I rode this coaster a little over a year ago and it was rough! I know it's a wooden coaster but it was like being thrown down a stairs.

Do you know if the changes they are making will make it a bit smoother?

Also want to know is it smoother? I will never go on it again if it's like the last time I rode. Worst roller coaster experience.
