Mystery Coaster Construction in New York

Tuesday, May 7, 2002 11:16 AM

Ok, here's what I saw:

-Two vertical loops(look just like the two consecutive loops on Laser at Dorney Park)

-Loops were white with a purplish track

-was near Yonkers and Hudson Valley Region

-Not to far from Cross County Mall

-In front of some grand stand as seem at horse tracks

-Loops were only part of coaster standing though some more track and structure could be seen lying down

Anyone know what coaster this is and what it is/was for?

Probably a portable carnie coaster.

It is the Westchester County Fair. The coaster is similar to the Lazer at Dorney Park except with OTR's. Sadly, this is the last year of its operation there because yonkers raceway is getting slot machines. My dad works at the police station right across from the fair, so this will be the last year I can get a free pass for all the rides. :(

My guess is that it is Conklin setting up for the Westchester Fair. They bring their Schwarzkopf Doppel Looping, the Moser Freefall and I believe a couple of indepedents like the CVS Top Scan play that spot, too. If you live in the area- go! You get to ride on of the best flat rides in the country and (I believe) the Doppel Looper is the largest traveling coaster in the US (if not it is right up there).

Its the double loop at westchester county fair. And to my memory it has lap bars and is an exact clone of Laser.

Are you saying this is the last year for the fair? No

OMG...I used to live right near there (North Bronx) I remember my friends and I used to go there everyday after school....ahh the memories. They do have some awesome flats and the bomb diggy corn dogs. Not to mention the freak shows. I hope this is not the last year of operation. If I remember correctly it lasts 1 month.
