Here is a video I found a while back. It has some great footage of Coney-Island way back when. Enjoy!

OMG.. the masses of people at the beach... wow. Nice footage, thanks for the link! To think then i could see a Freak Show, and eat ice cream for only 20 cents... *** Edited 9/6/2005 4:54:16 AM UTC by Keith2005***

I couldn't help but notice the coaster POV showed a track that appeared more like the 'Leap the Dips' type of track, but, it seemed way too intense for that type of track design, as opposed to the modern 'upstop' track variety.

I'm sorry but I can't think of the term off the top of my head for that kind of design (I keep thinking it's something like side-friction). Was this type of design known for any sort of intensity?
