The Bobsled Postcard

Stuff From The Park - a blog which collects 'images and other items from Disneyland, theme parks and other amusement parks' - has provided some information on The Bobsled, a ride which graced Coney Island from the '40s through the '70s:

The coaster was purchased from the World's Fair and moved to Coney Island in 1940. The track, if you want to call it that, is a half pipe and the cars run down the half pipe, banking on the curves and gaining speed. The cars are in a train similar to other roller coasters. The Bobsled was shuttered in 1974 and subsequently demolished in 1975.
