This concept art for a new mall complex in Foley, Alabama was released. It will open in three phases with the first being the mall strip, the second being the park, and the third being the waterpark. By the looks of it the park will be a Zamperla showcase similar to Coney Island as it has many Zamperla flats and what looks to be a Thunderbolt clone and a spinning coaster. Phase one is expected to open in 2017.

Lol only Alabama deserves the horrors of a Thunderbolt clone.

Did these people ride Thunderbolt? Lol. It's one of the most poorly built coasters I've ever ridden. It's not a terrible coaster, but why on earth would they want one? Just get a Gerstlauer Infinity and you'll get that extra money you spend back.

Looks like Zamperla thought Thunderbolt's restraint design wasn't bad enough yet.

To paraphrase a POV video of Thunderbolt:

"How can something so new be that bad?"

GL Alabama with this one. I almost think Golden Horse would have been a better choice.

EDIT: Changed China to Alabama cause I don't readz good and assumed the Chinese made this poor a decision.

IDK we'll see. I've heard Thunderbolt is a TERRIBLE ride from the trains.

For the last time, it ain't that bad. It's not that good but it's definitely not abysmally bad.
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

Here's an older picture before the track was completed. You can see the pathwork going around the ride.
