Ah, Great America's Turn of the Century was on the cover--an Arrow with airtime back in the 1970s. Oh, those misty, water-colored memories . . .

It was cool to see those old photos of Nessie, too.

I've got pictures of Turn of the Century at SFGAm I need to scan. My Dad took them on my first trip, which was when I was two or three.

I've also got a stack of EPCOT stuff from the grand opening year.

I'll just take a montage video of all the old attractions. (Horizons, Figment, e.g.)

Perhaps Boyz II Men's "Its So Hard To Say Goodbye" could be edited over it?

moose wrote:Iteresting article. Shane, I too was shocked about the wooden markup. I know something similar was used in submarine construction up until about 5 or 10 years ago. It was the best and cheapest way to make sure things fit.

I am guessing Claude and Walter used computers as the transitions etc are way to smooth to have been done entirely by hand. (bu that's just a guess).


Attic, Closet, then basement? these fun places are getting more interesting names :P


Moose, I am hoping you know that I was joking about Walter and Claude using plywood cutouts to engineer their transitions...I think you did.

Hoping we will see "Moose's Dungeon" soon!

You don't have a dungeon!? That's sad :( Lol

Interesting stuff, I liked the long straight-away after the two loops on Demon when I rode it on the Midwest Tour, the tunnel was epic! It'd be cool with two airtime hills there instead of two loops though.

Arrow airtime ='s painfully awesome!
