Judge Roy Scream is an out and back wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, USA. The ride sits at the other side of a lake from the park entrance and is accessed using a tunnel that travels underneath the parking lot and entrance road.
Judge Roy Scream was built at a cost of $2.1 million and opened on March 1, 1980.
In 1994, Judge Roy Scream was running backwards, initially for 10 weeks. However, due to high demand, it ran backwards for the remainder of the season.
4 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.
The name Judge Roy Scream refers to Judge Roy Bean, as inferred by a sign in the queue line describing the 19th century Justice of the Peace, and of course the similarity of the two names. The top of the lift hill features a sign stating Appeal denied! to tie in with this theme.
