Lakemont Park

Some of the pictures are from my first visit to Lakemont back in 1994, and some are from my most recent visit in 2000 to ride my 200th coaster, Leap The Dips.

Ready to ride my 200th
roller coaster

Up the lift hill we go

Rounding the station curve

The awesome 1st drop

Thrilling POV shot

The restored dips

Very nice car

Kiddie coaster...of Death!

Didn't this guy watch
the Rescue 911 segment
about this very coaster?

Nice theming for a
traditional park

The Skyliner's lift hill and
sign. There's a baseball
stadium behind this coaster
now. The Altoona Curves.

First drop on
the Skyliner

That's a lot of wood

The back seat is quite
the ejector seat on the
first drop

A rare classic, the
toboggan. I remember
riding one of these back
in Adventureland on Long
Island when I was a kid.
