The only RACING AND DUELING coaster in the country. It has a great steep curving first drop that still gets me after riding it over 100 times. This is defeniately a back seat ride because it adds to the racing/dueling effect. There is more airtime in the back though. However, aside from being a FUN ride it isnt the most thrilling.. still awesome though.

the combination racing and dueling aspects of this coaster makes it one of the greatest. its best if ridden with a couple friends, so you can go on opposite trains and taunt each other during the ride!

When I went to CoasterCon this year, all I rode was Lightning Racer. I thought this ride was awesome. The dueling and racing aspect was great. I really cant figure out which side I liked better, but they were both the ship. This once again proves my theory that WOOD COASTERS RULE!!!

Lightning Racer is by far the best dueling coaster on the planet. You be screaming and wonder who will win. The end was great. My train lost but I didnt care it still was great

This dueling woodie is simply incredible. It is fast, furious, and suprisingly smooth. The track layout is brilliant. The trains alternately race and duel on various parts of the course. The trains themselves are great. They give a far better view and a more exposed feel than most woodie trains. There is no theming, but the station looks really nice. Another thing that impressed me with this coaster is that it is very smooth for a wooden coaster. Lightining Racer is a must-ride for anyone visiting HersheyPark. One of the best woodies around!

GCI has done another great job. The station is beautiful, the track layout, when viewed from the lift hill is reminiscent of the Coney Island Tornado (Bobs). It is a credit to their design ability that the two trains take slightly different courses, yet without brakes, manage to finish within half a trains length of each other. The ride feels out of control and never loses its pace.

This is a B&M smooth action packed ride. The trains alternatively intertwine then oppose each other. The race is fun. Its kid friendly. Its a great ride but what I really like about this coaster is its classic coaster architecture. The trains, the station, the track, exude a bygone era. This coaster can have a bit of a wait, a wait that is eased by the attention to detail. I have to say that it was a pleasurable wait.
