Colossus at Thorpe Park, England. God, that ride hurts your back for atlest an hour.
Colossus didn't give me any pain when I rode it. Where did you sit?

Megafobia is very rough! But thats why I love it! My favourite woidie to date.
And all them comments about Nemesis, its a brilliant coaster, but it can be rough sometimes. But then other days its as smooth as butter. She's held up well for her age though!

^^ I've never been able to ride Colossus, the times I've been to Thorpe Park, that ride was closed -_-

I'm not to sure about Gwazi at Busch Gardens Tampa, I rode it back in 2005/06 when i was young so i wouldn't have much of an idea..

My roughest ride though is probably a Vekoma Boomerang I rode at a theme park in Belgium in July, it seriously hurt my neck on the cobra roll going backwards, I'm not sure if I want to ride one of them again now haha

Cyclone at sfne.  I knew it would be bad when the restraint didn't even go down to me or my friend (who's 6'2) laps.  I actually ended up with a bruise from the lapbar somehow though.

I think with Colossus you have a 50/50 chance of getting a bad ride. Once when me and my friends went, first ride of the day on it and we came off fine (well, a little dizy but thats Colossus for you :D) but when we went on it a little later, we came off with massive head aches. My roughest ride is definatley Colossus, but I still love it!

My roughest was Comet at Hershey.
Comet isn't rough. I love it, especially in the back.

Probably Mind Eraser at Six Flags America. I greyed out on the loop every time, I swear. Not only that, but it is pretty rough.

Any coaster you grey out is amazing unless it's an SLC. I nearly blacked out on Intimidator 305 and Nitro. I will say that Shockwave and Anaconda at Kings Dominion are near the top of my roughness list. I didn't find Hurler rough. Here is my list of coaster that I think are rough. I don't think Mind Eraser at SFNE is bad at all. Maybe because i rode in the front.

Shockwave at KD
Anaconda at KD
Gemini at CP
Mean Streak at CP
Corkscrew at CP
Wildcat at Hershey
Wildcat at Lake Compounce
Rolling Thunder at SFGAdv
Thunderhawk at Dorney
Flitzer at Jenkinson's
Cyclone at SFNE
1. Intimidator 305  2. Skyrush  3. Bizarro (SFNE)  4. Boulder Dash  5. El Toro  6. Millennium Force  7. Nitro  8. Apollo's Chariot  9. Maverick  10. Storm Runner

I would say the roughest I've been on would either be Le Cobra at La Ronde (Intamin stand up) which banged my head through the whole layout or Predator at Darien Lake which was bumpy/painful the whole ride. Both sucked :down:

Gemini at CP

I agree with your entire post but this, I don't find Gemini rough at all in fact I found it quite smooth. Did you ride in a wheel seat (3rd row of each car) or ride with the trims off? It can be painful then.

[/quote]I think I rode on one of the wheel seats. It really hurt my back on the first two drops.

The ultimate is definatly the routhest to me, however I still adore the ride and I don't mind being beaten up...

Gwazi is my roughest now! It was extremely rough with the new Millenium Flyer Trains but I did put my hands up and would love to ride it again. It's part of the fun! :)

My list has changed completely from my previous post:

(In order roughest to smoothest)
1. Mind Eraser, Elitch Gardens. Dear mother of heck. That ride has screwed my vision. I sat still at the park and my eyes went all wiggly. It still happens slightly but not often. Conclusion: Definitely once a visit. I'd ride it again, though.

2. Ghostrider, Knott's Berry Farm. One word: Blech. Ouch. Geez. I mean, there could not be a rougher woodie. Conclusion: Never again. Ever.

3. Viper, SFMM. Seriously. It's an Arrow. What'd you expect? Conclusion: Never again.

4. Wildcat, Hersheypark. That was rough, but surprisingly, seriously tolerable. Conclusion: Possibly multiple rides in a visit. If there's a short line. Tolerable. Fun.

5. Rockin' Roller Coaster, Hollywood Studios, in the back. Ugh. I got a headache. Really fun ride, though, with a good layout with fun scenery and Aerosmith. A bonus. Conclusion: Once a visit in the back. In the front, possibly two. (Always a long line, though)

And that's my list. Thank you to anyone who took the time to read all that, or at least skimmed-it. A cookie to you guys.

My roughest coaster I went on is Thunderhead at Dollywood the first time I rode it wasn't that bad so I rode it again immediately after which then I started to really notice the roughness leaving me never going on it again.

My top 5 roughest rides.

1. Mean Streak - Dear god please destroy this thing or give it a NTAG style make-over.

2. Cyclone @SFNE - Another rough woodie.

3. Ghostrider - It hurt but I still loved it, especially in the back.

4. Mind Eraser @SFNE - SLCs just plain suck

5. Various boomerangs - They all suck too.

Gwazi, it's true what they say... steel coaster would be Alpengeist (GOD I LOVE THAT COASTER) but if you close your eye's you might as well be on a woodie.
