Pics of SFGAM in 1989

Post by NikkiJ8605 » Fri Nov 25, 2005 11:17 am

Okay, I'm ready to post the pics from 1989. There are some kiddie area ones (I know someone was asking about Bugs Bunny Land, which I think this is) Even if it isn't, I want to share these with you! Enjoy! :D

Thanks for posting them, I always forget that Rolling Thunder was ever at Great America.

Great pics, brings back memories as '89 was my first year in rides. I may have even been running Rapids that day, depends on what month.

Yes, it was Bugs Bunny Land at that point, or BBL to staff or BBHell if you were a ride op working there. BBL became a "Siberia" of sorts for ride ops who had gone astray and were being punished (hence the origination of BBHell I believe).
