Overrated Schwarzkopf - yes I just said that. I dont get the love for this thing, its a decent family ride, and yes, it would have been a cool first coaster. However, it doesnt make it any more thrilling for me now, and I just cant buy into this coasters nostalgia. Some say its like the parks mine train - well, even there, I would merely rank it in the middle of the mine trains I have been on. Fun, smooth, weird operations (train couldnt dispatch till the other was on the brakes, induced stacking - but at least they ran 2 on a light day) and overall an enjoyable but not great ride.

Times ridden: 2 ~ Ride experience: 8 ~ Appearance: 9 ~ Thrill factor: low->medium ~ Airtime: low ~ Reride factor: medium->high ~ Evaluation: My two rides on Whizzer were a blast! I wouldve gone more, but the lines tend to move really slow, a downside to the ride. The ride is a classic that features only seatbelts as restraints, giving the riders a feeling of freedom and also uncertainty, an upside to the ride. Riders whizz through the trees and over water, an experience that can be compared to a mine train coaster, only better. Considering its age, you really wonder why they dont build them like they used to. Despite the rumors about Whizzers removal, Id be devestated if they removed it. The ride is so much fun, and perfect for those who are just starting to experience roller coasters.

a unique coaster but not a good one. You get tossed side to side quite a bit and that could be fun if it doesnt turn painful. (Caveat: I was nursing a bad cold/headache on this day so I might have been over sensitive but I didnt find any of the other SFGAm rides too rough). It is very slow loading but the sailing through the trees semi saves this ride.

I enjoyed this quite a bit more then I had expected. Its not the zambezi zinger by any means, but its not the nothing coaster some claim it to be. This was pure sweet fun. It has good speed for a family ride as well as fun turns and banking. It was also fun to lean and become "one with the coaster" Plus, you can ride with your honey in your arms... If ya have one The thing I enjoyed most about whizzer was how loud it was. This makes more noise than any roar ive ever heard from B&M! I have many great memories of this ride... and one extremely nasty one. We were waiting for the second car. The group in front of us went to board and as 2 young boys were about to sit down, they noticed something. Something that made them scream and say oooh gross! We figured someone had thrown up but it was much worse. Laying in the back seat was a used tampon. Oh my God! I cant believe someone would even do that. What in the world was that chick doing during the ride?! It has to be one of the most bizzare and disgusting things Ive ever seen on a ride. Naturally, it provided foder jokes for the rest of the night. Wow, back to whizzer... Once again, I really like this ride. I like the layout and the area it travels through. Its not the biggest or most thrilling coaster ever built, but its loads of fun and is historically significant. I hope they never take it down. I had quite a scare a few years back. Im very glad its still here.

This is a good ride for a kids coaster, still interesting and gets some speed.

Never been on a lift hill like this one. It would be a great first coaster for any ones kids. I hope they keep this one up for a long time.

Im giving Whizzer a 9 because its very unique and very fun. I was expecting a nice slow family ride and was pleasently surprised to find that its an exciting ride that whips you around tight turns and goes pretty fast through the woods. Overall a lot of fun, but not too intense.

I was disappointed when I heard they were gonna take Whizzer down. It was my 1st roller coaster Ive been on and for a long time the only one I would go on. It has to be a good ride if it has one of the longest lines in the park! I think its a nice relaxing ride. Im glad they decided to keep it up!

Its a fun family ride, but its nothing special. Going through the forest like it does is fun, and there are a couple good headchoppers, depending on how big the the trees are.
