It can be wild. There's always tamer options in the park. I won't pretend that there's anything as exciting or worth the endurance for however.I happen to agree with you, and like the analogy.
Nonetheless, it's a wild ride on this coaster and you never know when it's going to break down right in the middle of the ride...
Man, I hate it when that happens.
This is the Dragon Coaster at Playland in Rye, NY. It is a 1929 wooden structure, now on the National Register of Historic Places. The dragon is a tunnel mid-way thru the ride, you go in the mouth and out the tail.
I won't go on any coaster or other ride that turns you upside down.
Sounds dated, but this coaster is a helluva thrill!
...and we know when to go so the cue is almost non-existent.
(This one has the extra creds of someone having died on it!)

I would prefer the hopper to breakdown than an actual ride or most anything else I own. A downed hopper is actually not enough to prevent anything. It's merely frustrating and can take a long time to be brought back from out of order.
I haven't even had the io for 12 months but it feels like way more. With two of them and two remaining legacies one of which is flawless for more than 3 years, the tickets to ride aren't going to run out anytime soon and I'm never getting trapped upside down.
Sticking to the tame options isn't viable for my fuckcombustioning.
