Prowler was the recipient of Amusement Today's Golden Ticket for the Best New Amusement Park Ride of 2009, and is currently ranked as the 12th best wooden coaster on the planet (Amusement Today 2014).
Additionally, Prowler took second place in the 2009 Theme Park Insider Best New Attraction voting.
Fast and fun. Full of airtime and just enjoyable as heck. Just as good as its brother in the same state, American Thunder. The best ride in the park. 9/10
This coaster is smooth as silk, and fast as lightning. It hugs the terrain and turns on a dime, sweeping through the course effortlessly. While Prowler is not the best wooden coaster I have ever ridden (Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City holds that honor), it is an excellent ride. Be sure to ride this coaster at night because there is complete darkness after the lift hill, which lends itself to an amazing "midnight" ride - the best ride in the park. 9-Outstanding.
