The Thunderbolt was a wooden roller coaster located at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. It operated from 1925 until 1982 and was finally demolished in autumn 2000. It was designed by John Miller.
History
It was featured briefly in Woody Allen’s 1977 film Annie Hall1 as the boyhood home of Alvy Singer (Allen’s character). The house was a real residence, built in 1895 as the Kensington Hotel. (The coaster was constructed atop this building.)
