I do like Trolleys and Street Cars, one of the many reasons I'd like to visit Lake Compounce. ;) I like just about anything on Rails anyway, but the highlight, was operating the 24" Gauge Live Steam Locos at Lagoon for 4 Years. :)

Riverside

Postby montezooma » Sat Apr 04, 2009 7:31 am

RIVERSIDE

Anyone remember what Six Flags New England was like years ago? Well if not, here is a look back at the park formerly known as Riverside. This goes back to the opening year of the Riverside Cyclone which they tout as being based on the legendary Coney Island Cyclone. I fail to see any similarities except for the name.

Of all the old Premier Parks that were transformed into Six Flags I would have to say that the Riverside transformation has been one of the better ones. As part of the team that did the flagging of the park, I have to say I was impressed with the change. Also I am so glad that corporate, after much debate, decided on Six Flags New England rather than Six Flags Riverside!

First off...take a ride on the legendary Riverside Cyclone.

I love how some of the promotional artwork for the Cyclone feature drawings of the Coney Island Cyclone track layout.

They're also making the Riverside Cyclone seem as though it's only a slight modification in design compared to the actual Cyclones patterned after the famed New York coaster. Was it originally supposed to be more similar?

I wish I could've had the chance to ride the original Riverside Cyclone before they shortened the drop.

Great stuff Shane! :b

^ Thanks, The roller coaster graphic they use for the logo is actually the Texas Cyclone, and like I mentioned I think the only inspiration taken from either one of the Cyclones was the name.

I am not an expert on this park by any means I didn't visit it until the mid 90's and I am sure there were many modifications made to the original at that time. I seem to recall at one time the trains on the ride actually had a roof on them, does anyone remember anything about that?

Look at how virginal and pure these two southern California rides looked in their early years. When you look at them now you sure can tell they have been "ridden"
