    Intensity Layout Rattle Capacity Discomfort

    Nighthawk to me is a bad but necessary coaster at carowinds. What i mean by this is it makes sense why its there and it has many reasons that it is bad, but also some reasons that it is good. While i dislike it i can see why someone could like it, the ride has intensity and a solid layout that really helps keep this coaster from being my least favorite of all time. I think the nausea factor was what bothered me the most, and add the discomfort and you get an unhappy guest in my experiance. That all being said I encourage you to ride this ride and form your own opinion on it as everyone in your group may think differently about it.

    Nice surprise! Comfort Rattle Capacity

    Nighthawk was far better than I was expecting. Nighthawk isn't the best coaster ever, but it's a pretty solid depth coaster. I rode in the back row and felt a small rattle being absorbed by the seat pretty well. The seat was actually fairly comfortable. The vertical loop was outstanding. Nighthawk does suffer from long lines though, so be sure to hit it up early.

    Nice surprise! Pace Fun Capacity

    An astounding surprise. Back row, middle seat, and it didn't feel rough in the slightest. Fantastic layout and stunts. I had a one-in-a-million night ride on this thing and I'd do it all again in a heartbeat.

    Inversions Nice surprise! Location Rattle Harness

    The first Flying Dutchman, and first real flying coaster, Nighthawk is far better than most people say it is. While the restraints are indeed pretty awkward and the track rattles like hell, there's still a lot to love about this revolutionary flying coaster. The layout flies predominantly low, skimming the pond that it's situated over; the layout also squeezes in a healthy amount of inversions, along with an intense vertical loop that almost feels like a pretzel loop on a B&M flyer on about the last third or so of the loop (especially in the back). Another element that really stuck out to me was the corkscrew towards the end, which was really unique and interesting in a flying position. With all of its faults, this classic still has a lot to give even today; here's to hoping that this example of this very rare model sticks around for years to come.

    Nice surprise! Intensity Discomfort

    Surprisingly fun when ridden in the right seat. (Front, middle two seats, every other seat is terrible)

    Inversions Nice surprise! Rattle Capacity Reliability

    MUCH better than people say it is! It's not one of "the most painful rides in the world" as people sometimes say, but it certainly does feel like the train could fall apart at any moment. The restraints don't bother me that much, but the capacity is so awful. The longest line in the park when I went at 30-45 minutes, and it was a Thursday when school was still in session! I can't think of any other ride where the number of people in line (had to be less than 250) was that long of a line!

    Location Capacity Harness Discomfort

    The only good thing about this coaster is the needlessly gorgeous landscape, and its status as the first proper flying coaster. The line moves slow, the loading is slow, the capacity sucks, and it's the most uncomfortable I've ever been on a coaster. Crappy ride.

    Harness Discomfort

    The Vekoma Flying Dutchmen are... ok. I'm not a fan of the flying position overall, the restraint system of the Vekomas causes long loading/unloading times and they all lack the Pretzel loop (which is the only thing a flying coaster is worth for).
