Thunder Dolphin is an Intamin hyper roller coaster located at Tokyo Dome City in Tokyo, Japan. Thunder Dolphin's 3,500 feet long course passes through both a hole in the LaQua building, as well as through the Big O, the world's first hubless Ferris Wheel. The ride is currently the park's only roller coaster as well as the second tallest roller coaster in Asia.


Incident[edit | edit source]

On 5 December 2010, a 25 cm bolt fell from the ride and injured a 9-year-old girl. Following this incident, Thunder Dolphin remained closed until 1 August 2013, nearly 3 years after the incident.
