Lightning Rod


Themed after a tricked out 1950s-era hot rod, Lightning Rod launches riders from zero to 45 mph (72 km/h) more than 20 stories up its lift structure. At the crest of the hill, riders face twin summit airtime hills before tackling a daring first drop. Lightning Rod races down the 165 foot (50 m) hillside and propels guests to a top speed of 73 mph (117km/h). There is no surprise why USA Today has continually named Lightning Rod as one of the top-10 best roller coasters in the country.
