I hate to say it, but I'd never heard of the Flyer before this thread. It looks really elegant. :lover:

Thanks for posting this stuff!

I've heard of Screechin' Eagle & wish I was able to ride it. Awesome pics.

I would love to see Screechin' Eagle re-open. I only made it to Americana once when I was very, very young. I remember Screechin' Eagle was closed all day, though.

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

I totally agree. Though I've sworn off most spinning flat rides, I can endure the Zipper for some reason. :?r A Zipper can be great fun if operated properly, but I think the Orbit would be beyond horrific.

I'd love to hear from someone who rode it ... :|

There's a little bonus at the bottom of this post. I'm curious if anyone can shed light on those images.

Scott, what does CNE stand for? It looks like it was a great park.

^ I'm not Scott, but I am glad to answer that question for you!

I just looked it up on RCDB.com, and CNE stands for Canadian National Exhibition.

CNE = Canadian National Exhibition.

It's counterpart is the PNE – Pacific National Exhibition, which makes its home at Vancouver's Playland Park.

^ I did a trip report on the 2008 CNE in Toronto.

I don't think it is anywhere near as cool as it used to be. I seem to recall it being a lot bigger with the coasters, Sky-ride and more amusements. Don't know whether they scaled it back because of operational costs or poor attendance.

The report is about halfway down the page...
