Time for Rolling Thunder to Roll Out?

Flickr user Roller Coaster Photography

Some nostalgic patrons of Six Flags Great Adventure don’t seem to think so. Since 1979, the wooden roller coaster has been a staple to the Jackson theme park, but since plans for new ride, Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, are underway for 2014, it looks like Rolling Thunder is going to be torn down and replaced come September. Plummeting 415 feet at 90mph, Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom will be the tallest drop tower in the world.

Unfortunately, not everyone is excited about the change. Kara Silverman of Glenside, PA recently created a petition on change.org in hopes of keeping Rolling Thunder rollin’ with nearly 700 supporters. Many patrons argue that Rolling Thunder is a historic ride and a good roller coaster for the whole family.

Check out video what Six Flags has planned to replace Rolling Thunder below.
