What are some of the most painful rides. It can be a coaster, a flat, or anything else.
Grizzly is the only coaster that I actually find scary. It always feels like it's about ready to collapse and it beats the hell out of you. Last time I rode it I hurt my back pretty good. I like to joke that the warning sign should say if you don't have any of these conditions, you will after riding it (with the exception of pregnancy). I always feel compelled to ride it when I go to the park but I really wish they would just tear it down.Grizzly - I don't get why people love this ride so much. 5'11" and 250, I shouldn't have bruises all over my legs and hips at the end of the ride. In fact if you gave me a choice of 3 notoriously rough/tough on legs rides I would go Skyrush most likely to ride, then Wildcat next likely, and Grizzly never again until they fix the trains.
Mind Eraser certainly lives up to its name.My top are
Mind eraser at SFA
Flying Cobras at Carowinds
Tempesto at BGW
Honorable mentions go to two KD ones thatbI enjoy a lot despite the pain.
I305 God those rappid changes just twist my spine no matter what.
Grizzly great ride but U feel like I rode a bull for the full count every time I ride it.
The Six Flags Superman clones never fail to give me a nasty headache through the pretzel loop. I just don't get that element. Maybe it's better at larger scale, but somehow I have yet to hit Tatsu or any other large B&M flyers.
What row were you in? If it was anything other than the front car then this tracks. Front row in particular is a blast with no roughness and all the intensity.Last time I rode Kingda Ka, it had a nasty vibration that made the entire experience really tough on the cranium. One and done for me, until further notice.
SFGAdv's copy of the B&M flyer clone really suffers for being built "on stilts" over a parking lot. I do think it would be a much better ride if they had put any effort at all into repeating the Georgia version's terrain. The close passes do add to the experience. The pretzel loop still hurts, though.I mean I don't dislike Superman Ultimate Flight, but it's not as good as Batwing. It's also not scary at all, unlike Batwing.
I think I was in the third or fourth row of Kingda Ka when I last rode. I do recall getting much better rides in the front row years ago, but then again I remember getting much better rides in MANY different rows of that ride years ago.What row were you in? If it was anything other than the front car then this tracks. Front row in particular is a blast with no roughness and all the intensity.
When we’re you last one it? It went through extensive refurbishing recently.And as for my answer, Wildcat at Lake Compounce is not only far worse than Hershey’s (also bad) installation of the same name, it’s the worst ride I’ve ever ridden. Nasty jackhammering and potholes throughout the ride. I’m lucky I’m young or else that thing would’ve hurt for days
