The Roller Coaster Corporation of America, or RCCA, was an American company, infamous for their rough and problematic wooden roller coasters. Their first major project was The Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in 1992, while their most noticeable coaster was the inverting wooden hypercoaster, Son of Beast at Kings Island in 2000. Their last project was Coaster Express at Parque Warner Madrid in 2002. RCCA's website praised their craftsmanship, precision, efficiency, and great quality coasters.[1] However, RCCA fell far short of these traits, as they scammed theme parks with low prices and rushed through construction of their coasters.[2] RCCA faced many problems with their Son of Beast roller coaster, such as design flaws and inferior supports, which led to a lawsuit between Kings Island and RCCA. The company's reputation never fully recovered, and RCCA ceased operation in 2005. RCCA built seven coasters in total, and three are still operating as of today.
