Renegade is a wood roller coaster at Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota that was designed by Great Coasters International. It was one of the first coasters built by Great Coasters International to use their Millennium Flyer trains, which are designed to give a smoother ride. Renegade's layout is a combination of an Out and Back roller coaster and a Twister roller coaster.

This coaster has two rare features: the initial first drop and a high-speed station fly-by. The first hill of this coaster features an S-shaped drop. It initially goes down in one direction and at half-way twists in the opposite direction. Before the train comes back to the station it does a final high speed fly-by of the loading station. Since its opening, it is one of the most popular rides at Valleyfair.

It was featured on Discovery Channel's Build It Bigger program on July 10, 2007.
