Rebel Yell reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Rebel Yell, a roller coaster at Kings Dominion. (The minimum height to ride is 48 inches.)
Written by James Rao
An old school, Philadelphia Toboggan Company, out-and-back, racing wooden roller coaster. In the 1990s, one train was turned around so that one track of the Rebel Yell would run with riders facing forward, whereas the other track had riders facing backward. However, in 2008 both trains were reverted to running forward only.
one of the best wooden coasters... wish they would repaint the darn thing, and kept one side going backwards... - bryan shepard
Although a great woodie and some amazing airtime in the back it has gotten pretty rough! It is better than Grizzly because it has airtime. Worth a ride as long as you don't have your back against the backrest. 8/10 - Edward Morgan
Best woodie in the park. Great airtime on all the hills! 7/10 - Will Gibson
They need to bring this ride back to it's former glory. It needs loads of work/repairs. It just isn't fun to ride anymore. - Brian McClellan
Aww man I hate to see that they've put both trains forward. I so wanted to ride backwards. Guess I've missed my chance now. I let my hubby choose which side & of course, he wanted to go fwd. But all in all it's a pretty good coaster, a bit rough in the 'valleys' though. - Adrienne McDonald
Still not loving the painful woodies! - Jean Seo-Park
This ride was good. It is only worth a less then 10 minute wait though. Grizzly and Hurler are much better. It is just hills. Some banked curves would make this better. Great for first time coaster rider! - John Podles
Considering its age, this coaster still packs a punch. Not the best woodie in the park, but worth a visit. - James Rao
