History[edit | edit source]
Greezed Lightnin' originally opened as Tidal Wave at Six Flags Great America on May 6, 1978. After its closure in 2001, it was relocated to Six Flags Over Georgia. There, it would be renamed Viper and reopen on April 29, 1995. This was the only launched coaster at the park. The attraction closed on September 16, 2001. It reopened at Kentucky Kingdom on April 25, 2003 as Greezed Lightnin'.
Design[edit | edit source]
Greezed Lightnin' launches from the station to a top speed of 57 mph in a total of 6 seconds. Next, the ride travels through a vertical loop and up a 70° 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.
