As far as Rolling thunder ..........anyone have a match?? That ride has been horrible for years now!
I thought, though, there were rumors a few years back that they'd possibly get PTC's, but I guess that's all it was, a rumor.
The second worst coaster ride I ever had was Magnum in 1.3. This was without a doubt the roughest and most painful ride imaginable. I swore I would never ride that coaster again, and to this day I have not.
The absolute worst coaster ride ever was on IB's Lost Coaster opening year when the woman across from me was carted off on a stretcher due to a concussion. I will never ride that again either.
MINE, strange story, on what was really a GOOD coaster, too. Frontier City's Wildcat...with a cracked rib I had courtesy of UltraTwister. I was in agony, but I got the *available* credits at Frontier City, even the Wild Kitty! Didn't get Diamond Back, the Arrow shuttle loop, which opened as we left the parking lot...in a rush to get to Bell's (which was closed, and I was almost thankful, I was in THAT much pain).
Note to self: CALL before leaving a park to get to another park....OTOH, we were quite DONE with the staff at Frontier City...which had acquired its own moniker after just an hour or so... ;)

The ride was always a little bumpy, but for some reason this time around was extremely bad. It felt like the train was falling apart. After the torture I slowly went to the nearest bench, and waited for the neck pains to cease.
Ahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...

Heh, you guys should ride Timber Wolf in its current condition. I don't think there has been or ever will be a coaster that shuffles more. It's so bad it's funny. :)
You know I just rode TW last weekend and I think that it's that fun kind of rough. Have you ridden Outlaw yet this season? Thing is turning into a total piece of [crap]!
Psucklone is ranked right above SOB in my 2005 ballot for Mitch's poll. Together with PGA's Grizzly, Wild Adventure's Cheetah, and SFGAdv's Rolling Thunder they make up my lowest-ranked woodies [#87-$91].
Just noting that NO ONE has mentioned Psucklone thus far...truly hard for me to believe.
One reason for not picking Psyclone is it's such an easy target at this point, so is PGA's Grizzly. We all know their horrible, and most of us that know better avoid them anyway.
Rather, I subscribe to the old Roger Ebert/Gene Siskel view that I don't go after the easy targets that I haven't ridden in years anyway, but rather the ones that *should* be great, were designed to be great, but still manage to fail misirably.
Rides like Hurricane (CCI) and Hypersonic (S&S) are two of my least favorite coasters ever. But they should have been great!
Worst Steel- Manhattan Express/Iron Wolf
Worst Wood- SOB.....hands down.
I still remember exactly where the fun ended, right as we entered R's R queue, her nose started bleeding.
Worst Wood - tie between Rotting Lumber (Rolling Thunder) and Hurler (PKD)
...then again, this past Tuesday I was at Hersheypark and got one of my worst rides ever on Wildcat...that thing hurt brutally bad, I had whiplash/neck pains after I got off of that.... :(
Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger
2022 Trips: WDW, Sea World San Diego & Orlando, CP, KI, BGW, Bay Beach, Canobie Lake, Universal Orlando
(with a "Dishonorable Mention" going to Steel Phantom)
Worst steel: Boomerang @ SFFT in the front seat. On both drops my head got banged pretty hard against the back of the seat, and when going through the cobra roll my head was being beaten by the OSTR. This ride isn't too bad in the middle and back.
