Waukegan was my old hihg school too graduated in 2007. Interesting to see this video though I havnt seen this clip in so long. Heres a side note, a rather sad one. In the beginning of the trailer there is a kid sitting with a bandanna looking bored in class with his head on his hand. He used to be m...

The only resonable reason to where they might put the coaster is where the bumper cars is located or Theatre Royale is.

Also, i hope they have a mix of an Orleans look to the construciton like they did to the entrance of S:UF because if they dont then Orleans place will be losing much of its look.

I loved the Power dive! The line was always short by the time I got to ride it! It was sooo much fun. Going upside. I love King Chaos too but that has nothing on powerdive! I remember when the shoulder restraints would come down i would lift my hands up so it wouldnt squeeze my chest so hard. But fo...

Honestly I do not like the idea of Wiggles. They couldve done something better than Wiggles. Its good for the kids but they couldve brought something else for the kids. The Eagle's tent did need something to be done to it but not wiggles. Plus Wiggles is disney not Bugs Bunny!

I wasnt alive for the MGA days :( But i remember when I was little hearing the clicking of the Shockwave. That was the first ride I heard when I entered the park and just pumped me up.

Main Entrace pictures?

Does anyone have any new pictures of the main entrance of the MGA days? I was thinking about the current entrance to SFGAm and notice how they have american colors on the buildings. I was thinking that looks pretty tacky and wanted to see if it looks better from the orignal days or now. Thanks!

Yeah I agree with Rayzak about the movie thing. Back in the 70's through 80's, scary movies were mostly about murderers on the loose. Now its spirits trapped inside a house. Same thing with the Demon. Think about it back then upside down roller coasters were just being introduced. Demon was the firs...
