Home of the Thunderbolt Mountain Coaster, a combination alpine slide and roller coaster. The Thunderbolt takes riders up 1,580 feet of up-track through the forest before the cart disengages, and gravity takes over. The 3,870 feet of downhill track are designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own breaking system, allowing you to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels. With a minimum rider age of 3, and driver age of 9, it’s fun for the whole family!
