no, your just a panzy. From what I've heard from many people is that kong is one of the better SLC. And you just need to keep your head back, i only had minor head banging (which was tolerable) in the front, and you were just screaming "Ow," and well frankly.... yeah. The farther in back you go the rougher it got, but it wasn't that bad, you just need to get a little tolerance to ride's that aren't B&M/Intamin smooth.
Anyways, the layout is beatiful layout, its too bad it doesn't ride as beautifully as it looks, but I still like it.

Exactly. A great layout, and great to watch...
Try riding them at the beginning of the season, in the morning, if possible after a bit of rain. 90% chance of a smooth(er) ride.
i have only ridden a couple, i believe two. sfne and the great nor'easter.
the great nor'easter is much more interesting since it does have the slides and log flume and just about everything else intertwined inside it. at night it feels as though you will hit all kinds of beams and things.
the other nice thing is the nice ocean view from the nor'easter.
i would still rather be riding the great white don't get me wrong but the nor'easter is fun and has a slightly modified layout.
They seriously Arn't as bad as everyone says they are besause you do get some forces off them i have been on 5 because i make it so that i ride it to see if one is smooth.Like Rock N Rollercoaster is smoother than other Vekoma rides so i just like to see if there is one
The only SLC I have been on is Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. I didn't think it was that bad, it was just a bit rough. I think the Boomerangs tend to be rougher than most SLCs. After the ride, my brother said that if B&M built an inverted coaster with the SLC layout, it would probably be one of the best inverted coasters out there.
