Very cool spot. Walking up you hear the reason why it got its name. Not every wave coming in gives the thunderous blast but if you wait, you will get a good one. The tide was fairly low when we were there. Easy to get to right off the road with a good amount of parking or take the shuttle to all the destinations along the park.
