    Firehawk at KI wasn't as fun as I hoped it'd be. It was alright but I'd rather ride a B&M Flyer instead of a Vekoma Flying Dutchman.

    And of course, Mean Streak. I thought it wouldn't be bad. But it sure as :emoji_zipper_mouth: was worse than I could've imagined.

    TBH, I haven't ridden many roller coasters.

    But, the worst one I've ever been on is either Invertigo at KI because it hurt my back (I was probably holding it wrong...) or the Great Pumpkin roller coaster at KI.

    Invertigo wasn't bad when I rode it. I wasn't hurt, but I was dizzy for an hour afterwards.

    Responding to a four-year-old post here, but I have never heard an opinion like this of Phoenix. Just to be sure, this is the Knoebels Phoenix you're talking about? Do you still feel this way?
    (To be clear, of course I think it's your prerogative to love or hate any ride -- there's no correct opinion here -- I'm just surprised.)

    Yep, Knoebles. It's not even that it was due to falling to live up to hype, as I'd never even heard of it before.

    It just failed to deliver when I rode it. I'm never going to say anyone is wrong who loves it. It was just running terribly on the day I went. Sometimes, that just happens. It's a hard life being a cloaster enthusiast lol

    Thanks for the response. I'm hoping to visit Knoebels for the first time this summer. Your opinion will temper my expectations at least a tad, which is always a good thing.

    The run I had was definitely the exception, so I'm sure you'll love it.

    I loved Knoebles as a park to visit though - so you should have a good day no matter what.

    Vekoma makes a good chunk of my bottom list, which makes my excitement for Lech Coaster even more surprising.
    I can't really bother to rank the very worse ones, but here's a few that I have in mind for all the wrong reasons:

    - Condor (Walibi Holland)
    - Goudurix
    - King (portable coaster)
    - La Trace du Hourra (Parc Astérix)
    - Xpress (Walibi Holland, again)

    5- Runaway Mine Train (SFOT): Small, but ouch. It's kinda like a wasp.
    4- Gwazi (BGT): Can we tear this down for a small Dippin' Dots stall?
    3- La Vibora (SFOT): R.I.P. higher expectations for every other bobsled coasters.
    2- Big Apple Coaster (Las Vegas): Did someone call for a sore neck for a week?
    1- Green Lantern: First Flight (SFMM): Something worse than the movie. Simply put, this is why Ryan Reynolds stars in Deadpool.

    When I initially think about which coasters are particularly bad, not many come to mind, but I'm sure once I get the ball rolling...

    - Furius Baco, Port Aventura
    - Schweizer Bobbahn, Europa Park
    - Bobbahn, Heide Park
    - Goudurix, Parc Astérix
    - Trombi, Särkänniemi
    - Limit, Heide Park
    - Ultimate, Lightwater Valley
    - Vortex, Kings Island
    - Kingda Ka, Six Flags Great Adventure
    - Goliath, Six Flags New England

    There are more, but I'll stop at 10. Honestly, I can't think of a woodie that's bad enough for this list.

    Do the new trains really make the coaster this awful? I can remember it being pretty good in its previous incarnation in SFMM (also with the old trains).

    ^Yeah, I never rode it as Deja Vu, but going by my experience on Stunt Fall, the Premier trains really :emoji_zipper_mouth:ed it up. Not only do they track awfully but the shaping of the seats kept scratching the back of my knees. It was not pleasant.

    Yep - Rode old trains goliath about 4 years ago and it was pretty good, rode new trains goliath a year or 2 back and - EUGH!!!

    Anyway - one of my entries would be "space coaster" (ex M and Ds - now at Oakwood for some odd reason)... dunno how a small, reasonably pleasant looking family coaster can ride so badly!

    Ultimate is fab (though I admit I've never understood why) and Bobbahn is the best of a bad bunch, though again mack bobsleds are acceptable as long as you avoid becoming too intimate with the restraints. Redemption for including dreadful Furious Baco in your list though.

    What's so bad about Furius Baco? POVs make it look like fun.

    I don't have a definitive bottom 5/10, but here's a few of note...

    MP Xpress at Movie Park Germany - it was absolutely disgusting one of the worst SLC's I've ever done, hands down.
    El Condor at Walibi Holland - the single worst SLC in existence.
    Magnus Colossus - the single worst woodie I've ever done, just vile.
