View Of Boston From Nantasket Coaster
The Nantasket roller coaster at Paragon Park in Hull, Mass. gives riders a good view of the Boston skyline in the distance on Aug. 19, 1982. The giant coaster was built after the park fire in 1919 and open for rides in May 1916. It gave a ride of nearly a mile and a half, its highest point 98 feet above the ground. It cost $100,000 to build and 200 mechanics worked nine months on its construction.
