    I still have to do the wooden side of PKD. It's sounds more encouraging nowadays. Also among my worst coasters are wild mouse coasters that can really slice the stomach with some of their sharp turns.

    ^ Yeah the one at SFKK is awful. It beat the crap out of me.

    I don't know why Grizzly gets a bad wrap sometimes, doesn't bother me. Means there's less of a line!!!

    The tunnel is just insane. That's when you are really grateful for upstops.

    Why do you people hate Timber Wolf?
    It hasn't ever been rough in the first few rows (to my knowledge). yeah, it was really rough in the back a couple years ago, but it's completely managable back there now. Mean Streak is worse in the front row than Timber Wolf is in the back. And Wolf has some awesome airtime.
    Disaster Transport is the other surprise to me in this thread. I thought it was really obvious - if it's hot out, don't ride. Wait until 7:00 or 8:00 pm when it's cooler out. We got two walkons when we went in July, and it's actually a fun little coaster. The only problem is the theming.

    Are the motorbike coaster restraints anything like DisKo restraints? Hopefully the answer is no, as I clearly remember worrying about my ribs at Mt. Olympus.

    From the pictures I have seen, they look sort of similar.

    Oh dear, I suppose this passage out of my 2003 trip report to SFKK can shead some more darkness on this terrible coaster.

    "Road Runner Express looked interesting, and I always enjoy a good wild mouse. Now if only this coaster was a good wild mouse. So I get in the car and go up the lift hill and you look at the top and it looks as though the turns will be intense. But by intense, you don't expect your jaw to shift from side to side grinding your teeth, nor your legs to be jacked against the steel lapbar from the lateral forces, nor your neck to snap and crack, nor your nose to bleed, nor your faith in God be weakened, but the coaster does them all and then some. Even Mean Streak doesn't punish you this much. 1/10"

    Viper? at SFMM? Vipers not that bad. sure theres a bit head banging, but its nonetheless a fun ride. Psyclone, I can't complain about. It's not exactly the smoothest coaster.

    Pretty much sums up my opinion. The yellow track paint doesn't hide its suckiness.

    I remember how excited I was for my first Vekoma SLC, and when I came off, I was thinking, "Wow, that sucked." First coaster that made me think that, but unfortunately not the last. Since then, my two boomerangs and one other SLC made me think that too, but nothing more than Anaconda @ PKD. I like Arrows usually, but that second half is slow, boring, and painful, the worst combination. The first half is OK until the sidewinder element, and the ride just gets worse.

    Mind Eraser at SFNE only has moderate headbanging in my opinion, surprisingly, but what does hurt is the way your chest repeatedly rams into the OTSRs at many points in the ride, including the brakes. The brakes start with a gentle deceleration, so you think "oh, this isn't bad", and then BAM it feels like you ran into a wall.
    Off topic... Yay it's my birthday tommorrow.
    In our hearts, it will remain SROS forever.

    After riding it in person and then being reminded of the ride on Youtube I think Grizzly @ PGA is one of the worst woodies I've ever been on. Slow and boring.

    No way, SLC's are nowhere near as bad as Pinfari's (well, atleast the ones I rode were quite smooth- Tizona, Terramitica and Kumali, Flamingoland) The worst has to be Tornado at M&D's Scotland. It's HORRIBLE. SO SO PAINFUL. The headbanging is terrible, and to make matters worse, the restraint crams your arms to the side so you can't move them and they go numb if you try to put your hands up. Overall, it's the worst ride I have EVER ridden.

    You know, I used to defend SLC's, because the one at Wild Adventures was smooth...but I rode T2 at SFKK, and it was the most horrible rough piece of crap I've ever had to ride.

    You know, I rode the legend 1 time, and I didnt like it at all. We made the mistake riding the voyage first so I thought that was it, but I still thought the raven was fantastic, even though we rode it last. The voyage was slow, uneventful, rough.....it just dragged on and on.

    The ending has that one crappy transition in the middle of the pretzel turn that hurts like noones business. But the corkscrew ending is awesome, the hangtime is incredible.

    For me it is Flash Back at SFMM, its the only coaster I will NEVER ride again! And runner up is Mean Streak at CP.

    Can someone give me a ride review of FLashback? I've always been intrigued by what it's like, ever since it was Z-Force at SFOG.

    How can you say the Voyage is slow and uneventful it is nonstop action except the MCBR which was over quick. oh yea voyage is the smoothest wood coaster I have ever ridden I have no idea how you can say it rough with things like Thunder Run Out there. Ouch, man I had a bad head ache.

    You have definetly not rode Thunderhead. The Voyage fells like you are going through a tornado compared to Thunderhead.

    Voyage is the pretty rough though. Not as rough as the legend but the 2nd roughest coaster I have ever rode wood or steel.
