The 73rd Avenue Rollercoaster is an affectionate name for the abrupt drop on 73rd Avenue when headed west from I-580 towards MacArthur.
As 101 things to love about Oakland says:
It’s an abrupt drop of elevation as you drive down a hill that will cause your passengers to feel like they’re on a theme park ride. Drive from I-580 toward the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, go past Outlook Avenue at a reasonable speed as you go over the hill, and head down toward MacArthur Boulevard, now slightly over the speed limit. Then, brace yourself. 1
