Carnival and Coasters

The fair was back in town (same traveling carnival we saw in 2019), so we went over at an uncrowded time to go on some rides, especially the “Orient Express” dragon mini-coaster.

That got me thinking about roller coasters in Nova Scotia — or the lack of them, as there currently none active as of 2022. There was the Tree Topper in Upper Clements Park, now closed. Atlantic Playland (now Atlantic Splash Adventure) used to have Rockin’ Roller Coaster, retired in 2016. They’ve imported Runaway Mine Train from Gillian’s Wonderland in Ocean City NJ but construction on that has been delayed.

Currently if you want to ride a roller coaster in Atlantic Canada it looks like there are three working coasters on Prince Edward Island. That’s for future PEI travel plans.
