Aww, too bad that Skyrocket Jr. had to be taken down.

You've got a nice park going there. I like the classic approach and your way of telling the story of this park. :) [up]

THE ROCKET

This coaster was designed by William Cobb the same guy who did Texas Cyclone at Astroworld which closed in 2005.

Here's a few pictures of The Rocket:









This is was pay tribute to The Rocket at Ocean View Amusement Park which was destroyed doing filming of The Death of the Ocean View Park (1979).
