Roar was a wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California, USA. Roar was the first Great Coasters International coaster to use Millennium Flyer trains.
There is a similar ride with the same name located at Six Flags America. The only differences are the trains (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Roar used Millennium Flyers from Great Coasters International, whereas Six Flags America's Roar uses 2x2 trains from Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters and is the only GCI to still use these trains.) and the length (Six Flags America's Roar is slightly longer due to its hillside location.)
On October 28, 1998, it was announced that Roar would be added, along with the Six Flags makeover of Marine World. Roar opened on May 14, 1999.
In 2014, large portions of Roar were re-tracked.
On July 16, 2015, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom announced that Roar would close on August 16, 2015 after serving nearly 11 million riders. On September 3, 2015, the park announced that Roar would be converted into a steel hybrid coaster named The Joker for the 2016 season.
2 trains with 12 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 24 riders per train.
