Although I've never personally been to Ghost Town in the Sky, I've ridden an O D Hopkins coaster, so I thought the concept terrifying enough for the SCAREadice theme...

The Ghost Town site suggests the park was open this year, but maybe not the coaster, which they're now calling the Cliff Hanger. Interesting photos of some VERY unusual trains for this one at rcdb.

I rode the Red Devil back when it was a new addition to the park. It is one of the weirdest rides I have ever been on. The location, the manufacturer, the train, the loop and the layout...all very strange. I have a video of the ride that I will be posting to my thread soon.

Rattler

Postby montezooma » Fri Oct 10, 2008 8:33 am

OK...back on topic. I am running low on scary themes. I think the eyes on the logo are kind of spooky.

I rode this ride opening season. OMFG was that drop incredible! Those of us that were lucky enough to experience it will never forget it. Those of you that missed it, sorry you missed out on one of the best roller coaster experiences!!!!

The Rattler in it's true form.

Pictured on this creepy card is the UK's only Arrow suspended coaster with its original heavily themed (and heavy) trains. After its tenth season the ride closed for renovation, which included new floorless trains from Vekoma. Not as spooky to view, but probably much more thrilling from the riders' perspective.

Mark, Shane, restoca (sorry don't know your real name), these postcards are great I have started adding them in the Park Index pages under the heading of nostaglia. Keep em coming.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

^^^ I rode The Rattler for my first time summer '07 and wow BORING! It's too bad all the venom has been sucked out of it.

^^ Give that man a Golden Ticket award! "Best Halloween Postcard" category...takes the cake no doubt, or would that be blood pudding?

^ Larry...great idea! Hopefully that will encourage others to share from their collections. Props to you!

Today's vampire is of the much more common variety. This particular one is sort of nomadic. It used to live in China prior to Kentucky, and now lives in Massachusetts.
