Carowinds' Thunder Road to Close

In a May 23, 2015 posting on its Facebook page, Carowinds, Charlotte, North Carolina, has announced:

"After 39 wonderful years and nearly 40 million scream-filled rides, Thunder Road will give its last race on July 26. The ride is being retired to make room for future family-fun attractions. Please join us this summer as we say good-bye to this iconic coaster."

Taken by surprise by the announcement, Thunder Road fans will need to make plans now to visit the park for their final rides before it closes.
