The Boss is a wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri, USA. It was built by Custom Coasters International.

History[edit | edit source]

The roller coaster was announced in February 2000.[1]

For the 2018 season, the final helix was removed which shortened the ride by aproximately 420 feet. Boss was originally 5,051 feet long.[1]

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

The ride's track uses the existing terrain, which reduces the amount of support structure required.

Trains[edit | edit source]

3 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train. The trains were built by Gerstlauer.[2]
