There is a similar ride with the same name located at Six Flags America. The only differences are 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 to still use these trains.) and the length (Six Flags America's Roar is slightly longer due to its hillside location.)
History[edit | edit source]
Roar opened on May 14, 1999.
In 2014, large portions of Roar were re-tracked. Roar closed on August 16, 2015. On September 3, 2015, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom announced that Roar would be converted into a steel hybrid coaster named Joker for 2016.
