In the 2003 book "The Golden Age of Roller Coasters" by David W. and Diane DeMali Francis, it is written: "A very attractive coaster appeared at Newport Beach, Rhode Island, in 1913.  ...  This coaster was razed in 1930 and replaced by a daring Fred Church design that was built by Harry G. Traver.  It failed to survive the great New England hurricane of 1938."  This second roller coaster has yet to be confirmed, considerable photos exist of the first side-friction coaster, but at this time, none have been found of this second roller coaster.
