Magnum PA Posted December 1, 2010 Share Posted December 1, 2010 (edited) The recent photo tour of the old Lincoln Park reminded me that I had these pictures on my computer from the summer before last. We gave ourselves a tour of the property (no breaking and entering - it was open). Rocky Springs Park is now a bed and breakfast. Many of the old park's buildings are in tact, including the gorgeous carousel building. Enjoy! This is the view looking up at the park and carousel house from the bank of the Conestoga River, where the original Lady Gay boat would drop guests off. A peek inside the carousel house. Massive. A look at the ceiling of the carousel house. Looks like work has been done. Rumor had it, a few years back, that the original carousel was heading back this way to return home. It never happened. Old snack stand, which now has a timeline history of the park posted inside. Old, weathered restrooms. Spooky. I never noticed the word 'Dies' in 'Ladies' until I saw this sign in this eerie context... Still, this is just a small example of the intricacies of an old amusement park. Even the bathrooms had stone-carved signs. Old arcade/games building. I love the old-school name. Old ticket booth. 15 cent rides? Yes please. The star of the show is sitting to the right of the booth... The train from Rocky Springs 1928 Wildcat. They don't make them like that anymore. It's on display under a pavilion as you enter the property, near where the coaster stood until the early 90's. Wildcat's wheel assembly. A little TLC and this thing could still ride... Doubt it, but it's a nice thought. An old brochure I found somewhere online that I saved years ago. Edited December 2, 2010 by robbalvey Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
