Rolling Thunder at SFGAm

Monday, April 22, 2002 9:42 AM
Someone reminded me of this amazing ride in another thread. Does anyone have any photos of it? I know that its currently operating at the Great Escape, but I'd like to see what it looked like at Great America, besides just the one photograph on rcdb.com. I totally forgot that I had even ridden it until I read someone say something about it in another post, and then I remember riding with my parents. Only coaster they'd ride!

45 seconds of obstructed views and harsh braking. I'll say this for Great America - whenever they take a ride down, they tend to put something much better in its place.

At the time, I was a very young lad and I only have good memories of that ride! I guess my love for Intamin started earlier than I thought!!

BTW - thankyou Chitown!
