HOLIDAY WORLD ANNOUNCES NEW COASTER

The suspense is finally over.   Holiday World has announced that the new attraction for 2015 will be Thunderbird, the first launched wing coaster in the USA.   The coaster will launch from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and feature a 14-storey Immelmann loop, zero-g roll, barrel roll and 125-foot loop.   It will also create the illusion of near misses with keyhole elements (presumably similar to the one on X-Flight at Six Flags Great America)  At $22 million, Thunderbird will be the largest investment in the park’s history.  Video courtesy of Holiday World.
