Grizzly at California's Great America has over the years developed a reputation among coaster enthusiasts as being one of the "worst wooden roller coasters in the world". Named after such a fearsome animal this ride fails to deliver anything remotely exciting. The double out and back design is slow, boring, short on thrills and regularly delivers a rough ride. Commonly enthusiasts will joke that the park uses square wheels on the clunky trains which have also been nicknamed "Morgan Coffins".
