Thunderhawk is a steel inverted roller coaster located at Michigan's Adventure in Muskegon, Michigan, USA.

History[edit | edit source]

When Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom announced that they would no longer operate as a traditional amusement park, and instead become solely a waterpark, Wildwater Kingdom. Later, on October 7, 2007, Michigan's Adventure announced that Thunderhawk would be relocated to its park.

The park repainted the supports and track so the ride looked newer and different from its former home.
