Ah yes, my first job...was a small park, even smaller than Carowinds...it 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 that...is 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 RAWK...got anything on La Ronde?
