Massachusetts Mountain Coaster

Mountain Coaster in Western Massachusetts

The Thunderbolt is North America’s longest Mountain Coaster featuring two corkscrews. The Thunderbolt Mountain Coaster is the most amazing coaster experience in Western Massachusetts!

It as 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 braking 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!

The Thunderbolt is New England’s premier mountain coaster in Western, Massachusetts which offers a truly breathtaking experience!

The Mountain Coaster opens in April and runs through October!

★★★★★ “We came early on a Sunday to ride the Mountain Coaster. Two teenagers with mom and dad. We’ve ventured down alpine slides and alpine coasters in four different states now, and this is one of the best (and certainly the newest). We were the first to arrive, so there was no wait.

The staff is clear with their instructions, and ready to answer every question. Very friendly. The guy up at the top was funny.

The ride up to the top is long, but peaceful. The ride down should be fast. The slower you go, the bumpier the ride. It’s a lot of fun. The kids rode the whole way without brakes. I’m too much of a chicken to do that, but I still took some curves fast.

Three rides each for the four of us. About an hour altogether and roughly $130. I would go again! “

★★★★★ "Berkshire East is one of the best kept secrets! I was not aware of all the high quality, professional activities available there! Look up what you can do there.We rode the new mountain coaster twice and could have done it all day if we had money to burn. This was a blast from top to bottom. It's long, smooth, fast and you feel like you're on a big roller coaster. What a great addition to the ski resort. If you love coasters, this is a must if you're in the area. "
