6 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
During the 2020/2021 off-season sections of the original "Topper Track" (considered wooden) were replaced with "IBox Track" (considered steel). The amount of replaced track was 2,160 feet per a park spokesperson. This amounts to 57% of Lightning Rod's 3,800 feet total track length. Given the majority of track and specifically the record-setting areas (lift hill / drop) were changed from wood to steel, the type has been changed to reflect this. The "model" of "Topper Track" remains as this field is based on how the ride was built and does not reflect modifications.
