all rides, and those two (2) rides were it. It hurt that bad.

Corkscrew, anywhere, hurts me. Excalibur @ VF is painful, and Magnum is very very rough.

Cedar Fair hates valleyfair... boohoo.

Do all you people really care what is the roughest?
Except for you Apollos Chariot and Dawg Byte, I can see you don't.
V2, Deja Vu... how can it be better? Add Viper! Oh, wait. It's already there! *** This post was edited by TrBiggar on 4/17/2001. ***

Seems this thread hasn't fallen to the bottom of the heap yet. I would judge by the number of responses the people don't mind discussing this topic.

Perhaps it's old or unappealing to many. But perhaps some folks were simply not part of earlier discussions?

And in regards to nobody caring about superlatives...I beg to differ. I read Almanacs and the Guiness Book of World Records just for that very reason. Park's pursue them for bragging rights. However, in terms of individual judgements, it's just kinda hard to pin superlatives down; everybody has their own ride list and experience with which to judge them.

Perhaps Monkeyman could have phrased it "what are SOME of the most ..." and it would have been more acceptable...but would the thread have turned out any different?

Anyhow...many coasters are rough. It'd be nice to develop rolling stock that would make up for imperfections in the design and/or assembly of the track...then perhaps we wouldn't even be having this discussion.

Decisions determine destiny; Destiny determines decisions.
