Coasters you have been on that are gone now

Recommended Posts

Just three for me, and a kiddie at that!


Python: Busch Gardens Africa, FL

Rockin' Rider (S.B.C. Galaxi): Canobie Lake Park, NH

Go-Gator: Palace Playland, ME


The list of coasters I wish I'd ridden before they closed (Psyclone, Drachen Fire esp.) is much longer...

So, I searched a whole lot (so as not to emulate my hero!! (see title)) and couldn't come up with anything. So here goes:


I was thinking it would be cool if we could gauge age by rides we have ridden that others may not have heard of or only seen in pictures. I work in customer service and am always talking to people and it's funny to see the blank stares you get from people when you mention some of this stuff. Does it make anyone else feel old? You could list by park or just rides.


Kings Island

King Cobra

Flight Commander

Screamin Demon

Dolphin Show

The Bat (didn't ride, but watched it)


Cedar Point

Ferris Wheel in old location

Double Log Flume where Raptor is

You know, I'm just not seeing the point to this--escpecially since a similar thread about "defunct" rides already exists (as pointed out in the second post in this thread).
