Roller Coaster was a wooden roller coaster located at Playland Park in Houston, Texas, USA. It was formerly located at Venice Park (formerly Luna Park) in the same location as Giant Skyrocket. The roller coaster was damaged by a storm in July, 1943, and rebuilt by the spring of 1944. John Miller died in Playland Park's location in July, 1941, while working on plans for a roller coaster there. It is possible this roller coaster was the intended location, although nothing has been found that says specifically whether he was involved in designing this ride.
