I can't believe none of the older people brought this up yet...

Does anyone remember the Steve Miller Band video "Living in the USA"?

It was filmed at Barnum and Baily's Circus World. Originally, the "video" was just part of "Wild Rides", hosted by Matt Dillon. They decided to make the video the official music video for the song, and it played on MTV in it's early days.

Unfortunately, I cannot find any youtube clips of this.

Wow! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I first went to Kings Island way back in 1991, so I guess I missed getting on THE BAT. Of course, two years after my first visit, Kings Island added TOP GUN, which I didn't get to ride until 1999.

This begs the question: If Cedar Point is dropping all Paramount logos and licenses, will TOP GUN be renamed? Could this ride be renamed THE BAT?

Not a great reference as the ride never opened and has sat rusting ever since it was built


I thought that it never had "the electrical system finished" according to rcdb.com yet the picture shows the ride running ::? So Intamin owned Giovanola? AND they owned Scwarzkopf's intellectual property?

I never knew until now that the Luxor boat ride was an Arrow creation. I'm glad I got to ride it in its first year. The 90's era Vegas has become a unique time in Vegas history, situated between old school Vegas and the new party scene/Lindsay Lohan/doing coke in the club restroom Vegas.

Can't wait for Colossus!
