If you would count "grey-outs", which I believe is a weaker version of a black out, then I have had a couple of them on Nitro.
08-25-2001, 01:10 AM
I never haveone not even gray outs
08-25-2001, 03:19 AM
The closest I have come to a black out was a VERY VERY dark grey out ;), that which I had experienced in the helix finale on Goliath. 4.5 Gs worth of horizontal seat plastering. Oh MAMA!

I greyed out on GASM at SFGadv going into the third loop and I nearly blacked out when my head was jarred against the shoulder restraint going into the first corkscrew. That coaster needs a little help...and people say Drachen Fire was rough...my God, DF was nowhere like this coaster...that was a horrid experience for me.
No other coaster has ever done that to me, but the height on drop towers gets me incredibly woozy.

i almost did on viper at SFOG
08-25-2001, 12:46 PM
umm my sight got blured on laser all i did was blink and was back i don't know if that counts as greying out

The ONLY one that makes me "grey out" but not black out is Shockwave SFGAm, during the 2nd or 3rd loop, but it only happens for half a second
08-25-2001, 05:12 PM
i've gotten tunnel vision on goliath, thats freaky.
08-25-2001, 07:58 PM
By saying that you black out, does that mean like passing out, or what???
08-25-2001, 11:35 PM
I had it happen once on Shockwave @ SFGam and once on Millenium Force @ CP.

Grayed out on the Nitro helix and through the first loop on B:TR for some odd reason.
Medusa, please do try to be more civil. We can't all have the G-force tolerance that you claim to have... also, ride a few more before you say you "never will."
08-26-2001, 09:20 AM
i never had but the closest i came was the helix on nitro
08-26-2001, 12:08 PM
My brain shuts down when it's doing something it doesen't want to and when my conscience is doing something fun...and it shut down....right on the drop on MF...but it wasn't fainting, it was just like an out-of-body experience or something. And I also don't remember most of the ride....only the lift, middle of first overbanked turn, top of second big hill, and the rest of the ride after the second tunnel. :(
08-26-2001, 12:59 PM
nope never have
08-27-2001, 11:51 AM
I've never blacked or grayed out but after riding MF I was so dizzy and light headed i got off on the wrong side and fell over. It was awesome though.
08-27-2001, 01:03 PM
I got very blurred tunnel vision on Goliath.
09-21-2001, 05:30 PM
I got very blurred visoin on shockwave at SFGAM and in the front seat on b:tr at SFGAM
09-21-2001, 06:10 PM
Nope but sometimes i get lightheaded
09-21-2001, 06:14 PM
On Kraken right before the brake run and on Hulk during/after the cobra roll I get a bit of a grey-out, but not on any others.
09-21-2001, 06:39 PM
I never have but i was on one of those bungee slingshot things and this girl i was with had a MAJOR black out....like she was out like a light from the launch and didnt come round until the end...maybe she just fainted. Is there a difference?
09-21-2001, 08:22 PM
I have blacked out on shockwave, iron wolf and B:TR not a clone
09-21-2001, 08:34 PM
i never have blacked out on a coaster, but my freind came really close to it. he was at Six Flags Over Texas and almost blacked out on Titan.
09-24-2001, 05:04 PM
09-30-2001, 05:16 PM
Nope, never blacked out on a coaster
09-30-2001, 06:34 PM
I have never blacked out on a coaster! I do have to say though that my first ride on Titan I got off and my legs felt like a bowl of jello:p :eek: ! I was just stepping out of the train and boy my legs were all mushy- I staggered off- I shook my head little and began walking to the exit like I had to much to drink!!:D I am sure it was a funny sight! Whatta feeling, never had that feel after getting off a coaster before!! IT WAS GREAT!!:D :D

Back wehn Rpator was new, 94 I think, and we had just done the first zero-g roll and I lost all bearing of where on the coaster I was, and did not regain until the final helix. After that, I have not had any experiences like what I had.
09-30-2001, 07:03 PM
Blacked out or I call it grey out.
This happend on Titan at Six Flags Over Texas on Media Day.
Sometimes the mid brake would not slow the train enough. This happend around ride 30 that morning. Very powerfull g's in the helixes.
See ya upsidedown

I blacked ut after the second loop on the canyon blaster at circus circus adventuredome.
really freaked me out.
person who loves coasters
10-05-2001, 08:18 PM
Not blacked out, but I felt powerful g's and fuzziness on montu's batwing...very good ride though ;)
10-06-2001, 05:00 AM
I have never blacked out on any coaster I have been on...but it seems a lot of you are mentioning Goliath as one...I haven't been on Goliath...maybe it would happen to me too!
10-06-2001, 08:15 AM
nope, never and i hope i never do
11-18-2001, 01:56 AM
I ever never really blacked out but i thought I did when I rode Disaster Transport for the first time and then dscovered that was part of the ride.
11-18-2001, 04:25 PM
Got blurred vision when I rode Top Gun @ PKI. On the turn-around when you are approaching SOB...
11-18-2001, 08:02 PM
On the sooper dooper looper i kind a blacked out, i put my mands up for the loop and my face flew forward into the front of the car. I woke up near the end of the ride. i had a huge sore on my head after that one.
11-19-2001, 08:17 AM
Closest I ever came was on B:TR at SFGrAdv. Don't know why. It only happened once.
11-19-2001, 09:01 AM
I HAVE NOT BUT I ALMOST DID ON MF AT CEDAR POINT
IT WAS MORE OF A GRAY OUT
(MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK)
11-19-2001, 07:10 PM
I have almost blacked out on Goliath.
11-20-2001, 03:04 AM
I grayed out on the second loop of Laser at DP. That ride doesn't look like much, but it will lay some G's on you.
11-22-2001, 10:13 PM
Nope. (but if i did i wouldnt tell my mom, she'd freak out):*)
11-23-2001, 02:47 PM
On Goliath, I almost did, but not all the way. That's the only time for me that I've ever almost blacked out on a coaster.
11-23-2001, 03:50 PM
No, I have never blacked out on a coaster...I only got a terrible headache from a coaster ride twice. The first was Gouderix at Parc Asterix in Paris and the second was Psyclone at SFMM.
