It's just such an absolute shame it was permitted to get to that point structurally.

Good, then we can point fingers at those who neglected such a historical treasure. There's unfortunately a tradition, in Utah, to neglect and destroy many historical treasures. It's even more puzzling when the predominant religion, that supposedly values their history, does it to themselves.

Thanks for the super awesome pic! It is really cool to see but I suspect a ride on it was intolerable.

There is one story of a lady sueing Saltair because her back hurt after riding the Racer claiming the cars were not built correctly.

Just wait until my book is released or if ya run into me at the park I'll show ya. But Ive got tons of pictures that no historical collection has.


EDIT: I even have pictures from inside of the coasters station.

So its been a while since I last gave an Update on the Lost History of Saltair, 7.5 months in fact. Life has been crazy busy. My son was born, we bought a new house etc. just crazy busy. I keep plugging away on my book and I just finished another 40 page section the other night and its going out to a few trusted people to begin the proof reading process. Once its been proofread and edits made that will be over 100 pages completed of my book. Well, completed in the fact that the written portions are done. Once I am done with the whole book, then I'll move into what pictures I will include in each section. The reason for waiting on that is some pictures copyrights associated with them and so once I know which ones to use, then I can tackle the process of obtaining the copyrights required for publishing. Although I have many pictures that no copyrights or that I already own the copyrights to them. This book is set to become the best reference book on not just Saltair but all of the Great Salt Lake Bathing Resorts. It will be a must have for anyone interested in the history of Utah, The GSL, Amusement Parks ect.

The people who donated to the publishing of the book, I have it all marked down and they will be the first ones to receive copies of the book. (Two on that list are members of this site.)

That's the update for now.
