    What are the smoothest wooden coasters you have ridden not made by the big 3 companies?

    For me, I would probably say NS and BPB. It seems to be running quite well this year!

    Mammut in Tripsdrill, doesn't do much, but it's very smooth for a woodie. A gentle ride.

    Does El Toro count?
    The reason I ask, trivia fans, is that El Toro was, in fact, constructed by RMC.
    If it does count, then that.
    If not, Balder.

    Nick Streak isn't even "smooth" in my opinion. I think there's a misconception that anything that isn't rough is by default smooth, but Nick Streak is still pretty bouncy and bangs about on the laterals, just no way near the extent that Nash & Dipper do. That said, I don't actually think I've been on a smooth woodie that isn't GCI built. Should be visiting Tripsdrill later in the year so I'll see how Mammut rides. :)

    Why has this been moved to roller coaster construction? Or did I stupidly start the topic in here in the first place...

    Phoenix, although that may just be because my butts not in that seat long enough to know if it's rough.

    I guess it's either Phoenix or Balder.

    Was having a hard time trying to think of one but I guess Phoenix. Don't remember it being particular shaky, and it certainly helps that you're basically in the air half the time.

    I'd imagine the Intamin Pre-fabs are among the smoothest, though I haven't ridden one.

    Only the most sustained airtime on any coaster ever! That's why it was my number one for five years. Only in the front row though. Sit there and your arse will never actually touch the seat.

    The thing that makes Phoenix so good is that there's one lap long bar covering both seats in each row, and it doesn't even come close to touching your thighs. And there's no seatbelts! So you're basically flying as you go through the seemingly simple layout. It's amazing.

    Phoenix is very smooth, Balder is as well. Toro has a few points of roughness, but I'd still put it 3rd behind the other 2.

    Yankee Cannonball. For how old it is, it's very smooth--so smooth, in fact, that it caught me off guard!
