26. Thunderbird, Holiday World

Are you ready to take flight on the nation’s first wing coaster?  For many people, the dream to take flight like a bird is immense. Until a person can strap on wings and jump, Thunderbird at Holiday World can give them the feeling of flight.

With no lift hill, Thunderbird launches riders from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. The speed isn’t the only aspect to this theme park ride. Riders experience multiple loops, rolls, twists and turns. All of these actions complete through the park’s thickly wooded and hilly terrain.

If riders keep their eyes open, the experience takes them soaring high then hugs the ground. In between the near misses, there is a 14-story Immelmann loop and the tallest vertical loop on any wing coaster.

Thunderbird is located at Holiday World. Holiday World is located at 452 E Christmas Blvd, Santa Claus, IN.
