Some views of the Cyclone Racer at the Pike in Long Beach.
Yeah...I lived in Long Beach in the late 1950's. We used to go to the "Nu-Pike" frequently. The roller coaster was known as the "Cyclone Racer".
I went on it just once, and it scared me so much on the first plunge that I bit my cigarette in half and swallowed it.
I would ride the Bumper Cars as long as I had dimes!
I just read an article on a coaster they're opening in Canada, I immediately knew it was the next item on my bucket list. It looks like there's little chance that you'll get off it with clean drawers on.
During WW 2 I went to Palisades Amusement Park across from NYC on the Hudson River with my older sister
And later during the war years I went to Coney Island. After moving to California after the war I went to the Amusement Park at Santa Cruz.
Steeplechase Mechanical Horse Ride at Steeplechase Park, Coney Island, early 1900's
roller coaster at Sydney's Luna Park circa: 1960s.
The new 'Blue Fire' coaster at Dreamworld, QLD, Australia.
I lived in North Long Beach for a few years in the 50's and 60's. Visited the NuPike many times.
