Rode it for the first time last year and it was horrible to be honest.

A very rough and unenjoyable experience, which is a shame because the layout is actually not bad at all, although I prefer a big drop instead of a turning drop following the chain lift. And the second worst thing about this coaster is the operations. With a small queue line (20-30 people ahead of us) it still took SOO long for them to send the train away from the station. It was ridiculous.

I just don't really see a reason for me to go to this place again instead of Liseberg. The park is just miles behind when it comes to the general atmosphere, theming and ride operations. The ticket prices are fairly similar too. Like someone said in a previous post, it may be unfair to compare them because of locations, but it's not far away from the capital city.

Balder > Thundercoaster
Helix > Speedmonster (Although the launch is better on the latter)
A better logflume, and a better collection of flat rides.

This is not meant to bash the park or anything, it's just how I feel about it.

Give TC the RMC treatment and I'm there! Just a renovation, not so sure. But hopefully it will be a smoother experience!

I Love Donkeys!

Do we have a time table as to when Thundercoaster will open back up again after the renovation? Will it open for the season when the rest of the park does?
I am planning to visit the park in June and I really don't want to miss out on the credit as it seems like a pretty good layout! For anyone that's been on it, what does Thundercoaster offer in terms of airtime?

Thunder Coaster was one of the best things about Tusenfryd, I remember.
Hope the renovation brings TC back up to what it was like, "way back when". :wink:

For anyone that has been to Tusenfryd.

I am planning a trip to the park in June and was wondering what reliable forms of public transportation that there are from Oslo to Tusenfryd. I have looked online but I can't find anyone bookable tickets by bus or train.

Thank you.

You can take bus 500 Drøbak to the park it leaves every 30 minutes and there is also an Express line 500X TusenFryd that also leaves every 30 minutes, so there will be a bus every 15 minutes.
