What Rides Do You Hate?

Postby Mixerholic » Fri May 25, 2012 4:25 pm

I am passionately against Ali Baba because it looks as it performs. Crap. It doesn't thrill me in any shape or form anymore, instead it just makes me wanna chuck! Also I am no fan of Hard Rock! It's just a smaller version of The Claw (Dreamworld) which is far more superior. It probably doesn't help when you ride Hard Rock on a miserable day and you're the only one on it! As much as I want to dish The Pirate, I simply can't. It maybe an oversized kids' swing but it as a classic in it's own right. I respect it by not riding it because I don't want to ruin the day of my fellow riders.

I liked Hard rock much better than the claw!! Surprisingly I have ridden them both, just goes to show we all have different tastes.

dont even start on the PIRATE, that's classic HUSS engineering right there! amazing ride!
Ali Baba...well we know my reasons.

Not really a fan of Energy Storm, and im purely commenting on the engineering of the ride....It looks terrible, whoever let it out of the factory needs a good kick to the head!

I love hard rock! I've never had a bad go on it yet.. Also energy storm does look pretty bad but holy crap can it give you a good ride!! I had a joke with the operator at last years paniyiri festival. I asked him what he reckoned of pickets extreme. No reply but Jesus didn't he show me what the energy stom machine could do! Woah I was close to blacking out and I couldn't feel my right arm or leg!

The only ride I do dislike is mixer. Clunky, ugly and uncomfortable. Sorry mixer..

Force10 I respect your opinion on the mixer and I would love to try out the energy storm.

Also a few more rides that I don't like are Hurricane because I get very nausiated and Top Gun because I'm not very comfortable (no thanks to my awesome legs :lol: ) and also going over the top is just TOO FLIPPING SLOW!!!! Also when we go over the top I feel like I'm gonna fall out because my legs turn into frogs legs and they just wanna escape the harness!!!

Wouldn't say i hate any ride... I find Energy Storm uncomfortable, last time I rode the harness' really dug into my legs. Ali Baba's are boring, would rather a Music Trip any day over them.

I find Hard Rock to be one of the best rides travelling, awesome sensation of weightlessness and always have a fun ride on it

I don't think I hate any rides either. I always give everything a go once and then just pick the ones I like best next time I'm at the carnival or amusement park. The only ride I could say I disliked was the Scorpion and even then it was one particular ride as I have had good times on it too. Not long before Goldenway sold it, I rode it at the Easter Show and for some reason, it didn't do nice things to my head and made me feel very dizzy indeed. It could've had something to do with the ride cycle. I'm not joking, it lasted twelve minutes and I just about fell down the stairs when getting off; never again!

the midnight madness is rough as(first Ali i've been on). i like the ride that the big whizzer gives (if it's a good operator) but the lap bar is uncomfortable for me as it sits hard against my legs hard rock was awesome and the March's hurri's regular generator is just way too loud

But that's one part of the thrill of it though, standing up and being held in just around your waist and shoulders. Awesome ride, always gets me seeing stars

Yeah, Techno isn't really good for people that are really tall. I didn't mind the actual ride, just came off hurting alot... same as the Ex. Durkin's Claw. The OTSR's really hurt my shoulders as they were hard as rock. And if I want to bounce alot, I'll go for the king of bouncy bouncy and that's the Hurricane... *sigh* I need to track one down for a ride, it's been over a year :(

Another ride we enjoyed together Hurricane, Youngs at fishers ghost, I think that was the highest I had experienced.
