What roller coaster(s) do you hate?
« on: June 06, 2017, 12:55 AM »
So what roller coaster(s) do you absolutely hate? I'm sure we all have one that we will just never ride again. So what is it and why?

For me, it's Green Lantern First Flight at SFMM. It's easily the most painful roller coaster I've ever been on and in my opinion it doesn't have enough redeeming qualities to ever make it worth riding again.

Haven't really been on too many coasters tbh because I'm a wuss  :P  I'd say the worst one was Flight of the Hippogryph in Universal, because that thing is not made for tall people... at all...
After that it's hard for me to say. I haven't really been on bad coasters back here in the Netherlands. Then again, I think I've only been on 5 rollercoasters in total. (multiple times though)


EDIT: Just watched a video of the Green Lantern and that does not look very comfortable, indeed.

There are two and both of them are in Walibi Holland. Mainly Condor because it's so rough. Also, Speed of Sound was a huge disappointment. It's not rough or bad, but it's an overrated, overhyped boomerang with literally no scenery and a wait time longer than any other ride in the park.
On the other hand, Walibi Holland does have Goliath which is one of my favourite coasters.
Nothing to see here

Every boomerang ever made.  Make and model don't matter.  They all suck.

Only one comes to mind.

Magnum XL-200 at Cedar Point.

When me and my cousin went for our first time ever to Cedar Point in July 2018, one of the roller coasters we rode there was Magnum. Holy fucking shit, what a shitty ride, and super painful! I had a slight headache throughout this shaky ride, the lift hill was too long and slow and those final bunny hops in combination with the really uncomfortable lap bars hurt way too much. Sure, I REALLY want to go back to Cedar Point and ride all the AWESOME coasters again (STEEL VENGEANCE) but NEVER again with Magnum. 1 out of 10.

Demon at Six Flags Great America. Used to be the Turn of the Century. Great looking ride, but it bangs and tosses you around...guaranteed headache. About the greatest non-smooth ride I have ever been on.

Next on the list...Rip Ride Rockit at Universal. Don't get me wrong...its a great ride over all, but I have to say...its literally a 'ball buster'/'nutcracker'. The way the restraints work, just not a good scene, at least for me.

Any Vekoma Boomerang, normal or inverted. Horrible.

^^ Agreed on Demon. Really, I find a lot of old Arrow coasters have restraints that are painfully short for me, in addition to being rough. Corkscrew at Cedar Point may be iconic, but it's easily one of the most painful coasters I've ever been on, and not even in a good way like on some wood coasters.

0/10 would ride Magnum several times in a row instead

[...]

I remember, back in the days when it wasn't decorated and even busy days only a 30 minute wait...

It's just a vekoma boomerang, nothing special.
Have to be honest, I think they're great for the space they use. But a very bad capacity...

The worst coaster in my opinion... I really don't know. Do not have visited many parks in my life... Only MP Germany, Efteling and Walibi Holland & Belgium...
