I don't see what you have against it - it's a good thrill for what it is...

It isn't necessarily a "bad" ride though, Vekoma SLC's are bad rides. Rita is not the best, but it is still enjoyable and has a reasonable amount of airtime to go with the launch :)

Vekoma SLC's are horribly uncomfortable. :?

After visiting Chessington World of Adventures a few weeks back, a ride on Rattlesnake only reaffirmed what I already knew about Wild Mouse rides (hint; they're awful).

My list is going to be somewhat controversial.

No.

Image
Nope.

Image
Awful.

Image
This one caused a hospital visit.

Image
Urgh.

Image
Special mention goes to this for its completely offensive and childhood destroying retheme.

[email protected] of these storys.

My worst "ride" was on some bumper cars at a local fair. I got slammed so hard, multiple times. I think I probably got whip lash from it. This kid really hit me hard. Couldn't understand the appeal personally. No thankyou. :dizzy:

Aw but Adz I have a soft spot for Jubilee Odyssey! Do tell us the story of the hospitalization?
But its still a horrible ride in that it batters you. Not quite as bad as Infusion but getting there.

I have a similar story, but on those breakdance rides where, being the big sister, I always got lumbered in that left end where you got pushed into the edge of the seat everytime it went round. So painful. :no:

Twister rides at fairs. You get rammed into and feel sick after every ride. I just don't get what people see in them. :-k Anyone who has been on one will know.

Takabisha was horrendously unpleasant from start to finish. It dispatched one car every 10 minutes and we were subjected to an airport style security check to board it, including being made to place the singular tissue in my pocket into a locker.

Once on the ride it managed to bang its way round the track with all the finesse of an eagle piloting a blimp. I've had less painful tooth extractions.

I agree that these are painful... Don't ride them while sat next to someone twice the size of you, it doesn't end well! :yikes:
