Flyer Comet

The Flyer Comet at the defunct Whalom Park in Massachusetts was one of the most frightening roller coasters that I've ever been on. I was really scared of Space Mountain in Disney World when I was 5, but I rode the Flyer Comet as a young adult and after I had been jaded by riding a lot of coasters. And it still scared me!

Not because of how tall or fast it was, no, but because of the shaking, squealing, creaking, and grass growing up under the tracks!

The ride was demolished in October of 2006. I just randomly thought of it and found this... so take a ride!
