Places

  1. Excalibur is a steel roller coaster with a wooden structure located at Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota. It was built in 1989 by Arrow Dynamics, for the cost of $3,000,000. The ride is 105 feet tall with a top speed of 54.5 mph, and has a minimum height requirement of 48 inches. Excalibur is only one of a few coasters in the world that has a steel track with a wood frame. Two others, Gemini and Cedar Creek Mine Ride, are located at sister park Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. It follows a customized figure-eight track layout and is rather short for a major roller coaster, with a total ride duration of two minutes and thirteen seconds. Most likely due to its location at the very western edge of the park and the more recently built roller coasters such as Wild Thing, Steel Venom and Renegade, Excalibur witnesses significantly less foot traffic than other, more frequently visited rides. This leads to relatively short lines for riders and similarly short wait times to gain access to the ride. Some visitors to Valleyfair have been known to ride Excalibur once, exit the ride, then immediately return to the entrance and be able to ride again with virtually no wait.
  2. Excalibur is a wooden roller coaster at Funtown Splashtown USA in Saco, Maine. It is the tallest and longest roller coaster in Northern New England. The ride runs with a single 2-bench Philadelphia Toboggan Company train. The ride's name is based on King Arthur's sword.
  3. Excalibur is a Venue, Building in Madrid.
    • also known as Excalibur Metal
  4. Excalibur is a formation on the north rim of the Grand Canyon in Coconino County, Arizona. It was named by cartographer and geologist François Matthes in 1908 for Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur which was given to him by the Lady of the Lake. Other features in the area include the Holy Grail, Guinevere Castle, Elaine Castle, and Galahad Point whose names refer to the Arthurian legend. The name probably refers to a spire near the summit of the promontory which might resemble the handle of Excalibur.
  5. The Excalibur nightclub in Chicago was first opened in 1989. It is located in the former Chicago Historical Society building which is a Chicago historical landmark. The building was constructed in 1892 and designed by Henry Ives Cobb in the Romanesque Revival style; the gothic pair of large and imposing winged gargoyles at the entrance are a more recent addition.
