Looked like a pretty cool place, but I can also understand why it had trouble down in that area of the country.

Either way Great work!

Can I park my donkey here?

It's cool to see photos of Arkansas Twister before it came to Magic Springs. I guess there's something about that coaster that parks like to name it after the state it's in :)
MY SPINE!!! :wtf:

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

I was able to visit the park back in the late 80's, but never got to ride the coasters. ...Stupid sunburn from Daytona Beach. Anyway, it's really nice to see some of the old pics and brochures. Thanks Shane.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Any chance there's still some remnants of B&B there? It was interesting to see how close to Disney it was: right on I-4 and US-27.

Great stuff, Shane!

Is it just me or has the "magic" disappeared from amusement parks today? I mean I look at all these old pictures you have and it gives me a warm feeling while today's park make me shake my head.

It's a shame..

I think it's old spot was pointed out to us on our Florida trip back in October.

Basically looked like a big empty field that you never would have realized a theme park used to be.

I remember being in Orlando in '88 or '89 and picking up this exact brochure at a hotel lobby:

I said to the people I was with "We should go check it out" and the answer was "no, we're here to see Disney." (We all worked for Disney at the time.)

Turns out I should have just went!

Oh, well.....

Same for me. I was in Orlando in Xmas of '89 and I picked one up in a motel lobby. I think I still have it.

Also never got to go to B&B.

Judging from the star's location around the intersection on the brochure (both of them):

Image

...It would appear there are still quite a few baseball diamonds visible. (Unless those are relatively new, but it doesn't look like it.)
