WANTED: Photos & Videos of defunct rides!

Post by jonrev » Fri Apr 04, 2008 4:38 pm

Sometime in the coming months I am planning on making a video of all the defunct rides at Great America. If anyone here has footage or photos of the following rides please PM me or email me with them. You will receive credit in the final video for any submissions. Photos or videos can be of anything about the ride from construction, operation, or removal.

I have ShockWave, Sky Whirl, DejaVu, Shuttle, Splash, Tidal Wave, and Z-Force taken care of. I need the following though:

Coasters
-Rolling Thunder
-Gulf Coaster

Flats
-Power Dive
-Cajun Cliffhanger
-TrailBlazer
-All SkyRides (DF/EF,S.ern Cross)
-Traffique Jam
-The Edge
-HayBaler
-Bottoms Up
-Davey Jones Dinghies
-Yukon Yahoo
-Spinnaker
-Hilltopper
-Ameri-Go-Round

Any contributions are greatly appreciated. Also if Steven is reading this, would it be alright if I used some of your photos here for some of the rides?

I have film of Power Dive. I will look at the tape tonight to see what else I have. We went up Sky Trek Tower in 95 and took footage from there. But on the ground, we watched Power Dive twirl around a few times.

I should've mentioned this earlier, but I am only interested in the Gurnee park only.
