The amazing Thunderbolt..Would you go on it?
Now, almost completed, the new version is do up in three weeks and it is quite different from the old, it's orange and snakes around through the lot, and looks pretty scary to me. I asked some people if they would go on it who were viewing it's construction including one of the hard hats who was in charge of making sure people didn't get hurt while they were constructing. He told me, it does a full 90 degree turn, whatever that means and he said he himself would not go on it.
I don't go to amusement parks or anything like Six Flags, so this is the scariest I've seen. But it kind of looks cool with the rest of old Coney Island in background as long as they keep it that way.
I however, will not be going on it. I asked someone from out of state and she also told me she would not ride on it.
Do you think you would? I'm pretty sure you can see the Manhattan skyline from the top.
The last three pictures are of the old Steeplechase, from a historic billboard they have on the boardwalk.
