Rolling Thunder was a racing wooden roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, USA. The ride was the park's first wooden coaster and debuted in 1979 during the park's fifth anniversary season.
Rolling Thunder opened on June 6, 1979.
In August 2013, Six Flags Great Adventure announced Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom. The park wanted to build the queue line to the right of Kingda Ka, but the vintage Rolling Thunder blocked any path from taking place. Rolling Thunder also sat right next to El Toro, a steeper, taller, faster, and smoother Intamin prefabricated wooden roller coaster. Rolling Thunder closed on September 8, 2013 in order for Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom's queue line to be built. The bottom of Rolling Thunder's first drop still exists and sits directly under El Toro.
