"Grit your teeth, Bare the Load, Enjoy your Ride, On Thunder Road" is the ominous warning you read going up the first hill on Carowinds wooden racing coaster. There are two trains Both racing forwards again the length of the track. The employees working the ride rarely bother starting both trains at the same time, which is a shame. Thunder Road also has the distinction of crossing the state line between North and South Carolina twice during your trip.
While Thunder Road has been undergoing some renovations, both sides were open for the 2009 opening day. The weather may have been rough, but the ride is so much nicer with the work they have done on this classic. Now if they would just get better trains that an average man can ride in comfortably.
