Not smooth by any means, but was still better than I expected. Hey, a credit is a credit.

A bit smoother than Thunderhawk at GL, but still a killer in terms of headbanging. These rides are such worthless piles of junk...although I have to hand it to Vekoma, the footchoppers during the in-line-twists are stunning

This is the most uncomfortable coaster Ive ever ridden. It wasnt fun at all, and Ill never ride again.

Ladies and gents, this is my least favorite SLC. Without trying to sound too much like my Great Noreaster review, I really do try to like these things. However, this one possessed that remarkable roughness that these things have become notorious for. I spent more time collecting myself than actually enjoying the decent inversions. I couldnt even pay attention to the awesome effects as I was just trying not to get knocked out. In reality, this ride sucks, but its not even the most painful in the park... helllooo Batwing

After being impressed with T2 just a month ago and after comming off the ride happy three years ago, I was expecting big things from this SLC. Well, I got off with a horrible taste in my mouth and with a new name for the ride: Ear Eraser. None of my ride partners that day were impressed with Ear Eraser also. The roughness really starts after the first inversion. Well, actually during, but it gets really bad after that. The turns are brutal and even my favortie inversion types: the heartline rolls were not fun on this thing. Not only was there headbanging (all though with me, it was more ear-banging) the coaster was extremely shaky, bumpy and all in all just not running well at all yesterday. Vekoma SLCs have a great layout, and I still do love T2, but that layout isnt even enough to salvage this thing from being two notches below average for me. The roughness actually ruined the ride for me, and I am usually a high-tollerance rider. My ears were the same color as erasers after the ride, thus the name. Props for the cool ride-opps and two train opperation, but I would have much rather prefered that on any of the other steel coasters than this piece of crap.

Its rough, ridiculously rough. After the brakes when the train is coming back to the station, it is so rough even then that on the turn into the station at 5mph your ears are slammed painfully against the OTSRs. The OTSRs smell like a thousand other peoples hair goo, perfume, sweat, Hawaiian Tropic, etc. I came off smelling like another person and considering plastic surgery to have my ears pinned back. To minimize the pain, I spent most of the ride concentrating on ok, Ill just lean my head to the side resting on the restraints so I cant be bashed around - still didnt work. Never again.

The Mind Eraser is a steel coaster with 5 inversions. (Inverted, SLC) It was built by Vekoma in 1995. Its 105 feet high and has a 85 foot drop. Its 2,200 feet long. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

It was my first inverted coaster so i thought it was cool. Now that i have been on some others it isnt that great because of the roughness but i love compact coasters. And this one makes you feel like you are going to hit your legs on the track. Pretty good affect so i give this an 8 and a half and i always move things up so i give this coaster a 9.

Now that it is sponsored by Slim Jim, Mind Eraser sports a nice new fresh coating of paint (orange and yellow of course). Now all it needs is the Macho Man as a ride operator because that is about what it would take for me to get back on this thing on my next trip to the park. The only real reason that I rode this was because I wanted to compare it to the one in New England. I was kind of forcing myself on this thing, and I kind of regretted it once I was on it. The only thing that I really like about this ride is that it has a really cool and quirky layout with some really good foot choppers. The only thing about that is that I dont think that there is anyway that a train could ever make its way through that smoothly at all, even if it were a B&M track. Im sure that if the opportunity comes about at another park I will hop on one of these just to see if they get any better than the ones that I have been on, but this one is off limits unless it is a walk-on or something. Either that or Ill go on it if I feel like punishing myself or something. Its not really that it is painful, it is just something that makes my ears burn for 30 minutes after getting off of it. Even the turn going into the station after the brakes jolts your head a little bit, which cant be a good sign. Anyway, stay away from this if you are not up for a beating and dont really have any brain cells to spare. The only reason it gets points with me is because of the neat layout, and thats about it.
