One year ago, fans of Rock Springs Park were offered the chance to take a virtual ride on the Cyclone on my blog here. The last real ride on the Cyclone was taken on Labor Day 1970 as the lights of the park were being turned off forever.
Also on this date one year ago, Betty Reynolds, known as “Granny” to her grand and great-grandchildren, passed away. Betty worked at Rock Springs Park following graduation from high school, and later at Allison's Restaurant in Chester. See Betty and read more about her life and family here.
