Well i've seen mixed reactions today. It's a very close poll! I'm sorry to say i've never ridden one but I would really love to. And even though they are cheap vekoma's they're still an attraction, just a cheaper way to attract guest...may not be the smoothest way(lol thats a pun) but it still boosts the crowds. They look so amazing, and the layout looks so great, but when I always see people telling me how bad they were and how bad their heads hurted, I had mixed reactions...doesn't mean I wont try it! Thx for posting here!

P.s. hope those headaches go away :wink:

p.s.s. sorry i didnt post back sooner....i started this at about 11 last night and i just got home from school! I didnt think it would be thins big this soon.

Go Patriots!

Here's the thing - the layout of an slc is so compact that it's impossible for a train to negotiate it smoothly. Even if B&m designed these it would be rough.

Umm.. there are many B&Ms that are rough......
Most of the standups... And then BDK in the back row is by far the worst B&M ever made.... It makes the SLC next to it seem FUN. :roll:

I love pickles. No more comments neccesary.

Throwing my two cents in...I've never ridden an SLC that I'd care to repeat. I've done T2 (SFKK), Thunderhawk (Geauga), Mind Eraser (Darien Lake) and Top Gun (PCW). Each seemed like it was worse than the last. I've never had anything close to a pleasant ride on any one of them. So yeah, I had to mark "yes, they are that bad!" :-)

Oh please, Captain Exaggeration. Dark Knight is not that bad - even in the back row. There are quite a few B&M's that are just as rough, if not rougher.

Iron Wolf & Vortex are pretty much at the SLC level!

I've only ridden Konk---er, Kong---at SFMW. Before riding, I'd heard all the horror stories about these evil Vekoma creations, but I never had any bad rides on it. Of course, my last ride was in 1999, so maybe it's gotten worse...I haven't heard one way or another.

I've been on a few slc's and they're rough but not all of them. The layout is good that's also what a few others think but I never ride a SLC on the backseat because they are On that spot the roughest But their are other rollercoaster that are even more worse and rougher dan an SlC and yes i rode a coaster that was rougher than an SLC
