Miles-

Thanks for making me stay the extra hours into the night. I didn't get home until 11:30 but it was so worth it to get those night rides in on Revolution, Colossus, Ninja, Goliath & Scream. I haven't had that much fun at Magic Mountain in I don't know how long!

And RIP Psyclone, thanks for letting us slip by, we owe ya.

On another note, I am really glad to see Tim Burkhart in a position to do something about Magic Mountain. As an 18 year old ride attendant on the Sarajevo Bobsled, Tim was my supervisor. I remember once he pulled me aside and really gave it to me cause I was chewing gum on the job. He really cares about that park and has most of his life invested in it. I never forgot it and a warning to those of you chewing gum on the job....Spit it out or feel the wrath of Tim!

Are you sure it was a cologne and not some kind of animal repellant?

I've never heard of theme park cologne. Who would want to smell like Circus World?

I wonder if there was this much sorrow when the monorail at Carowinds was taken out?

RIP METRO


I miss the Carowinds monorail. It added a little something extra. I wonder how many know why it went all the way out of the park toward I-77? Well, because originally it was supposed to lead to a park hotel that was never built (much like the Disney World monorail goes through the Contemporary Resort).

Like the long-gone sky ride, it was the perfect attraction for older visitors and great for park photography. RIP.

I miss the Vancouver EXPO 86 monorail, that's featured in the posted flyer here. It was great to get around the world's fair's site on it. It had a great layout and I always enjoyed riding it.

And - I DID get to ride it again, 20 years later... at Alton Towers!

:airtime:

I had totally forgotten that they bought the monorail from EXPO, and installed it to run between the parking lot and the main entrance into the park.

That was so great having the chance to ride on it again, after two decades! It really was one of the highlights for me, of going to AT on the tour. Riding my old missed monorail, lol.

Gone but not Forgotten

Unfortunately not all good things last forever. Here is a look at some brochures from parks that are no longer around. Sometimes we forget that these parks ever existed. I mean you just don't hear to much about Bob-Lo anymore. MGM Grand Adventures was a completely forgettable park and Ghost Town in the Sky, while it has recently reopened I have a look at it before it sat dormant for several years. There are also a couple of parks for our friends across the pond.

Here is a look at some parks that are Gone but not Forgotten...

I didn't realize that Americana Park was as big as it was! I thought it was just a few flats, and not much else, from what I remembered back then...

:?r

I was visiting the midwest back in 1995, and got Kings Island, Worlds of Fun, and Kentucky Kingdom in while travelling.

And I stayed with friends of my buddy, and one of them worked at Americana - but the subject of going to it for a vist never came up, at the time.

Hmmmmph. :x

Heck, I might have even gotten a discount to get in...

Oh well. Timing.

It's a nice batch of flyers to browse through, Shane.

And even dear old - gone old - Southport (late of the TPR UK'06 Tour), heh heh!

Thanks for more great stuff!!! I did go to MGM Grand Adventures one time (1995) for their "Scream Park" Halloween promotion. And I know I have that map somewhere. It's too bad that park didn't make it. :(

I never did get to ride the Lightning Bolt when they moved it outside and extended it. From what I've heard, it was purchased and is supposed to be rebuilt somewhere (but I can't remember where!).

^Fresno!

I did get to ride it when it was indoors as well. If I ever happen to be in Fresno I'd like to ride the extended version. I believe Shane was involved in its sale.
