Roar

Roar is temporarily closed.

Timeless classic. Modern innovation. Tomorrow’s thrills.

This remarkable piece of thrill ride architecture is truly a thing of beauty. The densely woven wooden structure calls to mind the most classic roller coasters, in a tradition stretching back to when the sport began on fairgrounds at the turn of the last century. In fact, Roar is partly inspired by a train style first invented nearly 100 years ago. However, tradition is forged into an utterly modern cascade of harmonically woven swooping curves, criss-crossing in a warped figure-eight of pure speed and power.

This colossal wooden twister coaster’s epic proportions demand your respect even before you hear the mindblowing stats. It rises 95 feet in the sky, which means you’ll be taking a drop of over 90 feet—and you’ll be taking it at 50 miles per hour. Bolting over this ingenious and intricate structure, you’ll blast through a 180-degree turn that will leave you speechless, but it probably won’t stop you from screaming. It’s right about now that you realize how Roar got its name. Over 3,291 feet of track, you’ll tear through six different reversals and a slew of cross-overs, zigging and zagging back and forth 22 times.

You’ll catch negative G airtime on hill after hill, finally shooting under an endless covered tunnel that’s close overhead.

As the original wooden coaster in Northern California, Roar is a favorite for many. No one will blame you if you just want to stand there and admire it for a few minutes before you ride.
