More Morecambe Frontierland on YouTube

Postby Gary » 28 Jun 2008, 17:50

The Cableway, Mexican Hat (Satellite / Trabant) Rattler (BPB's Big Apple) and King Solomon's Mines in its old guise before Nick et al saved it from the Pleasureland Bulldozers.

5 minutes of greatness. It's all here.

Please pass through the turnstiles if you are riding again.

Also there's a classic 1996 video of the park's former Texas Tornado coaster (formerly Cyclone). I never realised it had some backward facing carriages on it too; maybe just a gimmic for that period??

I could kick myself for not having a go on that on my one and only visit there in 1987 on a rather overcast day.

Here's the link;

Sorry - that last post was previously posted here under its own thread. Many apologies.

However, I do not think this video has been posted here before. It's a group of performers at the park in 1994 called the Morecambe Raiders. Looked good fun, unless you were one of those poor guests held up on that train maybe!

Thank God for YouTube; no many classic finds.

I apologise in advance if this clip has been posted before;

This is just for fun (a soapy Morecambe log flume);

Martin :(

PS Strange how some parks and coasters just about last until their even birthday anniversary; Texas Tornado was 60 and the Southport Cyclone was almost 70 when that met its sudden fate.
