Timberhawk is a nice coaster with a great twisting middle part. I was dissappointed that there wasnt any air on the bunny hops but the rest of the ride made up for that. Still one of the better woodies out there!

For a coaster this old I expected it to be very painful and rough. Thunderhawk has great speed and hills which provide some airtime. Some portions are rough, but doesnt ruin the ride.

The Thunderhawk is a wood O&B roller coaster. It was built by PTC in 1923. It is 80' tall, 2,767' long, it is 45 mph, it travels at speeds of 45 mph. It lasts 1:18. It has a large capacity, and a long ride duration. It is fun, and rerideable.

I love this ride. Bigger, faster and newer is not always better. Forget the notion that the back seat delivers the best ride and climb in the front seat of this classic. You are nearly torn from your seat at the crest of each hill. The coaster delivers effective laterals on the second and third drops. The only drawback on this near perfect ride is the addition of a trim brake on the second hill of the bunny hill run back to the station. Landscaping at the station accents the loving care that has kept this ride a classic treasure.

This coaster was much more thrilling on my previous visit when they ran it breakless. The ride is good and way above average if they run it brakeless!

Tons of airtime and that curved hill in the middle of the ride looks like your gonna hit the side of the coaster. This is a coaster that you shouldnt miss!

Woodies arent my favorite type of coaster, but this one was pretty good. Nice airtime on the hills with some great turns and some cool trick track. Even though it is a very old coaster, it provided a fun ride.
