The Prowler is the second wooden roller coaster to be built at Worlds of Fun, which was proclaimed 2009’s Best New Ride in the World by Amusement Today. The Prowler is one of a kind in the park, soaring through forested terrain offering shadowy camouflage for lurking creatures. From the moment the passengers are seat-belted into the train, the Prowler is ready to pounce. Immediately feel the power of this beast as you approach the initial hill. Must be 48 inches or taller to ride.

Height Requirement: 48” minimum

Prowler Roller Coaster

The 2.5 minute journey starts off by slowly climbing above the trees, and then immediately roaring down 85 feet while simultaneously making an intense 180 degree turn. The entirety of the ride consists of violent but smooth diagonal turns and gravity reducing hills that do not let down throughout the whole ride, and reaches speeds up to 51 miles per hour!
