Re: Gurnee's Sky Trek Tower in the process of new paintjob

Was there Sunday for FF. While I'm glad it was running & received some attention, I can't shake the feeling I get when I see SF plaster their name all over attractions. Same for the highway sign. Looks great but they seem hellbent on minimizing any reference to the park's individuality. I'm sure the...

I still think Eagle is one of the more impressive wood coasters in the country. I always looked forward to seeing the helix as we approached from 94 south (a view that was ruined a bit by Bull lol). I also love the night rides, although we usually hit Demon and Bull once it's dark. I really miss the...

If only we'd see the eyes return to the entrance, flames on the trains, etc. But hey SF has already done more than I expected. Kudos to ...

2 .Sky Whirl
3. Delta Flyer/Eagles Flight
4. Southern Cross
5. Shockwave (but only if they fixed dead man's curve LOL)

missedthemarriotera, Demon has always been in the same spot since the park opened, but wasn't called Demon until 1980 (when the first 2 loops and theming were added). There was another coaster in Iron Wolf's spot called Z Force. It opened in 1985 and was relocated after the 87 season. There should b...

Gumball, here's a thread that might answer your question (I think there are more photos in the gallery from filming).

Tidal Wave & Sky Whirl. With Deja Vu finally gone at Gurnee, I really wish SF would lay off the coasters for a bit and get a few more family rides. Like Steven mentioned in another thread, the triple wheels should have hung on longer. For the right price, SF could have a new one. They just have to r...

That's a great idea! Cedar Point does a tombstone for its former rides and managers. It's a nice touch, and always fun to listen to comments from people that remember Jumbo Jet, Rotor, etc.

Question is, would TOTC get one? :D

I'd be surprised to see a shuttle like that brought back to a big park. If the pens belonging to the people responsible for the "ornament" had run out of ink during the yes we'll build this meeting, CF would've had a case for returning a looping shuttle to the park. Now that V2 is there, the launch ...

Wow, what a thread. It's great to see that people actually have this stuff! Being the Tidal Wave and Demon guy that I am, I occasionally look for items. A couple years back I watched a Tidal Wave patch go for $75 or something like that. I just couldn't stay in the running after it topped $50. Today ...

Yes! I'm glad they are restoring the original name. out here it's nice to have simply "Geauga Lake" again.
