During the first drop of 208 ft. of track there is a lot of intensity and a huge reason of why it is 73 mph. After it banks you into the first turn the ride is pretty average and it doesnt appear to be worth the wait. Still a great ride and it deserves a 9.

Raging Bull is an absolutely fantastic hyper coaster. After my recent rides on this beast, it has displaced Apollos Chariot as my #3 coaster. The airtime is terrific on every hill, the turns are great fun in the very open B&M hyper trains, and the ride just generally moves with great speed and grace throughout its entire course. The final hills and turns provide some great forces without being overbearing, and the train still has a lot of speed coming into the brake run, which is almost always a good sign in my experience. If you only get to ride 1 coaster at SFGAm, make sure this is it - its easily my favorite at the park, and that is really saying something considering how much I enjoy most of the coasters at this amazing park.

Oh, its a classic speed (hyper) coaster. A classic. So smooth, the first drop into the tunnel, and awesome air over the first drop if you sit in the back. The trims are a bit annoying, but they dont do a whole lot and you still get some good floater air over that camel. The ride is still almost TOO smooth, as it is the same ride each time. But that is sometimes the problem with Viper: You may not get such an amazing ride sometimes. Here, you know that every back seat ride is going to go just about the same speed with about the same amount of air, as the trims dont seem to fluctuate much at all. And the twistiness here is nice. You can really get some amazing ejector air on the first drop and off of the brake run and into that next camel. Again, this and Viper are just so close that I cant tell which I like better. Still a solid 9.

This is a great coaster, but I cant justify putting it at a 10 because it just doesnt rank up in my list that high. I would rate Raging Bull, Millenium Force and Phantoms Revenge just a .1 below one another just because they are all so different but all have great qualities and a couple of drawbacks. The drawback to Raging Bull is that it really lacks intensity in the turns, and the g forces are just not very strong. But the airtime is great! That first drop in the back is heaven, and in the back the airtime on the 3rd dropis still great even with the heavy trim. Raging bull offers 7 great moments of airtime, which is surprising to the twister nature of the ride.

Basically all I know from roller coasters is Great America, but I think that Raging Bull has got to be one of the best coasters. Generally after the first drop, the coaster becomes shit, but not here. The WHOLE ride is great. For max airtime sit in the back seat, its great.

Nice looking ride. I was hesitant at first to get in line cause I thought that the wait was an hour. But the line moves really fast. I rode it 3 times. Great elements on this ride and very comfortable.

damn this ride is still the best!!!!!! first drop=PURE AIRTIME but the rest of the ride was all good after that, plus the lines arent even that long, when i went they were only about 30-40 minutes

If you love airtime,Raging Bull is perfect for you. The 1st drop is 202 feet high and drops you 207 feet. The angle of decent is perfect because it pulls you from youre seat to get some incredible airtime! Sit in the back to get the best air during the entire ride. If you want to try something cool, touch your toes on the first drop. The lines can get long on busy summer days, but when 3 trains are being used, the line can move very quickly. This is one of the best coasters that should not be missed.

This ride is very similar to my favorite ride, Apollos Chariot. However, this ride just didnt do it for me. I think its top speed was something like 70 mph. For some reason, it felt more like speeding down the freeway going 70 mph than a roller coaster. But I really like being up in the sky and I really like the restraints too.
