Retro Photo TR: Boblo Island


Recommended Posts

I had a Groupon to get 1000 pictures scanned and put on DVD, so here are some from my one and only trip to Boblo Island back in 1985.

 

I remember the Vekoma corkscrew was new that summer, and it was not too bad.

 

Here is more info on the park itself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boblo_Island_Amusement_Park

 

Now on to the pics!

Thanks for sharing, John....that steel out and back looks like it could have some interesting air time.

 

I was also wondering if those trains on the Vekoma were from the Corkscrew at CP? Didn't they use to have a ride, white and blue train or was it always one red, one white and one blue train?

Very cool photos of what seems like a forgotten park. Wonder if there was a rule that all three coasters had to be all white.

 

^Vekoma used Arrow trains back in the day until they started building their own therefore these were not from Cedar Point (CP's Corkscrew had three trains - one red, one white, one blue).

I'm guessing that all of the coasters were white because white paint is cheaper.
