Wow this thread is amazing.
I can't believe that 'rainbow' ride that looked like an enterprise or orbit on an arc was actually constructed and operated.
Here is some interesting Info on Old Indiana Fun Park that many people may already know but I find it interesting, being the Hoosier that I am.
Someone mentioned the bobsled that was sitting disassembled in an indiana field for some time. Many people may already know this but that was the Old Indiana Fun Park property. I had the chance to visit there when I was younger before the unlucky miniature train accident but I was too young to ride the two credits: Montagnes Russes & Mad Mouse. Here is a link to the RCDB page detailing the history of the park, it's many name changes, financial trouble, and it's downfall:
^The pictures when you click on the coasters are just sad.
The coasters were transported from Opryland & SFNE for storage after the park had closed so they never operated at Old Indiana . It's also interesting to think Premier parks was planning to reopen the park as a "Heartland Festival Entertainment Complex" in 1999 but six flags has since sold the property.
I'm also fascinated with the history of Pacific Ocean Park (Not Santa Monica Pier). It's where my mom had her first date circa 1967. I've found a lot of information on wikipedia and a few other enthusiast websites detailing many of the rides & history but if anyone has any additional information that would be awesome to take a look at with my Mom. Thanks for getting through my post!
