^ The new restraints are completely amazing. The vest doesn't lock up, so it acts more like a seat belt. It gives a very good feeling of freedom. Also, you couldn't hit your head on the bars even if you tried, or well I haven't noticed anyone trying and I'd suspect no one here would try either. The new restraints make all the difference.

Boomerangs just don't seem fun to me (along with most Vekomas) but those trains look nice. Good trains can make all the difference.


Boomerangs didn't seem fun to me either, until I rode this one. Intense and smooth. =)

Defunct Coaster Potpourri

I was just perusing The Closet's many wonders and thought it was time to share a few tasty nuggets of defunct coaster goodness. So here, in absolutely no particular order, is yet another a grab bag of classic rides from the past. Enjoy! =)

No, it's just a strange optical illusion.

OMG!!! those PTC trains are beautiful. Gotta love that 1940's to 1950's streamline look. That Hunt's Pier little train was sweet. Great pics. Thanks. Keep them coming.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm not trying to start any rumors but, isn't there some dude out there that has been trying to raise funds to build a replica of the Long Beach Cyclone? I thought I had heard that somewhere. :?r
