Installed in 2008 at a cost of $7 million, American Thunder is one of a new breed of wooden coasters that have been installed at theme parks across the US in recent years. It originally featured an Evel Knievel theme, but this was dropped in 2011.

The ride begins with an 80-foot drop, and features a number of "airtime" hills in its compact circuit.
