Day 17- Re-introduce Lighting on Rolling Thunder

Recommended Posts

Rolling Thunder used to look absolutely AMAZING after dark with uplights shining on the white structure. Just like with the Fort, new lighting would be a great part of a rehab, and using new energy efficient LEDs could make changing colors a possibility. Picture the structure in green or purple for Fright Fest, or changing colors throughout the night.

Rolling Thunder is definitely the next coaster that needs redone. Dont change the name, but add new lightning, a new fresh white coat of paint, ect.

RT is long overdo for an update of its braking systems and additional track replacement. Changing out the rolling stock with open cars wouldn't be a bad idea either as long as they are GCI or PTC cars.

All in all, RT needs new cars, tracks, updated brakes, a redone paint job, an updated station, and a better ride experience at night. Even though I'm all for riding RT in pitch black, new lights don't sound like that bad an idea. If this does happen, I'd like a seperate "dark" night when they don't light it for a more thrilling experience (like every sunday of something). :)

I think that if the texas giant rehab goes well we will see our classic get a full update, although i doo like the breaking system on thunder, it gives the ride that classic feel when comming into the station. Im hoping that they do relight up thunder though it would look great from Ka! and GASM. all in all thunder is great and just needs some love!

Well, I like the brakes too! But, replace them with more modern, smooth, and rain resistant brakes that give the same feel. And, if Toro and RT were dedigned right, there should be no difference in the night rides, exept for a better view...

Actually, it was sort of a race coaster from day 1 but as crowds for the coaster dropped for more modern coasters, they only used (for the most part) the right track.
