RMC Rolling Thunder

Recommended Posts

This isn’t really an idea for the park since it’s now impossible but after seeing RMC transform rides like Mean Streak/Gwazi/TC into these insane new hybrid coasters and reading the reviews of how amazing these rides are, it makes me question why Six Flags never thought about  giving Rolling Thunder the RMC treatment.
 

The excuse for RT being removed in the first place was for Zumanjaro’s queue (which still seems like BS to me). There was so much potential for greatness with the length of track and space RT had. Was it out of the budget at the time? or maybe the structure couldn’t handle a refurbishment? What do you guys think?

At its time of removal the structure barely supported the existing ride let alone an RMC transformation.  It would have required a near total replacement to keep it running.

Ahh makes sense. I guess that’s where the name Rotting Lumber came from. 
 

It’s sad that it wasn't maintained properly. Theres a lot of wooden coasters significantly older than RT that are still running. I just hope the park learned a lesson and gives El Toro the extra attention it deserves.
