Judge Roy Scream
The Judge Roy Scream is a family wooden roller coaster located alongside the scenic entrance lake of the park. Given the remote location of the coaster, guests must use an underground tunnel in Goodtimes Square that lies beneath the park's parking lot entrance to access the ride's queue line. The tunnel, which can be a challenge for Six Flags over Texas novices to find, is located near the Texas Chute Out parachute ride.
A relatively mild ride, the Judge Roy Scream is a great family coaster and provides a good transition between kiddy coasters and the larger thrill rides.
The name "Judge Roy Scream" is a nod to the eccentric Texas Justice of the Peace, Judge Roy Bean. Keeping with the theme, the ride has a sign at the top of the lift hill just before the first drop stating "Appeal Denied."
- Occasionally Six Flags over Texas turns the Judge Roy Scream trains around and runs the ride backwards during special events.
- Geese and ducks can frequently be spotted under the ride, and park visitors often feed these animals near the entry lake.
- Six Flags over Texas reportedly contacted Bill Cobb to quickly design a wooden coaster as a replacement to the Big Bend ride the park had removed. The Judge Roy Scream was the result, and turned out to be Cobb's favorite family coaster according to a plaque in the queue line.
