Its not many times these days you get lapbars on loopers. Its a lot of classic fun that is a real contender for best in the park.

This was a fun ride. Its ver quick and has some nice drops. The layout of this ride is spectacular. The second drop is the best part of the ride. Less brake would make this ride similar to a more modern intamin.

A gem! the ride is intence and realy exiting. You look at the lapbars and get a fals sence of security in the mildness off the ride and it smaks you in the face. A must ride. Its good to see this ride still operats in its origanal form, no OTSRs.

Not too much to it - with all of the other more modern, exciting rides in the park. But still, it holds its own, and will surely continue to be a favorite for a long, long time. No matter how many bigger, faster, more thrilling rides SFOG gets, youve gotta ride the Mindbender or your trip is not complete!

Lapbars and loops - still the best combo going. Another ride that surprised me. I expected next to nothing and got much much more!

Just to let you know, this is the first review that I am redoing. I have matured as a reviewed over time, and I am going to go back and spruce them up a bit. What better of a ride to start off with than my first coaster, Anton Scwarzkopfs looping masterpiece, Mind Bender. This steel classic is the worlds first triple-looper, and dont let anybody tell you otherwise. Tucked in between monsterous pines and oaks, this Green Machine (formerly brown, pre-Gotham City) provides a great location for a fantastic, still smooth layout. The first drop is something to remember, to begin with, the coaster barely clears the lift, then it banks to the right and then down you go at 50mph into the first vertical loop, Scwarzkopfs specialty inversions that are among the most intense elements around. You then fly back up into the trees, and you come back out into another clearing, and you enter the world-famous third loop, a horizontal nightmare that pushes the rider to the brink of unconsiousness with more than 4Gs. Once you reach the top of the loop again, you dive down into the aforementioned clearing, and up into the trees again, where stretched riders can grab the branches of the trees on the turn-around. Back down you go, over a small pond into the second of the perfect loops, intense and even better with lap bars -- Anton designed em so you didnt need headbang-inducing OTSRs. As you exit the loop, you are thrust into a brief tunnel, then you turn back towards the station after 2:33 of pure exhilaration, which is now thrilling its second generation of parkgoers. This one may not statistically compare with the Mega Loopers of B&M nowadays, but it will always have a special place in my heart, not only was it my first coaster, but it continues to hover in my Top 10, a ride that will surely be difficult to part with.
In the end, I will stick with my original rating of a 9, for it is truly worthy of such a score, and if you arent pleased at first, one bit of advice: ride it at night.Update #2: Mindbender has been the only coaster to be in my top 10 since joining the site, so I think its worth of a 10.

I have never riden a ride where the loop actualy threw my head down into my lap. I thought that was so funny. It also offers airtime, and when i say airtime i mean you arent expecting it and you better pray your lap bar works or it will send you up and over the small cliff it sits on. This is my favorite ride at SFoG.
