Six Flags Great Adventure Coaster Removal & Drop Tower Rumors

Roller Coaster News

Last month, ScreamScape shared a rumor involving Rolling Thunder, a mega drop ride, and Kingda Ka.

Lex Luthor Drop of Doom - Six Flags Magic Mountain

Rolling Thunder’s Demise & An East Coast Mega Drop Tower?

Rolling Thunder is Great Adventure’s 1979 racing wooden roller coaster. It’s got to be in my top 20 roughest woodies. So, I’m not shocked to hear about it’s possible removal. Lance from ScreamScape has noted the ride’s proximity to strata coaster Kingda Ka. And, like the theme park news detective he is, he pieced this rumor with another about a 400+ foot tall drop tower ride like Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom at Six Flags Magic Mountain. That drop ride was mounted to the side of Superman: Escape from Krypton and there’s been talk of using Kingda Ka’s tower structure to build a similar drop tower ride.

Again, these are just rumors for now. Six Flags Great Adventure has not announced plans of either of these moves.

What’s Your Take?
What you think of both of these rumors? Would you like to see Rolling Thunder removed? Would you be excited for a drop tower ride at Great Adventure?
