I forgot about rides turnstiles. I never worked with those. I was talking about total park attendence. It was just so primitive.

Attendence

I take it that the attendence counts must all be computerized now. Back in the old days....when I was an auditor... it was our job to take hourly attendence. I thought it an old-fashioned way of doing it then. All the turnstiles were connected to counters in the audit office. Every hour you wrote do...

Great story! Seems that Santa Clara has had it's share of excitement. I remember someone waving a gun around in the main gate area. They had all of us lying on the floors of the buildings. It happened another time after I left for the night. Seemed there was knife fights as well. Of course this was ...

I remember there being a huge aerial photo mural on one of the conference room walls at Santa Clara.

Andy, I found a photo online of the Sky Glider at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Have you seen it before? I think you will like it.

Redfish, I like that photo. Having the ride over coasters makes it more exciting.

Dunno.... I thought it had a familiar feel to it when I saw it. Certainly different from anything else I remember.

Trusty map never fails... There was a Northwest Shooting Gallery in Yukon. Just over the bridge from Yankee Harbor. I remember it now! There was a Skeedaddle in County Fair and another skeeball called Cirque Electrique Arcade in Orleans Place. One of my favorites was the County Fair Boats. Those lit...

If they were giving them away I wish I had known. I would have sent my Dad over there with a crew to grab whatever they could have.

Steven, next time this happens, ya gotta let me know!

I was racking my brain trying to remember if I saw any in SC. I can picture the one at Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the one in Disneyland, but don't recall one at Great America.

:lol: There's a plan! I love it! It seems we all have at least some knowledge and a lot of opinions. Have you ever thought about running a park (big, small, tiny, doesn't matter). I always thought it would be neat to start a mystery shopper type business for amusement parks. I suppose you could just...

I watched or listened to everything on that page when I first saw it. I can't open or save any of it now. My husband may have messed with the settings on the computer (sounds like something he would do :roll: )
