Going off of the Zamperla at Jenkinsons Boardwalk....that looks the same and has the same name....(you can see half the name in the last pic)

-Bag of Crap to whoever solves the mystery maybe?????

Found it!

Tornado at Dowdy's Amusement Park in Nag's Head, NC. Linkasaurus.

Well, that was a pretty good use of 15 minutes.

Dowdy's it is. I never saw this thing operate, but it has been sitting there – alone and abandoned – for quite some time. Whatever the case, it has to take the honor of being the most furthest-located-out-in-the-Atlantic-Ocean-SBNO steel coaster EVER.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

^^The Tornado is gone as of January 2011. I had a few rides on it back in the day. Pretty sweet for a powered coaster.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I think it's time to give this thread a bump. You can see the list of articles on some of the historic rides on the first post of this thread: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=527957#p527957

I love this thread! There is so much great content in it. I was brought back to my childhood with Cascade Park since I grew up near there. I was last there in the late 70s but unfortunately did not ride Comet. After going through some old pictures I have not been able to find anything to share. Apparently my parents didn't take pictures at or of amusement parks.

After looking through more photos, we found out that my wife went to Elitch Gardens around 1977-1978 when she lived in Colorado for a year. Here is a shot she took apparently from a Ferris Wheel and you can see Mr. Twister in the background.

Everybody must watch this commercial. It's the best Six Flags commercial ever. Definitely one of the trippiest SF commercials I've ever seen. Anyone have a Mindbender commercial to compare?
