Zingo comes down at Bell's under tight deadline

Posted Friday, May 11, 2007 10:39 AM | Contributed by Jeff

It began with a stick drawing in the dirt. Then Bob Bell took his father's idea and an engineer's design and built the Zingo roller coaster with his own two hands. That was 1968. Now, almost 40 years later, he's helping to tear it down.

Man, I hope it isn't all rough when it's rebuilt.

It really was a supurbly smooth ride, for all its thirty year run in the old location. Very few parks put as much attention into their wooden coasters as Bell's did to Zingo.

I like the quote about Earth, Wind, and Fire. The Bells should request their presence for the grand re-opening of Zingo.
