Lightning

Feel the Extreme Thrill!

— THE RIDE —

  • Marketable Moment: The vertical lift and vertical drop are the simply most exhilarating way to start a roller coaster experience. This iconic structure will be the feature piece of your print and digital marketing campaign.
  • A high-capacity thrill ride with a myriad of potential layouts and elements. To date we have utilized thrilling elements like the Vertical Loop, Immelman Turn, Corkscrew, Dive Loop and many others to create world-class experiences.
  • The Lighting is an updated version of our Thunderbolt attraction.
  • The vertical lift has a customized magnetic braking system. In case of a power outage the vehicle can easily be rolled backwards down the lift to allow for a ground-level evacuation.
  • We offer both standard and custom layouts to meet your capacity and budgetary needs.

INNOVATIVE TRAIN DESIGN

  • New Restraint and Seat: The Lightning features open seating that keeps riders safe with a comfortable, redundant lap bar. The goal was to create a vehicle that was ergonomic while also creating open seating.
  • Capacity: The train’s open design allows for a higher real hourly capacity. Guests can enter and exit the train much faster than the competition.
  • Re-Imagined Car Body: The entire chassis is aluminum-milled. This not only allows the vehicle to weigh less; it dramatically reduces the amount of NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) required every off-season. This minimizes the cost of ownership when compared to traditional roller coaster vehicles.
  • Durable Seats: We re-examined every part of the ride to increase ease of maintenance. One dramatic improvement is in the seat padding application. Our design allows for sections of padding to be replaced in a matter of minutes and divides the seats into several sections, lowering the annual replacement costs.
  • Meet any Capacity: The Lightning train system is our modular thrill platform and we can design trains from 2 to 7 rows long. Whatever your goals, we can design the train to meet all of your cost and capacity metrics.
