A Huss Top Spin attraction with an added water element. Sit on the edges of the rows to avoid getting sprayed (or ride on cooler days when the water element is turned off).

Note: the water element has not been in operation at any time since the 2009 season. Apparently it is broken and repairs are not forthcoming.

This ride has a 77" maximum height.

A fairly intense midway experience, when it is actually operational (seems to have a lot of down time). Worth a visit if you like going upside down five or six times in a row. The best touring strategy for Thunderhawk is to hit it right after you ride Timber Wolf, since it is just outside the coaster's exit, surrounded by scores of lame midway games. There is no other reason to be in this area of the park, so by riding after you exit Timber Wolf you kill two birds with one stone and only have to wade through this lame midway mecca once. I would love for this area to be redeveloped and utilized for something more than county fair style experiences, but for now just ride Timber Wolf and Thunderhawk then move on quickly! 4-Mediocre.
