Did anyone else happen to notice something "missing" from the thread title (and presumably, missing from Palisades itself)...
ME! (remember)... ;)
I can really date myself by asking anyone here if they remember "Adventures Inn" Amusement Park that was in College Point Queens??
I used to go to that place so often when I was a kid. They had "Jumbo Jets" there and I remember more than once being the only one riding it while my Dad and brother watched me. I know that is where my love for coasters began! :)
I also remember they had actual horses there that you could ride around (by yourself) in this circle 4x for like 5 tickets. I would get on and gallop the poor horse around 4x...it was a blast! I LOVED it!! I believe that is where my love for horses began :)
When the park itself closed (in the mid-late 70's?) I remember most of the rides stayed up for years. I remember driving on the expressway and how sad the skeleton of the haunted house looked and how I longed to ride Jumbo Jets again.
Adventures Inn was forced to closed because the neighbors complained about the noise. Keeping in mind it was RIGHT across the street from a private air field, RIGHT next to the Van Wyck Expressway (or was it the BQE?) RIGHT on a direct flight pattern for LGA, not to mention it was in Queens for goodness sakes, not exactly the quietest place on earth.
