A look back at Whalom Park - Photo TR

Postby Canobie Fan » Fri Jul 21, 2006 6:09 pm

Ok so MA had a park up until 2000 called Whalom Park.. Yeah
The place wasnt very big and didnt have much at it but it was still a nice place to spend a few hours... Even if Robb says it was ghetto.. ::roll::
Flyer Comet was a really good coaster and had one of the best tunnels I have ever been in. And the park also had some kickass old school flatrides... A bouncer, Rock N Roll (looper), Flying Scooters, a Fly-O-Plane, Whip, and a few other rides... well yeah.. A few says ago Robb had IM'd me and someone Whalom came up and I said I could do a "whats left" TR.. So here it is...

Disclaimer ALL photos from inside the park were OK'D by the park sitter.(Yes even the ones from on Flyer Comet..) I did not jump any fences or break ANY rules... So I dont need any posts saying "You broke'd t9h lawz" as I didnt.
I have been up to Whalom many times in the last few years to see whats been going on. I have been let inside the park a good 6 times now... And the park is Police'd so if you try and just go in.. You will get caught...
Anyways... On to the photos.

Cool pictures, closed parks that still have rides left in them (and everything else like the games and other buildings) seem sort of spooky to me.

Yeah.. When you walk down the midway alone its a bit creepy. Then you see like a stray cat jump out of a bush.. and its like "Oh crap!"

Not all of Whaloms rides were lost. A few made new homes over the last few years. The tilt-a-whirl and scrambler both ended up at Edaville Railroad in MA.. As did the parks tumblebug.. But it hasnt been set up yet.

I love pickles. No more comments neccesary.

How did the Flyer Comet look? Looks pretty good from the pics, but do you think it is salvageable, if anyone wanted it, or they wanted to reopen it?

The coaster is in greatshape... All it needs is about 5 feet of track at the base of ohe lifthill.
So yeah.. If someone wanted to save it they could.. The thing is its not a coaster someone would save. It was a great ride and all. And real fun.. But its not something a park could buy and 'sell' it as a new ride.... Unless it was some really small park.

I've heard the developer who wanted to put condos on whalom parks property could get locked up for years. So I think it will become that native american place and I'll get to ride the Flyer Comet.
