I just love these things and thought I'd find out what others think. Last weekend I rode one of the best I have ever been on. The Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland. No upside down tricks or anything like that. Just absolutely terrifying. The first hill is 230 feel tall and drops at an almost vertical drop. we were in the front row and it toiok a long time of cresting that hill before we coiuld see the track under us. The seats on this thing is what makes it scary. They are on a pedestal so your feet dangle and there is no real bucket seat so that you are snug up agains anything. you're kinda just sitting on top of a pedestal with a thing across your legs. freakin cool as hell. i felt like i was litterally gonna fall off it the whole tiome.

Jeez, sounds like it was improperly designed. lol. I'm starting to like them again as I did a big one at Sea World theme park in San Antonio but I dont want nothing of what you described haha.

My buddy went to Vegas and they got one that takes you alongside THE TOP of one of the hotel/casino and one on a skyscraper I think they got out there. Said there is a part where it you are like literally hanging off the edge of the entire building ... crazy as hell.
