Miracle Strip continues expansion with Sea Dragon
Miracle Strip Amusement Park continues expanding with the opening of the Sea Dragon, a step back in time to the original ride that has restored and ready to take on thrill seekers. It was tracked down in Missouri and after three months of hard work, it was opened for the first brave riders on Friday.
The first ride at Pier Park, a painted pony carousel that operated at the original Miracle Strip, was brought back in April 2009 after its rehabilitation.
The success of the new attraction is just the latest in efforts by locals to transplant many of the original rides that once thrilled visitors at the old Miracle Strip Amusement Park before it closed in 2004.
The painted pony carousel and the teacup ride, are the original machines that have been restored and returned for a brand new generation. It's a family ride that will thrill everyone from the little ones to the adults.
Spring Break is just a few weeks away, and the amusement park and the new rides are geared toward families who might not want to fight the crowd at the annual beach parties. I love seeing the old rides return, and folks who once visited Miracle Strip as children now bring their own children and share the memories!
