I saw those pictures on facebook yesterday. That part of the ride was really bad last time I rode Thundercoaster in 2016, so nice to see it getting some care.

Mmmmm, Thundercoaster deserves all the love and attention it can get.

"Main Highlight of the TPR Tours to Tusenfryd." A really great coaster.

Good news, 1/3 of Thunder Coaster has been retracked now and the retracked part is verry smooth. Within the next two years they are going to retrack the rest of the coaster, so when they are done Thunder Coaster will be one smooth ass Vekoma Woodie :)

The Norwegian Tv Show Newton did some experiments on the new VR coaster at TusenFryd. @ 2:17 you can see clips from the ride. Steampunk Hunters is one of the better VR coaster and is an great addition to the park. Only downside is the wait time to ride.

Tusenfryd is still improving Thundercoaster. They are now retracking the first drop and the following turn. I believe this is the last section to be retracked and when the ride opens the entire ride has been refurbished :) It should hopefully ride as good as it did before they got the timberlines :b

Great to see Thundercoaster getting some more TLC. Las time I rode it back in 2016 it was not a very pleasant experience. I might stop by this year if I'm in the area. Hopefully Tusenfryd is also improving on their operations, that has for me been the biggest disappointment with the park over the last visits.

Glad to read they're giving some love to Thundercoaster. It was (and still is at this time) one of my fave wooden coasters, on the TPR Scandi Tours back in 2009 and 2014. And during the (quick and intense) Add-On Part of the 2006 UK Tour, too! Great coaster.
