Berserker

Take a trip on one of Great America’s oldest and most timeless rides! Berserker will be sure to give you an exciting thrill. Choose your bobsled and get ready to speed around a circular track, which thrills riders as their bobsled accelerates.

Riders sit in cars that travel faster and faster around a steeply banked and partially elevated track. You’ll be faced with hills and dips as you are whipped around the track. At the ride’s highest point, riders are tipped sideways at a 45-degree angle!

Ride solo in a bobsled or grab a partner to join in on the fun. You’ll sit in classic bobsled style with the front rider in between the back rider’s legs. Make sure you grab ahold of the bobsled as you tilt, dip and go round and round. Berserker has been thrilling riders since Great America opened in 1976 and is located right across the midway from RailBlazer and next to Demon!

Height Requirement: 48” minimum or 44” and accompanied by a supervising companion.

Rider Safety Information

  • This ride travels around a circular track. Seats lower to a slight angle during the duration of the ride, and the ride may go in reverse when the ride is coming to a final stop.
  • A shared seatbelt secures riders across the pelvis and thighs.
  • Guests must have a minimum of two functioning extremities; one functioning arm and one functioning leg. Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of one functioning arm and one functioning leg if the rider is able to form a saddle posture with leg remnants sufficient to brace self-upright in the seat against the restraint.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, back or neck brace, broken collar bone, or braced arm cast, are not allowed to ride. Guests with a full arm or full leg cast are permitted to ride if the cast fits comfortably inside the ride unit.
  • Alternate Access is available at the ride exit. Riders will have to take several steps on their own or with the assistance of a companion, and be capable of stepping down into the ride unit.
  • Visit our Guest Assistance Guide for additional Accessibility information.
