@lnxw48a1 I can't help but wonder how my life would be different if Crystal Beach Amusement Park survived. I was promised a job running the train as soon as I turned 14. I would have spent every summer working at the park during the day and partying every night, I bet. It would have been one hell of a time. The park closed permanently when I was 7 years old.
@lnxw48a1 and Detroit's "Crystal Beach," Boblo Island, which lasted a few more years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boblo_Island_Amusement_Park
@lnxw48a1 the train from Crystal Beach survives at a winery that I drive past on the way to Toronto, but I haven't stopped to see it.
Of course my family has made the pilgrimage to Crystal Beach's famous roller coaster, The Comet, at its new home.
