Boblo Island Question

Tuesday, July 24, 2001 2:52 PM
In the track record section there is a coaster called the Silver Streak at Boblo Island. It says that it was a steel out and back debuting in the early 70s. I believe that that coaster was actually called the Sky Streak.

Also I was wondering why Boblo's other two coasters, Nightmare and Screamer are not in the database. I know that all three coasters have re-located to other locations, but I was wondering why only one (Sky/Silver Streak) was in the track record database.

I have ridden both the Nightmare and Myan Mindbender (same ride different locations), but I found these rides to be as different as two different cloned rides in different locations might be. There was a different atmosphere at each of the parks, and naturally the theming (or lack thereof) was different at each park.

Does this count as riding two different coasters, or the same coaster? I know it is a technicality, but I would count it as two different coasters because of the different parks, different theming, different atmosphere etc.

All of Boblo's coasters now exist at other parks. The Screamer is at the PNE in Vancouver as Corkscrew, The Nightmare is at SFAW as Mayan Mindbender, and the Sky Streak is somewhere in Mexico, all of which are in the database currently.
