Judge Roy Scream

Judge Roy Scream, a wooden coaster, is located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. It has a unique out-and-back layout that was designed to be enjoyed by families.

Judge Roy Scream was the park's first wooden rollercoaster. It was introduced in 1980. The park's entrance lake is where Judge Roy Scream is located. Six Flags Over Texas guests must use the tunnel in the Goodtimes Square section of the park to cross the parking lot entrance road. Judge Roy Scream is a reference to Judge Roy Bean. This is implied by a sign at the park's entrance road that describes the 19th century Justice of the Peace, and the similarity of the names.

On November 30, 1979 Judge Roy Scream announced his visit to Six Flags Over Texas. The ride opened March 1, 1980, at a cost $2.1 million.

Judge Roy Scream ran backwards during the 1994 season. This was supposed to last for ten weeks. It was a popular request and lasted the rest of the season.

Six Flags over Texas hosted a 45-hour marathon ride aboard the Judge Roy Scream in 2006. There were 19 contestants, ten from ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts), and nine radio contestants.
