Defunct/removed/SBNO coasters ridden?

Friday, September 7, 2001 10:42 AM
I've ridden Steel Phantom, King Kobra at PKD.  I saw, but did not get to ride DF, WindJammer, and T-Bolt at Coney before they were demolished.  Remembering "past" coasters seems like a good way for enthusiaists to try and prevent future demolitions...

Well, I have ridden a few "removed" / "Defunct" coasters...

Glissade (Busch Gardens: The Old Country... now BGW - 1977?)
A Zyklon (or Galaxy or Wildcat) (BG:OC - 1977)
"Flying Dutchman" (Zyklon or Galaxy - Dorney - 1980)
A Jumbo Jet (Ocean City MD - 1980)
An old version wild mouse (Ocean City MD - 1980)
"Little Dipper" kiddie wooden coaster (Williasmgrove: 1970)
Steel Phantom (Kennywood - 2000)

The only one that I regret that is no longer around is the kiddie coaster at Williamsgrove. You don't see many wooden kiddie coasters anymore (a steel on is now in its place)

The two removed rides I've ridden were at the same park and in fact on the same plot of land. You guessed it: Windjammer and Wacky Soap Box Derby Racers.

Been on Drachen Fire many times and always loved it.  Always made a point to ride Viper at S.F. Great Adventure when I would stop by the park for a few hours.

There are 3 out of the 177 coasters I have ridden that are defunct.

My very first coaster = Corkscrew at KBF (rode it in 1985).

My 6th rollercoaster = Zambezi Zinger at WoF (rode it from 1992-1997).

and my 100th coaster = Steel Phantom (rode it last year).

SBNO? I don't know the status of all of them one but I know that the Texas Tornado was in this category this year.

I;ve ridden the tobaggan at trimpers rides in ocean city. it's not listed as SBNO but everywhere I vists says it's SBNO or unkown. and it wasent running when I was up there last  year. I can't belive I am only one of 8 people here who has ridden it! I mean for such a small ride it wasent too bad. It was something of a compact kiddie coaster.

Mr. Twister and the Wildcat at the old Elitch Gardens.  Still my two favorite woodies to this day.

Well there was this little coaster (a Galaxi?) @ Santa's Village outside of Chicago that was removed for Typhoon. But that's about the only one I can think of.

I didn't realize Viper @ SFGAdv went SBNO.  Sad...I liked that ride, had a unique upside-down dive maneuver that was kinda funky if a little rough...Arrow Guy, I'm kind of jealous you got to ride The Bat.  And Mustang, Mr. Twister.  Two great rides!  I've also ridden SFoG's Viper, but not like I'll ride it on the 16th...We're having a BLOW-OUT!
