The Legend is a wooden roller coaster located at Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana, USA. Situated in the Halloween themed area, the name is a reference to Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, as riders dash through the woods of Holiday World as if chased by the Headless Horseman.[1] The ride opened on May 6, 2000.


The Legend was announced in June 1999.[1]

On May 6, 2000, The Legend opened to the public.

For the 2002 season, the original single Gerstlauer train was replaced with two new trains from Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters. A transfer and storage track was also added. These modifications were carried out by Custom Coasters International.[2][3]

In 2016, the track on the first drop was replaced and additional supports were added. A new double down element was added and a turn was lowered. This work was carried out by Great Coasters International and Skyline Attractions.[4] A new themed tunnel was also added.[5]




2 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.
