Excellent pictures Scott, as always thanks for sharing. I recognize a few of these from your book, "The American Rollercoaster". I really love the areal pic of Rye Playland!

Awesome stuff, its nice to see these long lost classics considering they don't make them like they used to.

Thanks, everyone. I'm just glad there's still some appreciation for history of this industry! :)

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Really stunning photos Scott. I love seeing old woodies in black and white. Thanks for sharing these and good to see you have shaken off the winter doldrums!

It's always fun to look at days gone by. I love people wearing "Sunday's Best" clothing to visit parks. Great update, wonderful old pics, Thanks.

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

Those were great pictures. I can't say that I've ever seen any pictures of Flying Turns coasters, so that was neat to see. It gives me an urge to ride the one at Knoebels when it opens.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Just in case you are interested, here is a full POV of Screechin' Eagle.

Excellent pictures - thank you for sharing.

I can't get over how similar some of those trains look like the GCI Millenium Flyer trains (single articulating bench). Of course, I'm sure that's where they got the idea from!
Got Yeti? Expedition Everest does...
