    Magic Forest in Lake George New York still had a diving horse even in the mid 2000's. last time I visited the park was 2003 but it was definitely still an attraction the park was promoting.
    diving horses were also prominent attractions at Coney Island and up and down the New Jersey coast. Atlantic City for instance. There was even a movie based on them made in the 90's https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Hearts_Can't_Be_Broken

    This seems worth a post.



    I bet it even runs more often than the Intamin version.

    Only currently a concept but this came up on Facebook the other day:


    Effectively a Gerstlauer Skyfly on a figure 8 coaster track, would definitely try it if it gets built!

    Ride Engineers have had this concept for a while. I'm confused why Technical Park is just copying them entirely.

    I saw this a while ago and I’m just not sure what to make of it... half of the parts look like they’re made out of plastic, yet it’s surprisingly tall and inverted. Has anyone here ridden this?

    That is a cool homemade looking coaster! I was worried for a moment that I may have driven right past it last month and not known, but it's further South than anywhere I went.

    The other coaster at the same park also looks quite odd. Big Apple trains and track built into a rather substantial looking coaster! Not quite as odd but definitely unusual and different.

    I feel like I just experienced a crash just LOOKING at the support structure.

    Only Big Apple I’d ride. (I’m not that desperate for creds. Yet.)

    And it seems you have to ride naked. Even better!

    This is one of the most weird and well insane videos I have ever seen


    Skip forward to Around the 8min mark as the ride is ascending the lift... Things get even more intense a little after 10mins.

    Note: The date on the video says 1948 but considering the ride in the video (Giant Coaster at Fuji-Q) wasn't built until 1966 this is obviously either not using our calendar or just wrong.

    Definitely some sort of odd publicity stunt. Considering the picture quality and the fire, would it be possible that this formed part of a ride closing ceremony?
