WOW another great addition Shane! I love seeing these especially rare cards (notice how the back says Six Flags Over Mid-America). My memory may be incorrect, but I think it was located where BTR is now.
I was able to ride this awesome Schwarzkopf coaster both at SFOMA in 1982 and again when it was moved to SFAW where a tunnel was added to the first drop and it was renamed Viper. I found it still running great on SFAW's closing weekend 3 years ago, and it's too bad it got trashed. It would've made a great addition to any park. According to RCDB, there are only 5 Looping Stars left operating today.
Yes the JetScream was originally located where Batman stands today. I know I have a "Viper" postcard somewhere, but until I can find it, here is my daily contribution.
This ride is the "cat's meow" and when it first opened they actually ran 5 trains on the ride!!!! At times one train would actually thread the loop while the other circled the loop. It was the coolest thing to see.

Here's another post card of "The Great American Revolution" You can clearly see three trains operating out on the ride, there is probablly one in the station and one in the holding brakes. Now that the way to run a ride!
3 trains, no head rests, no over the shoulder restraints...this is classic Anton!
Magic Mountains's Revolution it'll knock your socks flat off!
As a postcard collector myself, I'm really enjoying this thread. If Mark doesn't mind another contributor, I'll share a few of mine. Some I've bought on my own travels, some I've inherited from other coaster enthusiasts, and some I've bought from post card sellers. I'll start with one of my faves.
WOW...What an amazing contribution restoca! I noticed the postcard is post dated 1932 also! Thanks for sharing with us this awesome view of Airplane. I'm looking forward to seeing more from your collection.
And yes I would love for more people to share their cards here in this thread. The more the merrier!
