Palisades' Traver Cyclone footage

Post by Sora » Mon Jan 11, 2010 9:44 am

This is footage of the Harry Traver Cyclone that was at Palisades Park from 1927-1934, one of the three most extreme coasters ever built. It was a smaller version of the Crystal Beach Cyclone, not the one everyone remembers which closed with the park in the 1970's. There is a little bit of POV footage, from the top of the lift to the spiral's exit, starting at 1:15 on the video. Hold on tight! :twisted:
