FORT LEE - Cars once thought to be lost from the Cyclone roller coaster at Fort Lee's now-demolished Palisades Amusement Park are back in town.

The roller coaster was demolished in 1971, but the cars were preserved.

Fort Lee historical expert Tom Meyers says it's quite a find. "To find this in an abandoned amusement park or a closed amusement park in the wilds of Pennsylvania and to bring this piece of history back and make it new again is amazing and nothing short of miraculous," he says.
