Last Warning

The Comet roller coaster at the old Lincoln Park amusement park site. For more info, check out this tribute site. Below, more pics a guy who looks just like me took on Saturday. Click to enlarge:

So that's it. The big area in front of the coaster looks like a frozen pond, but it was just ice-covered cement. It did feel a little scary walking on ice which cracked under each step, though. At one point we were breaking both the "don't walk on thin ice" AND "don't stand under a decomposing structure" rules at the same time!

I loved that park when I was a kid. Will always be superior to Rocky Point for me.

The roller coaster scared the crap out of me. Nice pictures! Both creepy and exciting.
Thanks! In western CT, we didn't know about either of them. But Kim went to this place a lot. That site I linked has great stuff, including video of the first ride on the Comet--in 1947!

I should point out that I've never been on a roller coaster and don't really plan on ever going on one. I'm a Skee-ball man.
Jere, I love all of these pictures!
