The Thunderbolt starts with a vertical lift and soon after that a vertical drop. The individual trains, seating three across with three rows, head through a large vertical loop, heartline rolls, air-time hills, and other tricks during the ride. The coaster represents a new style from manufacturer Zamperla and was designed to fit an extremely long, narrow plot of land.
To celebrate the opening, Luna Park has released a new point of view film of the ride:
Since the coaster just opened today there are only a few reviews coming in so far, but they all sound positive. I can't wait to head over to Coney Island to take a ride myself.
