Tips

  • High five the other car when they pass!!!
  • Put your hands up!
  • Don't stand up, a bunch of frat boys died years ago because they would ride this standing up.
  • The side that starts closer to the Jack Rabbit wins if they start evenly.
  • The best seat is the second to last in either train. You'll get whipped around the last turn and down the last little hill.
  • The Racer was built in 1927 and was the first roller coaster that had two cars that "raced" simultaneously...hence the name.
  • A great wooden coaster!
  • I love being able to reach over and high five people in the other car!
  • The double dip!!!!
  • The car that lost the last race will win the next one
  • The green one always wins!
  • Super fun, a family favorite!
  • Love this ride!
  • So much fun as always
  • The Racer was the only track with two cars running at the same time on a single track. That is why u change lanes when u come in!
  • It depends on the weight in the car. If it is too heavy, it will go slow. Also the length of one track is a little longer.
