I am just curious. That is my #1 wooden coaster right now. I want to hear other opinions.

It's my #1 as well, finally knocking Thunderbolt out of the top spot. The dueling/racing makes the ride that much more fun, especially when you know someone in the opposing train. I can't wait to get back to Hershey and ride it again.

Its amazing. An all in all great ride with just about everything i could want in a coaster. The fact that its in a great park doesn't hurt either.

That coaster looks amazing. I wish I had the time to get up there. How is the smoothness? Is it a real bruiser?

Lightning Racer is a great ride. I loved racing my family on the other side.

If I had a top ten it would most likely be there! That ride is so much fun.

Its smooth as butter. Well, really lumpy butter. Its smooth but the wildly twisted track design makes it rock and roll like a great coaster should.

It's as smooth as a wooden coaster should be. :)

Lightning Racer is very smooth and one of my favorite coasters.

It is a great ride, smooth and quite fast. The new 'pulse' brakes that were installed this spring allows for a smooth finish into the station.

Lightning Racer convinced me that every woodie should have Millennium Flyers on it. :)

Those Millenium Flyer trains are the best thing to come along for a wooden coaster for a while..I think they even top that Loop at PKI...:)

I'd have to agree about those trains. From looking at pictures, I seriously wondered how possibly smooth it could be. Well, let's just say I was very pleasantly surprised.

It's a great ride. I don't really keep top ten lists or anything like that, and Knoebel's Phoenix is currently my favorite wooden coaster, but Lightning Racer would definitely be high on my list. Possibly #2. :)

Lightning Racer convinced me that NO coasters should have Millenium Flyers...I hate those trains with a passion.
