Thunder Road was a Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters wooden roller coaster located at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. It was a twin roller coaster, featuring two individual tracks that ran parallel each other.
The coaster was built across the Carolinas state line. The coaster began in South Carolina and then crossed into North Carolina.
On April 5, 1999, a sensor failure caused a collision between a train and an empty train in the station. Sixteen riders were onboard, seven of whom were injured. The roller coaster reopened on April 9 following a replacement of all sensors.
