    Airtimes Masterpiece Intensity

    Out of 159 credits including Steel Vengeance, Japanese and Chinese Credits, most of the East Coaster, Lighting Rod reigns not only as my #1 wooden but #1 overall.

    Intensity Discomfort

    I rode it twice, once in the back row and once in the middle, and both were some of the least enjoyable rides i've ever been on. The layout is awesome, but the ride just hurt like hell and was incredibly uncomfortable. The ride broke down both times we were in line as well, making it even less enjoyable. Almost all other reviews seem to say this coaster is amazing though. So maybe it just had an off day? I'll try it again next time I'm in the area, and can hopefully update my rating.

    Airtimes Masterpiece Ejectors

    Lightning Rod is the best coaster I have yet ridden out of 280 different coasters. Although it is a short ride, the layout leaves very little to be desired as a lot is accomplished in every element of the ride. Every single moment of Lightning Rod features ejector airtime, and although the airtime may not be as strong as El Toro, the different sensations of airtime found during the first wave turn (my favorite element of the ride), the outward banked turn, and the final overbank were pure bliss. While the launch has been troublesome to the ride's reliability, it is what makes the rest of the ride paced so well. What sets Lightning Rod apart from other rides is an amazing ride paired with theming, as most coasters are stellar in only one of those aspects. Lightning Rod is a near-perfect roller coaster experience, and is a must ride for every enthusiast out there.

    First Drop Pace Intensity Too short

    Lightning Rod is the king of ejector air. The launch is neat, the location is great, it is truly a relentless beast, but, frankly, the imfamous quadruple-down makes this coaster. To put it simply, Lighting Rod is a full buffet-worth of airtime that Dollywood aggressively shoves down your throat till you simply can't handle anymore. This is the type or coaster that you are out of breath on when you arrive back at the station. Somehow despite its incredible intensity, this coaster remains comfortable too. Fast, smooth, and ferocious—what's not to love?

    What a wild and intense ride! Love the "launched" lift hill, the pre-drop and the following "first drop". The rest of the layout hugs the terrain and was a little bit too hectic for my tastes (especially the quadruple down wasn't as fun as I expected - you are thrown against the restraints four times in a row). After riding Wildfire in Kolmarden, I also wish they had added an inversion or two, because RMC inversions are exceptionally great. But still, one of the best coasters I have ever ridden.

    One of the best coasters ever built, it's just not the most comfortable ever.
