Renegade in 2007 at Valleyfair!


Valleyfair! Adds New Wooden Hybrid Coaster in 2007
Renegade will join a short list of new wooden coasters opening in 2007. Valleyfair!, located in Shakopee, MN outside of Minneapolis, is a medium-sized amusement park operated by Cedar Fair. The park will open its first new wooden coaster in 30 years with Renegade.

It looks to be the largest and most ambitious wooden coaster to open next year. Renegade will boast a twisting first drop of 90 feet and a station fly-by. It will take riders on a hybrid layout that will feature both twister and out-and-back elements. Top wooden coaster designers, Great Coasters International will be building Renegade. In the past decade, GCI has built some gems including Lightning Racer at Hershey Park and Thunderhead at Dollywood. If Renegade is on par with these coasters, then Valleyfair! will have a winner in Renegade.

Founder of My favorite coasters are B&M hypers and gigas. I'm also a huge fan of terrain roller coasters.


  1. We at Valleyfair! need something new now that it is stated that we're staying Cedar Fair (by proclamation that Planet Snoopy is coming in 2011). Otherwise, we'll lose popularity. Renegade is fun, yes. but the winter months have made it rougher. We need a B&M! And it could be coming in 2012 if the rumors I've heard are true. I hope it goes all the way up to the 275 ft. height limit here (due to the park's proximity to an airport). That would put us on the map for a while. Especially if the trademarked name Stratosaur rumor holds out.

  2. Buildind model of wood coaster,does anyone have measurements for the track width,thickness,spacing,4 feet apart,2×6????? etc. also how the trains link together,gci front car setup.Tring to be as exact as posable.Thank you, scotty
