Crystal Beach Cyclone mirror clone?

Postby RMC_Hoodie » Sun Sep 10, 2017 8:16 pm

I found this on part of a "Coney Island" reel. Skip to 1:01.



A lot of it is footage from Coney Island itself, but the other wooden coaster before this one probably isn't. The other footage isn't mirrored, so I wonder if there was a fourth Cyclone which actually was a mirror image of the other three.

Probably the Revere Beach Lightning. Glad I held on to my "Harry G. Travers: Legends Of Terror" book! Comes in handy. Plus, it's really freakin awesome. There were 3 of the models built.... that I knew of. I had never heard of a 4th mirrored version. Enlighten me!

I never heard of one, either. I hoped that somebody here would know. But the Lightning wasn't mirrored.

But I should definitely get my hands on that book. Maybe next year.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

It's definitely one of the "Traver Triplets," but it's difficult to tell which one without more background detail. The only one I know of that has film of it running is the one at Crystal Beach. None of the triplets were mirrors, so I'm guessing that the footage was somehow mirrored.
