RIP Ron Toomer: A Tribute

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

RIP Ron Toomer: A Tribute

Post by Paul Drabek » Mon Sep 26, 2011 8:53 pm

The man behind many of Arrow Dynamics coasters and innovations passed away today. His coasters defined the 1970's and 1980's and there are so many rides that would not be here is he wasn't.

In memory of Ron and his legacy please post some photos of his rides here.
