Parkscope Bonus YouTube Video #3: Euclid Beach: Gone Too Soon II

Euclid Beach Park was a very popular amusement pier in Cleveland, OH. Built in 1895, Euclid Beach Park lasted until 1969 when it was torn down. Euclid Beach Park was one of the most famous amusement piers in the country in the 1950s and 60s, with original wooden Flying Turns coasters, wooden bobsled coasters, racing coasters, and the famous Euclid Beach popcorn balls. The memories of Euclid Beach Park is a haven for old amusement park fans. This video was created by an especially avid Euclid Beach fan in 1993, who had taken two decades of home movies and assembled them into this presentation, combining old footage with a documentary history of the park and several interviews from former employees and guests. It's certainly a treasure for those of you who are fans of the old amusement parks. Enjoy!
