OWA is a brand-new amusement park currently under construction on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, and the Rollin’ Thunder roller will be the headline attraction. Designed by Italian amusement ride company Zamperla, Rollin’ Thunder will be similar to Thunderbolt, which returned to Brooklyn, New York’s Coney Island in 2014. Rollin’ Thunder will be a steel coaster taking riders up a vertical lift rising over 100 feet. Once riders reach the top of the hill, the train will release into the nearly vertical drop, a 98-foot loop, with inversions at approximately 65 mph. After, riders return to the station following a series of “out-of-your-seat” hills.” Please click here to read the full article.
