I was wondering what coasters Rocky Point had? I went there when i was young and remember seeing some coasters by dont remember what kind or the names. All I remember is they had some coasters, ferris wheel, carousel. What other flat rides did they have?

If you've been here please respond!

thanks,

Mike

One coaster they had was a corkscrew coaster (Loop Corkscrew?) Anyway, it now resides in Seattle as Wild Thing at Enchanted Village.

Rocky Point was also home to a Schwarzkopf Wildcat called the Cyclone.  RCDB says the ride was located from Riverside Park (SFNE).

well its not at SFNE now. They did not have a wood coaster when I went there this was from 1991 to 1995 just a corkscrew, a wildcat coaster called Cyclone, a Haunted house with 2 floors [loooong ride] a Freefall tower, and a awsome log flume. lots more also.

I think that the wood coaster has been gone for decades.  I know that the park was home to the first of PTC's Flying Turns rides, which was the predecessor to today's bobsled rides.

The park was open from 1847-1995.  After the rides were auctioned off in 1996, the park operated one more season as Rocky Point Family Fair with a few of the park's ride operating and a carnival was brought in too.    Rides the park had when it closed in 1995 includes Musik Express, Enterprise, Sky Diver, Roto Jets, Tilt-A-Whirl, Yo-yo, Scrambler, Rock N' Roll, Apollo, Spider, Ferris Wheel, Scooters (bumper cars), Skyliner (ski lift type ride), Flume, House Of Horrors, Rocky Point Express (train), Carousel, Corkscrew (Wild Thing in Washington's Enchanted Village), Cyclone, Freefall (was The Edge at Six Flags Great America before it was at Rocky Point and is now Mr. Hyde's Nasty Fall at Six Flags World Of Adventures).  I don't think i'm forgetting any, hmmm...         Before 1938, roller coasters they had included The Flying Turns, Round The Tree Tops wooden coaster, Wildcat 1926-1938.  They also had another coaster called the Wildcat from 1960's to mid 1970's.  I heard that the Flume went to Asia and the Cyclone coaster went to eastern Canada (?)

yes it did. This is kinda sad, well if I go to SFWOA I can ride some of Rocky Points past. The haunted house still stands alone today with some other houses and rides arounds it.
