They say, whatever goes up has to come down. The Dania Beach Florida Hurricane Roller Coaster in southern Broward County has been a landmark for residents and tourists since year 2000. Just this past week the demolition of the monstrous wooden structure has begun and it created a buzz through the south Florida community. The ride itself closed five years ago and hasn’t been operated since. Some are happy to see it go but some are sad and believe it or not, I rode when it reopened in 2000, lots of memories from my childhood on a wooden roller coaster!
