The first drop is decent, but sadly this feels like the slowest and most forceless single coaster in existance. I really dont want to give it a one, but Ive given coasters that actually have some type of force or sense of attitude to it in a negative way a 1 or 2. Pretty bumpy and in a sad state since it cant be fixed by lightening brakes. I think this will be the first coaster Ill ever have to say tear it down to as long as it is replaced with another woodie which the park is in desperate need for.

Ok layout, but way too rough, the seats need to be bigger and more comfier and a better restraint system.

This ride sucked! When you are in line, you see these people coming back from Grizzly walking like they peed there pants. The rollercoaster SLAMMS your butt on the train, causeing it hard to walk cuz your butt is so sore. Avoid it dudes. I reccomend Stealth.

This ride was lame the day it opened, got worse with the reprofiling done over the years, and to top it off hasnt been retracked in so long, you can see the steel strips on the track coming off the wood underneath in places. It is ridiculously rough, slow, and only minor upkeep must be going on since the structure is full of cobwebs!

Worst ride Ive ever been on. Not intense at all, too bumpy. They should tear it down and put a hyper coaster there instead. It goes way too slow over the first 180 turn. It doesnt seem safe. -Eric,

The ride gets rough at times but the hills provide great airtime and a good first drop. It slows down after a while though.

This is nowhere near the Grizzly that PKD has over in Virginia. It is not overly fast and was extremely rough for a while, but the park seems to have fixed that issue. However, the have also slowed it down. They should get rid of it and build another woodie.
