Corkscrew at Cedar Point was my first looping coaster as well. I've never been afraid of going upside down since.

My first looper that has more than 2 loops was Thunder Coaster at Nasu Highland Park when I was only 5. It was like " Wow I can do flip flap, we all can do it on the looper, it's so fun! Feel like going on a plane ride. I've got into the coasters, yeah. " 8)

I don't understand. How can runnier grease and less friction make the ride shaky? Surely it's the state of the track that makes a ride rough?

Anyway, my first looper was Indianna Jones and The Temple of Doom followed by Space Mountain, both at Disneyland Paris. That was a mistake, because my next looper was Colossus at Thorpe Park, a far superior ride in every respect. My favourite looper to date though has to be Nemesis. :D[/i]

I miss a coaster can do a flip flap so much that I do love it as the ride goes flip upside down with full of speed, a plenty of g's as well. :(

G-forces felt at the bottom of the loop ( when entering ) :
  • +6G's Make me feel dizzy a lot + "I AM gonna pass out." feeling.
    +5G's Make me feel dizzy a bit. "What a forceful loop." feeling.
    +4G's Make me feel sort of 'being pushed down into the seat' thing.
    +3G's Does not make me feel so much intense g's. "I would guess as this would be a comfy loop. B&M miracle.
    +2G's "Is it able to produce enough g's to complete the loop?"
    +1G's The earth's gravity.
    +0G's It can't be true because 0G's - weight'LESS'ness.

Me too..opening weekend. That season you ran to it at opening or there was no way you could ride as the line stretched all the way back to the park entrance.

What a fun ride and what a great way to open up a new world to coasters.
Life is short....have fun!
