Thunderbolt - Top 10 Coasters

A train full or passengers enjoy the ride on the Thunderbolt at Kennywood. Its "classic" features include manually operated hand brakes, trains with seats that lack dividers so riders can slosh in their seats (and into partners!) when going around its many curves, and no over-the-shoulder restraints. And instead of climbing a hill right out of the gates, riders are dropped out of the station into a lush green valley, and then race at 55 mph through a series of turns and surprising drops.
