Elmira, New York

Memories of Eldrige Park

Up it would climb to the top and then disappear over the other side. Screaming patrons with their hands raised in the air would opt to ride again and again and fans from all over the Southern Tier and as far away as Harrisburg, Pa., would drive to Elmira to ride on the Speedway. It was a wonderful and well-known attraction at Eldridge Park.

The ride was located in the approximate center of the park and spectators who might not have felt so brave that day, would grab a frozen custard and sit and watch the excitement.
