California’s Great America continues to build on thrills with the debut of Patriot for the 2017 season. The upcoming 2018 season will deliver a first of a kind thrill that will deliver for thrill seekers. RailBlazer will debut in 2018 as one of the first single rail roller coasters on the West Coast. RailBlazer will provide riders with a unique view of their ride experience as they maneuver through many twists and inversions.

RailBlazer will lift riders to a height of 106 feet before descending down a 90 degree first drop. Riders will then encounter numerous airtime and steeply banked turns. The ride will reach speeds of 52 miles per hour, three inversions, and will have a complete track length of 1,800 feet. RailBlazer will have three trains that seat a capacity of 8 riders per cycle.

“RailBlazer is a revolutionary roller coaster concept that will be an intense and exhilarating ride experience for our guests,”said Raul Rehnborg, vice president and general manager. “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.”

The theme of RailBlazer will focus on off-road adventure that embraces the great outdoors of the Bay Area and Central Coast. The unique design of the new attraction will compose physical elements, a natural walkway, rocky surroundings, and a trailhead marquee sign designed to mark the beginning of your journey. The silent rollback lift hill will eliminate traditional sounds of a train moving up the track.
