Electric Park

In 1906, the Electric Park opened along the Galveston coast at the foot of the current pier, billing itself as "The Coney Island of the South." The waterfront park's brightly illuminated rides included a carousel, a figure-eight roller coaster and an aerial swing that created a mesmerizing stroboscopic effect.
