So I was going through some old photo albums, came across these and decided to post them.
The first set is from a trip to Cedar Point in July of 1977. In 1977 Cedar Point had 5 rollercoasters - the Blue Streak, the Wildcat, the Jumbo Jet, Cedar Creek Mine Ride and the Corkscrew.
The second set is a trip to Geauga Lake in August 1977 - opening season of the Double Loop!
FYI, all pics were taken with an original 1966 Kodak Instamatic 104 camera. It has been 30+ years, so the color has faded.
Loading the group into Mary's Station Wagon and driving from Youngstown, Ohio to Cedar Point.
The CP Train
Part of the group on the train
The Giant Wheel and the train
The old log flume with the Blue Streak in the background. Raptor is there now.
This is what happened when we asked someone to take a pic of the group. That's me in top row on the left in the blue tank top without a head
Into every Cedar Point day, a little rain must fall (Blue Streak in the distance)
Going up the second chain lift on the Mine Ride. Look at all those trees!! And not another coaster in sight! Back then the only ways to get to Frontier Town were the Frontier Trail, the train or the second sky ride that used to run from right about where Iron Dragon is to the restrooms next to the Mine Ride. The walk to Gemini didn't exist! It was all trees.
Getting drenched on the old Frontier Town water ride that had a double down! Maverick stands there today.
Posing in the stockade on the Frontier Trail (I'm in the middle) - I had a head and hair in this pic!! Wearing a pair of Indian Leather Toe sandles
Teresa and Carol driving the cars! Derby Downs in the background.
Mary's first ride on a rollercoaster - the Blue Streak. She was thrilled!!
The JUMBO JET!!! Used to be near the entrance
Going up the circular lift on the JUMBO JET (I'm in the back seat - Jeff's in the front looking back)
Oh, by the way - the Gemini was under construction!
Great vintage photos, man. My father has some at his house of the family going to Cedar Point in 1975, before I was born. They also include the old slide that used to be there. I used to love that one.
It's so cool to look at the historical stuff, I remember looking at the photos in the hallways of Hotel Breakers. There was one photo that really freaked us, it was early 1900's and it looked like a wave swinger except it was in the water on the beach.
