|Racing is what most dual track coasters do and the Lightning Racer is no different. While the tracks are not as parallel as in some racing coasters, there is still plenty of side by side action. But on the Lightning Racer the trains are at some beautifully wicked angles while racing.|
Both trains come off the lift hill to begin their journey.
Notice how even the two trains are going down the first drop - it will be difficult to predict the winner of this one.
Both trains fly through the middle of the impressive Lightning Racer structure.
