Roar-O-Saurus at Story Land. Hard to believe that ride is only 40 feet tall with how much fun it packs in.


I agree Roar-o-saurus is amazing. Just a bit better than Wooden Warrior since it's a longer ride.


Actually, it's not longer. They're both 1240 ft long and 30 seconds from the top of the lift to brakes.


If you think it's better, I won't argue as I have only ridden WW.

In looking at the POV ( like I said, I've only ridden WW) I think I can agree with this. Pretty much after the bunny hill after the tunnel on WW it's over, but Roar o saurus doesn't seem to let up. If it packs more of a punch than WW I'd definitely like to take a spin on it. Either way, I'm blown away by what Gravity Group is doing with these tiny woodies these days!

Going to cheat here, since I've only been on a few woodies under 75ft, and therefore, I am going to extend my selection to all wooden coasters under 85ft (I haven't ridden Phoenix yet, so there is no danger of going just over 75 ft).


American Thunder (82ft)

Invadr was a fun ride but my vote would go to Thunderbolt at Kennywood with Cyclops at Mt. Olympus as my #2. For its age, Thunderbolt is surprisingly smooth which is a reflection of how well the park takes care of it.

Thunderbolt is a great ride. I was bummed to find out they had seat belts added, but the laterals are still that ride's bread and butter.


I have a new king of the small hill, Cornball Express. The world's top roller coaster in 2002 according to ThemeParkCritic.com (a fact the park is very proud of lol) is absolutely amazing. I hadn't heard much about that coaster in a long time, but that ride gave some of the most intense air I've encountered and it was all just with buzz bars.
