Themed after a tricked out 1950s-era hot rod, Lightning Rod is billed as the first wooden coaster in the world to use a launch system instead of a traditional lift hill. Riders are launched from 0 to 45 miles per hour before racing around a 3,800 foot circuit that includes a 165 foot drop. At the foot of the hill, the trains reach 73 miles per hour.
