What is your guilty Pleasure?

Friday, January 3, 2003 1:54 PM
I was wondering what everyone's Guilty Pleaure roller coaster is, one that is absolutely hated by everyone but you have taken a liking to. Mine is Psyclone at SFMM, The only reason is the first drop and the diving in and out of all the wood, The first drop doens' havbe any trims so it is quite a bit of fun, it is insane lateral jolts (What everyone calls rough) where you are thrown against the side really hard for a second. These are tollerable if you brace yourself. It isn't in the CCI league or anything but I thought it wasn't to bad. I think SFMM needs to "Re work" their wooden coasters, this one all that needs to be done is lower some of the hill and make the surns a bit better, remove the trims and get some nice PTC trains instead of thos klunky looking things. The gauge is probably differnt though because those are some very hearty trains and PTC's are not.

Hmmmmm....Shockwave(SFGA), if it ever gets back up again. And guys, please don't flame with the Shock/Wave thing here;). But, yes, Shockwave is it for me, since it has the most inversions on my Track Record

Ever since adopting my "Defensive Riding Posture" I enjoy plenty of rides that most people think are "too rough." I really enjoy the Arrow loopers and Vekoma loopers with the OTSR's much more than before.

Viper at SFMM especially, I rode it 10 times in a row on more than one occasion and loved every minute of it.

Mean Streak. I cant believe so many people dislike that coaster. It's everything a wooden coaster should be!! It's long, has some good drops, has some good twists and turns, and is a little rough so that it feels rickety, just like a wooden coaster should be!!

oblivion at alton towers. most people say that after 2 or 3 rides that it turns a little boring. i managed to get in 18 rides in one day last summer and the 18th was just as good as the 1st!

I would have to say The Mad Mouse at J's Amusement Park. Everyone seems to call it a piece of rusted crap but I find it to be pretty intense. No trims and the cars fit pretty loose on the track, then with the airtime- perfection!

Edit: thought some of you might not know why someone would call it a rusted piece of crap, well this explains it: http://community.webshots.com/photo/51836446/51838194AsJvba

I don't know what it is, but I'm in love with PGA's Psycho Mouse. It's a silly little overbraked Arrow mouse, and my neice and I can't get enough of it. I've on several mice all over the US, yet this one sticks with me.

Magnum lot's of people say this ride is rough, but I liked it! It's got good hills and great airtime.

I would have to say Shockwave as well. Even though I pretty much hated that ride when I was with someone at the park, when I went there alone it was awesome. (I guess none of my friends can really take that thing over and over and over again).

Mad Mouse hasn't been forgotten. They got a new chain and did some touch up work on the sign which is pretty noticable in that picture I put in my original post.

To give you an idea of what kind of park J's is, they usually close the arcade early so the family can relax a watch TV.

Mine would be Wolverine Wildcat at Michigans Adventure. This was the first roller coaster I rode, and I didn't even know roller coaster existed before that day. I was scared straight, and wouldn't ride another coaster untill I went to SFGAm and rode everything there the year viper opened.

Maybe they should have spent the money for the sign on the track....I think that needs it more....
