Rolling Thunder was a racing wooden roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, United States. The ride was the park's first wooden coaster, and debuted in 1979 during the park's fifth anniversary season.
In August 2013, Six Flags announced Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom. The park wanted to use the queue line to the right of Kingda Ka, but the vintage Rolling Thunder blocked any path from taking place. Rolling Thunder closed on September 8, 2013. A part of Rolling Thunder's track still exists and is in the park where El Toro is now, next to the coaster.
