First CP on-ride photo

Tuesday, March 5, 2002 6:39 PM

I was aproached recently by a co-worker of my wife, and she told me she had an on-ride photo of her and a friend on the mine ride. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't CP start using on-ride photo's in 1989 with the Magnum?

I don't know if that was first... I think it was. I'm 95% sure there was never a camera on Mine Ride.

I've been going there for quite some time and I've never seen nor heard of any kind on cam being on it. She never told me what the year was on the photo, But I figured she was just blowin smoke anyways

I've been riding Mine Ride for a litte more than 30 years, and I don't recall it ever having an on ride photo. The first on-ride photo I recall was on Magnum.

I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead

Me too, CP Lady. (Except for the 30 years part :) )

It was Hot Shots in 1989 on the Magnum. Mind everyone that she have experienced an outside concessionaire that may have been snapping shots on an instamatic format for postcards or some similar product for a brief period one long summer ago.
