Rough but fun 7/10 - Owen Scott

Very, Very rough but it's amazing layout and great tunnel. Worth a ride but I personally felt that Rebel Yell was better as an experience considering that great airtime! Not painful just rough. 7/10 - Edward Morgan

The first two days of my visit it was running really good. It stormed on the 2nd night and was rough the 3rd day. Awesome layout and tunnel. 7/10 - Will Gibson

It was a typical woodie - rough but not painful. Thrills were moderate. We had to ask for help finding the entrance to this ride (you have to walk through a gift shop). - Roger S

* OUCH! * - Jean Seo-Park

Rough, but not painful, and still fun after all these years. - James Rao

The first time I rode this, it was raining! I still love Grizzly; it's my favorite wooden coaster. - Chase Gray

my second rollercoaster.i rode this when i was six or seven. - Tyler Bell

I hated Grizzly & that was disappointing. I always hold out some hope on woodies, hoping for a better experience than the one I've come to know on Mean Streak. The only thing that separated Grizzly from Mean Streak, in my opinion, was speed. Grizzly isn't trimmed as much, but I experienced just as much pain. My back hurt [the pain lasted into the next day] & I felt nauseous. - Erin B
