High Roller is a wooden roller coaster located at Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota, USA. It is the oldest roller coaster at the park, being built in 1976 when the park first opened. The ride is a common misconception that High Roller is really the Cyclone from nearby Excelsior Amusement Park, which closed a few years before Valleyfair opened. However, this is not the case. While High Roller bears some similarities to Cyclone, it was a brand new ride in 1976, and Cyclone was demolished when the Excelsior park closed.[1]

History

High Roller was repainted for the 2022 season.[2]
