Written by James Rao
A $14 million Bollinger & Mabillard inverted coaster that was added to the park in 2006. Includes the following features: 149' lift hill, a 125' first drop, a top speed of 60 mph, a 90' vertical loop, a zero-g roll, an Immelmann loop, and a corkscrew.
A separate front-row only line is occasionally open.
Great invert !! 9/10 - Owen Scott
Smooth, smooth, smooth. This B&M is powerful, gives the sensation of flight, and executes the zero g rolls beautifully. I love the theme and the paint is still nice and bright. Favorite invert. (10/10) - Lexi R
The Patriot is not the best B&M coaster in the world, but it is a very good ride and one of the best attractions in the park. Smooth and exciting, with lots of twists, turns, inversions, and some nice airtime, it is a real winner. - James Rao
FABULOUS! - Kelly Comstock
This is a very good B&M Inverted. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but it does everything great. It was fun to ride it on July 4th too! You feel extra patriotic ;-). 9/10 - Blake Nieman
