Kyle Lindner writes at Coaster101 and is also a graphic designer and photographer. He’s put a neat twist on roller coaster and theme park photography with his chromoskedasic prints. As you’ll see the pictures have a really unique look with a style that goes way beyond your typical roller coaster photos.
Kyle explained to me how these prints are made:
They’re called chromoskedasic prints, they are printed on black and white silver gelatin photograph paper. The chromoskedasic chemicals react to the paper and create colors on a otherwise colorless paper.

Theme Park Photos from Another World
As good artwork should, his prints really evoke your imagination. I’ve found myself staring at them and not just because of the cool rides like Banshee at Kings Islandand Wildfire at Silver Dollar City, but because of these unusual otherworldly scenes he’s produced.
Some give the impression that you’re looking at antique photos of attractions from the past and not modern day thrill rides. While others give me the impression that they’re rides from some dark dimension or post-apocalyptic future. Either way, the results are very cool. I also really like how the skies have a gold or brownish hue while the structures of the rides are highlighted in a very unique way.
I recently finished working on my new home office and the pictures go perfectly with the look I’m going for. They also stand out in more modern settings. At work, in my cube, I’m sure I’ll get a few questions and interested looks once they’re on display there.
Eventually I’m going to frame them, but for now, here are a few of my favorites in 8×10 prints:
