^To be honest, when I rode Hurler a few weeks ago, I found it much rougher and a heck of a lot more painful than Son of Beast. Other than the Rose Bowl, I don't find SOB overly rough. The ride is just very boring, which is why I dislike it.
I would say the two are about even for me . If Hurler were smooth, Hurler all the way!
Took my family to Kings Island for our first trip on Saturday. We took advantage of the morning ERT on Diamondback and The Beast. Loved them both. The floater air on DBack is fun (though the coaster was more tame than I expected), and the closing helix of Beast just rocks, especially on the night ride. Great park overall, and we will definitely be back.
I have a hard time ranking coasters so here are just some of my favorites |Intimidator 305|Maverick|Skyrush|Voyage|Shivering Timbers|Goliath SFOG|Fahrenheit|Banshee|Mystery Mine|Cornball Express|Cheetah Hunt|
