But I don't thint there were banked turns like that on Big Dipper either.
But maybe it COULD have been misfiled into a CP folder, due to the name? Hey, it's a GUESS... ;)

I know Skyliner very well. It looks exactly like the Skyliner to me. This view of the ride can be seen as you exit the ride, behind the station. *** Edited 2/19/2007 2:32:39 AM UTC by dexter***
just shows the train and you can see the inner-turn cables as well. *** Edited 2/19/2007 2:43:43 AM UTC by P18***
And I agree, "Blue Streak" looks superimposed in the pic.
That "Blue Streak" was superimposed on that image, you can tell if you look closely.
I agree. I thought the coloring looked a little odd. Clearly a fake. Zoom in and look closely, you will see. *** Edited 2/19/2007 3:32:51 AM UTC by xtreme2134***
Not sure why I didn't think to look earlier, but I just got the new book, "Herbert Schmeck: The Forgotten Legacy." It's the second book in the designer series by ACE. Anyway, the Wild One with was originaly Giant Coaster at Paragon Park was designed by Herbery Schmeck. You see a very similar picture in this scan. And even though they used 4 car trains on Wild One, they only used 3 car trains on Giant Coaster. Also, if you notice the paint job on the side, all you need to do is change the red on top and you have the same blue white blue on the picture from the 64 brochure.
And in another picture, I can't scan without ruining the binding of the book, you can see there are some houses that would be visibal from the angle of the picture in the 64 brochure.
The biggest difference I see still is the lighting. There are bulb lights draped from the structure in the 64 Brochure pic and in the Giant Coaster Pic there is more a lamp post type light. I would say something like is a minor difference, seeing as how it opened in 1917 and was at the park until 1985, it likely went through a couple different lighting changes as technology developed.
