    This was back in 2012. It wasn't exactly in my top 10 but possibly in the "so bad it's good category". I think we did it 3 or 4 times during the day, quickly discovering the middle seats in each car were the only acceptable ones.

    Yes, the restraints on T3 aren't the best, but nor was I was subjected to a brain-shattering catastrophic experience that other SLCs offer. I suspect riding it with no expectations whatsoever aided in having somewhat of a neutral view of it, whereas I've been significantly let down when promised that certain SLCs aren't as bad when in reality, they're awful.

    Besides, even KK themselves take the royal p*ss out of T3. It needs to stay purely for the park's social media meme content.

    I'll be dancing in the street the day Insane at Grona Lund is scrapped.

    Green Lantern at Six Flags Great Adventure. Can't even do the obvious floor less conversion because they've already got one.

    Ah yes, this monstrosity. In hindsight, it probably wasn't the best idea to ride it on the back row. Another complete back breaker at the bottom of every drop!

    I'm planning to go to Movie Park next year so errr I doubt it will have been RMCed by then so I'll go in expecting the worse and maybe it might just not be so bad:p

    Coaster Express at Parque Warner is not only a very boring rollercoaster in terms of layout, it basically tries to vibrate your teeth out of your gums. Burn it down.

    Condor at Walibi Holland, well this rode far worse than I actually expected and that is saying something for an SLC. It just seems to shuffle and shunt its way around the track. I can’t remember which particular inversion it was but I think it was the sidewinder that the trains basically just slam into. Awful.

    It's not that bad. It's been retracked within the last few years and isn't too bad, in fact it rides better than Robin (in da) Hood did and Loup-Garou does at their respective Walibi parks. I still found it a bit uncomfortable but not horrendous.

    I just find it hilarious how even Ed Hart acknowledges how bad T3 is but says he has to keep it to please the GP from what i saw at Keys to the Kingdom. They have got the best twitter out of any park though imo and taking the p*** out of T3 is just a big highlight :D

    My most recent ride on Big One genuinely made me angry it was so uncomfortable. Couldn't wait for it to end.

    Not sure if want it removed because realistically there's nothing they could directly replace it with.

    Cedar Creek Mine Ride is the only other ride that comes to mind in terms of it being disgustingly bad. Could fit a decent family GCI in that space.

    Coaster Express was strange, 1st time I rode it (2nd row I think) it just seemed inoffensively bland. Then the next day on the front row it was horrid, felt like the train was shaking apart.

    My last few rides on it have been the same. I'm 6ft 5 so it doesn't leave me much room in those trains with those restraints sadly.

    However the ride experience is just not fun. It rattles and shakes way too much. It need a hell of a lot of work doing to it to bring back to anything like its best days.
