Raging Bull is a steel hyper roller coaster located at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, USA. The ride opened on May 1, 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.
Six Flags Great America announced the addition of Raging Bull on October 21, 1998. Construction of Raging Bull started in November of that year. Raging Bull opened on May 1, 1999.
On June 15, 2016, Six Flags announced that virtual reality would be put on the ride.
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.
On May 3, 2003 an 11-year-old girl died after choking on gum while riding Raging Bull.
