This time of year always brings back memories of summer's past. We found this great POV video of the old Galaxi roller coaster at Palace Playland in OOB.

Sure, Palace Playland still has fantastic rides, but you may have grown up on the Galaxi.

For thousands of Mainer's, it was the first roller coaster they ever rode!

According to David Jellis who made this great YouTube video:

The Galaxi roller coaster opened at Palace Playland, Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA in 1994 after 21 years at Peony Park, Nebraska. This video was filmed just 11 days before the roller coaster closed for good (in 2017).

We always loved the Galaxi, not just for the thrills bit for the awesome views of OOB and the ocean that you would get at the top. Ready to take that ride one more time? Strap in and let's go!
