The Giant Racer

circa 1912

Postcard showing the Giant Racer. Caption on the back of the card describes the coaster as "the largest on Coney Island, situated opposite Feltmans on Surf Avenue, and is the largest and fastest steel constructed ride in the world, BAR NONE." The Giant Racer replaced the Loop the Loop coaster on the corner of West 10th Street and Surf Avenue, the location now occupied by the Cyclone roller coaster.
