Intensity Level: Wild
Thunderhead is a classic wooden coaster with speeds up to 55 mph. This one is as must-do for coaster fans and thrill seekers. It's a bumpy ride with twists, turns, hills, and big drops.
Whistle Punk Chaser
Height: 36"
Intensity Level: Mild
This is a fairly quick coaster that's great for kids who are just starting to get used to coasters. It looks pretty mild, but the back seat, like most coasters, can really whip you around during the ride. Because it was made for kids, some larger adults may not fit in the seats. It has a short track, so they have you go around it 3 times.
