Since 2011, Motley Crue shows had something no one else had: a drum set on a roller coaster track that went a full 360 degrees. Drummer Tommy Lee would perform solos while spinning around the track and at times hanging completely upside down. These light-and-effects-heavy solos were certainly fan favorites.

However, Motley Crue's May 25 show at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City marked the end of the 360-degree drum track. Lee tweeted about the sending off of his special drum coaster.

Each night, Lee would pick a fan to ride with him on the roller coaster while he played. So they may be saddened to hear that there will be no future chances to ride. However, Lee also tweeted about future plans, reassuring fans that there was more to come, saying "Dont you all worry! Just wait til ya see what crazy I got for ya next!"

It will be interesting to see how he tops the drum coaster, but if anyone can do it, Tommy Lee is someone worth betting on.
