This ride used to scare me to death when I was little. My brothers and cousin would run to it happily at a little carnival called Party in the Pines down in Whitmire, SC but I never rode it until many years later. My wife hates the ride as it makes her feel sick. So I rode this one solo. It's much different not having another person especially as you always get "thrown" to the right. I think this one is also faster than the one I was used to at Carowinds in Charlotte, NC. Because by the time it was over, I was long-since ready to get out. I've never had a ride make me vomit before, but I think a few more minutes might have done it.
