Interestingly enough, one of viper's 'mega looper' sisters did it for me. Shockwave at SFGAm about 8 years ago when I was in 8th grade for our class trip. I rode front row and I had a splitting headache and backache for the rest of the day. It took me a bit to rid that thing again. And actually I rode every coaster this year at SFGAm with the exception of Shockwave. I've rode it again and not had a problem with it still banged. And well...when you have 3 B&Ms and lots of other fun coasters to ride at the park...there is no need to ride Shockwave and deal with that.
The first time I experienced headbanging was on the hang 'n' bang at astroland. When I got I thought my head was gonna explode all over the place and i had a bruise from the ride on the side of my fora week or two. ----------------- I have a photographic memory... I just forgot to put film in.
I've been banged around so many times over the years, I couldn't even tell you when I first experienced it. Probably on the Steel Phantom, though. ----------------- --Greg "Beat the rush, sign up for your post-Mean Streak MRI now..." My pageMy other pageAnd my coaster page
I think it was at the Outer Limits: Fligh of Fear...obviously when they had the shoulder restrains, however, I could stand that, but my first real headbanging, the one that gave me a 1000 days headache (well, not that much :) ) was the coaster I've hate the most...the super painfull machine...Windjammer at KBF...Thank God that's not there anymore... ------------- And the world is spinning, Spinning baby out of control I let the music (and the coasters) take me, Take me where my heart wants to go. Impressive Instant, Madonna.
Iron Dragon which knocked my head into the restraint once. I thought that was bad, my second coaster to give me headbanging was Serial Thriller which took me by suprise. Lets just say ever since then I take Advil to every park.

Right on! That's one of my favorite cds (or records:)) First headbanging I got was on Demon. It wasn't horrible migraine headbanging, but nevertheless, it was headbanging. ------------- -Defender of Shockwave
My first headbanging was on the Steel Phantom. It didn't bother me much, seeing as I rerode it several times that day. To me it just gave the ride a certain intensity that the others didn't have. Call me crazy, but it really didn't bother me at all. ----------------- Yet another coaster-craving yuppie
