The Ride was very painful for me and I followed the instructions given for riding. The most painful time were during the drops the rear of me thighs felt like they were trying to explode from the inside. After this ride I was ready to go home. It took a few hours after the ride for my legs to recover. I will say that in comparison my 18 year old son didn't have any issues. I think the park needs to review this ride to come up with the reason and some cautionary guidelines for this ride to prevent the leg pain. I would not attempt this ride ever again.
