Prowler is a wooden roller coaster located at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Built by Great Coasters International, the ride opened on May 2, 2009. It is located in the Africa section of the park.[1]


Prowler was announced on September 1, 2008.[1] An auction was held in April 2009 to raise money for charity, those with the winning bids being among the first to ride Prowler.[2] The ride opened a month later on May 2.[3]

For the 2019 season, both Prowler and Timber Wolf were retracked. Some sections had their wood replaced, including the first drop. The wood on the outside section of the hill was being replaced with IPE wood, which was the highest quality timber available and eight times harder than California Redwood. This would add some softness to the turn and reduce the stress on the track. Plus, the ride received a new chain for the lift hill.[4]




2 trains with 12 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 24 riders per train. Prowler has Millennium Flyer trains with individual lap bars.
