Thunderhawk is a wooden roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. Opened in 1923 as "The Coaster" (also, at the time, known as "Yellow Rollercoaster"), it is very old and is a perfect example of an old-fashioned American roller coaster with thrilling out-of-seat airtime pops.
