Raging Wolf Bobs was a wooden roller coaster located at Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom amusement park in Ohio. Designed by Curtis D. Summers to resemble Bobs, a popular roller coaster at the defunct Riverview Park in Chicago, Raging Wolf Bobs was constructed by the Dinn Corporation and opened to the public in 1988. It operated until June 16, 2007, following an accident involving the derailing of a train that unexpectedly rolled backward on one of the track's hills. Later that season, park owners Cedar Fair announced the permanent closure of Geauga Lake, sealing the fate of Raging Wolf Bobs.

The Raging Wolf Bobs' original trailered PTC trains were replaced by a Gerstlauer train taken from the Villain for the 2003 season. For the 2005 season another used Gerstlauer train from Holiday World's Legend was added.
