Thunderbolt's Towering Start Nearly Complete

Via Wonder World Web Facebook
The new Thunderbolt in Coney Island is rising quickly, with track being applied to the vertical lift and first drop.  Seen above, crews have made quick work of the tower, forever changing the landscape of Coney Island.

The rest of the layout should be put in place equally fast, with elements such as a large vertical loop and many air-time hills still to come.  When the park originally announced a Memorial Day opening for the new Thunderbolt I was doubtful, and while meeting that will still be an immense challenge their progress has certainly been fast thus far!

Stay tuned to the Wonder World Web for updated photos of the Thunderbolt going up, and the official Luna Park feed as well.
