The vertical loop on Greezed Lightnin' when it was called Tidal Wave at Six Flags Great America.

Greezed Lightnin' was a Schwarzkopf launched shuttle roller coaster located at Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. It closed in 2009 and was dismantled in July 2013.

History[edit | edit source]

Greezed Lightnin' was relocated from Six Flags Over Georgia, where it operated from 1995 to 2001.[1]

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

Greezed Lightnin' launches from the station to a top speed of 57 mph (92 km/h) in a total of six seconds. Next, the ride travels through a vertical loop and up a 70 degree incline. At this point, the ride fall backwards through the entire design and past the station to another incline. After climbing and falling down that incline, the train slowly brakes into the station.
