This is one wild ride. Very rough outside the decent airtime. But you can't enjoy any airtime when bumpiness happens at the bottom of each hill. Although if you remove your back from your seat its pretty smooth, but then you look like a moron ha. To make things short this is a rough ride. - Joey Till

Riding this coaster is like having the back of your head hit hard repeatedly with a 2 by 4. About 2 minutes of relentless headbanging. The only way I would ever ride that beast again is if they let me wear a football helmet. I felt like I needed to see a neurologist after that head beating. If however they could find a way to prevent the ride from being so $%&@-ing painful, it might actually be a pretty cool ride. As it is it's just way too painful (and I rode it with the new, supposedly improved 2012 track). - Joe G

After the fixing parts of the track, the ride is amazing. Most of the rough parts are much smoother and whole ride is a blast! I would go so far to say it's better than Thunderhead at Dollywood, but that is probably because the cushioned Thunderhead seats guarantee a decent amount of roughness. Anyways, ride it again if you didn't like it the first time! - David L.

The first time I rode it, it almost felt smooth. Now it's just jerky. Not worth a ride if the wait is longer than 5 minutes. - Bradley Keith

A bit on the rough side but commendable b/c it's a classic. - Adrienne McDonald

jerky,shakey,whiplash,death defying,Sorry woodie coaster ever. - Tyler Bell

Please either convert this ride to steel rails or remove it altogether. Far too rough!!! - James Singleton

never ride unless you have an adamantium endoskeleton. i rode this as the second ride of the day after goliath and it nearly snapped my back in two. you have been warned !!!!!!!!!!!! WORD!!!!!!! - luis gonzalez
