HELP

Lightning was a Bolliger & Mabillard inverted roller coaster located at Kuwait Entertainment City. It was identical to the Batman clones at various Six Flags parks. It had an orange track and gray supports. Lightning closed along with the park on June 6, 2016, and both were demolished in 2020. It is one of only two Bolliger & Mabillard coasters to be removed and not relocated. Lightning was partly stored, but has since reportedly been scrapped.[1]
