New Zealand's forgotten woodie from 1940 - video clips here

Sunday, May 15, 2005 1:33 AM
I was going through some of my old video clip files that I had saved a few years ago but even more amazed that I saved the web address of this particular site.

Anyone that enjoys rare defunct coaster video clips out there may appreciate this site that shows the Cyclone coaster that was at the New Zealand Exhibition in 1939-40.

Clips 1, 2 & 5 are especially worth seeing.

You're almost old enough, Rob ;)

Swampfoxer - thanks for the link! I'd seen those a few years back...was nice to revisit.

That's pretty damn cool. Seeing all those people just hopping around on that structure pre-safety regulations is crazy.

Looks like a great ride. In fact, it looks suspiciously like 80% of my RCT woodies.
