 Review of Thunderhawk @ Michigans Adventure
1 Rating Posted by: STWoodBlur on 1/18/2009 5:03:00 PM
Sure, this ride may be another Vekoma SLC. But this ride is not "Just" another Vekoma SLC. This ride has many things going for it. First of all, the station is beautiful. Easily the best at Michigan's Adventure. Secondly, being relocated after being decommissioned, I expected this ride to be a creaky, shaky, rough mess. I was wrong. It handled all the curves with all the grace of a brand-new roller coaster. However, the best part of this roller coaster is the location. It is near the back of the park so it is a bit of a walk, but it is placed right alongside the park's Swan Boats lake, which really adds a nice touch. The path is so close up to the ride that you can feel the wind from the trains thundering past. And the first drop banks out over the pond in such a way that makes you feel as if you are about to fall out into the pond. The intensity on this ride tends to be very tough on your stomach, which is why this ride didn't score a 5/5 with me, but if you have an iron stomach, this ride is for you!

Good review! I've only been on one SLC (SFNE's) and I wouldn't agree that it's hard on the stomach, but boy is it hard on the head!

I was also amazed at how much better this was at a new location. My favorite of the 20 or so SLC's I have rode.

when I rode, I didn't feel like I had to throw up or anything, but, as far as the headbanging goes, just lean forward so you don't hit the headrest.
