Screamin’ Eagle

Experience the joy of coastering in its purest form

Famed roller coaster designer John Allen designed this wooden masterpiece according to his philosophy that a coaster should inspire awe as well as thrills. As you soar through the course of this beautiful and iconic legend, you will feel exactly what the designer intended.

Screamin’ Eagle’s 110-foot height and 62 mile per hour speed were instant Guinness World Records on the day it first opened in 1976 for America’s Bicentennial. But even more than those amazing attributes, this first-class ride was an instant star because of its extraordinary layout and riding experience.

On that first 110-foot climb up the lift hill with nothing to impede your sight, you’re just seeing pure Missouri sky. This wide open view is very inspiring. In fact, you almost forget that you are about to plummet 92 feet down.

As you race down the hill, the whole world seems to open up in front of you as you proceed down a stunning long run of hills through wild country and trees.

You really feel the beauty of flight on this classic coaster, as the course just seems to ride out forever into the wilderness. It’s like you’re not even at a theme park, you’re just racing the wind across the countryside. For a blissfully perfect 3,800 feet of track, you’ll feel the sheer inspiration the designer intended.
