Thunderbolt

You’re not going to believe this, but the massive wooden roller coaster you’re about to ride was built in 1941. And you’re about to see why sometimes the classics stick around for a reason. You’ll be darting around like countless coaster fans before you on this classic, tall wooden structure.

At 70 feet tall and zooming over the tracks at 40 miles per hour, this whooshy race over the rails is family friendly, even making for a great transition for younger riders who are in training for the mega-coasters.

Up you go, to the top of a seven story lift, and then it’s off for a great serving of what classic wooden roller coasters do best. You’ll buzz over a non-stop series of straight-ahead hills and dazzling drops. The figure-8 layout serves up its thrills simple and to the point, as you discover the history of these magical rides you’ve come to love, one hill at a time. And you won’t be alone in this discovery – Thunderbolt was recently declared an actual landmark by the esteemed American Coaster Enthusiasts.
