very popular view amongst roller coaster enthusiasts is a preference
for wooden coasters over steel. A few years back I would have agreed,
since then though I've become less sure. Shortly after riding Balder,
(Liseberg) my all time favourite coaster, a wooden coaster, this and my
second favorite coaster Thunder Coaster (Tusenfryd) put woodies in the
lead. Since then though I've traveled around more of Europe, and have
done more woodies. Instead of riding more woodies that made the list of
my all time top coasters I found most new woodies I rode ranked behind
growing list of favourite steelies. I find that the absolute best
woodies rank ahead of the absolute best steel, but after these 2 or 3 coasters steel outranks wood by a long way.
Another factor that influences fans of woodies is they can highlight a
lot of rough and uncomfortable steel coasters to argue their
inferiority. Well it turns out woodies can be rough and uncomfortable
as well, and in this case worse than most of the rough steel.
you might have gathered this one is bad to ride. From the first drop to
the final breaks it's continuous rough shaking that makes it a terrible
ride. It doesn't just reduce the amount of enjoyment, but makes riding
it a thoroughly unpleasant experience. It's so bad that having ridden
it once I can't envision any circumstances in which I'm likely to ride
it again. With so many great rides at Parque Warner there is no reason
to take up time riding this.
