Firehawk is rather rough, and I must admit that it is not my favorite type of flying coaster.  However, it is not my least favorite flying coaster either.  That distinction belongs to the "Volare" flying coaster model built by Italy's Zamperla.  I have ridden five of the eight "Volare" rides: Soarin' Eagle (formerly Flying Coaster), Super Flight, Time Warp (formerly Tomb Raider: The Ride), Trombi, and Volare at Wiener Prater (pictures coming in early 2015).  I didn't have fun on any of them.
