Currently at PGA, the lower portion of the tidal wave station is still visible. It is now painted a dark white color. You can see it if you stand next to the action theater, and peer through the trees where the sidewalk leading to the ride entrance was (the sidewalk is gone and dirt is now there, pl...

m11stephen2, thanks I did view those pics, so depressing. And Steven, you always have the pics I wish I had! I wish I knew about the anniversary because I would have gone or been involved if possible. By the way, I saw a couple pics of that anniversary celebration, did you happen to have any more pi...

santa clara tidal wave

Does anyone here have any pics (or know of some links) of the santa clara tidal wave in the final years (when it became greased lightnin).... I'm talking about the que line, the outside of the station, or the path next to the action theater that lead to the entrance? Thanks kids!

I get the two stations mixed up sometimes, PGA doesn't mention the areas now (except for a few orleans place spots), but now we're all clear thanks Steven!

Hey PGA Rocks, I was curious about the same thing, I couldn't get what the voice says after "survive". I'm glad PGA hasn't removed the ride.

Redfishpaw, you asked earlier about the santa clara edge site. For several years after it was taken out, it was a rock climbing wall (mostly kids climbed it). I went to the park last week, and the old hometown train station has been converted into a ride called "psycho mouse". The area where the edg...

I visited PGA today, and they were running 2 trains on the Demon. I looked at the cars carefully, and I would say that they were original to the demon. They looked worn out, with the original demon logo on the front, and with the yellow/orange paint on the sides.

Thanks to all for the info so far. Whereabouts are the concrete footings that remain still at the park? Anywhere around whitewater falls?

Does anyone know why the santa clara whizzer was removed, what happened to it, or have any photos of the disassembled ride to share? Thanks!

Santa Clara Triple Wheel

Does anyone havepics of the triple wheel/sky whril at the santa clara parks in the later years, i.e. the 90's. The pics I've seen on here are from the early years, plus that one photo of the empty spot before invertigo was built. Thanks for any pics!

I worked 4th of july only a few years ago at PGA, and I can tell you that it's absolutely insane. The crowds of people go into the park constantly all day. It's a day I recommend to people not to go to the park except to see the fireworks. I had to drive a company vehicle through the main parking lo...
