This was B&M's very first coaster. It wasn't mind-blowing, but was cool. I'll ride virtually anything that continually had a less than half hour line.

Very bumpy. The waiting time for the line is not bad, maybe around 10-15 minutes. Standing on the ride was cool but your head will start to hurt because it was so bumpy. The X-Flight replaced it and it would of been better to move the X-Flight somewhere else because the Iron Wolf wasn't too bad. It would just be better to have both rides.

How anyone can give this ride more than a "3" is just beyond me. Sure the loop and corkscrew are fun, but you can ride "Demon" for that. The only difference is that "Iron Wolf" is ping-pong on your head. I'm typically a tough stickler, when people say a ride is "rough", I usually take it pretty well. Not this one. Jerky, rough, and uncomfortable, "Iron Wolf" is that exception. As for complaints on it hurting your crotch, if you adjust your restraint the right way, it's not going to hurt. Well, at least for me it didn't. All in all, this is a ride you can avoid. If you must ride it badly, do it when the line is short. I wouldn't wait more than half an hour for this thing. "Iron Wolf", unless I'm craving on riding another standee, this is the last straw.

I used to love this ride, but somehow over the years it keeps getting more and more painful to ride. It's horribly bumpy and although standing is cool, it needs to be replaced with a better, smoother version. Do not wear a hat; you will lose it.

The Iron Wolf is a steel roller coaster. (Stand Up). It is fun, rerideable, has a long ride duration, large capacity, and nice theming to ride. This is a don't miss when visiting the park.

I had mixed feelings about this. The drop and inversions were very smooth and were actually pretty powerful, but much of the helixes were bumpy and rough. Still, the positives do outweight the negatives.

I was intiminated to go on this, just because of the fact that you stand up. Its actually a very smooth ride, and is pretty good. The only bad part is, positioning the bar when you first get on it. If you dont get it just right, you can hurt your crotch. Another tip is to sit with your head back. It may be cool to sit with your head forward to see everything, but enjoy the view as instructed. The sudden turns can cause your head to get slammed back and forth, where there isnt much padding. A good time to go on this ride is in fall when the trees are changing colors. There is a great scenic view on this ride. The line is never long either.

This is my second favorite stand-up coaster! I really enjoyed it. My favorite part of this ride is when you go through the loop!!

This was my first stand-up coaster! It was a fun ride! I remember the line being long, but it was fun! I remember it weaving through a lot of trees, if that is still the same. It is worth a try!
