It's funny... I've been going to Riverside/SFNE all my life and always sort of ignored Thunderbolt, and maybe only rode it once every few years (if that), but last year I went on it in the pouring rain and it was one of the best wooden coaster experiences I ever had... just an insane amount of fun--like laughing the whole time fun. Re-rode a few times, and definitely won't skip over it again. If anything, I would skip Cyclone now, unless it's in the back in the air time seat of death.
