The Boss is a wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri, USA. The ride was built by Custom Coasters International. Opened on April 29, 2000, it was the park's second wooden roller coaster.

History

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

The Boss was planned to open on April 21, 2000, but the opening was delayed to April 29.

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

Design

Elements

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

Trains

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]
