Starliner Roller Coaster (Cypress Gardens Adventure Park - Winter Haven, Florida) - Roller Coaster POV Video - Front Row
Starliner was a Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters out and back wooden roller coaster formerly located at Miracle Strip Amusement Park, and then Cypress Gardens Adventure Park which would later become Legoland Florida. The ride opened in 1963 as one of the first attractions in the park and the first permanent roller coaster in Florida.
At the time of construction, Starliner was the first permanent roller coaster in Florida. When Miracle Strip Amusement Park closed in 2004, Starliner was relocated to Cypress Gardens, which later became Legoland Florida. On Monday, November 10, 2008, Land South Holdings announced the temporary closure of Cypress Gardens, which was shut down November 17 of that year. The park would reopen on March 28, 2009, but none of the rides would operate again, including Starliner. However, the ride has been stated to be making a return to Panama City Beach, Florida.
