This is very nice. Some of the rides look like hellish death traps, but according to Todd, some of them are still used in Australia. Anyway, enjoy! Smile

By the way, Todd, how much of this is still in use today?

Nathan's Hot Dogs, the Wonder Wheel ferris wheel and the Cyclone roller coaster are the only things seen in that film that are still around. Sad. There are a number of rides and attractions going on in Coney Island, but those three things (along with the beach) are all that are left from that film.

That is really sad. And there is no interest from investors or anything to rejuvinate Coney Island? Smile

If I were ever to win the lottery I would donate it all to the rebuilding of Coney Island. I was not around for it's hayday but everything about it makes me happy. I watched this movie and felt very sad that a place like that somehow slipped away from us. My plan is to get my piece of Coney Island. I hope to be in the sideshow but even a janitor would be fine by me. Someday.


As always,
Dylan
