Anyone recall Skyline Amusement Park near Tulsa?

I found a link today on a defunct amusement park in Jenks, OK (south of Tulsa) called Skyline Amusement Park. Anyone heard of this place?

They had a very large wooden coaster, laying claim to being the "world's longest" at one time (1950's-60's).

The park or coaster is not listed on rcdb or incoasterpaedia.com.

Seems like this one got away from the coaster historians like myself, and several other notable historians that I have contacted have never heard of this place either.

Anyway, take a look. Some really cool shots of the coaster. Looked to be partially built in a ravine. Also had classic NAD trains.

Here is the incoasterpedia listing. It's listed as Skyline Funspot Park. Not much info.

Thanks for the additional links. I had already found the first one through Google. Not sure how I overlooked the incoasterpaedia listing.
