With a number of innovative and exhilarating new features, Lightning Rod ® is unlike anything the world has seen before.

Something this ground-breaking could only come from the mind of an engineering genius. Known for his eye for detail, his mind for mechanical mastery and his steely nerves, Johnny Revere has finally opened the doors of Revere’s Gas & Service—his meticulously maintained garage—to the public. It’s here where his hot rod wizardry takes shape.

Johnny Rev, as his friends affectionately call him, grew up with adrenaline coursing through his veins. His family’s reputation was built on years of spinning wrenches and tuning engines, and now Johnny is the go-to guy for those with an unquenchable need for speed. Never one to settle, each of Johnny’s hot rods is more impressive than the one before. Finally, after months of tinkering, Johnny invites Dollywood guests to sit behind the wheel for the first test drive of Lightning Rod, his newest flashy, world record-breaking creation.

Like any proper hot rod, massive header pipes and an imposing injector scoop peer out from the radical ride’s flamed bodywork.

After launching from the starting line, Lightning Rod’s g-forces push riders deep in their seats as the marvelous machine takes them on an adrenaline-charged lap through the hills just behind Johnny’s hot rod shop. Capable of maneuvers no other hot rod has ever been able to perform, Lightning Rod will leave Dollywood guests with an experience they’ll never forget.
