Ghost Track Photos:

The first photo is from Tom Johnston who visited Cassidy in May of 2002. He noted that, "everything was still in place, signs, concession, even the fire truck and ambulance were in their parking spots". A go kart track was still operating on the property at that time but has since closed. The had only been closed for less than four years at that point.

The rest of the photos were shot by Chris Halliday in 2009. As can be seen, a lot more of the track was cleaned up between the two visits.
