Founded in 2007, the Twin Cities Terrors hold claim to being the largest and most competitive male derby organization in the United States. With a roster comprised of former hockey players, aggressive inline skaters and competitive jam skaters, the Terrors are widely regarded as the definition of a new style of roller derby. With play based on speed and intensity, the Terrors foundation looks past the gimmicks and other niche factors commonly associated with the sport, making them one of the most heavily sought after organizations around the Midwest.
The Terrors have traveled across the country, including stops in Seattle, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Sioux City, Sioux Falls, Little Rock, Duluth and Fargo. Their travel schedule even leaves room for "derby demos" at other league events, including female derby leagues who often host them for halftime entertainment.
Even in relative obscurity, Minneapolis's own Twin Cities Terrors have become the largest, most exciting all-male roller derby club in the country. Despite this anonymity in their own hometown, they've set the online derby blogs and community into a fever pitch by announcing their highly anticipated inaugural three-bout home season. On January 30, 2010, the Terrors made history by hosting their first bout where it all began—the birthplace of Minnesota Roller Derby—Coon Rapid's very own Cheapskate Roller Center.
