Coney Vid: Jumbo Jet Roller Coaster

JUMBO JET roller coaster - CONEY ISLAND, NY 1992

The Jumbo Jet was an exciting steel roller coaster that operated at Coney Island, NY for 30 years before being dismantled in 2002. I took this video on a visit to this world famous playground in 1992. Instead of adding a music track, I found it more appealing to hear the actual sounds of what a typical summer day in Coney was like. You can hear the screams, the barkers, the games and of course the roar of the coaster. Warning: This video may give you chills! Enjoy.
