dc.description Rev. Henry Cooke wrote in the Gibraltar Record in July, 1903 about "a new excitement at Put-in-Bay - An Aerial Railway." His description suggests the railway was what we'd call today a roller coaster: "Why is it people like such things, to turn and twist and dive, and be thrown from one side to the other of a baby cariage [sic] on wheels, all (with a spice of danger thrown in) for a nickel (six for a quarter). Yet even we old people went once in a while just to take the children...who were wild over it." en_US
