Featured Photo #9 – An ‘Iconic’ Amusement Park Photo

Lasso Swing Ride - Darien Lake
This is a photo of Darien Lake’s Lasso. It’s a swing carousel or wave swinger built by Zierer. I took this photo on my first trip to the¬†Buffalo area¬†park back in 2003. It was my wife’s home park growing up. Years later, this photo was chosen by Schmap as the icon for Darien Lake in their Buffalo guide. I think that alone earns it a spot in my book.
