Long before the Florida Turnpike and the Interstate Highway System ramped up to full speed and swampland in Central Florida was paved over, Florida tourist venues and roadside attractions were an eclectic mix of fun, imagination, intrigue and amazement for everyone. From reptile farms, tropical gardens and aquatic springs to dolphin shows, old west towns and museums of the unique and strange, tourists visiting Florida were able to catch, either by design or on a whim, these venues, as they rolled down US highways 1,19, 41, 301 and all the off-the-beaten-path back roads. But as time marched on, so did the tourist, as they stayed on the interstate and headed for Orlando, to see what all the hub-bub was about in the early 1970s. The venues and attractions may be long gone, but they are not forgotten, as memories of the wonderful tourist and roadside attractions that were a piece of Florida history, are recalled.

Coney Island was a herald of change from the very beginning. The rise of powerful forces demonstrate the influence of mass consumerism and enterprises over the progressive voice occurred between 1880 and 1911. A series of ingeniously designed amusement parks emerged as the products of various showmen. These people intentionally targeted the middle class by appealing to their values of refinement. While reformers stood by the failures of society, these parks offered a positive approach to life. The height of visual spectacle and novelty was the Luna Park, which shunned traditional Victorian norms of civility and refinement and turned towards lavish attractions. Middle class ideas of leisure changed along with their own patterns and behaviors as a result. Novelty was the crucial element of the cultural changes that emerged in those years. Many examples are evidence of the changing middle class tastes and values. Novelty, commercialization and consumerism helped insinuate the middle class way of life at Coney Island. Despite their apparently opposing roles as consumers and reformers, they marked the era of movement towards transformation.

They were occupied by one main thing, rolling boulders down big hill into a pond or other water source. If they had no boulder, they would hollow out big tree stumps and sit in them. They enjoyed the fact that a “godly” force called centripetal force was keeping them inside of the tree stump. The people started off with a small and simple ride which was similar to modern day toddler rides even though it was made out of sticks, twigs, and rope from animal hide. They slowly began to build a very more diverse set of rides and eventually came up with the idea of a fast roller coaster and a water ride. They named
