Flying Ace Aerial Chase. Boring and very very rough. I don’t like The Beast either, mostly because last time I rode on a wheel seat

I believe that is the first time I've ever seen FAAC described as very very rough.  I've always found it silky smooth and sneaky fun.  Its aim is the 4-7 year old kid and their parents, so I get the boring in comparison to your typical coaster.  I've always found it fun.

My worst coaster... Excalibur at ValleyFair! or Cedar Creek Mine Ride.

My worst ever was, is, and always will be Serial Thriller aka Thunderhawk at SF:WoA/Geauga Lake with Red Racer 2020 and Raven 2020 being tied for second.  They did a phenomenal job with the off season re-track work on Racer, and I am not sure about Raven 2021 as I did not make it to HW this year.

It’s not the track that’s rough, the trains just have a super bad shakiness and it feels like it’s about to fall apart.

Agreed. It was fun and cool as Reptar as a kid, but yeah… Flying Ace’s trains are a little shaky. Though my last ride on it a few months ago (in honor of it’s 20th Anniversary!) wasn’t too terrible; I’ve had worse.

As for the worst ride I’ve been on? Mean Streak, especially that one time it really jackhammered at the bottom of the first drop. If it wasn’t rough, it was mediocre as it just meandered around the course. It always had potential, but never lived up to what it could have been. Thankfully, Steel Vengeance far outclasses Mean Streak multiple times over and is a fantastic ride. Honorable mentions would be Dorney Park’s Wild Mouse (so rough and janky, even during a Zen Ride - and it’s not the coaster type as Hershey’s Wild Mouse (ridden on the same trip) was much better!) and Son of Beast (specifically the Rose Bowl and the nothingness that occurred where the loop used to be (I rode it both with and without the loop).
