Have you ever gone from zero to 60 m.p.h. in three and a half seconds while dangling off the side of a steel track? The only place in the world you can experience that is on the new Thunderbird wing launch roller coaster opening this spring at Holiday World, Indiana, one of the 10 most exciting amusement parks to visit this year. As it goes in the industry, there will always be records to break, thrills to enhance, and screams to ignite, and this year is no exception. With the season just underway, new boundary-pushing roller coasters (as well as rewarding new expansions and family-friendly additions) are already setting hearts aflutter.
