Mean Streak at Cedar Point

Seems like everyone's worst coasters has a theme -- wooden coasters are so much rougher than steel.

I agree about Mean Streak -- I was so sick after that ride...I didn't go on another ride for the next 2 days at Cedar Point.

I also felt sick after Expedition Everest....I think if my head/neck gets too jerked around, I get very nauseous.

I don't remember the name, but it was a wooden coaster @ Six Flags Georgia, I seriously felt like my neck was going to break!

Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain (which I think is gone now, this was 10+ years ago) was horrible, I was a teenager when I rode it last and I got a nasty headache from it.

Ghost Rider at Knotts Berry Farm was VERY rough. Even my dh who is a roller coaster enthusiast said he wouldn't ride it again without it having some serious work done.

How funny! That's mine too! As soon as the ride stopped all I heard was everyone saying "Ow!". However, I LOVED the Beast. Especially at night!

I loved almost all of the rollercoasters at Cedar Point (Maverick was a little bumpy for me, though).

My two all-time favorite rollercoasters are Millenium Force at Cedar Point and Sheikra at Busch Gardens Tampa (which surprised me because I hate the Griffin at Busch Gardens Williamsburg).

Mean Streak at Cedar Point. It earns its name.

Another vote for Drachenfyre at BG Williamsburg. It was like I had whip lash from a car accident.

Absolutely, which is why when I find a wooden coaster that does not beat me up, I am in LOVE . The Phoenix at Knoebels (PA) and El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure (NJ) are amazing wooden coasters.

Rode this once when it still had the loop. I spent the next 2 hours flat on my back in first aid with a pounding migraine. That's NEVER happened to me on any other roller coaster ever.

Totally agree with the Mean Streak. When I got off that I told my husband that I didn't have a headache, that my brain hurt!!! I will never ride that one again!!

It doesn't have the loop anymore? I used to live in Cincinnati 6-7 years ago and we went to King's Island all the time. The loop was the absolute worst! It felt like my neck was going to be pushed into my body. Plus, the loop felt like it was never going to end.

The Phoenix is AMAZING. You get awesome airtime on it!! I'm not in love with the Twister but my 10 yr old likes it more than the Phoenix I can't wait til next year when I take my youngest on them he is my daredevil!!

It doesn't exist anymore. They tore it down a year or two ago.
