Rumor has it Fred Church haunts that tower next to Tornado (Bobs)
EDIT: I actually found that out from one of my books I own... Was that yours? I saw the above comment saying that someone saw the pics from you book... LOL whoops.
There WAS a legend that LaMarcus Thompson haunted that ornate tower, despite having died six years before it was built.
The two pics from my books are the OV Rocket and COP Flying Turns shot.

Thanks, Thriller. I've got a stack of postcards to add to your stellar thread, I just need to go through all yours so as not to post a dupe card.

Wow.... this is classic stuff... amazing how cool coasters used to be, very experimental and apparently very fun!
Too bad many of these classics can only be seen in those photos.

That last pic is very cool seems to be so much fun to ride a old rollercoaster
BTW Intense coathanger action in the picture as well

Cool photos. Rudy Guliani is such an @$$ for tearing it down. The Thunderbolt was still stable.

There's something creepy about looking at old abandoned coasters because when they are full of patrons they are full of life and they seem to have a soul. Then when there are no riders there is no life. It's sad.

Wow... very nice Thunderbolt pics! I actually have one I took from like 1993ish. I wish I took more than just one pic.. I especially love the snow pics. I will post mine when I get the power cord to my eternal. It should be in this week.
