But.. The Villain at the former Geauga Lake. If you think Mean Streak is bad.. you don't know real pain.
I've chipped teeth riding boulderdash. so thats def up there. But Geauga lake is infamous for pain
No.. it isn't? The Villain was infamous.. the rest of the rides were on par with most parks..
I've always heard people complain about Geauga.
they had an SLC, those are always horribly rough
they had Villan
They had a Vekoma boomerang which always kills my back
They had a classic Arrow Corker which are as painful as any vekoma ride gets
and the bobs was not the smoothest ride ever.

i think the old/sorta current SFMM coaster lineup was pretty rough too though
Colossus
Flashback
Ninja
Viper
X (im so glad they fixed that horrible thing)
Deja Vu
Psyclone
Revolution

whats your personal most painful park snoosnoo?

Wood: Hades - That thing was running like crap when I was there. It was absolutely painful.
Steel: For some reason I remember Raptor being the roughest piece of crap ever. I could have been that I was not "fresh" when I rode it.

Probably Thunder Hawk at Dorney. I swear, I almost gave my uncle a concussion when I rode it. :lol:

Steel would probably be Ninja at SFoG.
 
Voyage. I think I've come to the conclusion that it's rougher than Mean Streak, Ghostrider, or any Boomerang/SLC. It's still an amazing coaster though.

1. Thunderhawk was/is the smoothest SLC I've ever been on.
2. Villain is death.. but I don't know many parks without a **** wooden.
3. Head Spin was exactly that.. headache.. but it wasn't THAT rough.
4. Double Loop was fine.

You are giving into stereotypes my friend.. not everything follows the trend.

My worst park? No idea. Every place has **** and good.

Haha, my cousin's boob popped out of her shirt on that, it was so rough. But I still don't remember it being that bad.

Anyway, for me it would be Cobra at La Ronde because it butchered my ears and head, and then Wild Beast at Canada's Wonderland. I had a headache from Cobra for literally days, and Wild Beast is just he crappiest wooden coaster pretty much ever, even worse than Son of Beast.

As far a flat rides, Jet Scream at Wonderland. I think they try to flatten your lungs with those restraints, and it really is to the point where you have a hard time breathing.

I actually found cobra to be one of the smoothest intamins ive been on. I went on it about 7 times last time i visited. maybe it got worse its been 2 or 3 years since i went.

sorry for the doublepost

Roughest parks in my opinion are

Great Escape in NY
Dorney Park
Valleyfair is god awful for pain.
and SFgreatadventure has some rough rides
GASM, when it was open Stuntman's FreeFall, B&R the Chiller, that horrible family mine train, Rolling Thunder, Kingda Ka felt pretty rough last time i went on it i was really suprised
Space Shuttle is one of the most painful flat rides on earth
their top spin hurt too
so Great Adventure and Dorney Park pretty much tie.

Steel: Infusion at Blackpool, Constant headbanging throughout the whole ride, especially through the Sidewinder and In-line twists. Colossus at Thorpe Park comes a close second.

Wood: Big Dipper, also coincidentally at Blackpool! This thing actually did want to break my back, I had back pains for a few days after riding this POS.

I have gone to Mt. Olympus in 2007 and 2008 and I felt Hades was so much better in 2007 so I agree with you. Hades is now up there for me.

Wood: (Hades) I also remember Gwazi being quite rough.
Steel: Dragon, Adventureland not enough people have ridden it to experience this piece of crap. I put it as my roughest coaster I have been on.
