Welcome to Season II of Scott's Coaster Closet. I decided to change the name from 'Amusement' to 'Coaster' since most of my posts tend to focus on the nuts and bolts (and manual brakes!) of roller coasters as opposed to the entire park. Everything else is covered by my longtime friend Shane Huish over at Shane's Amusement Attic
Season II of of the Closet continues our long, undulating trip down memory lane with various bits and pieces from my seemingly bottomless collection of coaster photos and memorabilia. Every now again I'll toss in info or pics of an old iron ride or other quirky attraction that catches my attention.
So, without further delay ... slip under the fixed lap bar and hang on. It's gonna be a bumpy ride!
Yes, I know Scott has some great stuff and I am really looking forward to seeing stuff that I don't have. I am sure that Scott's stuff will be even MORE retro than mine since he is YEARS older than I am...lol
I think it is really great to read all the news about stuff that is going on in theme parks today, but I also love hearing stories of how things were. Also being able to see the transformation these parks have gone through is really cool.
I am glad to see that my thread has inspired others to share some of their history.
I'm really happy to see so many people posting 'retro' stuff. I think as much as the "next big thing" is so interesting to us, so are the photos and information of parks and attractions of the years gone by.
One of the focuses of TPR in the very near future will be a complete update and revamp of our 'Park Index' section, and I'll be very happy to include all this great retro stuff that we've been fortuante enough to have everyone contributing.
Thanks again Scott! Looking forward to seeing your updates.
