Opened in time for Six Flags Great Adventure's fifth anniversary celebrations, Rolling Thunder is a racing wooden coaster that features two similar circuits. The ride's four trains can hold up to 24 riders each, and are often swapped from one track to another at the end of each season.

While the two circuits do feature some minor differences, both boast an 85-foot first drop, with riders hitting a top speed of 56 miles per hour.
