While it's far from the worst coaster ever, can we all just take a second to appreciate how bad this ride is at Casino Pier in NJ?

The fact that Hurricane Sandy destroyed every coaster in Seaside Heights except this one is honestly some kind of sick joke. Not only is it tremendously uncomfortable with a terrible layout but it's a complete bait and switch. The name is accurate in a way because the Pirates must be hiding... seriously, this is the inside of the ride... where the f**k are the pirates?

I didn't expect Pirates of the Carribean but could you set up a mannequin with a cheap Pirate Costume from the Halloween store or something? What the hell is this sh*t???

T3 is this absolute worst i have been on. Even with the new trains, it just was not ride-able! It was the only ride that has ever made me go back to a hotel to recover. There is just something with the mix of poorly engineered inversions, roughness, the color red, and a simulated leg amputation that is just not pleasant!

No, no, no! You are not looking at it properly. This is the most immersive coaster ever. You (the rider) are the pirate that is hiding. That is why you don't appear in the picture you took inside the building. If you ride it again and pretend you are the pirate, it will make perfect sense.

Absolutely. People that complain about Skyrush hurting their legs should really ride T3, it's literally the WORST!

Gwazi. The only ride I’ve ever been on where I just wanted to get off from the moment it began. Painful and not fun, from start to finish. I see how it could have been a decent ride in its heyday when the wood was fresh and the PTC trains hadn’t beaten the track to hell yet, but by the time I got to it in 2014 it was a complete mess.

I DON'T CARE IF IT'S MADE BY GRAVITY GROUP, THIS RIDE IS STILL 100% TERRIBLE

I was on a month-long Yellowstone/other landmarks road trip a few years ago with my family and grandparents (that's actually the trip where I went to Cedar Point.) We spent a day in the Wisconsin Dells, and we avoided Mount Olympus. It was way too over-priced, and from the outside it looked like hell. We just ended up riding Avalanche all day, which is an amazing coaster. I've heard that Zeus used to be very good, but that it became horrible. Apparently Hades 360 is even worse than the original Hades coaster now that it's deteriorated. Cyclops is the only good ride left, and even now that coaster doesn't have buzz bars anymore, and it doesn't seem to be taken good care of. So that one's gonna be crap soon.

It really says something about a park when they are currently selling tickets for $5 today on their website, and it's still considered to be overpriced.

Good choice. Avalanche is an awesome ride.

Haha. I love those sketchy P.O.S. coasters on the Jersey shore that often leave you wondering if you should have updated your will before riding as you climb the lift. That Interpark model on Funtown Pier was actually a lot of fun! (RIP)

 

That said, I am going to have to put my vote in for Flight Deck at Canada's Wonderland (based on a ride in '11) though some have said it has ridden better the last few years. Soarin' Eagle at Coney Island was terrible this year too for whatever reason, though it typically has been better than other Volares in past years when I have ridden. Georgia Cyclone is my worst woodie, though front seat rides are reasonable. Never had my back feel the way it did after my ride in 09!

Im a little late on this post. anyways im gonna go by most boring coasters as my worst coaster ever. Of course i wont pick a kiddie one because you know they are for kids and of course they will be boring to most adults. I have two. Adventure Express at Kings Island was pretty disappointed. It was super rough and had no real drops at all. Mine train coasters are generally not my favorite to begin with as they kind of bore me,but thats just me. For some reason that coaster gets a lot of love though. The other coaster is that one at Mall Of America,that pepsi one...but i haven't been there since 2000. I was 10 and i even thought then that coaster was lame. It had no drops,loops,cork screws or anything.

We must have ridden different versions of Hades 360 because our whole group loved it earlier this year. Sure, it's aggressive and the pitch black tunnel make it hard to brace effectively but c'mon... it's a giant wooden coaster.

 

The back row of that ride really knows how to show you who's boss and none of us found it uncomfortable compared to other rides. That tunnel without the lights on straight into the corkscrew is just batshit insane.

 

EDIT: Also, re: their pricing, it varies wildly depending on what time of year you're going to the park. I think we paid $15 or so each back during summer to visit on a weekday and the park was absolutely slam packed. It was clear to us that the park makes a lot of their money on the pricey alcoholic drinks they sell.

I can't put my finger on any specific coaster, but for me just roughness isn't enough to make a bad coaster. Usually roughness comes with age or cheap price, but what makes a BAD coaster for me is something that they spent lots of money on but it ends up having no force, no sense of acceleration, no thrill

but what if it's forceless and rattles?

For sheer scale, Sonny. For pain, Manhattan. For goofiness, pick off the menu of silly Chinese knock-offs. The late Raging Wolf Bobs, pre-rehab, was the most laughably bad coaster experience I've personally had.

^ Took me a few seconds to realize that you were referring to Son of Beast there.

 

Ohhh, that makes more sense. At first I thought it was Sonny from Sonny and Cher. . . You have no idea how confused I was until you cleared it up.
