Old(er) coaster photos

Tuesday, July 30, 2002 5:29 AM
I love seeing photos of coasters from years ago, especially if the coasters have been altered in some way in the last several years. For instance, pics SFoG's Mindbender before it was painted green, or SFA's Wild One before it was reprofiled, are quite hard to come by. I'm primarily looking for pics of Hershey's Sooperdooperlooper when it had its orange paintjob (I haven't seen a single one on the web), but I figured this would be a good thread for anyone to post any old photos of coasters that have since been altered...

this is a nice old pic of revolution in Blackpool before sponsorship and repaint, with all the fulltime staff using it as a climbing wall...

If you go here you can see lots of pictures from parks a long time ago.

I have some pictures of Wild One before the 1999 reprofiling, in fact here's an on-ride before and after I did:

PS, was SDL's orange color scheme before or after it was painted white?

www.Coastergallery.com has Z-Force at SFOG, a very old brown Mindbender at SFOG, and Avalanche Run at CP. Those you don't see too often.

Where was it recently I saw the pic of MGA's Turn of the Century (pre-Demon)? VERY rare. I'll look for it and pass on the link.

And there's a wonderful pic of SFGAm's TotC on (I believe) Arrow Guy's site:
