I rode Kong for the first time this summer and the 1st time I rode, It was almost smooth :shock:, but then I rode a second time and then it just beat me up. I think the Red train on Kong runs better than the yellow one. Boomerang at SFMW was SMOOTH when I rode, Did I get lucky or is it always smooth?

IMO, SLC's can provide a decent ride for a park on a budget, but when a ride is cloned so much it becomes dull, not to mention the ride experience is a bit steryll compared to the B:TR clones. They are also not as smooth. All these reasons make SLC's much less desirable to ride IMO, but i'm a person who generally doesnt complain about rough rides....I love desperado.

I think that if there were only one or two SLC's in the world, instead of this oversaturation, we would see a lot more SLC enthusiasts. The fact that SO many parks have them, I believe enthusiasts just get annoyed. Same goes for Boomerangs. Look at Batman The Ride, it's a wonderful, smooth coaster, but it's rarely talked about anymore because they are everywhere.

I dunno, just my guess.

I really enjoy SLC's. My first SLC was Mind Eraser at SFDL. It was mostly smooth with a few rough spots. Like Mind Eraser said, if there was only a few SLC's in the world, people would enjoy it more. And look at my avatar...

I don't mind my Thunderhawk at Geauga Lake. It's actually very re-ridable (especially because there are never lines). The location over the water is very neat and it's a great ride. However, some of the SLC's with shorter trains such as T2 or ones over land (SFNE) just aren't as fun. It's all about the location and the TLC on the SLC.

Yes! SLCs are NOTHING compared to the damage and pain SoB can cause.

Idiot.

Well now, I know Son Of Beast can be rough but I also know that if you ride in the middle of the car you always have a good ride. Where as with the SLCs pretty much no where is safe.
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

I would love to see a video of Robb and Elissa on SoB to see how they react to that one.
