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... ----------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
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)
------------- "I wasn't always this cynical, but then I started kindergarden..."
Corkscrew, Soap Box Racers, Windjammer at KBF, Rocket Rods at Disneyland, coaster that they took out in Bugs Bunny World at SFMM I don't remember the name, Flashback at SFMM, the bobsled ride they had at SFMM and Shockwave at SFMM.
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. ----------------- All at once the ghosts come back reeling you in now.

Mr. Twister and the Wildcat at the old Elitch Gardens. Still my two favorite woodies to this day. ----------------- "Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you are a mile away and you have their shoes."
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. jeremy who has been on several coasters that have since been *moved*
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! ----------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
