Now serving launch: Thunderbird, the nation’s only launched wing coaster!
What? No lift hill?
That’s right! Thunderbird launches riders from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. Then multiple loops, rolls, twists, and turns begin: including a 14-story Immelmann loop, Zero-g roll, barrel roll, and the tallest vertical loop on any wing coaster! Ride it in the front, the back, and both wings for multiple experiences!
Continuing Holiday World’s tradition of sending roller coasters through thickly wooded and hilly terrain, Thunderbird steel roller coaster at first soars and loops high in the air. Then it hugs the ground, surprising riders with rapid-fire “near misses” such as chimneys, a windmill, other rides, trees, and even <gulp!> a barn.
Riders must be at least 52 inches tall, but no taller than 6’6″.
