Thunder Canyon


Type: Water Attraction
Seating: 12 passengers per raft
Speed: 15 MPH
Manufacturer: Intamin AG

In May of 1986, Thunder Canyon opened on Cedar Point’s Frontier Trail. Manufactured by Intamin, the ride includes five waterfalls, along with constant use of rapids and turns.

The water comes straight from Lake Erie, and is drained after every night of operation. Thunder Canyon has beautiful rock work that looms over riders throughout the course of the ride.

In fall months, Thunder Canyon is transformed into Cornstalkers. Cornstalkers is a Halloweekend walkthrough haunt, in which patrons walk through the trough of the ride that is designed to feel like a secluded cornfield.
