Fantasy Island changed the skyline of this amusement park with the addition of Silver Comet. As you drive past, on the nearby Interstate, the silver gleam of the steel coaster track immediately catches your attention, drawing you into the park for a ride. Offering an exciting "out and back" start and rollicking twister finale, the Silver Comet offers the best drops in Niagara, aside from Niagara Falls itself.

After sitting idle for two-and-a-half years, Silver Comet resumed operation as the flagship ride at the reopened Niagara Amusement Park & Splash World.
