Memories of Eldrige Park

Oh, the anticipation of this ride was better than the ride itself. Waiting in line and watching was half the fun. Riders got jerked around the circular course and as they went into a turn, braced for the whipping action of the car to press them back into their seat, only to be jerked forward again as they went through the straightaway headed for another turn just seconds away from the previous one.

Upchucking was not an uncommon site on this spine-breaker.

How about you? Do you remember Eldridge Park?
