I great wooden coaster that shouldn't be missed. Yes it's kinda bumpy in spots but riding in the Millenium Flyer trains is just like sitting in a lazy boy chair. So comfortable!!

This is a nice GCI woodie. The drop was excellent. It was also sort of rough. I liked it though one of my favorites.

Roar is another decent coaster, but it has seen better days. The coaster is a very typical of GCI, not a piece of straight track to be found. Unfortunately, the ride is very rough. The trains had nice padding, but I was still in a bit of pain. Sadly, this is typical of most GCI coasters nowadays.

Roar is a perfect example of a GCI wooden coaster. I dont know if there was a section of straight track anywhere to be found. Rather, it was all beautifully flowing curves and hills, one right after another. The duration is quite long as well. Dare I venture out on a limb and say that I felt this ride was actually more intense than Ghostrider at Knotts and even (here it goes) Psyclone at Magic Mountain? Roar was brand new to me unlike those other two, which Ive ridden countless times, so I really wasnt able to prepare for any of the manuevers. That was probably the reason for the intensity encountered. I also think the restraints played a part, as they were not the most comfortable things in the world. Regardless, these are really not complaints, because, as Ive said before, I expect (and even look forward to) roughness and intensity from wooden coasters. It was just somewhat of a surprise to me because I can remember the one or two other GCIs that I have ridden to be exceptionally smooth. Nonetheless, Roar was still a great coaster experience.

this mean machine desserves a ten all the way, besides Giant Dipper its the best woodie ever, simply amazing from beginning to end, it never lets go of you until youre back at the station, simply awsome.

A nice, smooth wooden coaster with great speed and banking. This was the very first wooden coaster with the types of trains it uses that I have been on, and I was very impressed. I loved going through the shed. Best of all was there wasnt much of a line!

A classic wooden recoaster remade. All the curves, twist, and air time to make a fun thrilling coaster.

This is a fun woodie. It is surprisingly smooth(about 15 times smoother than Grizzly at PGA)and full of surprises.

This is the best woodie ive ever been on(its not the only one) It is padded perfectly and its not too rough except at the bottom of the 2nd drop(its been like this for only a few years) so brace your self at that part but the rest just is great!
