Lightning is a steel inverted roller coaster located at Kuwait Entertainment City in Kuwait City. The ride opened in 2004 and was built by Swiss manufacturers Bolliger & Mabillard. Lightning's layout is identical to that of the Batman: The Ride clone that appears in many Six Flags parks in the United States. The coaster closed along with the park on June 6th 2016 and is currently Standing But Not Operating due to the park being closed for renovations.. [1]
