They are Terrible, I am not sure what other bad rides eveyone has been on but these make the list. I hate having to ride SLCs, granted the "close calls" are quite interesting but come on, that in no way justifies building another one of these things. I mean lets be honest, i have never wanted to reride any 689 , a Curtis D. Woody, or a boomerang. No one says "hey remeber how bad that ride was, lets ride it again ! "
I've actually only been on two while I've probably skipped three (I'm not that big of a 'whore', especially when it comes to prolific Vekoma rides). The one at Darien Lake stunk, I wasn't in any hurry to reride, but at the same time it wasn't horrible. The stench from the pond kept me away from Mind Eraser more than anything. The one at New England banged us around a good bit but they had really soft restraints that made the ride fairly enjoyable. Still some of the best disorienting elements and nice legchoppers.
Why won't you guys stop selling these damn things?
I'm with coaster_type_of_person, I've never been on one either. Really, I've only been to one park that has one (Darien Lake), and it was closed when I went. According to my friend, "The Mindy Racer was closed because it got stuck upside down too many times." He also said that Predator's chain snapped and everyones necks broke, and on opening day, a guy died on Boomerang.
