The Grizzly is a wooden roller coaster located at California's Great America in Santa Clara, California. The ride was designed by Curtis D. Summers and manufactured by Kings Island Construction. It uses traditional tracks with steel wheels on the cars, and, therefore, is designed to maintain positive-g loading on the cars and riders throughout its course.
From 1996 to 2011, the Grizzly had been voted the worst wooden coaster in the world. The ride was retracked by Adams Amusements from 2011 to 2014. As a result, the Grizzly has improved and is much smoother.
