Thunderbolt is 50 feet tall and 1,430 feet long. It opened in 1999 as Firestorm and was the only one of the three original Branson USA coasters remaining after the park switched over to Celebration City. It originally operated in the early 1990s in Belgium. The trains on this coaster were updated in 2003. The coaster sat dormant for years after Celebration City closed in October 2008. In 2012, it was moved to Colorado and opened as Cliffhanger at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.
