Michael Linton sent a link to his original music called, "Double
Cyclone". The sounds will take you back to the "good old
days" of the Pike. (Scroll down until you get to Selected
Compositions and then pick #1 Double Cyclone): Click
"The Cyclone Racer closed in 1968. At one time, it
was the largest and fastest coaster in the U.S. It was called the racer
because there were two trains on two separate tracks that raced one
another from start to finish.
Webmaster Note: They had a height
requirement, but my brother was able to hide me so I could ride it. I
used to hate it when I was on the ride, but as soon as I got off, I
wanted to go on it again!

last day of operation, and during the process of its demolition.

By the way I have updated today my rct3 rides webpage which lists all
known existing rides and today at the bottom, 13 new rides that will be
out in June in their new add-on pack.
Here is the page link. http://sebar.com/rct3/rct3rides.html
These links would be a great resource for those who want to visit my
nupike model and also experience many new parks and rides. RCT3 won the
best game of 2004 for strategy.
