Berserker questions

Kings Dominion: First, do people really spit when going over the top? Second, I have trouble breathing when riding Hypersonic, would I have trouble breathing on Berserker, then?

I wanna ride Berserker soon, and I have questions. First, do people really spit when going over the top? Second, I have trouble breathing when riding Hypersonic, would I have trouble breathing on Berserker, then? Lastly, when should I ride and where on the boat should I ride?

Thanks in advance

Never had a problem with spitting on that, but I have been hit on tomb raider. The shoulder harnesses on beserker are right on your chest and very heavy. It doesn't bother me, but I know people who wont ride because of the chest pressure. Where on the boat doesn't really matter, but it's more fun to sit in the center and look at people's face across from you. It's a good ride.

Thanks. I've never ridden anything similar to Berserker except Tomb Raider, but if it's popular enough that Carowinds would bring back Frenzoid/Southern Star, it must be good.

Depends on who all is in the boat, if it's a bunch of teenagers that are all like friends, you'll probably see some spit. I've always heard that it's awful but it's also all about timing of the spit.

Anyways, I rode it twice on July 14th, and I loved it.

Ick, that's disgusting!! Why wud anyone be so immature, that just sick. That's just as bad as ppl throwing gum around. Ick!! Thanx for the warning. I've always been afraid of getting spit on walking near sky buckets/chairs but never rides. Makes ya not wanna ride.

Don't worry Adrienne, you don't get spit on. MEN BEWARE: WHEN THEY SAY YOUR LAPBARS ARE NOW COMING UP, BRACE YOURSELF! IT HURTS!
