  1. It's a Zamperla Shocker. The ride motion is essentially that of a Tango but the riders are seated. Looks like its built on a Power Surge base.
  2. 3 months later, here are a few more. Libertyland's Carousel was one of the oldest in the nation if I recall. Photo taken in 1990. Marineland's Dragon Mountain entrance looked a little less covered in foliage when this shot was taken in 1985. LeSourdsville Lake re-opened in 2002 for one year only. Thankfully I got to ride the Screechin' Eagle that summer. Awesome ride that deserves to be saved. Another LeSourdsville shot, this one of the Serpent coaster from across the "lake". The Zipper can also be seen at the far right. These happy coyotes were found at th
  3. Glad some folks seemed to like the pics and thanks for the compliments. Here are some more completely random shots. I have a boatload of these. Just never have the time to scan them all in.

Mean Streak in its opening year (1991). Kings Island's Flight Commander. Photo taken in 1992. I actually liked this ride. Skylab (Huss Giant Enterprise) at Kings Island. King Cobra can
  5. Hi... my name is Ray P. I have been posting on other message boards for about 10 years now, but for some reason, the fun just isn't there anymore. It seems like the world of online coastering has become one of constant bickering, trolling, and the oh-so-annoying "Site Wars" where people aren't even allowed to mention certain sites by name. I was always under the impression that this hobby was about enjoying amusement parks and just having fun.
