Patriot is the longest, tallest and fastest inverted roller coaster in the region, and the largest capital expenditure on a single attraction in the park's history.
The inverted Patriot delivers just over two minutes of the ultimate amusement park adventure by exposing riders to height, speed and a seamless transition of gravity-defying elements. Hanging beneath the track, thrill-seekers climb a 149-foot lift hill, then plunge down a 123-foot curved drop reaching a speed of nearly 60 mph. Riders are disoriented as they fly through seven gravity-defying elements, including an 89-foot vertical loop, a zero-gravity roll, an Immelmann loop, an inclined banked curve, an s-curve, a corkscrew, and a high-speed spiral. With 3,081 feet of seemingly out-of-control tubular steel track, Patriot is the perfect addition to Worlds of Fun's already impressive line-up of world-class thrill rides.
