Most rerideable coasters?

Hi guys. In a coaster, many of us value rerideability; I know I certainly do! But my question to you is; what is the most rerideable coaster you've ever ridden? What is that coaster that you could literally sit on all day without feeling nauseous or exhausted, but still having fun and never getting bored?

Now, the reason why I ask this question is because I get the impression that it might not necessarily overlap with people's favourite coaster. For example; Steel Vengeance claims many people's number 1 spot. It is reportedly insane, but I get the impression that it's not overly rerideable. I'm sure the greatness of the ride gives its riders a huge desire to reride, but I get the impression that SteVe has very strong g-forces, especially negative g-forces, which can make the ride very exhausting and as such somewhat hard to reride.

For me, however, I value fun and rerideability hugely in a coaster, so my most rerideable overlaps with my favourite coasters. I'd definitely say that Mako and Icon are two of the most rerideable coasters I've ridden. Also, an honourable mention goes to The Swarm. I find that these 3 strike a wonderful balance in that they have enough forces to make the ride thrilling and give you a desire to reride, but they don't have the amount of force required to make you exhausted or ill from reriding.

But for you guys, which coasters do you find most rerideable?

they don't have the amount of force required to make you exhausted
I'm at the stage where I prefer this anyway. I like a ride to properly kick your ass but then make you go straight round again for more regardless - theyre the best kind of rerides. If the physical exhaustion or whatever outweighs the desire to ride it again, then I'd argue it can't really be that good.
To that end, there isn't really anything among my most intense favourites that I wouldn't reride a ton given the opportunity (maybe Eejanaika? don't know, can't see that ever being possible anyway), which means I'm going to have to cop out and not give an answer.
Sorry!

I agree about the force but there's a strange exception to this for me, and that is Kärnan. I kept reriding it all day (barely any queue, esp. later in the day) and I think I rode it 14 times when I visited, a large part of it back to back and had absolutely no issues despite it being among the most intense rides I've experienced. Wouldn't say the same about some other forceful ones. (The gimmicks, at least to me, make Kärnan more rerideable as well despite me expecting the opposite)

But what I think is a big factor is also rattle, rattle ain't bad with a couple spaced out rides but if you rattle all day (for me at least) it can give you a bit of a headache, or a bit more of a headache. And idk how many people can relate to this, but I get very easily nauseous from motions that are "too smooth", happens with me irl in new, fast elevators when they accelerate or slow down and in slower LSM acceleration/deceleration like in the Skyrocket II models. Otherwise I don't really get nauseous from coasters but too gradual braking/acceleration can do it.

For me, re-rideability is one of the most important things in a coaster. I find that some coasters are good for one ride but then they start to make me feel ill if I re-ride them too many times (e.g. Nemesis).

One of my favourites for re-rideability was Flying Aces. It's my number 2 coaster, it didn't make me ill, and it was quite different depending on whether you sat on the inside seats, the outside seats, or towards the front or back of the train.

I also like rides which give you a different themed experience each time you ride, e.g. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster with its different soundtracks and lightshows.
 
Great thread :) I value rerideability so highly that every one of my top 10 are rerideable. Most of them I have actually marathoned at some point, including every coaster in my top 5.

For that reason, it’s going to have to be untamed. But every coaster has it’s limit, a point at which your thighs hurt, or your head hurts, or you are pulling muscles somewhere... So the coaster in my top coasters that I think I could ride, almost forever, is Shambhala.

Edited to add: I would have said Helix, but they always make you walk the entire queue system, every gruelling staircase, trust me after running around 20 times without pause, it begins to take it’s toll!

I'm gonna get burned alive for this, but i honestly wouldn't mind riding a freespin all day.
Every cycle is different and the ride could give very tame to brutally extreme cycles, every ride would be different from each other. I found myself wanting to re-ride Joker at Great America a lot!

Blue Fire and Millennium Force also spring to mind, Blue Fire literally makes B&Ms look rough in comparison, the heartline roll and airtime pops also make it fun enough to be exciting. Millennium Force is similar with a few moments of craziness but overall a lot of less intense stuff in between.

If it a) doesn't hurt.
b) doesn't spin*
and c) isn't boring, I'll happily marathon pretty much anything. Steel Vengeance? Piece of piss. Taron? No sweat. Helix? Bring it on. Storm Chaser? Yep, did it, loved it.
Voyage? Erm... ok maybe not anything, but it was a really hot, sticky day that day.

*Time Traveler and X2 being exceptions to the spin rule, but things like spinning mice, zacspins and freefly's can f*** right off.

You're sticky, don't be so blasphemous :rolleyes:
Zacspins are the worst, up there with Volare's as a ride type which needs to be sunk in a trench somewhere.

You take that back 😡🔪

But that actually reminds me, Zacspins are some of the most re-rideable coasters for me, of course granting that it's less crowded of a day. No nausea no matter how many rides I've taken on Insane or Kirnu, no rattle so no headache, intense fun.

Millennium Force.
I can, and have, ridden it 7-10 times in a row. It's not just so smooth and comfortable but it does provide a thrill. It's perhaps, still, the best blend of thrill and re-rideable. Though Fury 325 is up there.

I also found Wicked Cyclone crazy re-rideable because while it was packed with so much air and intensity, far more than MForce and 325, it was not as violent as other RMCs. SV, Storm Chaser, even Twisted Cyclone, all hurt after some time. Not that one. But I haven't been since opening week, I've heard it's supposedly declined/gone to crap so it may not be good anymore.

It was always tough for me to balance re-rideability and overall quality. Some of my fav rides are not very re-rideabe...SV, Voyage, Storm Chaser. Even Skyrush while I never found it as bad as most, it is very intense. That makes these rides great, but not as pure 'fun' as a Millennium Force or Fury 325. And don't get me wrong, I have marathoned both SV and Voyage. So I'll still go for it but wow did I feel it the next day.

Insane gave me the most painful ride of my life, the restraints felt like they were cutting into us because of the forces, it was disgusting. When I ride a new one I hope the weight on both sides is even. It wasn't the nausea, or headbashing or anything normal, but physical pain I draw the line at.

WICKED CYCLONE IS LESS INTENSE OMFG I can imagine what other RMCs are like but my only other one is Steve which doesn’t have the strongest air but wicked cyclone is super sustained I rlly need to get on more RMCs
