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.
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.
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.
