Which Roller Coaster at KI has the most unconfortable trains?

Recommended Posts

Which operating Roller Coaster at Kings Island has the most uncomfortable trains/cars?

Do you think just the cars need replaced, or the whole coaster needs Demolished/Refurbished?

Firehawk - hurts my chest, but I understand the experience!

In my opinion Firehawk isn't uncomfortable it's just very complex and awkward. The most uncomfortable for me is Delirium (I know not a roller coaster). The restraint comes right down onto...yeah, you understand.

I would have to say Delirium as a ride, no padding at all on the seats. As far as roller coasters go I really don't feel as any of them are THAT uncomfortable.

FoF/Backlot

Ew, yes! Those low seats with the annoying lap bar where you feel so tight against the seat. I'll vote for that.^

Being 6'4", I find it hard sometimes to squeeze into these seats.

I would also have to vote for the back seats in The Vortex cars.

Don't really know of any that are in need of demolished, or tearing down, but since that is the question? Tear it down, rebuild do something with SOB.

I loved riding it !!!!!

Invertigo, by far. I must have oddly shaped shoulders/collarbones, because that ride, Drop Tower, and Dollywood's Wild Eagle all eat at my shoulders/collarbone area like there's no tomorrow. It's not something I hear other people mention, so it must just be me, but still.

^ I Agree. The old Arrow restraints are horrible hard rubber. They really need a softer rubber on these. I'm not sure how many times I've walked away with bruised cheekbones from that ride.

Ill have to agree with Vortex. As much as I love the ride, The shoulder restraints are the WORST! It takes every muscle in my neck and back to keep from smacking my head on the sides!

I'm throwing in on Vortex, too. I lurrrv Vortex, but not the head bangin' good time it delivers. Yikes.

I would say Vortex, and actually The Racer has been really tight on me the past couple seasons. Then again, I've gained weight which has probably been the issue. I'm dropping a lot of it this off season so hopefully it will be more comfortable.

Mine has to be Firehawk, I am at the point I can't ride it anymore. I think those restraints would work great on other coasters, just not a flyer.

Flight of Fear, Backlot, and Adventure Express. Being tall is not a good trait to have at an amusement park.

For me I will have to say Firehawk and The Racers. Firehawk would be fine if not for the helix thing at the end.. it pretty much squeezes me to death.(not really to death for thoses wondereing) :) And as for The Racers the restraint itself is fine but the head rest has a horizontal metal pole in the headrest for support. Well my head hits exactly where that is so every time I ride I end up with a bruise on the back of my head.

Invertigo. Big "lump" in the back of your seat doesn't exactly feel comfortable. :wacko: And back seats on Vortex also stink, I'm ok with the front though.

Now, I will also comment on the most comfy of Kings Island train designs...Diamondback. Last time I rode it, felt like I could easily take a tap in them if they weren't attached to a 230' roller coaster. :P

Vortex and Backlot are a bit uncomfortable, and The Racer gets to me, too, though not as bad as it used to. I'm not sure if that's from the seats though or just the ride itself.

Vortex, hands down.

To me it's even more painful if you try and put your hands up :)

I wouldn't know.

Terp, known for following rider instructions to the letter, even when parks are seeking photo shoots of riders with "hands up." No, thank you.

SOB, when it was operating I barely could squeeze into the car. I was 18 and in shape... I doubt at 26 I could fit in comfortably now...

I can tell you a ride.. not at Kings Island, that has the most comfortable seats. It was a Thunder of an experience riding it for my first time this past weekend.

If the Sun is showing in the sky, Firehawk is painful on the lift and while waiting to get back into the station, at least for the eyes.

For me, backlot sc.'s restraints on the legs are not that enjoyable, and The Racers lap bars can be of a pain.
