Even though the park was permanently closed, I was able to get close enough to Thunder Eagle to take these pictures in 2002. It was so sad to see a nearly new coaster rotting away.
In January 2003, the coaster was listed for sale with an asking price of a little over $600,000. Since then, it has been disassembled and moved to both Canada and Mexico, but has yet to reopen to the public. Only time will tell if it ever operates again.
