I dont know whats going on with the Revolution but its been closed all year. This is what happens when SFGAm picks up used run down flats. Im surprised that the Revolution has had so many problems. Huss makes good rides but I guess it wasnt taken care of at SFGAdv. Even though its a fun ride I think SF should have junked it instead of letting Tim Black bring it here.

Don't forget we still picked up rafts from Thunder River from Astroworld. They use different color rafts than Roaring Rapids does.

Both Scenic Railway trains are used, just not at the same time.

I don't get why we still have the powerdive in the parking lot? What they should do is fix it up and put it back in the park somewhere or scrap it. I would like them to put it back in the park because I never rode the powerdive.

Good luck getting Power Dive in at Gurnee. The ride is in shambles. Probably broken beyond repair now. Such a waste.

Power Dive's supports and other parts of it are partially broken off and would be really hard to repair and put it back together or impossible to.

Add more flats in County Fair is a definate! They need a ferris wheel too because it goes along with the whole "Fair" theme. Anyways, is it possible to get Power Dive back or is it pretty must done for? :?
