The Racer

The current version of this description is at The Racer.

This coaster opened in 1972 along with the park itself. It was designed by the famed coaster builder John Allen, and is often credited for launching the coaster wars that we are still experiencing today. The racing coaster presents both a smooth ride and a classic feel. Both sides travel forwards, although the Southern Racer featured backwards-facing trains between 1982 and 2007.
