Worst Arrow coaster

What do you think is the worst Arrow coaster ever? I say Corkscrew at Michigan's Adventure.

Diamondback @ Frontier City gets my vote

Corkscrew @ Michigan's Adventure - 1
Diamondback @ Frontier City - 1
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

The now gone, but not missed Orient Express was pretty damn bad!

And that thing I rode at Ocean Park the other day was right up there also.

I seem to remember getting off of Vortex at PKI thiinking that it was the rougest steel coaster I'd ever ridden. I didn't ride it on my last trip there...and I can certainly say that a few SLCs and boomerangs have taken over the bottom few spots, but I'd still say Vortex takes it as worst Arrow.

GASM at SFGAdv. What a giant assed pile of crap.

The Corkscrew at MI at least has the unique feature of having the track run through some guy's garage... :P

I'd probably say Demon at Six Flags Great America is the roughest one, however, it's still a really fun ride. If they would just reprofile the the drop off the midcourse/entrance to corkscrews, it would be fun. That's the only rough spot, but it's very bad.

Suprisingly, Shockwave was very smooth for my ride. It was also very intense, and very smooth. It was as smooth as Kraken at Sea World (I know, unbelievable.) But, I'm telling you, if you sit in the back car of the Arrow multi-loopers, it's smooth. (I think the trailer is back there, which makes it smoother.) I guess that technique also works on Ninja at SFOG. Can anyone confirm that?

In comparison, I've been on:
Shockwave, Six Flags Great America
Demon, Six Flags Great America
Cedar Creek Mine Ride, Cedar Point
Gemini, Cedar Point
Corkscrew, Cedar Point
Magnum XL-200, Cedar Point
Python, Busch Gardens Tampa

^I have ridden Shockwave many times in the back and I never had a smooth ride. The front isnt as bad as the back. In the back you get whipped around all of the turn and inversions which makes your head slam more.
