 Review of Raging Bull @ Six Flags Great America
1 Rating Posted by: Ooh Sexy on 8/7/2007 2:10:00 PM
Driving along the highway next to the park you can see this monster of a coaster: Raging Bull. You watch the train full of screaming riders plunge down that incredibly steep drop into nothingness and then pop out into a turn. You think to yourself "I have to get on that thing!" Right when you enter the park you run to the right and enter Southwest Territory where the orange and purple coaster towers above you, the first drop in plain view. It seems more like 300 feet when you look above you. You run into the nice and shaded queue and wait with the other riders eagerly anticipating their ride. Running 3 trains, the line is always moving. As you enter the station I advise you to sit in the back, Ill tell you in a minute why. Sit down in the incredibly comfortable B&M seats and push down that lapbar into your lap. That is all thats saving you from flying off into the atmosphere. All is clear, and youre out. Over a smooth turn and up the 205 ft. hill. Take in the incredible view while you can, or shut your eyes if you dont like heights. Youre at the top! Raging Bull teases you with a small drop at first and then ROARS down the 200 ft. drop! In the back you get extreme ejector air and feel like youre going to fly off! You see the tunnel at the bottom getting closer, closer, youre in darkness for less then a second and youre out! Up into the turn and if youre on the right you will feel like you will fly off into the line of Viper below you. Down a drop and up a huge hill with a trim unfortunately. Killing any airtime you might have had, its still an exciting drop. After that is 2 more turns and up into the MCBR. You have time to catch your breath before you get pulled down into a bunnyhop where it takes your picture. Up and down another bunnyhop, and the rest are turns and helixes. Theres another trim around there somewhere which is unfortunate. Overall its an extremely fun ride with a short wait so there is no reason why you shouldnt ride it when youre at Six Flags Great America.

Great review. Too bad Six Flags has put trims on this coaster.

I think this ride has one of the best first drops out there. Supposedly it was a lot better before they trimmed it.

Yeah I totally agree. The only hyper with a better first drop is GeForce in my opinion. The pre-drop really makes for some amazing airtime.

^ Probably Raging Bulls first drop is similar to the Apollos Chariots outstanding first drop.

I seem to remember Bulls first drop being better than Apollos. But its not like I rode them back to back.

^ Did you ride it before or after they trimmed Raging Bulls first drop?

I was unaware that they trimmed the first drop. I rode it last August.

I agree it has one of the best drops anywhere! I didnt see any trims on the drop however.

Yeah, the first trim isnt until you are going up the 2nd hill...
