Rolling Thunder was a dual-track, racing wooden coaster with ten hills to cruise. This roller coaster differed from the racers built for Kings Island and Kings Dominion since it featured two out and back, figure-8 tracks that are completely different. Unfortunately, Rolling Thunder closed forever on September 8, 2013 and has been demolished.
