The OD Hopkins stuff probably is from the early 90's.

Awww bummer. I've always like the OD Hopkins mini rapids boats.

Anyway, Shane, thanks as always for more pamphlet goodness. Your poor scanner! Lol!

Ah yes, my first job...was a small park, even smaller than was off HWY 27 in Davenport,FL..I remeber the Hurricane, loved that ride, however we dropped the Florida part from it after it became Boardwalk and Baseball...and the Zoomerang was called the Double 'O'...Lots of good times... I still have a small piece of the boardwalk itself somewhere.

I never knew Sandor worked for Hopkins, or that Intamin had offices in Berkeley. I've really learned interesting stuff from your archives, Shane. That's too bad that Hopkins is gone already, but from pictures I've seen, their roller coasters were some odd looking contraptions.

OD Hopkins, the Seguay (sp?), and Adam Sandler....are all my state has contributed in 20 years. I apologize on behalf of NH.

Aside from there any way we can nominate Shane for TPR contributor of the year? (I swear the man has sold his soul to the devil for all the vintage scans.) Shane, you anything on La Ronde?

Well I don't know too much about this park, maybe our friends down under can shed some light and history about this park that is now gone.

I know it was designed and managed by KECO (the company that Paramount bought out) but the park always remained under a private owner, it never became part of the Paramount Parks.

It seems to have alot of similarities to Canada's Wonderland as far as the theme areas go. The Medieval Faire section of the park changes names several times to: Old Bounty Bay & International Plaza.

I am not sure what happened to the Intamin Drop Ride but the Boomerang was sold to Alabama Adventures

Great Stuff Shane.
Dream World always looked like a cool park. Its really cool how they combine the Intamin Freefall Tower and the reverse freefall coaster.
