This iconic wooden racing coaster will carry its final guests on July 26, 2015. This dual-track, racing, wood roller coaster features an "out and back" layout starting from the 93-foot tall lift hill. During the ride on Thunder Road you actually pass through two US States, since it is built over the North Carolina and South Carolina border. Carowinds operates one side with the train facing forwards and the opposite track with the train facing backwards.
