Re: IT"S GONE! WHAT IS NEXT?

My Vote would be to put Chang in County Fair. Splashwater falls is already gone (no loss there). The Great America raceway has a lousy track layout are really could be easily reconfiquired in the same spot or maybe even somewhere else. To get the additional space needed for Chang. I would rip out th...

I never said anything about the size or height of the coaster I just think that a coaster of some type may be planned there. Someone else on this site mentioned this as well. If you look at this area from above you will see that the shywhirl land and Splashwater fall land almost directly line up wit...

The Heritage Theater was an odd shape, so I wondering what they where thinking there. Also theater Royale was called "Childrens Theater" and the Grand music Hall...

Nice photo Rick. I like seeing the backstage photos. This one brings back some memories. Almost of us that worked at GA had to pass through here every day, even the non costumed employees.
