Background-

Lion’s Roar was built in the 90s to occupy an old animal enclosure as an attempt to draw in more guests with a new type of attraction.

Design -

The design was heavily inspired by Kumba and Dragon Khan, in fact almost a clone and the long lost brother to those coasters. I wanted to capture the magic of the early B&M designs and how groundbreaking they were at the time. Also how they sit so beautifully on the skyline. The environment ensure no sight lines are blocked, this is a ride for people who love watching them.

Elements -

Vertical Loop
Dive Loop
Zero-G Roll
Cobra Roll
MCBR
Vertical Loop
S-Bend
Inter-locking Corkscrews

Notes-

This ride it dedicated to Adam Michael Lyon & Olly Beswetherick <3

Huge thanks to everyone on the discords for helping me push the design further, shout out to Dustin for inspiring the creation of the coaster.. and then inspiring a complete re-design.

This was fantastic (of course) very definitely the old style B&M, and it was good for it. I'd also add a little sprinkle of Mantis Rougarou in there too, especially that transition from the second loop into the turnaround.

Wouldn't be fair to pick faults - that was ace.

Thanks Hixee!

Ok, don't be mad, but bit of an experiement I overlayed the CoasterForce Kumba audio over a backseat ride on Lion's Roar and... kinda like it.

Love the layout and flow! Actually gives off very Georgia Scorcher vibes, especially how the sightlines and pacing match up:
