Legendary Wooden Coasters

What are legendary wooden roller coasters, that you would like to see rebuilt at another park. The coasters have to past coasters that no longer exist.

I actually don't personally care, but someone's going to say CBC. Is this really different from "favorite defunct wood coaster"? *** Edited 12/3/2004 3:28:46 AM UTC by ApolloAndy***

I want a ride that requires a nurse at the exit. I want a ride that was probably rougher than Son of Beast on it's worst of days. I want a ride that every enthusiast in the world would be b****ing about if it was still around today. *** Edited 12/3/2004 4:01:49 AM UTC by Kick The Sky***

Everyone wants Crystal Beach Cyclone Look at SOB's layout

Even though SoB isn't quck fire like CBC would be. You all hate it and would be the first to B*** when you got it.

Personally I think Cyclone Racers would be great at some big park.

I'll go with the Crystal Beach Cyclone, especially after seeing the on-ride animation, that sucker lookes sweet, and Im sure that the animation didn't do it all the justice it deserves.

Puritas Springs Cyclone, but it would be difficult to find the matching terrain.

Woodcliffe Pleasure Park Blue Streak. Kennywood has the terrain for this ;)

Rye Playland's Aero Coaster...'nuff said.

Long Beach Cyclone Racer.

That picture of the construction workers on Blue Streak is hilarious. I wish I could have lived back then.

Bringing back any Fred Church and/or Frank Prior coaster is fine by me :)

American Eagle, Six Flags Great America

Make it 50 feet higher, take off all the breaks.

I think the Dipper coaster at Kennywood that was removed to make room for the Raging Rapids. I never got the chance to ride it. Removed in '84 Born in '86. Thanks

Revere Beach Cyclone or any of the Prior & Church clones of this ride. Secondly, the Coney Island Tornado, and third, the Revere Beach Lightning.

The Thriller: Euclid Beach.
Cyclone: Puritas Springs. right on, Moosh! The pics i've seen of that coaster looked great. I've walked/hiked back there in the Metro's. There's some interesting things back there, footers, old boards/track... hard to imagine a coaster was once there.

But *if* you were to build Rye's Airplane....wouldn't you really need either the original P&C trains, or maybe you could "make do" with the M-Flyers....;)

If that hint was any heavier, I'd have risked breaking a toe when it dropped to the floor...;)

Im guessing it's Thunderbolt http://history.amusement-parks.com/cithunderbolt.htm they are planing on building and not Aeroplane as I heard mentions of O&B for Beech Bend.

Hope they announce it soon.

I would have to say the Wildcat at Idora Park. Unfortunately I only learned about this park a couple of years ago and was only able to experience the coaster via video.

The West View Park Dips (in Pittsburgh).

The best coaster of all time!

Ooooh...West View Dips. I forgot about that one ;)
