Soon to be a Lost… Jet Star 2?

I’ve just received and update on the Jet Star 2 that is located in Lithuania. A friend of thelostcoaster blog by the name of Ignas is telling me that this Jet Star 2 is in disrepair and is in need of being refurbished. Only one of the cars are being used and that the other 2 are being used for parts. Here are some the pictures that Ignas has sent me…
This is just part of the pictures that Ignas sent me, I’ve got lots more to post… Makes you want go to Lithuania to see if you can catch a ride on the Jet Star 2… Let’s Ride!!!!

Silent Cedar Point 1973

I can’t tell you how much I love YouTube… This silent Super 8mm video was posted at the end of January 2011. This has some great footage of what Cedar Point looked like when I visited for the first time in 1974. See the original Shoot the Rapids, log ride, big slide and the Frontier Lift. Be on the look out for the Jumbo Jet at :50 and 12:53:

By the looks of the parking lot it was a busy day at Cedar Point… I kinda wish that Cedar Point was not as famous as it is now. It would be nice to go back to the was Cedar Point was back in the 70’s! Let’s Ride!
