Thank the Terrain for the Land’s Top Wooden Coaster.

There is a reason The Boss is one of the top coasters at Six Flags St. Louis. After the first 150-foot double-down drop, you’ll tunnel right through the middle of the incredible structure and then blaze a super-fast 65 miles per hour up the next lift. Right about now you’re starting to realize this isn’t your standard wooden coaster; this is a modern adrenaline machine of the highest order.

One of the things that makes it so innovative is right under your feet: the ground. This coaster is known as a “terrain twister” because it incorporates the natural topography of the land it’s built on into the architecture of the ride. You’ll rise and fall with the earth itself, giving the whole experience an utterly organic feel. More than ever, you’ll feel like a bird coursing over the peaks and valleys of the planet—except this bird is taking on a series of drops ranging from a whopping 72 feet at the lowest, all the way up to 150 feet. On this magnificent master of all things wooden, all the drops are big! So hold on tight because you’ll also feel the terrain on the ground-hugging, high banked turns.

The classic construction, combined with a modern understanding of aerodynamics, both join in a natural partnership with the land itself, giving you a feeling of total freedom, combined with total power. You just feel unstoppable on this ride—you feel like the boss of all things wild.
