Anybody remember the old Boblo Island coasters?

I'm new to the board! It has only been 2 days and I'm learning the ropes here! I could not find any of the old Boblo Island coasters on the track record. I submited the little information I know to the site. I was only there once in 1990-1992 range. I know the park closed in 1993!

The only info I could submit to the site was for the three coasters I remember from my one visit!

They had this weird steel out and back called the Skystreak! They had an indoor steel called the Nightmare (I'm quite sure this is an indoor at Astroworld now)! They had a corkscrew (I believe Vekoma not Arrow) called the Screamer. I know nothing else about these coasters. Nightmare and Skystreak were fun though!

If anybody has additional information, could you please update the track record section so we can get those in there with more information then I could give?

Give me wood or give me B&M! :-)

The Vekoma Corkscrew coaster is now at the PNE/Playland in Vancouver,BC.

Meet me at the PNE in 2003. Happy 45th birthday,Coaster!

The coaster database only shows the current locations of moved coasters. Nightmare is now the Mayan Mindbender at Astroworld, the Screamer is now at the PNE, as previously posted. The Sky Streak (very neat ride indeed) is now El Cascabel at Selva Magica, Mexico
