Lakemont Park Winter Views

On our way to the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg yesterday, we made a quick pit stop in Altoona to get some snowy sunrise views of Lakemont. Baseball's summer green grass has been replaced with snow. The Altoona Curve AA Pirates Affiliate plays in the ballpark, and Lakemont's underrated Skyliner looms over the outfield.
Those of you from New York State may remember this coaster from when it was located at Roseland Park that was once located on the northern tip of Canandagua Lake, one of the Finger Lakes in Central New York.
The Chance produced, Toboggan, is the yellow cylindrical structure on the right side of this photograph. It is one of only two remaining operating units in the world. The park's Eli Bridge Ferris Wheel is on the left. 
The toboggan is in the center of this photo. The white coaster in the back is Leap the Dips, the world's oldest operating roller coaster. It was literally zero degrees at this moment, so it was time to dip back into the car! I can't wait for the park to reopen in the spring!
A very limited quantity of our 2015 Roller Coaster Calendars remain, and we are lowering the price from $12.00 to $9.99. They are available through
