Racing wooden coaster
Closure date

This racing wooden coaster has a leg up on its sister rides - it's not simply blue vs. red, or forward vs. backward. Thunder Road embraces Carowinds' state-straddling location and allows riders to choose either the North Carolina or South Carolina side! Either way, it's a leaping, dipping, classic wooden race to the finish with a different winner each time!
