Wordless Wednesday

Tearing down one of the all-time staples to make way for a new roller coaster.  We love roller coasters as much as anyone else, but this one'll be missed.

Those are some great shots! I am not a roller coaster fan myself, but my oldest son LOVES them. My husband hates them, too, so until he's old enough to ride alone, we've been doing our best to avoid taking him on :)

Brandy said...

Wow what a great capture!

Paula Miller said...

Oh that is sad! One of my fav rides was torn down and replaced where I like to go.

Happy WW :)

Love it, we used to have a fab funfair in London (Battersea Funfair) when I was growing up till they decided to pull it down it was a sad day :-)

Enjoy the new replacement ;-)

I have somewhat mixed feelings about roller coasters: Vertigo, but love the speed...

I used to enjoy roller coasters, it's been so many years I don't know if I would enjoy them so much!

Leovi said...

Stunning photos. Everything has an end.

Roller coasters scare me to death, I am afraid of heights! Very cool shots though, it must have been a bittersweet moment!

Annmarie Pipa said...

pretty cool photos. we live very close to Hershey park..and roller coasters are a part of our daily life, I think we would be sad to see any ones go!

I can't do roller coasters with my motion sickness, but it is sad to see something go like that. I was sad to see the 76 ball go on the gas station. Remember that?

I'm a scaredy cat too! Thanks for visiting NanaHood.com Please come back again!

I do remember it...red and blue and it always reminded me of a Clark bar, lol.

Aliy Hurd said...

interesting shot...... rollercoaters can be fun but it is sad when you see the old taken down for the new.

Emilee Roberts said...

Noooo!!! I'm from Northwest Ohio and have great memories of Cedar Point! That kind of makes me sad! :/

Mrs. Stephens said...

Oh no poor ride. My family has been planning a trip to Cedar Point we just haven't made it yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog

Stacy Uncorked said...

Awwww! I guess they need to make room for progress. I was at Cedar Point a long time ago and rode every ride. :) I bet it's changed a lot even since then! :) Awesome shots! :)

I loved roller coasters in my younger days. Not sure I would do as well at my age now. It is always sad to something meaningful being torn down.

Stopping by from VoiceBoks!

Annie said...

Oh no :( I remember when they tore down a favorite ride to make room for a new one.....so many memories......

It's a bit sad to see landmarks go. Even if it's for a new one.

Dominique Goh said...

I'm not one for roller coasters but I hope that they put up more interesting rides in it's place.

Thanks for linking up with my WW, and Thanks so much for the kind words about my photo.
Roller Coasters Love them but I can ride any more :-( I have migraines and I get an instant headache now when I ride. But I sure did love them in my earlier days!

Debi Fitzsimmons said...

Great pics. I'm a rollercoaster fan even though it's been years since I rode one. Thanks for the GFC follow and I am also following:)

Jennifer Leigh said...

I bet the new one will be so worth it though!

Michelle G said...

I haven't been to Cedar Point in so long! Not since a year after I moved up here! Don't they have enough roller coasters already?!? I already won't get on their biggest ones. ;) Some friends wanted us to go to Halloweekends this weekend, but we're not going. I don't want to ride all the big ones. And going with a bunch of skydivers/BASE jumpers. . . . .I think they'll be on all of them! Plus, we don't have babysitters. Have a great Thurday, Rosie!

Loving Roller Coasters too! Sometimes sad to see things destoyed or taken away that have made up our "old" landscapes!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Oh no, that really is kinda sad!

Theresa said...

Awww, I remember riding in that! That is kind of sad to see it go :(

TerriAnn @ Cookies and Clogs said...

Wow, that's like watching history being erased... Some things, while not as exciting, should be kept just for nostalgia sake :(

Eli@coachdaddy said...

You sure you didn't just back into that thing with your car?
