Firehawk

Rule

Kings Island

Take flight on Firehawk, a flying roller coaster designed by Vekoma. The Flying Dutchman coaster uses a unique style train with seats that recline to a lying down position. Upon reaching the top of the 115-foot tall lift hill the train inverts positioning the riders in a flying position. Firehawk features five inversions and a top speed of 51 mph as it flies along 3,340 feet of steel track. This roller coaster was originally located at Geauga Lake before it was taken apart and moved to Kings Island.
