This ride is a mite rough, but very, very enjoyable. Not bad air, and a pretty well-rounded ride.

I am a hill guy and twists just don&#39.t go with me.

Second favorite woodie in the park. The Waynes World theming was pointless in my opinion, but the ride was relatively smooth throughout and the first drop gave great air, as did most of the following few bunny hills.

Back in 2006, I rode the Hurler just after it was retracked and it was one of my favorite wooden coasters. The coaster flew through its course and delivered a hearty dose of air-time. However when I returned this year, the Hurler let me down and now is merely average. The ride still maintains really good speed throughout the course, but I only got air-time on a few hills. Thankfully the coaster is still reasonably smooth except for some jackhammering on the low-to-the-ground turns at the far ends of the coaster. Definitely give the Hurler a whirl since it is usually a walk-on and gives a solid ride.

The scenery is nice. The coaster gives a pretty decent ride with a unique layout and some airtime. It does not wow you, but it is an all around good ride.

I will currently give Hurler a 4 because I think its the worst wooden at PKD. Ive never been to PKD as an enthusiest (but many times as a "regular" guest) so I really cant give you a good description, (Gs, headchoppers, turns, pain, etc.) but I do remember that Hurler isnt a bad coaster, but it deffinitely isnt a good one either.

EDIT: Man was I wrong about Hurler. On Saturday at PKD I got BY FAR THE BEST wooden coaster rides at PKD on Hurler. I believe that the 2006 retracking must have helped this ride leaps and bounds, because I got a very nice ride with some insane laterals and some very good airtime on ALL the hops. No, there was not a whole lot of air on any hop, but wow, was it nice to have a whole ride filled with airtime. The first drop even has a little air, mixed with some good positive Gs on the base of the drop. I remember Hurler being very rough last time, but on Saturday the only rough part was the second to last turn around, but even that was alright. The first turn is banked, but by no means are the lateral Gs hurt by it because when I tried to leave my hands in the air on that turn, half of my body shifted from the right seat to the left seat! That moment totally made my day. This ride looks a lot like Thunder Run at SFKK, which I rode a couple weeks ago, and this isnt quite as good. The airtime over the first half of TR is a lot better, but the thing about Hurler is it has air over the whole ride. I found it totally re-ridable, even in the back seat, and I got 4 rides in a row on Hurler Saturday. The ride also has some theme left over (specifically in the station) even though most has been removed. Still its well-themed for a wooden.

So anyway, I dont know what I was thinking giving this a 4, maybe this ride has gotten better or I have just changed my mind. Whatever the reason Hurler seems to be a good ride now.

Hurler is a two-faced wooden coaster. The one face features some awesome ejector air on most of the hills and a wild ride to boot. The other face features some brain shaking sharp turns. If the ride had been any rougher than it was, it would have lost a point. However, any coaster with that much air deserves at least a 7 in my book. So ride this if like being tossed out of your sit, but watch out for those turns!

A good coaster with good airtime but rough around the first turn.

Since this isnt a popular ride, the line is always short. This is a nice wooden coaster and quite rough (for me, rough is fun). Quite a bit of turns that knock you pretty hard and an overall good wooden rollercoaster experience. The walkway to get to the ride though is the longest walkway in the entire park which is pointless since there arent enough people who ride this to require such a long walkway.
