RC-48 is a travelling steel roller coaster built by Italian manufacturer Pinfari currently owned by US carnival operator Wade Shows.

The ride first opened in 2000 on the original pier at Morey's Piers.

For 2009, the colour scheme was changed from silver supports with blue track to blue track and orange supports.

Since 2008, the roller coaster has appeared at the Florida State Fair yearly.
