I believe it's called the Predator at Darien Lake outside of Buffalo. It's a wooden coaster and I felt like I had been beaten after riding it. I hate wooden roller coasters.

The Rattler, Six Flags Fiesta Texas - this coaster was painful to ride.
It is being redone and reopens this spring, really hoping its better

Another vote for Mean Streak, I get a headache just thinking about it. I go to Cedar Point every year and have not rode the Mean Streak in at least 7 years. My very close second would be the Mantis, that one gives me a headache and hurts my thighs.

That said, Gwazi & Busch Gardens in Tampa almost made me cry. It would the most jarring coaster I've even been on in my life. Not even down the first drop and I knew it was going to be a rough, horrible ride - NEVER AGAIN!!

Sidenote.... Cheetah Hunt is by far, the smoothest coaster I have ever been on!
Rode Cheetah Hunt for the first time about a month ago and it instantly became my favorite coaster in all of Florida!!

Gwazi is still horrible. They only had one side open, not sure if it was Lion or Tiger. Kumba switched to my "never again" list. Montu is still good. First time on Shrieka (sp). The dives were good but the rest of the ride was "meh."

Holiday has 3 roller coasters, all wooden. The Raven has gotten awards year after year.

Then, the Voyage is the big one...horrible, there is never a long line because I think I'm not alone in this opinion.

Now, the water park at Holiday World is fabulous.
I haven't been to Holiday World since before Voyage was built. Sorry you don't like it. It's usually at or near the top of many coaster lover's favorites.

Son of Beast at Kings Island hands down. My back was thrown out of that sucker with the loop and without it. So glad it is being torn down, will not miss it.

One of my favorite rides used to be The Grizzly years ago at Kings Dominion. It used to be surrounded by a forest of trees, so you couldn't see the track at all. When the trees were chopped down, it totally ruined the hidden track effect for me.

My two worst ones are The Rattler at Fiesta Texas in San Antonio - it's too rough and caused me and my sister to bump heads so hard our heads were bleeding when we got off the ride!

My second worst is a really old one from Astroworld in Houston, TX. It was called Taz's Texas Tornado and the harness mechanism on that ride is one where it comes down automatically over your shoulders. For some reason the harness kept crunching down, to the point it had me compacted down in the seat - then we got stuck on the ride and I was in awful pain until they were able to get us moving again. I had bruises all over my shoulders for a week!

I've been on that one, it's very bumpy and jerks you around a lot.

The worst one I've been on was the Mindbender at Edmonton Mall in Canada. I couldn't remember the name of the coaster and looked it up. I hadn't known that three people were killed on it back in the 80's. I probably wouldn't have gotten on it if I'd known!

Space Mountain at WDW, with Rock n Rollercoaster coming in a close second. RnRC sprained a bunch neck of muscles because the head restraint, well... it didn't. Space Mountain finished the job by spraining a couple of additional muscles in my sides and making me feel as though I'd been beaten with lead-filled rubber hoses.

I've ridden coasters off and on my whole life, and while I've gotten a little more sensitive to motion sickness over the years, I don't remember ever getting off a coaster before and feeling like I'd come out a distant second in a fight with a gorilla. The drops and loops are fun, but I can simulate the rest of the ride by taking a spin in the back of a cement truck on a steep mountain road.

The Mean Streak at Cedar Point is the most violent one I've personally been on.

Drakenfire at Busch Gardens in Va was the worst. It stood unused for about a year before it was removed. Even though it is great Historic Coaster, the Cyclone at Coney Island NY can give a very rough ride. I guess technology has improved over the last 90 Years.

I agree that Hershey Park's Sky Rush is the worst coaster I've been on. We were excited to ride it, but both of us spent the whole ride in pain, just hoping the ride would be over soon. When we got off, most of the other riders were complaining of pain also. As of last July, it was still the same painful restraint over the mid thighs.

One of Hershey Parks wooden coasters is pretty rough as well, though I can't remember the name right now. My niece is prone to concussions and we were seriously worried for her during the ride. And I see Mean Streak at Cedar Point mentioned quite a few times, but that one doesn't bother me too much.
