When it opened in 2000 The Boss was considered one of the top wooden coasters in the country (the 2014 Amusement Today listing has The Boss at #48 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, and at over 5050 feet, one of the longest as well.


Ten years ago, this was my favorite ride at SFSL and one of my favorite coasters overall. When I returned in 2015, the ride had gotten quite a bit rougher, and I could no longer handle multiple rides like I had before. It has a great layout with some unique elements, and I still really like this coaster. It's just vibrating a little too much these days.
