I have spent a lot of time at Cedar Point and every time I'm there Top Thrill Dragster is lined way up and broke most of the day. I can not count the number of times it has broke while I was getting up close in line. So its frustration factor makes it one of the worst.

 

Also, the Mean Streak hurts.

 

Also, I agree with one of the first posts. The coaster at NY-NY in Vegas not that good. However the one at the Sahara in Vegas was fun. I think it was Speed the Ride.

The worst coaster by far is Steamin Demon at The Great Escape. Possibly one of the most pointless coasters ever.

 

Dude, it's a classic Arrow Loopscrew, one of the first modern looping coasters around!

 

(There are 10 of them...)

I know you guys will hate me, but the worst design of a coaster ever is the Vekoma boomerang design. I get the worst headache from riding 'em. Since I'm from Cali, I'll pick Knott's Boomerang as the worst.

Yeah, I'll go with:

 

*'Steamin' Demon' @ Great Escape

*'Predator' @ Darien Lake

*'Hurler' @ Kings Dominion

 

Tear 'em down, they're all awful and completely pointless. Maybe not the worst coasters in the world, but there really isn't much good to say about any one of them!

A Classic Arrow loopscrew that is rough, outdated and pointless! Don't get me wrong I love old classic coasters but this thing is horrible!

It used to be a tie between Mind Eraser and the ever so creative "Flying coaster" at elitches but Mean Streak is easly the worst. Trims, and boring. I didn't find it to be THAT rough and im sure I could handle a trimless ride on it. Even so I don't see how the layout could provide enough airtime to make up for its roughness. I do believe the main reason they added trims was because it was going to fast and it was causing all the wood to weaken or something like that.

I don't think that Mean Streak qualifies for this because it really isn't that rough or bad, it is just a slow moving, boring, and way too of a long ride. I also don't think that Grizzly is the worst even though it is a little rough and really boring. I think the worst coaster is definitely the Texas Giant. I go on this coaster once every year and it only gets worse as time progresses. Every time a train comes back into the station people are complaining about how unbearably rough it was and how much pain it caused them. It is like having a jack hammer digging into your spine, neck, and head for two minutes, it's just pure hell.

Worst that I've been on, Psyclone that used to be at SFMM. The worst part was that my mom was concerned about me falling out, and she pushed my restraint down too hard. I had to go to the bathroom really bad, so I was mad at her and I told her to NEVER mess with my restraints! Then the coaster was horrible, so that really made me hate Psyclone bad!

One of the worst, or at least the worst replacement, is Star Jet at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ. It's this Miller made steel coaster that has an OK drop and a nice view of the ocean...but that's it. The ride is rough, the turns are awful, and the layout is complete garbage. The worst part is that they actually had the stones to name it Star Jet, after the awesome Schwarzkopf Jet Star that used to reside in its place!

For me, it is definitely Iron Wolf at SFGAmerica. I've never ridden a coaster where I literally had head banging from start to finish. I was riding it with my friend and I just swore the entire ride while he laughed at my pain. It was a few hours before I felt my ears again. BTW, I was standing up, not riding it like it was a bicycle seat. It didn't help one bit. Normally, I put my head forward to avoid head banging, so Arrow rides don't bother me, but the restraints are so bulky for this piece of crap that it didn't even work.

Wild Beast @ Canadas Wonderland. That thing is just awful.

 

Yes, I may have to retract my previous vote (from KD - Hurler) and switch it to Wild Beast after riding this coaster a couple of weeks ago. I was starting to think that maybe I am just getting too old for some of these older wooden coasters because it seems like everytime I ride a woodie that isn't named El Toro or RFII, it totally fails and beats the living crap outta me!

 

I did not even bother with Mighty Canadian Mind Buster. I just could not endure another crappy wooden coaster after riding Wildebeast.
