This is Lightning Racer

The curved first drop of both sides provides great air time.

This is Lightning Racer, the first and only dueling and racing wooden roller coasters in the United States. Added to Hersheypark in 2000, Lightning Racer consists of two different tracks - one named "Lightning" and the other named "Thunder", thus creating a unique thunderstorm theme. Lightning Racer has a total of 15 drops and both trains go a little over 50 miles per hour at the bottom of the first 90-foot drop. This is Hersheypark's 8th roller coaster, and in my opinion, it's best. (Picture courtesy of
