I liked this one! for some reason I really enjoy it every time I ride it!...I like how it weaves in and out of the trees and it goes pretty fast! It is an enjoyable coaster!

The Mindbender was my first looping roller coaster, and I was less than impressed the first time I rode it. The two vertical loops were so intense that I nearly passed out. Based on that first ride alone, the Mindbender would not score much higher than a 5. Fortunately, I have since decided to give it another try, with much better results. Although the ride is still very intense, I found out that the middle of the train pulls fewer Gs. This makes the Mindbender something that I could enjoy without having to worry about passing out in the loops. As for the rest of the ride, the tilted helix is insane, and the lapbars are always a plus. With all of this in mind, Ill boost my original rating up to an 8.

The ride starts out with a nice sign with a big green question mark. It attracts you in. The line is very nice. Surrounded with trees, which makes it shaded which is wonderful on hot summer days. The seats are very comfortable, along with the lap bars. When you reach the top of the lift hill, you pause for a few seconds. Most of the time you think there are technical difficulties. The loops are unique. Instead of an oblong shaped loop, its more circular, which makes gives a lot stronger Gs.

Schwarzkopf at his BEST! This is my favorite sit-down looper. It is a nice intense ride that really beats down all those Arrow loopers from the same time period. No OTSRs is a plus! Mindbender is a great coaster and the gem of all the SFOG rides. Mindbender was the parks crowning achievement back in the 70s.

Awesomm, Awesome, Awesome! This oldie is still a goodie. Front seat is the best place for this gem, you get two moments of air, one of which a bit horrifying, not to mention the fact that this coaster has 2 of the best loops on earth. The "3rd" loop is shockingly intense and the placement of this ride is awesome.

Awesome ride. I rode it after they repainted it to reflect the Batman theme, and it was intense. The force when you go through the vertical loops literally shoves you into the seat and smooshes your face. Every now and then, the train would seem to hop off the track, which was pretty frightening. The only reason the ride doesnt get a perfect 10 is because for whatever reason, it stopped, stranding us on the incline.

Its been many years since Ive been on this ride, but I remember that I was very pleasantly surprised. This ride proves that a ride doesnt have to break any records or have many fancy elements to be a great experience. Mindbender is easily the best Schwarzkopf looping coaster Ive been on. The ride has a nice pace and a good layout. Its also nowhere near as rough as the Arrow or Vekoma looping coasters. The 2 loops and 1 incline loop are all very exciting. Having only the lap bar restraint adds a lot to the ride as well. I dont know how well this ride has aged, but its definitely a great classic looping coaster that you dont want to miss.

Defenetly what i didnt expect. i seriously thought it would be slow and suck. i loved it! it was fast and intense and going thru the loops with only a lap bar is awesome! This just shows you that u cant judge something without knowing the facts

Best standard looping coaster. The line took forever the day i was there so i was pretty bitter when i got up to the platform. But my mood started to change when i noticed no otsr. That always brings a coaster up 3 points, then the layout was awesome all through the ride fantastic i cant believe it has bee around that long also. Just awesome.

Great ride. I didnt know what to expect because you cant see the ride from the queue, especially at night. It was sort of like riding with your eyes closed as I could not see where the car was going or what the next element was
