Lightning Runs first riders.


My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

It looks great. I don't know if they were ever actually considering HRP's Zeppelin or if that was just coaster people speculation, but I'm glad they went with this. If it rides as well as it looks, hopefully the small footprint and accompanying price tag help Chance sell more of these.


The trick was to surrender to the flow.

This thing looks like it's hauling through that course! Two of the air time hills in particular look like they weren't made to be experienced that quickly w/ a snap over the top.

I hope this beast can open without any trims, slowed lifts, or softer wheels because the ride it just gave those two guys looks ridiculous.

Sometimes I get lightning runs if I eat too much fried food.

Bran muffins are good for that.

Oh, wait...I have that backwards.

This coaster looks awesome.

I don't understand what all the Lightning Run love is all about. I'm just not feeling the layout. It really doesn't do anything or go anywhere. It looks like some teenager designed it with Roller Coaster Tycoon.

Wait, before you get all crazy mad on me, read on. I might change my mind once I ride it. My initial excitement for the ride could change once I get a better idea of what it is really like.

It has a bunch of hills and no OTSRs.

What does it take to excite some of y'all?

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

If anything with Lightning in its name were ever built in northeast Ohio, regular programming on Cleveland TV stations would be pre-empted 24/7 by multicolor radar weather maps.

Which is better than thunder runs, trust me. When the Kentucky rumbles start? I know I'm in trouble...

You gotta be careful with that. You don't want to trust those Kentucky Rumbles too much or you might wind up with a Mean Streak in your undies.

Looks like fun. I can't wait to ride it Saturday. :-)

I got a Blue Streak the other day. Should I seek medical attention?

From what I see on the commercials for depends and other pad-like devices, blue is perfectly normal.

Better than a Pepsi Orange Streak, I suppose.

If you have a Blue Streak lasting more than 4 hours, you should definitely see a doctor, though.

Chance Rides is back - another American coaster company making good (and good rides).

What's NOT to like?

sirloindude's avatar

Actually, I'm quite interested in trying it out. It strikes me as a Chance version of a mega-lite. However, it was just too easy. I couldn't pass it up.
