The Loggers Run at the Gurnee Park is still it's original layout. But the Santa Clara Loggers Run layout got totatally changed except the top part & drop to make room for Stealth & now Boomerang Bay. I sure miss the landscape. It was so much nicer in the 90s.

I never went on it either. :( It looks like it was a fun ride. It makes me so sad it's gone & even sadder looking at that Tidal Wave loop which I miss the most! You're right Yankee Clipper's last season was 1998 & so was Tidal Wave's. Starting w/the 1999 season it was renamed Greased Lightnin. Then ...

I need everyone to leave a message here so we can work on getting SC back to the way it originally was. Then I will email all your posts to the CGA manager. Just write something like bring back all our missed rides & a detailed description. I am serious about this. This could work.

Anything Great America Parks Members Can Do?

Reading about how the park was in SC & how we lost so many great rides makes me feel more & more & more depressed. It's no longer the great park it once was. Paramount totatally ruined it. They removed the rides we miss w/out any good reason at all. I was thinking there can be something done. We mem...

The Edge's last season at SC was 1995. Drop Zone took it's place in 1996. I was real lucky to get on the Edge once during it's last season due to my uncle getting me & my cousin to go on it. I have to thank him because after that ride on the Edge now I go on any drop ride. :D

I used to be able to handle spinning rides but now almost all spinning rides make me sick. I felt sick after I rode the Triple Play at Santa Clara. A combination of Survivor,Sponge Bob Boat Mobiles,& the Beserker made me feel sick. I used to go on Delerium,Centrifuge,& Endavor. I can't even go on th...

At least it isn't Loggers Run or Yankee Clipper! Be thankful you still have those two! Has the Gurnee Loggers Run changed its layout like the one at CGA?

I would have to go with Gurnee even though I've never been there because Gurnee has kept a lot of their original rides like the Whizzer,Lobster,& most especially Yankee Clipper. I hope to go to the Gurnee one someday to ride the Clipper again. I sure miss those rides at CGA.
