I can't bring myself to buy a roller coaster tee shirt, but that T3 shirt is pretty funny. I know there are a ton of "I survived XXX ride merchandise," but this one almost holds true. I'm sure KK knows what a terrible experience T3 delivers. It might help to actually change the marketing toward that ride as some kind of endurance accomplishment. They could really hammer the survival aspect.

There must be something wrong with me since I found T3 rerideable.

The ride doesn't track well, but the trains do protect against headbanging.

That being said, I shudder what it would have been like with the original trains.

^ It was awful, with the old trains. It is much more tolerable now.

Oh god, the old trains... Memories of bear-hugging the bulky restraints and pressing my face against one side of padding for bracing. :lol: Regardless of what anyone says of the ride now, I think it's improved for sure (and I, too, can re-ride it).

The best trick for any otsr is to keep your head way forward so your head never makes contact with them.
Best Wood Lightning Rod....Goliath SFGAM....Shivering Timbers....Storm Chaser...Voyage
Best Steel Maverick...Lighting Run.....Montu...Mako..Fury...Afterburn...Manta
Honorable mentions Kumba..Raging Bull..Legend..Cornball..M Force..Rapter..Mr Freeze

You know what....Way to many good coasters the best :lmao:

I don't know about you, but when it comes to a ride as snappy as an SLC, I'd take a blow to the head over snapping your neck any day, thank you very much.

^What they said. And the padding on old SLC trains can be large enough that you could accomplish both if you tried it. ;)
