Like its equally famous sibling, the Cylone, the original Thunderbolt was a classic Coney Island coaster. Built in 1925, it thrilled generations of riders until it was closed in 1982.
It was immortalized in Woody Allen's 1977 film, Annie Hall, in which the filmmaker's character, Alvy Singer, lived in a home under the coaster. Incredibly, there was a real house with occupants beneath the actual coaster.
2014’s Thunderbolt may share a name and location with the original, but it’s built to deliver modern day thrills. At 125 feet in the air going 65 miles an hour down the 92 degree drop be prepared for an adrenaline rush on Coney Island’s first custom coaster since the Cyclone.
