This wooden coaster from William Cobb & Associates dates back to 1980 and features an out and back layout. Seating two across in three rows with four cars for a total capacity of 24 riders, the train makes a right turn from the loading station and ascends a 71-foot lift hill. Once at the top it drops 65 feet and continues its course over several more consecutive drops. This is followed by a right turn, after which the train traverses a series of dips on its way back to the station. The maximum speed is 53 mph.
The ride is surprisingly smooth for a wooden coaster 36 years old at the time of my writing this. There was none of the roughness that I had anticipated. While hardly a high thrill ride, Judge Roy Scream is an enjoyable and fun ride. 3 out of 5 stars. For more information about rides at Six Flags Over Texas, visit www.sixflags.com/overtexas.
