High atop the Palisades cliffs in the
boroughs of Cliffside Park and Fort Lee once stood the home of the
famous Cyclone roller coaster, the Tunnel of Love, and the world’s
largest outdoor saltwater pool. The place was called Palisades
Amusement Park, and even today, several decades after it closed, the
park is warmly remembered. For those who ever visited the park, this
book is sure to bring back cherished memories and re-create the
thrills, laughter, and joy that was Palisades.
