Prairie Screamer is a sit-down roller coaster located at Traders Village in Grand Prairie, Texas, USA. It opened on November 12, 2022. The ride originally operated at Scandia Amusement Park in Ontario, California, USA.


On March 26, 2007, noise complaints from neighboring residents brought in a "No-Shrieking" policy for riders on the roller coaster.[1]

On February 3, 2019 the park had closed for renovations. However, days later on the 8th, the park announced that it would not be reopening for the next season as the owners had sold the property to another party. Some rides were moved to Scandia's other parks. Screamer was not one of them and closed for good along with the park.[2]

The roller coaster was purchased by Traders Village in October 2020 and subsequently refurbished.[3] It opened on November 12, 2022.[4]


The Screamer has a compact layout, and reaches heights of 90 feet, making it by far the tallest roller coaster built by E&F Miller.


2 trains with 3 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 12 riders per train.
