[QUOTE=fanofdisney;1058552]I thought that ride (Barnstormer) was worse than BTMRR, more jerky.[/QUOTE]
Really? I’ve found Barnstormer to be a pretty consistent ride in terms of g forces. Even the lift is smooth because they use multiple tires driven by motors instead of a chain lift. And remember that Big Thunder is loaded with “trick track”, those sections where first the left rail lifts then the right rail so your car is thrown side to side, and many quick bumps and drops.
Everyone has their own opinion and your feelings about Barnstormer are yours.
I’m just sorry that you recall it being a jerky ride and I am curious what made you feel that way.
My own opinion of the ride is it’s a fine junior coaster for training padawan learners who are new to the force (of coasters:tongue:). It’s just big enough to make a 5 year old feel like he’s on a big boy ride without being terrifying. Add to that the smoothness of tubular steel track as opposed to wood, like this one at Carowinds currently named Woodstock Express but formerly known as Scooby Doo’s Ghoster Coaster:
