Facts:Bembom Rides purchased this ride from Flamingo Land and did an extensive overhaul/renewal of every part:

  • The electrics were completely renewed and brought up to date by Gerstlauer of Germany.
  • The braking system went back to Zierer to be completely reworked by their workshops.
  • The tracks and pylons were all completely refurbished and brought back to the original standard. Then blasted and painted.
  • The cars were stripped down to their components, renewed, refurbished and a new design was then incorporated for the rebuild. This new design is of a mine car and incorporates a new safety feature. A lap bar system.
  • Once it was erected the ride was subjected to the most scrupulous examination by TÜV and was certificated for use.
Owner / Operator:Grove Land leased the Thunderbolt from Bembom Rides Ltd.
