This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at the now closed Lincoln Park, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion.
Below are some links to past announcements and updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!
A few photos from my last vist to Lincoln Park a few weeks ago. There is a fence along the front side of the park. But the other sides dont have a fence or anything. I also saw a few people going on a walk with a dog in the parking lot next to the coaster.. So I just went in real quick to take a few photos of the coaster.
One of the hills on the ride.
From inside the station.
This is how high the lifthill is... Now... (the rest fell over in the winter... I have a few photos from on top of the lifthill from last fall.. I could dig out )
And one last photo.. That shows where the rest of the lifthill went...
Wow The Comet was the very first coaster I ever rode. My family went several times a year to Lincoln Park(along with Canobie and Riverside) when I was a kid. It makes me sad sad to see what has become of the place

You'd think as someone who loves old coasters, I'd hate seeing photos of defunct or arguably worse decrpid SBNO old coasters, but I really love studying them. When in operation they have a beautiful atmospheric character, and when standing derelict, sagged and perhaps in places collapsed, they have a whole different, but equally enchanting mysterious character. I love browsing derelict photos of Chippewa Lake and Idora etc, every so often..
I'd love for someone at Puritas Springs to climb down into the ravine and take photos of the Cyclone track supposedly still sitting in place at the bottom, of what was a 90' drop. I doubt I'll see that though.

yes! me, too. i love sbno rides and closed parks. i got to visit idora before everything got bulldozed and chippewa lake, too. it's so creepy; like you can feel the energy of all the memories and fun... er something.
awesome. i've always thought the comet looked like a great figure-8 twister style coaster, ala coney island cyclone, (especially with the turn over the first drop heading back to the station). has anyone ever seen a video of it anywhere? if so, please post the link.
I've not seen video footage, but Bob Hooley did have a feature page or two on his site about it, with operational onride photos. Atleast I think he did, it's a while since I've visited his site. There were quite a few defunct coasters on there, and it could've been one of many..
