Wow...that was kinda...sad...and weird. It's like they just took it out of it's own misery. Would it have been too problematic to dismantle it and relocate it?

Sorry to bump a topic, but I totally remember the Smurf area and the Blue Streak. I always loved running in and out of the mushroom houses. By the way, I saw a remnant of the lost Smurf woods. In Santa Clara's Great America picnic area, where the playground is, there's a mushroom house. As soon as I...

Let's see...Well, I've actually had the Columbia's music stuck in my head all day today after visiting Santa Clara's GA yesterday. I definitely recall Triple Wheel's ongoing high pitched noise you can hear across the park, the ufo/humming sound of Orbit, the high pitched sound of Berserker/Yukon yah...

How do I set up the album? I've actually wanted to get one started as I have some (recent) pictures to share of SC's Great America in it's current state.

Tidal Wave at MGA

Having missed the Tidal Wave at Great America (Santa Clara) I was messing with No Limits last week and threw together the classic shuttle loop coaster. I'm no good at 3ds's so please don't request it. (If I did know it, I would have done a lot more including the beachfront queue and wave wall along ...

I hope that it will be as crazy as possible. I don't want it to be super weak like the time I rode the one at Discovery Kingdom (when it was still Marine World). I remember when VooDoo used to flip like 6 times per cycle...but that wasn't enough. Sadly, it dropped down to 2.4 flips. In a way, I hop...

New for '08 at Great America (Santa Clara)

Yes, I know this is mainly a Great America history site but I think of this as an unofficial fansite covering both Great America parks as well. Anyway, someone over at Theme Park Review posted a pic a new thrill ride (teaser) for 2008 on a flyer they recieved in the mail. I don't really want to make...

Ok, so I'm a new poster here but I've been visiting GA (California) quite a few times this summer and have gotten around to most of the rides. I'm only like 25 minutes from GA so obviously it's my home park. So now, I've introduced myself. I've been visiting GA since I was little (First visit was ac...
