Raging Wolf Bobs was a wooden roller coaster located at Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio, USA. It was constructed by the Dinn Corporation and opened to the public in May 1988.

History

Raging Wolf Bobs opened 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.[1]

Design

Raging Wolf Bobs had a max height of 80 feet, a drop of 75 feet and a max speed of 50 mph.[2]

Elements

Trains

2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.

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.
