Awesome the Coney park is getting a new coaster. It looks thrilling! But...please - advertising that the Thunderbolt is making a comeback I'm sure irks those of us who wish it was the original being rebuilt.
So I sat down with some crayons this morning... and doodled the new Coney Island coaster!
Joking aside, it might turn out to be a really fun ride, never know! I guess the 3 across seating isn't too odd. How often do we see 3 in a row on B&Ms? All the time. Good for filling in single riders, too.
At minimum, the video has Debbie Harry at the start At maximum, it could turn out to be a really fun ride!
This actually looks pretty cool. But I am confused on one thing. The announcement states this.
Unlike the original Thunderbolt on the same site — which was immortalized in Woody Allen’s 1977 film “Annie Hall” and then torn down in 2000 to make way for the Mets’ minor-league Brooklyn Cyclones — the new coaster will include thrilling, backward loops, corkscrew turns and a stomach-churning 125-foot drop.
What's the reference to a backwards loops about? I may be being a moron (it happens quite often I assure you) but it looks forwards to me.
