And yes I would love for more people to share their cards here in this thread. The more the merrier!


I'm glad you enjoyed it. To be honest, I had forgotten about several of the older ones I have until I found this post and dusted off my own collection. I've been spending some time scanning since... ;)

Here's another I had never heard of:

didn't "safety coaster" imply the use of upstop wheels? seems like this is too early for that.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Thanks to everyone who has contributed! I wish my parents had kept some old coaster post cards. Oh well....I guess 50 years from now I'll be contributing some that have X and the Voyage on them :lolr:

Hmm .. what would OUR postcards look like... ?

I think it would be great for us to post our own postcards, real or imagined! How personal, and historical, that would be. I hope someone is interested!

Well, I just dug through my box of Theme Park Goodies and found a post card of the Haunted Mansion I just bought recently at an Antique store here in town.
Its really cool to see the bright colors of the Mansion, and size of the trees that surround it! Anywho, Enjoy!

Here's a great postcard I got when I went to CNE in Toronto several years ago. Both coasters are gone now. I'm glad I got to ride the Flyer, although it was not real big on thrills it had a great old feel.

Here's an odd one. Wish I could have ridden it when it was in the US (or when I was in the UK). Was this thing scrapped? Or is it still sitting at Flamingoland SBNO?

If by "built" they mean "shipped to the US and re-assembled", then yeah, I guess...

Flamingoland had the ride until the end the 2005 season when it got replaced by the Vekoma SLC which sits on the site that Wiener Looping/Bullt used to have. The park isn't the same without it and Drier Looping/Magnum Force.

As for the ride, I've not heard much about it since it left the park. Would be nice to hear what's going on with it, or whether it still exists.

Some absolutely fantastic contributions today guys. Thanks!

^^ I would've loved to have ridden Wiener Looping. It's always fascinated me.

^^^ Shane (or anyone)...can you verify what the Schwarzkopf looping coaster is in the background of the CNE postcard? It looks a bit like Doppel-Looping from the catalog you shared with us.

^^^^ Great view of the Haunted Mansion Ryan! :mickey:
