Thunderbolt Opening Delayed to May 31

The eagerly awaited Thunderbolt roller coaster at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, will not be up and running for Memorial Day weekend. Its opening is being delayed until May 31.

Owners say they're still awaiting the necessary permits needed to operate the ride and that the rough winter and wet spring slowed down construction.

The $9 million ride by Zamperla is the first custom-built roller coaster in Coney Island since 1927.
