About the Ride Info Box

Tornado is a wooden roller coaster located in County Fair. It opened on July 4, 1978.

The coaster has two trains - red and blue. Originally, both would run at the same time, with one loading and dispatching before the other returned to the station. Once seatbelts were added in XXXX, it increased the load/unload time and the park went to running just one train. The park now runs on train until around July 4th, then switches to the other for the rest of the season.
