Roar is a wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, USA. There was a similar ride with the same name located at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The only differences were the trains (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Roar used Millennium Flyers from Great Coasters International, whereas Six Flags America's Roar uses 2x2 trains from Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters and is the only GCI roller coaster that still does) and the length (Six Flags America's Roar is slightly longer due to its hillside location.) However, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Roar closed on August 16, 2015 in order to be converted into a Rocky Mountain Construction IBox roller coaster named Joker for 2016.
