The one thing I would like to see most in this topic, is to see GCI re-build the Harry Traver's twister triplets with todays modern safety systems and better car articulation. But I don't know how much better you can get from a ball and socket. I wanna ride the Crystal Beach Cyclone, the Revere Beach Cyclone, and the Lightning at Revere Beach. Please correct me if I have any of these wrong. Except I know that the Lightning and CBC are right, but I'm not sure about the RBC. They would be a huge success and we would all get to re-live the magic of Harry Traver.
Georgia Cyclone-The Most A Coaster Can BEEEEEEEE.

IAD and NAD and PTC woodies, John Millers, Prior and Church, Harry Traver, the list goes on. For a woodie-freak like me, who also has a VERY STRONG interest in amusement park history, it's very sad to know about all the defunct coasters, etc. I've seen but not ridden WindJammer (RIP), Thunderbolt at Coney (RIPx2), and Drachen Fire. My biggest hope is that the CoasterWorks! ride that is currently SBNO will be bought and moved to another park, and quickly. No running and no maintenance means a short life-span for a SBNO woodie. If it should happen that I travel in time and get one ride on a defunct coaster, I will select the CB Cyclone... DDFire, you posted at the same time as me, but I'd like to give props to the other rides you mentioned, you sound like "my kind of enthusiast"! Nurses at unloading stations for every woodie!!!
