Toronto Coaster


Recommended Posts

I was reading a book about ballparks and it had a picture of the old Exhibition Stadium up in Toronto. The picture in the book showed that the stadium had a large wooden roller coaster right next to it? Was that actually in the ballpark, or just a coaster put up next to a ballpark.ex3.jpg.cf41916ef13b36d896ddec0ae3f82eb6.jpg

Found a pov of the ride in its last year of operation. Good ride or bad ride, I couldn't imagine a more desolate place for a coaster, and only open for 18 days per year when the Expo came to town. Are there any other wooden coasters that only operate three weeks a year?

There used to be a coaster at the Texas State Fair that I think operated like that. Also, Robb found a coaster (theres a POV) somewhere that was at a park only open to the public like 3 days a year.

As far as I know it only opened during the CNE.

 

This reminds me of the roller coaster only open during the

Puyallup Fair, north of Seattle. Which is in September, every year.

 

Which makes me ask, are there other coasters that are (or were) in

this kind of situation - only open during a fair, etc?

 

Just curious.

^ It's my mistake, I meant to be more specific.

 

The coasters in Toronto, and Puyallup are/were there

all year, every year and open ONLY during their respective fairs.

 

I think it's more wooden coasters that I was wondering about,

those that can't be portable like (most) steel ones can for fairs

and carnivals.

 

Sorry, for not clarifying.

There was one side friction one in Belgium that closed in 2003. Besides that I can not think of any.

There used to be a woodie (the "Mad Mouse") at the Melbourne Showgrounds, only open for the two weeks of the Melbourne Show each year. Had two-person cars and from memory was quite a wild ride. It was removed in 2003, but the Wild Mouse at Sydney's Luna Park is the same layout (not sure about the cars).

Airtime or lateral g's?

 

From what I heard of Flyer, it had Coney Island Cyclone-like curves and the bunny hops gave great air. People who rode it also noted the awkwardly long train length; it gave a push/pull feel on the curves but delivered great forces at the same time. The ride was short and all the curves were in the same direction
