Thunderbird’s Vertical Loop Completed
Holiday World’s Thunderbird wing coaster continues to grow with each passing day.
Last week, the B&M wing coaster’s highest point, the Immelmann inversion, was completed. And now, it’s the vertical loop’s turn.
The 11-ton section of the vertical loop prepares for its ascent. As the nation’s first launched wing coaster, Thunderbird riders will be launched into the Immelmann followed directly by the vertical loop.
And there you have it. Thunderbird’s vertical loop in all its glory.

At this rate, the layout should be completed before the end of the year (if not the end of November).
Remember, you can follow along with Thunderbird’s construction via the live webcam. The coaster is expected to open in spring of 2015.
