Defunct Roller Coasters (8)
|Former names:||New Rocky Glen|
Ghost Town in the Glen
|History:||During the mid 1940s or prior, partners in the park had a falling out. The result was the separation of the park into two adjacent parks separated by a concrete wall that shared essentially the same name. The northwestern side (Rocky Glen Park) was owned by the Nallin-Jennings Park Company and was accessible by a public road. The southeastern portion (Sterling's Rocky Glen Park) was owned by Ben Sterling and his wife (operating as Glen Amusement Company) and was accessible primarily by rail.|
By 1949, each park had a carousel, a roller coaster, a restaurant, bath-houses on the lake frontage and bumper cars. The 1950 fire destroyed Sterling's penny arcade, the coaster, funhouse and Tokio Canals ride owned by Nallin-Jennings. The following year, Sterling bought out his competitor, combined the parks and disposing of duplicate rides.
