  1. For anyone here interested in Ghost Trains, dark rides and their history... there's a great NEW book all about them. More details here at the Roller Coaster Media Library. http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/the-ghost-train/ Simon B.
  2. Hello TPR. Just a quick "Random" post to announce that my Roller Coaster Media Library is BACK on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/rollercoastermedialibrary/ To view all those amusement park and roller coaster-related Books, Magazines, DVDs and VHSs that you never knew existed, visit the RCML directly at: RollerCoasterMediaLibrary.com and/or visit the RCML in person the next time you're in sunny Blackpool, England!

  3. I received this book a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed the read. I have since added it to the Roller Coaster Media Library website. Listing / more details here: http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/libertyland/ The RCML is also back on Facebook, which also features the new Libertyland book. https://www.facebook.com/Roller-Coaster-Media-Library-133528053957923/ Simon
  4. Thank you for the heads up on this. I just purchased a copy and will add it to my library in due course. Keep a lookout for it appearing on RollerCoasterMediaLibrary.com Simon
  5. I have been collecting amusement park/roller coaster-related books, magazines, VHSs and DVDs for about 18 years. My current collection consists of: 704 books. 274 DVDs. 115 VHSs. 528 enthusiast magazines. I would like to be kept up-to-date with any titles I am missing (minus Disney and Coney Island titles, of which there are far too many). My collection may be viewed at RollerCoasterMediaLibrary.com
  6. If anyone has this DVD or knows where I might purchase an original copy, I would be MOST INTERESTED in acquiring it for my RollerCoasterMediaLibrary.com collection. I will pay good money for this. Thank you, all. Simon
  7. Hi TPR Thank you for your kind replies regarding the quizzes. I notice NO-ONE has yet managed to score 100% on the DVD #1 Quiz. [smiles] Just a quick update: "DVD QUIZ 2" has just been uploaded. Have fun and be sure to enter your scores on the leaderboard at the end of the quiz. Simon http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/
  8. Hello TPR. It has been a VERY long time coming. I have added a new "DVD QUIZ" to the RCML pages. Give it a go, and be sure to enter your terrific score into the leaderboard. I will add a few more new quizzes over the next few weeks... http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/quiz/ Simon
  9. Hi TPR members. Andy Shine's latest quiz concerns what you see and hear in the 1977 movie "RollerCoaster" starring George Segal, Timothy Bottoms, etc. There are 25 teasers for you try. See how you do, and remember to add your name to the leaderboard at the end... HARRY! http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/quiz/ S.A.S Baynham
  10. Hi Theme Park Review. Andy Shine's latest quiz tests how well you can identify roller coasters by sight alone. See how well you score, and remember to enter your names/scores on the leaderboard at the end. Also, the 1300+ roller coaster-related books, DVDs, VHSs and magazines catalogued on the RCML site are now listed in alphabetical order (ish). It was a long time coming, but I think the site is better for it. rollercoastermedialibrary.com PICTURES QUIZ = http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/quiz/ Thank you for playing. Simon A.S. Baynham
  11. Hi TPR. Just to let you know that all 24 quizzes have been uploaded and are now ready to play. All quiz leader boards have been re-set for 2014 and a few minor modifications made. So, give the quizzes another go and enter your scores. You may play and enter your name/scores as many times as you like in the quest for 100% perfection! MAIN SITE: http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/ QUIZ PAGE: http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/quiz/ Thank you TPR
  12. Hi TPR [#FLUFF] Thank you for "Roller Coasters In The Raw! #8" that arrived today. I enjoyed watching these programmes very much and will do so again later. Thank you too for enclosing the Corkscrew Citrus "Insane Coaster Wars" extra -- it was absolutely DELICIOUS! Does anyone here know if Insane Coaster Wars will be released on DVD anytime soon? S.A.S. Baynham Roller Coaster Media Library.com
  13. Hi TPR. I just bought/pre-ordered my RCitR!8. [CHECKING POST BOX] Simon A.S. Baynham
  14. Looking through the titles in the RCML, and in particular the book: "HARRY TRAVER - LEGENDS OF TERROR." The above image doesn't appear to show any coaster at the Century of Progress (the pic' doesn't typify a Traver-built Cyclone). Furthermore, looking at articles in early NAPHA News and ACE magazines, it doesn't appear to be the TailSpin coaster at Dandilion Park either. [FLUMMOXED SO FAR] Simon A.S. Baynham rollercoastermedialibrary.com
  15. Hi TPR. More quizzes have been added: Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Famous Names, Parks' History, Thorpe Park, Spin Rides, Dark Rides... and a PRIZE is offered to the top scorer of the "100 SECONDS FRENZY QUIZ." Visit the RCML facebook page for more details and BAG that prize. Have fun and score highly! http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/ S.A.S. Baynham
  16. Hi TPR. Thank you for playing the quizzes and for your feedback. I attach an image showing the current (as of 1 hour ago) leader boards for each quiz. S.A.S. Baynham RCML Quiz Leader boards
  17. Thank you for playing. Did you submit your score/name at the end into the leader board? The incorrect/correct answers remain hidden as I wanted to encourage folks to play again in an attempt to increase their scores. More quizzes will be uploaded soon. Simon A.S. Baynham
  18. Hi TPR. It's been a long time coming. 8 out of 24 new quizzes have been uploaded for you to try, with the remaining quizzes coming soon. A new feature allows players to enter their names/scores onto the scoreboard, and the quizzes are now limited to set times (so no Googling!) Have fun, and see if you can bag a GREAT score! http://rollercoastermedialibrary.com/ (Select "QUIZ PAGE") Simon A.S. Baynham
  19. Robb, you tease! Please, tell us a bit more about it! Oh, and put me down for a copy [WAVES CA$H] Simon A.S. Baynham RollerCoasterMediaLibrary.com
  20. Hi TPR. I just wanted to ask if there's a Roller Coasters in the Raw! #8 DVD in the pipeline for the gift-giving season? Thank you. Simon Andrew Shine Baynham
  21. Hi TPR. ^You're^ the first person, as far as I know -anywhere- to have noticed/mentioned that there was no dedicated February or March Quiz, which I think speaks volumes. The website and quizzes are still there, and new quizzes will be added occasionally, but not every month. Thanks for playing and for browsing the Roller Coaster Media Library's collection of parks/coaster/rides books and DVDs, etc. that you never knew existed. Simon Andrew Shine Baynham
  22. Hi TPR ANDY SHINE'S JANUARY 2013 QUIZ is ready to play! This quiz tests your ability to match currently-operating coasters to the park in which they're located. I'm anticipating some very high --or maybe even perfect-- scoring from the more knowledgeable TPR members! http://www.rollercoastermedialibrary.com Quiz Page > January 2013 Quiz. Have fun! Simon A.S. Baynham
  23. Hi TPR ANDY SHINE'S DECEMBER 2012 QUIZ is ready to play! This quiz concerns roller coaster inversions. So, if you know all your loopy facts, you may do well here! http://www.rollercoastermedialibrary.com Quiz Page > December 2012 Quiz. Have fun! Simon A.S. Baynham
  24. Hi. I cannot provide personal recollections of Euclid Beach Park's coasters; however, there are some great books about the place that provide an insight into how they rode. There's also a series of DVDs, and DVD162 shows the coaster POVs in their entirety. All these titles are listed on RollerCoasterMediaLibrary.com (use the SEARCH function there to find more). [DVD 100] EUCLID BEACH PARK IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. [DVD 101] EUCLID BEACH PARK - GONE TOO SOON. [DVD 102] EUCLID BEACH PARK - FOOTSTEPS INTO YESTERDAY. [DVD 162] PARKS FROM THE PAST - 2. [bOOK 25] AMUSEMENT PARK BOOKS: EUCLID BEACH PARK IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. [1977] [bOOK 33] AMUSEMENT PARK BOOKS: EUCLID BEACH PARK - A SECOND LOOK. [1979] [bOOK 469] EUCLID BEACH PARK NOW: EUCLID BEACH PARK [2012] Like the original poster, I'd like to read of folks' personal experiences too. Simon
  25. Thank you for your kind words. You're the first person (I believe) to have said that. [sMILES] Simon B
