Ride The Corkscrew Again . . . Almost
Posted by Mike on February 8, 2008
This one’s for the Rhode Islanders. Like me, many of you have fond memories of Rocky Point, that cheesy amusement park from yesteryear. We will never taste chowda and clamcakes in the World’s Largest Shore Dining Hall, spit on the fat lady in the House of Horrors or be drenched by flume bacteria water ever again, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go down memory lane every now and then.
Many of the park’s rides were auctioned off when the park was sold. One of the park’s main attractions, the Corkscrew, wound up in Seattle. Even more miraculously, some Rhode Islanders did too. Lucky for us, they filmed their ride on the relocated rollercoaster and now we can ride the corkscrew again, sort of.
As you watch the video, you’ll be amazed at the familiar sounds and how you will remember exactly where the turns and loops are.
