Racer 75 (formerly Rebel Yell) is a twin wooden roller coaster located at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, USA. It opened with the park in 1975. Its design was inspired by Racer, another wooden racing coaster at Kings Dominion's sister park, Kings Island in Ohio. In turn, Racer 75's design was the basis for the now defunct Thunder Road, at Carowinds in North Carolina.

History[edit | edit source]

Starting in 1992, one half of the Rebel Yell ran with the trains facing backwards. From 2008 this was reverted due to a decision by Cedar Fair which also saw Racer and Thunder Road operate with both sides facing forward.[1]

On February 2, 2018, it was announced that Rebel Yell would be renamed to Racer 75 for the new season.

Design[edit | edit source]

Trains[edit | edit source]
