The only SLC I rode was at SFEG and it wasnt that bad!! I really enjoyed it specially for my first ride!!! But then again my opinion can be decieving from someone who really likes Flashback and Psyclone at SFMM!! Stupid SFMM either tear down Flashback or open it up!!!!

They are beautiful to watch at IMO, some are still smooth, like FX in Movie Park Germany and Vampire in Walibi Belgium, but El Condor in Walibi World isn't that bad, but it's the roughest.. but I think that's the most beautiful SLC i've been on.

Well kong over at SFMW is the worst. It stops and goes in several places. When someone with long hair rides you can even see it fly foward a bit than go back. Then it bangs your head obviously.

SLCs look good with a good layout but on the four I have ridden the ride has ranged from bumpy (Traumatizer at Pleasureland) to downright painful (El Condor at Walibi World). Vampire at Walibi Belgium wasn't so rough but can claim the prize for the smelliest coaster I have ever ridden.

The layouts are very good. Its the train's restrainst that hurt. The sooner they come up with lapbars for suspended coasters, the better.

I find them to be smoothest up front at least in terms of side-to-side headbanging action, but the stop-and-go sensation gets really annoying. That's what a really long train will do for ya.

What do you guys mean by Stop and Go? Are you saying that when they go into the inversion they slow down a lot and then pick up the speed exiting the inversion?

I think that may be what people are getting at. The front of the car is pushed through. SLCs i've found to be varied. Some are okay, some are a bit delicate, depending on the maintenance etc...
