I was so excited to see Scott's Amusement Closet back up at the top again. I was hoping for some juicy bit of Roller Coaster history...

I sure hope that your closet is not empty and is still full of historical goodness!!!

PS- Mexico City???

Oh, the Closet is packed with plenty of retro coaster goodness. I've been on the road all summer, but I'm gearing up for Season II and will begin to post in the Fall.

As for Mexico ... I'm working on it. Will let you know soon. I'm also checking with Isla San Marcos to see what Thriller's operating schedule will be in OCT. Just think, Kennywood's Laser Loop, Dreier Looping & Thriller all in one weekend! I feel like I'm back in 1989 in Munich/Stuttgart! (':b')

Haha, Elissa is so sexy braking Meteor train! ;)

It reminds me the first time I saw these manual brakes... It shocked me! But now I like them... Not as Scott does, but I like! =D

I love the Big 'Ol Brake Levers as well, such a great way to slow n stop a coaster.

The trains for Rye Playland Dragon are sexy, I bet there they don't have a seatbelt to hold you in, just hold-on to those "bars" :)

I saw those old brakes, and when I saw them on photo's I thought they were for decoration.
When I was in Cedar point 7 years ago, I rided blue streak to. Were the brakes still there that year?
Nice update, brake fanatic ;)

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing.
I too share this fascination with Good 'Ole Hand Brakes.

I was going to add a couple photo's that I recently took of Meteor's and Comet's Hand Brakes, but it looks like Rob beat me to it.

I'm looking forward to seeing what else gets brought out of the closet.
Thanks again for sharing.
