NOTE! Onride footage in this video has been shot by an experienced ride photographer. For rider safety reasons, Please DO NOT take a camera on any ride or roller coaster without proper training or permission from park management.
I took this video on 9/5/08, the last Friday Astroland was open. I used a c-clamp with a camera mount on it and clamped it onto the lapbar. The video is shot a bit low until I adjust it at around 2:15 and at 3:36 the ride op acknowledges that I'm filming.
Coney Island's Astroland closed for the last time on 9/7/08 and this ride is currently up for sale on Rides4U for $299,000. I'll certainly miss this ride!
