60 coaster track


"Only a wooden track of roller coaster" I couldn't get a good shot of the roller coaster at Playland Amusement Park. I kept missing it again and again. (Canon 300D, 2005)

I like this one. I'm curious to know what the coaster does after the drop. It looks quite rickety indeed!

Wow I love coasters! The wooden rickety ones are the best ones! Love your take on the coaster! Ah.. I wish there were coasters here.. I'd wait 3 hours just get on one for a 5 minute ride! Thanks!

When I close my eyes, it feels like I can hear the sound of the roller coaster running and people screaming and laughing...! Cool shot!

Nice choice of framing - the coaster seems to drop off of the end of the world.

Very honest of you - I would have just claimed it as a still life abstract and not mentioned the failed attempt at the car :-)))

In all honesty though it does work well with the diagonal sweep and complex supporting structure.

You don't see many wooden track coasters anymore. We had one in the theme park back home, the screaming eagle. It was loud, rough & scary as hell. They finally had to shut it down when it was falling apart & people were getting hurt.
