Thanks BZ, I love stuff like this! I went searching other parks and found Lakewood Park at 07009. I was looking for the Yankee Canonball which RCDB has listed as being at Lakewood from 1930 to 1935 but the only thing I could make out was the the Carousel pavilion which is still there today. 07495 has Quassy Amusement park but they've never had a major coaster there.

Thanks for sharing! Oh, and the Savin Rock one has their Virginia Reel a little to the northeast of the Thunderbolt and I'm guessing the one straight north is the Roller Boller coaster, but I really don't know for sure.

Tom,

I also searched for the Yankee Canonball, but was unable to find it. As I researched it's lifetime in Waterbury, I found that it actually closed in 1933. Unfortunately, I discovered that some time ago and forgot where I read it.
