As an update....

As much as I love this creation and it remains my top pick as a first ride whenever I enter the park, I notice it getting progressively rougher as the years pass, and little maintenance is being sone to improve this problem. The experience itself is as insane and eye - watering as always, however a full 10 is not deserved at this point IMO.

As said previosly, the head - choppers are amazing and the airtime, provided you are restrained by those darned G - Trains, has the potential to be stunning.

I would lower my rating to an 8 due to the lack of maintanance, however it is not at an unbearable point yet, and be prepared, because it will take a level of guts to re - ride this monster two times in a row.

This coaster is great on so many different levels. In the back this coaster is about as rough as GhostRider (Dont jump on me, GhostRider needs to be retracked). After the Boss I was worried but this coaster proved to be great. In the back seat you get great airtime on the first drop, the second drop, the DROP and some good floating o nthe bunny hops, but in the back the turns, and the trick track are a little sucky. But in the VERY front seat it is almost perfectly smooth, the speed is great and you get arguably the best airtime on any coaster on the second hill, you are ejected and float al lthe way over it. The bunny hops/ turns are great, giving you some of the mast intense airtime/ leteral gs. I loved the layout, I loved the turning bunny hops, and I loved the airtime. With a 7 car ptc coaster this would rocket to the top of the wood coaster list, but with the Gers. trains it will have to settle with top 20. It is a great woodie that rivals GhostRider, but not as good as Raven or Cornball.

I thought this ride surprised me the most at this park. I loved it, and the first drop is so steep, you dont see any track until your on it. Great ride, once again walked onto the front seat.

Good solid wooden coaster. Nothing struck me as special about it, although it did have some good ejector air in the front (although airtime in the back seemed to be almost non-existent). I think PTC trains would make this a GREAT big wooden coaster ... but as it stands, its decent wild wooden ride, but nothing stellar. UPDATE: When I road this coaster earlier this month, it was runing on a hotter day (and therefore a bit faster). There was INDEED airtime in the back seat and a nice dose of it. Not up to Cornball or Raven standards, but still an excellent few shots.

Rough but fast and had a pretty nice layout I think.

Times ridden: 5+ ~ Ride experience: 7 ~ Layout: 10 ~ Thrill factor: 9 ~ Airtime: 9 ~ Landscaping: 9 ~ Evaluation: Villain went from being one of my favorie wooden coasters down to one of my least favorites in just four years. The ride is filled with airtime and non-stop hills and turns. Too bad the ride is painful as heck. The massive structure and incredible layout make Villain seem like a perfect wooden coaster, but thatll never be until the park changes the horrible G-trains.

This ride is good and does have speed, but I thought it was very rough. I had a headache for about an hour after riding it, but if it was just a little smoother it would be a great coaster!

This is one rough ride- but that is good. The layout of the track does a breat job of tricking your mind. You will turn a corner and get the impression that the track will vere right- but then it goes left. You are gonna get slammed around a lot on this one- so be prepared!

This ride has the best layout but the worst trains. A ride this good doesnt deserve plastic trains like Gerstlauer! I think it would be only semi-rough if they replaced the trains, but until then, youre gonna see everyone walking off the ride with their hands on their heads talking about a headache!
