Renegade is a wood roller coaster at Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota that was designed by Great Coasters International. It was one of the first coasters built by Great Coasters International to use their Millennium Flyer trains, which are designed to give a smoother ride. Renegade's layout is a combination of an Out and Back roller coaster and a Twister roller coaster.
Renegade stands 97.5 feet (29.7 m) tall with a first hill and ride maximum drop of 91 feet (28 m) at a maximum speed of 51.3 mph (82.6 km/h). The track is 3,113 feet (949 m) long, resulting in a ride time of approximately two minutes. The track was built at a cost of approximately $6.5 million. Two trains, consisting of 24 seats, accommodate 850 riders per hour.
This coaster has two rare features: the initial first drop and a high-speed station fly-by. The first hill of this coaster features an S-shaped drop. It initially goes down in one direction and at half-way twists in the opposite direction. Before the train comes back to the station it does a final high speed fly-by of the loading station. Since its opening, it is one of the most popular rides at Valleyfair.
