OUR NEWEST RIDE – RAILBLAZER
The groundbreaking new single rail coaster, RailBlazer, is the first of its kind on the West Coast, and takes riders speeding over a twisting track to experience an abundance of airtime and steeply banked turns. Guests can indulge in gourmet eats, try their luck at classic games and watch exciting live entertainment all season long.
“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.”
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. 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.
