I remember that Top Gun ride! When you fired and "hit" another fighter, their ride arm would lower itself to the position it was in when the ride started. I believe that the winner from each ride cycle (the last fighter left standing) was allowed to ride again.
I was missing a few brochures from the late 80's and early 90's but thanks to eddie200330 here they are! I was beginning to think that Season 4 was going to be the last season of Shane's Amusement Attic but eddie200330 sent me a box full of goodness and that should be enough to keep us going for another season or two. So a big shout out to Eddie!
This is the year that Dorney steps into the big leagues with the addition of the World's Tallest Wooden Coaster. Of course this started a big lawsuit with Six Flags over Texas who also opened the World's Largest Wooden Coaster the same year. So who actually won the title???? The world may never know.
Can you believe a park actually had the Care Bears as mascots???
A prettye big addition for a smaller park
1991 - "I'm sorry we don't have Coke, is Pepsi ok?"
From top to bottom it was a great drop...but the rest of the ride sucked!

Nope- it was a Zamperla TeleCombat ride.
I miss the Flying Dutchman, Journey to the Center of Earth, The bumper cars that was right next to the Coaster (now known as Thunderhawk, the coaster went under the bumper cars on the way to the lift hill ), Iceberg/Metorite, and the Rockets.
Happy to be of service Shane, I enjoy seeing all the "good" stuff from back in the day and I would like others that have any older stuff that isn't on here to do the same so we can all see what parks were like years ago. It really makes it worthwhile to see the parks you never got a chance to visit and maybe never will.
Life is a lemon and I want my money back????
He who farts in church sits in own pew.............
Six Flags has been involved with several crazy side projects in their history. There was Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park, Auto World in Detroit, Funtricity in Mississippi and we can't forget to mention the most crazy..."Coaster Cuts". Along they way they picked up "Atlantis" water park. This was their first run with water parks. Well the park is no longer around. I seem to recall that not only did it have financial problems but it was somewhat destroyed in a storm that blew through Florida (if someone has more detail please feel free to chime in). Here are a couple of brochures from the park back when it was alive and kicking.
