Your all-time worst coaster ride?

Tuesday, July 18, 2006 5:03 PM
^^ You know to this day that remains the only coaster on which I've ridden that I wanted to get off BEFORE the first drop. I mean, the LIFT HILL is rough... how do you DO that anyway? O.o

Jason Hammond's avatar Although I just had a very poor experience on the Hurricane at Myrtle Beach Pavilion, I would have to say that my worst coaster ride would have to have been on the Rattler at Fiesta Texas.

Psucklone definately takes #1 on my list- it was definite torture on my back. I've never experienced that much pain on a coaster before. My question is why can't these companies make all their woodies good? It seems to me that about half the woodies I have ridden should be burned to the ground, while the other half are either spectacular, "having the time of my life" rides, or atlest somewhat descent. Do the trains on a wooden rollercoaster have a lot to do with the ride experience?
I'm not too familiar with the wooden coaster companies- I basically know GCI and CCI. With steel it's pretty easy for me to get a basic idea if the ride will be enjoyable or not before I ride it based on the designer. Vekoma- usually I've already ridden that coaster at 6 other parks and I'll know to focus on not banging my head the whole time while riding, Arrow- there will be some headbanging, but for the most part I enjoy their rides, Intamin- a very good chance that it won't let me down, but it may be broken down, B&M- 95% chance that I will enjoy the ride. Is it the same for wooden coaster companies?

Yep,

I felt it too. The track seemed to be very mushy under the weight of the train going up that lift. I could see the cars ahead of me swagger and rock as the wood gave way. I did not feel safe at that point. I guess that was not one of the places they supposedly retracked this season.

Put that dog to sleep.


Thanks for another great season, VF!

I think SOB is smooth as glass compared to Rattler at SFFT.

Iron Wolf...worst thing ever. In fact the only coaster that I refuse to ride again. Ripped a gash in my ear and I still have the scar from it.

Mine would probably be the first time on the Thunderhawk at Dorney Park. That ride has 2 huge jolts and the first time I went on it I thought I was going to die. But now I know the ride, and it is not that bad.

^The one at EG beats you to a pulp...

Has anyone ridden Mamba this season? I had an unusually rough ride on it the other day.

Austin I rode Mamba about 3 weeks ago, and while not the smoothest steel, I didn't think it was rough...just the second half was boring.

Worst: SOB

The Mamba is an exact replica of Steel Force at Dorney right? Sorry to go off subject but I was just wondering.

I can only think of two minorly rough spots on Mamba,track work was done in both places. One at the bottom of the first drop where there is a small bump after a welding job, and inbetween the end of the turnaround helix and the midcourse breaks can be jerky.

WOF has had a bad habbit with Mamba's trim brakes the past few seasons. Ride supervisors just want to over exercise their authority and order the rides trims to be on.

The best time to ride Mamba is at night when it's running at its fastest.

On Steel Eel in Sea World, those trims need to be on. Even with them on, you take the return hils surprisingly fast and gives you great ejector airtime. I think Steel Eel is my favorite Morgan.

Isn't that something like Wild Thing at VF? But smaller.
