There are quite a few for me, but the one that sticks out the most is the Crystal Beach Giant, known to most locals as "The Yellow Coaster." As a side note: The Giant was the last remaining coaster in North America that carried multiple car trains and DID NOT have understop wheels!

Here's my list:


Hurricane (Playland Park, Relocated)

Dragon Wagon (Adventureland, Long Island)

Viper (SFGadv)

Jet Star (Casino Pier)

Wizards Cavern (Casino Pier)


The one I miss the most is probably Viper. Even though it was rough it was really unique and I loved the first inversion, it felt as if I were upside down forever haha.

Original Big Dipper at Luna Park Sydney - I was there the day it burned from a fire in another attraction.

Demon - Wonderland Sydney, now at Vision Land in Alabama.

Bush Beast and Beastie - park closed, crap woodies don't know if they are torn down yet.

Thunderbolt - Dreamworld, torn down gone and long forgotten.

Thrillseeker - Sea World Queensland, might be in storage.

Big Dipper Luna Park - Arrow steel looper, relocated to Dreamworld as Cyclone

Wildcat - closed after park fire in 1979, portable - whereabouts unknown.

Space Mountain original version - I guess that kinda counts.

Flashback - that almost counts.

Firefly (Benson's)

Kiddy Coaster (CLP)


You reminded me of:

Rockin' Rider (CLP)

Flitzer (York's)

Wildcat (MFI)

Galaxi (Pirates)

Orient Express (Pirates)

Double Loop (Fuji-Q)

Flying Fish (Thorpe)

King Kobra (PKI)

Orient Express (WoF)

Wild Maus (BGW)

Hercules (DP)

Whirlwind (Knoebels)

Viper (6FGAdv)

Scooby Doo (PKI)

Wind Jammer (KBF)

Wacky Soap Box Racers (KBF)

Lightning Bolt (MGM)


Status uncertain:

Wildcat (WG)

Cyclone (WG)

Hayabusa (Tokyo Summerland)

Rail Blazer-Standup SF St. Louis

The Mine Train-one of the original tracks was sold to Dollywood and the other track was converted to Rail Blazer then the accident which reopened as the River King Mine Train and the other track dismantled.

Jet Scream SFSTL moved to Astroworld then I think finally picked up in a sale after the auction.

I belive the Mindbender in SFChicago where the SUF now sits.
