Thunderbolt Mountain Coaster


Think of 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.


The Mountain Coaster ticket window stops token sales 30 minutes prior to closing. Please reserve your ride(s) in advance.

Special hours for the mountain coaster can be reserved for groups larger than 25 participants. Call 413.339.6618 for more information.
