COASTERnet has just added a major new site section, the defunct wooden coaster index. The new sub-section is an addition to the popular defunct index which focused on America's steel coasters. The new wooden coaster section is just as unique and covers all types of wooden rides in North America and currently lists nearly thirty of the biggest and best of the country's lost wooden rides.

Very impressive! If it's hard to get info on currently standing coasters, I can't imagine what a task it was to recover all that information on the defunct ones!

The internet needs more sites like this, focusing on lost coasters. Very well done!
