Think of Thunderbolt Mountain Coaster as a combination alpine slide and roller coaster. The Thunderbolt takes riders up 1,580 feet of up-track through the forest before the cart disengages, and gravity takes over. The 3,870 feet of downhill track are designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing you to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels. (maximum weight 300 lbs.)

From the time you get on a cart and towed to the launch point, and come down the mountain the average time is 10 minutes per ride. You control the speed so some will go faster than others. 2 rides per person included.

Lunch will be at the West End Pub which is located at the west end of the Bridge of Flowers and alongside the river. Please note that they do not take reservations for large parties, but will do their best to accommodate all guests on their waiting list. Cost of lunch is not included in the trip price. After Lunch take time to explore and take pictures on Bridge of Flowers

The last stop of the day will be at Yankee Candle Village in Deerfield where you will find numerous displays and a fun atmosphere. There is a Christmas village and a Santa’s Workshop a Bavarian forest with a model train display a candy store and of course make your own candle work stations.

Return to Boston at 7:00pm
