Raging Bull is a steel hyper roller coaster located at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, USA. The ride opened in 1999 as the second Bolliger & Mabillard roller coaster to exceed 200 feet. Like Viper, Raging Bull is located in Southwest Territory, a frontier-themed area.
Design[edit | edit source]
Raging Bull is one of two B&M hyper coasters to feature a pre drop, the other being Apollo's Chariot at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It is themed to a ferocious beast that terrorized residents of the old Southwest Territory until they fled the town.
