Part One- Defunct Coasters


Kiddie Coaster and Wild Mouse @ Lakewood Park

Hercules @ Dorney

Whirlwind and Jet Star @ Knoebels

Cyclone @ Williams Grove (not counting Wildcat since it was relocated)


Part Two- Former Rides that few remember


Cedar Point- Millrace, San Francisco Earthquake, Pirate Ride, Double Ferris Wheel, Zugspitz.


Dorney- Journey to the Center of the Earth, Whacky Shack, Paratrooper. Instead of turning where you do now to go into the parking lot, the road used to go straight into where the catering pavilions are now. Also, who else remembers Alfundo?


Hershey- Lost River and The Bug (where the Swings and Paddleboat Cafe are today). Rotor. Also a street used to run between the stadium and the old arena. You can see where this street intersected with Route 743 from the Trailblazer lift hill.


Knoebels- the "Human Gym" although I can't remember its exact location. The rocket slide used to be where the Galleon is now. The "midway" where Power Surge and Downdraft stand used to be part of the main road into the park. At one time, the pool and train were the only attractions on that side of the road.

Sauzer's Kiddieland, Schererville, IN:

Roller Coaster

Wild Mouse



King's Island:

Screamin' Demon (later just Demon)

King Cobra

Son Of Beast (with loop)


Six Flags Great America:

Turn Of The Century (though half the ride still exists as Demon)

Z-Force (relocated twice to SFOG/SFMM then dismantled-I did get to ride it at SFMM a couple times after it left my 'home' park.

Rolling Thunder (which has been relocated)

Tidal Wave (relocated twice)


Deja Vu


Cedar Point:

Wildcat (the original one out by Space Spiral- although the one that exists today at the park is an exact duplicate)


Six Flags Magic Mountain:

Flashback (see Z-Force above^)



Six Flags St. Louis:


River King Mine Train (relocated side of ride)


Six Flags Over Georgia:

Viper (formerly Tidal Wave at SFGAM-then relocated to SFKK)


If I can think of more I will post them
