I went on Boulder Dash, it was pretty intense. The hills were kind of sickening, but the worst part is when you come down from that airtime. Your teeth rattle around in your skull... Other than that, it was awesome. My friend and I had an unspoken agreement that neither of us would scream. I think he was close on a few occasions though. :D

if you go on Bizarro, then you can pretty much ride every floorless coaster in the world. Most floorless models are similar to bizarro. And Nitro...if I got used to airtime then i would ride it. Apollo's Chariot 9at Busch gardens) and Colossus (6 Flags Magic Mountain) both almost made me puke >.<

It means a collection of blood on the surface of the brain due to trauma. It is very unlikely to happen to you.

BTW if you're ever in VA, stop by and check out King's Dominion and Intimidator 305! 305 feet, 93 MPH, and most riders black out on the first curve :D I sure did.

Agreed. It was pretty smooth and the airtime was somewhat enjoyable :P

Nitro was the first roller coaster I ever went on and I loved it.

My sister went to Great Adventure with some friends recently and while she loved Bizarro and one other ride (Batman?), Nitro terrified her and made her cry. I still don't understand how she could hate going up and down with no loops, but go figure.

It was probably the massive amount of airtime; I certainly would be sick riding it :P

Although Bizarro does have a decent amount of airtime on the diving loops, etc.

no i didnt. i said that there's a possibility of getting a subdural hematoma, and that chance is increased when there are high g-forces. for example, goliath at six flags magic mountain has extremely high g-forces on one of its helixes. in fact, some people black out during that helix.

ANYWAY yeah i love roller coasters. i've been to busch gardens williamsburg, dorney park, and hersheypark so far. i'm going to six flags great adventure next week! :D

i've been on 7 steel coasters: apollo's chariot (B+M hyper), loch ness monster (arrow special looper), hydra (B+M floorless), talon (B+M invert), great bear (B+M invert), sooperdooperlooper (schwarzkopf looper), and sidewinder (vekoma boomerang). (yes, i can tell what kind of coaster it is by looking at it. its not that hard, really.)
