 Review of Rolling Thunder @ Six Flags Great Adventure
-2 Rating Posted by: 3r1c on 7/13/2003 12:17:00 PM
If Six Flags would take care of it, maybe it would be better. It was not racing when I was there, but I did ride the left side. Rolling Thunder begins with a squeaky turn onto the lift. The first drop produces some reasonable airtime, as well as the second drop. The turnaround produces a small amount of laterals. During this time, the car is squeaking and the ride is very bouny, but not rough. the bunny hops, which look like they could give some airtime do not and the squeaking becomes even worse. The ride was OK, but it needs some work.

The good news is, they are doing a lot of rehaul on the coaster (finally), the better news is, it has actually raced this year. Yes, on July 4th they opened the right side and raced it, until a mechanical failure on the right side closed it again. I am told that the right side has had massive track work done to it, at that now it is running better then ever. You had the missfortune of only riding on the left side, which has not had any work on it yet. As soon as they get the right side running with regularity, they are going to close the left side and do the work on that. I am looking forward to RT being back in the form it was 15 years ago (or better ).

Thats really good news. Now all they need is a power supply for Chiller so it can duel.
