@warfelg You're the first person I've ever heard to complain of a Kingda Ka rollback. I've tried so hard and haven't gotten a single 1!

Grizzly is beautiful the way it is. It's rough, it's loud, it's crazy... It's perfect! Front row isn't all that rough, but you aren't a true fan if you don't ride back row 😉 Back row night rides!!!!

I don’t mind 1 rollback. But they closed off the line to rides because of the wind yet the ride op kept trying to launch us anyways. It was annoying. FWIW the rollback is scary as sin.

Here’s my issue with Grizzly: I’m 6’ 235. Not a huge guy. I barely fit. Add in how aggressive it is and I can’t get off that ride without some sort of bruise or bump on the thigh area because of the lap bar or divider. I say either upgrade the trains or get better retracking work.

Honestly I would love them to remove the seat divider, I'm not big on any sense of the word, but I've got hips and they are a tight squeeze in those seats. Seeing people bigger than me fit in the chair is amazing.

I’ve never had any issues with Grizzly and I’ve ridden it every year since it opened. Some years have been worse than others but having ridden coasters all over the planet, I’ve been on ones so violent they make Grizzly, even at its worst, ride like a B&M hyper.

That said I can see how rider’s sizes (like @warfelg pointed out) can factor into whether your ride is comfortable or not. The Grizzly trains (and PTCs in general) are boxey and can be tight-fitting for larger riders. I personally hate PTCs because IMO they run like shit but their trains need a more ergonomic design. No one should come off any ride bruised regardless of how rough or violent it is.
