The Boss

The current version of this description is at The Boss.

When it opened in 2000 The Boss was considered one of the top wooden coasters in the country (the 2010 Amusement Today listing has The Boss at #31 among wooden coasters). Standing 122 ft. tall this coaster features a 150 ft. double down first drop and three more like it throughout the course. Hitting speeds of over 66 mph The Boss is one of the fastest wooden coasters in the world (currently the 4th fastest while Son of Beast is not operating), and at over 5050 feet, one of the longest as well (9th).

This formerly rough coaster received some much needed re-tracking love before the 2009 season.

The Boss is a Flashpass attraction. -- Last edited by James Rao on September 16, 2010
