RIDE MORE. WAIT LESS. SPEED PAST THE LINES WITH FAST LANE!
California’s Great America introduces a groundbreaking new single rail steel coaster, RailBlazer, for the 2018 season. RailBlazer is the first coaster of its kind on the West Coast featuring a single rail track throughout; the design requires the rider to straddle the rail, creating an extremely low center of gravity that amplifies every move and enables more dynamic turns and rotations than have ever been possible on a coaster. With an eight-passenger single file train hugging the rail, the coaster will give riders an unobstructed view of the ground and air as they speed smoothly over the twisting track.
A Revolutionary Roller Coaster Concept
“RailBlazer is a revolutionary roller coaster concept that is an intense and exhilarating ride experience for our guests,” said Raul Rehnborg, vice president and general manager, California’s Great America. “In addition, it marks the company’s initial investment in the park following the City of Santa Clara’s approval this year of the new park master plan, and kicks off a multi-year transformation of California’s Great America into a world-class destination for everyone in the Bay Area and beyond.”
Intense and Exhilarating
RailBlazer lifts riders to a height of 106 feet before plunging them face down at a 90-degree angle. Throughout the 1,800 feet of track, riders travel 52 miles per hour, experience an abundance of airtime and steeply banked turns, undertake three inversions and twist through a zero gravity roll.
An Immersive, Off-Road Adventure
The design spirit of the ride is reflective of an off-road adventure, with immersive sensory theming that embraces the great outdoors of the Bay Area and Central Coast. Once on board, riders ascend a 45-degree climb, dive into a ravine and encounter steeped embankments representing an extreme four-wheeling journey.
Imposing And Scenic
Imposing physical elements during the ride and queue line include a natural waterway, rocky surroundings and a trailhead marquee sign designed to mark the beginning of the journey.
