A Great Coasters International woodie reaches a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour and offers a 100-foot drop with a high-speed S-curve at the base of the first drop. It also features the world's first "fly-through" station.


I was really looking forward to riding Thunderhead after reading so many great reviews, but my two rides on it were very rough. The layout is great, but the shaking kept me from enjoying it as much as I'd hoped I would. 7/10
Deceptively fast, but a little rough. Still pretty good. 8/10
A great wooden coaster that is just a bit too rough now. Wish they could retrack it because it has a great layout, but it lost that great smoothness. 8/10
It's gotten rougher but it's a joy to ride. Unpredictable and all over the place.
