Lil' Thunder was a steel non looping children's rollercoaster that operated from 1976 to 1983 at Six Flags Great Adventure. It was designed by Herschell.

The coaster was built for the 1976 season and known as "The Kiddie Coaster". The coaster was built for children under 54 inches (1,400 mm) tall. Adults had to be accompanied by a child in order to ride. After the Rolling Thunder roller coaster was built and opened in 1979, The Kiddie Coaster was renamed "Lil' Thunder" because it was adjacent to that coaster and was for children either too small, too scared for Rolling Thunder, or both.

The coaster was removed at the end of the 1983 season to make room for more flat rides.
