Wooden Steel

Friday, March 7, 2003 10:54 PM
What steel coasters do you all know of that are so rough you feel like you're on a wooden coaster... or even worse? I know the old Jokers Revenge(oops I mean *Jester*), and the Diamondback at FC throw you around pretty good. Also the Loch Ness Monster at BGW.

The first highly banked turn of SilverStar (240ft. B&M hyper) is pretty rough.
It's very tight, yet you fly trough it at 80 mph.

It really is like a woodie during that turn. Other coasters can be rough (headbanging) too, but SilverStar's first turn could have been a woodie.

Maybe you missed the part about keeping the signature at 3 lines or less, because yours is 12. Also, this topic is going to do nothing but turn into an "Arrow bashfest."

Sorry about the previous signature, I was just listening to a radio commentary on the war. It doesn't have to be an arrow bashfest. I think some vekomas are horrible.

I don't think the point is so much that it will be a bashfest of a specific company but an uninteresting bashfest in general.

I mean, the topic essentially boils down to, "What coasters do you think are rough?" unless you're specifically referring to some aspect of wood coasters that isn't synonymous with rough.

OK OK! Geeze.. so I just wanted to start a discussion and hear people's opinions! Gosh it's "Bash one sided day". ::Crawls into fetal position and cries::

Out with the negative, in with the answers, people. ;)

I've never been on a steel coaster that felt wooden.

Hey, Flashback @ SFMM isn't an Arrow or Vekoma, and it hurts like a kick in the teeth :)

Revolution @ SFMM always jars me around more than a woodie (even more so than Psyclone)... maybe I ride it incorrectly, but it always rides horribly when I'm on it.
