Thunder Run was designed for LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park, however it was never built. It opened in August 1990.
Thunder Run closed with the park in 2009 due to bankruptcy.
After standing but not operating for four years, Thunder Run ran with a small group of people in 2014. It reopened with the rest of the park on May 24, 2014. For the 2017 season, Thunder Run would receive a new train from the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and various modifications will be made to the track.
Carowinds features a mirrored version of this ride, known as Hurler. Kings Dominion also featured a Hurler clone, however this closed in 2015 to be converted into a Rocky Mountain Construction I-Box roller coaster named Twisted Timbers, which opened three years later on March 24, 2018.
