That was really awesome Shane! We never went to Kings Dominion when I was little, but was vaguely aware of it starting around the early 90's probably. It was great to see all that awesome early stuff.

I just moved out to Seattle and we have an awesomely huge video store, so this weekend we're going to rent Rollercoaster and watch it in a double bill with Kiss Meets The Phantom Of The Park. :b

On the the Rocket, how does the lights on the train work? Kinetic energy? Batteries?

Here is an update dedicated to all you credit whores. Those of you that travel to the far reaches for a Pinfari Zyclone or one of those funky wacky worm coasters...This is for you.

Here are a couple early catalogs from the Italian Coaster manufacturer Pinfari.

Thanks for all of your work in loading in all of this interesting stuff - and posting it here. I'm sure most of this stuff would be hard to find elsewhere on the 'net.

This is by far the Biggest and Best thread on this site/messageboard...I know there have been many thanks and tons of pats on the back, but I just wanted to add one from me.

ADMIN EDIT - Removed another totally unnecessary dig at another TPR Member.

Thanks for posting Shane. This thread is probably one of the best sources on the net for roller coaster info. Please keep 'em coming!

On a side note:
Has anyone else noticed that Raging Spirits at TDL and Indiana Jones at DLRP are almost exactly copied from the looping "TL 59"? (Without the pain I'm sure.)

Thanks for posting these pictures Shane!

Pinfaris were (and still are) a staple diet of the British seaside amusement park. Whilst the company may be gone, I know that a few other manufacturers have got hold of the Big Apple/Wacky Worm designs, and D.P.V. (which came from the ashes of the old Pinfari company) have built a Z40 clone in Devon, so they may be getting produced for some time yet! Not sure about the other stuff like the looping coasters though.

^^I believe that Pinfari was actually involved with the project but ended up having to back out.
