Rebel Yell, Kings Dominion - Review

Rebel Yell - Review

Kings Dominion

Ride Facts and Info

Racer is a dual track out-and-back woodie designed by John Allen of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. The ride has 4 trains (2 per track), each with 5 cars containing 3 rows of 2 seats. The ride has individual racheting lapbars for restraints. The train on one track is run backwards.


Ride Layout

The ride consists of a turnaround out of the station, which continues until the two tracks are running side-by-side. The trains then climb the lifthill, and descend the first drop. Two small bunny hills follow, before the trains climb up a larger hill. Another small bunny hill follows before the trains rise up into a turnaround.

The turnarounds go in opposite directions so that the two tracks separate. After the drop from the turnaround, there are two more hills, with the second one turning slightly to allow the tracks to run parallel again, and run adjacent to the “out” portion of the ride. Three more bunny hills follow before the trains enter individual tunnels that contain the loading block brakes. The trains then return to the station after a total of 11 drops each side.


Ride Evaluation

I found Rebel Yell a bit on the boring side; the ride seems a little slow, and lacks any decent airtime. Riding backwards is a more unique experience and certainly adds a bit of spice (and intensity) to the ride. Riding backwards in the rain was actually fun seemed to make the ride run faster with more airtime.
