The American Eagle

The current version of this description is at The American Eagle.

Great family coaster. The American Eagle is a classic double racing wooden coaster that is celebrating over 20 years of operation. The Blue side DOES NOT run backwards anymore.

Update: SFGAm WILL run backwards blue, but it's ultimately up to the park's discretion to do so or not throughout the year (running that side increases the wear and tear on the train and track). -- Last edited by Eric Stumpf on February 7, 2014
