This is a really good ride. One of the smoothest woodies I have ever been on and its just plain fun. The racing aspect of the ride is what makes it so great. The trains are very comfortable and really enhance the ride experience. The layout is very simple but very effective. Must ride!

My second favorite wooden coaster. Beaten only by the great Phoenix at Knoebels. It has got to be the smoothest woodie Ive ever been on. Its an amazing coaster. I love the racing/dueling action. Its pretty good even though its a wooden coaster, which cant come as close as steel coasters can. We always make sure to ride at least twice whenever we go to Hershey. Im partial to the green side (Thunder?). But both sides are incredibly fun.

Lightning Racer is the BEST wooden roller coaster I have ridden to date!! Lightning Racer proves that massive heights and insane speed arent needed to produce a world-class coaster. First off, the trains are totally slick and probably the most comfortable trains Ive ever ridden in. The lift is interesting, being that one side is higher up than the other, but then you even out at the top. The first drop, at 90 feet, is awesome!! I was amazed how smooth this ride was from start to finish. Then comes the absolute fun of the racing/dueling element, which I personally thought was super!! The fly-by leading into the tunnel was my favorite part! The crossovers were excellent and really gave the ride that racing feel. Overall, great drops, great airtime and incredible smoothness equal one blast of a ride!! Kudos to Hershey on a job well done!!! A must-ride and fun for all!!

I went on both sides facing my siblings and lost both times, I would have gone on more but the park was closing down. This is one of the best woodies ive been on.

An excellent wooden coaster, but a horrible racer/dueler. The ride itself is extremely fun, and gives some decent airtime. The turnaround into the tunnel is the best part. My second favorite woodie aside from The Phoenix at Knoebels. But aside from the fun ride, the racing is decent but the dueling sucks. The ride would be just as fun without the racing/dueling but it adds some variety to Hersheys unique coaster line-up.

My favorite modern wooden racer to date. Great airtime, laterals and some great flybys with the other train. Action packed and very exciting. A racer that really races.

This ride is good but dosent have the "character" that Wildcat has. Both sides have good drops, airtime and smoothness. Good for most ages.
