Thunderbolt is through the words of regional journalist David Rainville.

           “The coaster built up speed and hurtled me toward oaks and maples, cutting a quick turn just feet from the closest tree. I had to fight my own instincts, at first. Though I felt as though I was going too fast to make the curves, I put my faith in the designers. Surely they couldn’t have built it to exceed safe speeds? It was a wild ride and that safety belt came in handy as my rear end left the seat a few times as the cart flew through the track’s drops and curves.

You will experience G-force inducing twists and turns and churning drops over the next 3870 ft. of downhill track. All along the ride, valley views, gorgeous woodlands, and the shrieks of excited riders will induce a level of excitement that keep you wanting more. Due to its length, steep terrain, and an unbelievable collections of dips, turns, screwdriver 360′s, we strongly believe Berkshire East’s Thunderbolt will be the most thrilling Mountain Coaster in North America and will set a new bar of excellence within the Mountain Coaster industry.”
