The trolley has also been removed. The train was really a good break during the afternoon, plus there are plenty of trees that the train passed under. But yeah I agree that 94 was still a great year to see the classic rides. Tidal wave too. Even the first half of the Logger's Run was changed, but luckily everything from the lift to the drop is original.

I was just at PGA 2 weeks ago, and Orleans Orbit was still there. It was, however, not operating the day I was at the park. No mention of this ride was on the park map either.
Santa Clara Great America is the best

With the sale of PGA, maybe there is still a chance for the Orbit to reopen...
