GREAT FALLS — Wheels Of Thunder has re-opened, now that Montana has entered "phase two" of Montana's reopening.

Owner Janine Hieb says business was booming before they shut down operations more than in March due to COVID-19 restrictions. “When this hit, I was getting over 1,000 people in a weekend and then there’s nothing,” she said. “And that is so hard to come back from.”

But on Thursday, the roller-skating rink was back in business, welcoming skaters of all ages.

During their closure, Hieb says she updated some things inside including adding more room to the concessions area, interior paint, several new arcade games that are set to arrive by summer, a ticket booth and prizes.
