I don’t have that video, but try lotion or vaseline...I think that might help you out where you need it...lol

This has been a season of unique exclusives here in Shane’s Amusement Attic. There was the unique look at San Diego’s proposed AeroWorld park (thank you Meyers Jacobson) a look at another proposed San Diego Theme Park called “Gold Springs” and also some unique proposed projects for Paramount’s Great America. Here is another look at something rare that you might not find anywhere else. The 1979 IAAPA Manual & Guide. This guide has ads from parks, manufacturers and suppliers. Back before the days of internet and web pages this was the only way to get information out. So I am proud to present, in a multi-part series, this very unique and exclusive look at the IAAPA Manual & Guide.
ahhh... I miss this place
Hells to the yes on the Zipper!

I love the Chance flat rides ads - so iconic, and Zipper is the best flat ever in the history of mankind, although the Togo flat ride of hot death in Japan gives it a run for its money. Painful to see the Bell's ad. Great update, Shane.
Thanks for posting that, Shane. Looking forward to seeing more from the book.
Hard to believe Funtime was only ten years old and yet the transformation of Geauga Lake in that short time, now boasting two looping coasters (a first for an Ohio park), was a big deal back then. Oh, the memories.
With so many companies building giant Ferris Wheels nowadays it would be cool to reintroduce the double Ferris Wheels/Skywheel again though the old Intamin spider arm double wheels were much cooler to ride.
Yes, I do have quite the collection. As a kid I was obsessed with any information I could get my hands on that had anything to do with theme parks. I was fortunate my father was somewhat in the business and that afforded me a lot of opportunities to go to trade shows, meet people in the industry and get back stage inside looks at parks. I also have to thank my Mom who was wise enough not to throw away all my boxes when I left home for college. She put them all up in the "attic" knowing someday I would want to look through it all again...Thanks Mom!
