Judge Roy Scream reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Judge Roy Scream, a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas. (The minimum height to ride is 42 inches.)
Written by Michael Sherlock
A wooden coaster that covers nearly eight acres, and hits a top speed of 50 mph. It's a classic out and back coaster next to a lake. This was SFOT's first wooden coaster named after the legendary Judge Roy Bean "The Law West of the Pecos".
Fun out and back woodie. It is a long walk to get to the ride which appears completly unattached from the rest of the park. Good airtime, little bumpy. But that is what should be expected on a ride like this one. I enjoyed that it was over by the lake. Solid out and back in my opinion. (8/10) - Lexi R
My fave woodie! I LUV LUV This ride. When we went to the park, a t-storm came up & I thought we'd not get to ride it since I missed out on it the first time I went but I did get to ride & it was actually close to closing time & we got to ride as many times as we wanted. I got up to 5 but then had to move on to something else. This coaster is really smooth for a woodie. I prefer the back on this one as the front didn't seem as smooth but it's another one of those medium woodies that pack a good ride but not too rough or too 'thrilling' for the weaker stomachs. Good family ride. - Adrienne McDonald
A signature of the park, the coaster is very prominent outside of the entrance, overlooking the lagoon. Six Flags does need to spruce it up a bit since it is one of the first things you see when you get there. The ride itself is OK. I sat near the front and didn't think it was as rough as many people say. - Carl Stovall
This "classic" wooden coaster is old, short, and painful. And despite it being a classic, the Judge still requires some upkeep from time to time. Come on, Six Flags, give this coaster a paint job and some retracking love before it paralyzes someone! - James Rao
Pain! Need some maintenance. Other than the nostalgia value this coaster offer no thrills. Could use some of the love applied to Texas Giant. - Rocklin Terrell
