    I rode it once in the freezing cold in December (my face was numb), so I'd have to guess "yes" for February.

    Its a rough ride. Out of the 70 or so coasters that I have rode. This one is in the bottom 3.

    The one at Circus Circus is better.

    It's like being in a car wreck. It would be best if you were numb from the cold. Hated that coaster and I ride them all. Loved the one that was at Sahara.

    Have to agree, but it has gotten better with the newer cars. The first time I rode it, in 2005, they had a different set of cars and my legs and hips were black and blue the next day.

    Thanks for the input. I think I'll skip it with my bad back but let my son & nephew know.

    My husband and I rode it in July 2011 and I HATED it!!! There is not a roller coaster anywhere I wont ride and most times I love them but this one was horrible, very herky jerky and honestly seemed very unsafe tho im sure its fine. Will never do it again!

    It's nice to ride once simply for the novelty factor, but it's a pretty uncomfortable experience, otherwise. And it's certainly not worth the price, even with coupons.

    Just rode the roller coaster Sunday night and I have to agree it seemed better than it used to be. It still banged you around but not as bad as in the past. I think the ticket price is cheaper than I remember it to be too ($14 this trip).

    I am a big coaster fan, and I like this one a lot. It has a lot of elements in a small place. My wife has a bad back but rode it without problems last spring. This is one thing I am sure to do on every visit. I am 6'3" and never suffered a bruise or injury, yes the cars are a little tight for me, but try finding a coaster that is not.
