Jeez they went overboard with those skeletons. I have never been to the park while it is dark, it looks cool. Also, where was that "New Attraction Coming soon" sign located? Was it near an existing ride?

Excellent photos, I especially like the first two, the carousel and of the tower. I also was wondering where the ''new attraction'' sign is located.

Thanks for the recent pictures from Santa Clara, Steven. I especially liked the one of Columbia with the skeletons in the reflecting pond. You have an obvious affection for GA out west! I'll admit that their colors are bright and always cheery. Hope you are feeling better.

The new attraction sign is next to Berzerker (Yukon Yahoo) which was moved to County Fair.

That's wierd. I visited PGA on October 29, but Steven visited on the 30th. Wouldn't that be wierd if I met Steven in person and I didn't even know it? :shock:

Steven, you're lucky. You got to visit the park when the time change occured. That meant you got to visit when it was dark at six. :(

The sign is between the entrance to the Demon and the Beserker (barely seen on far right above), which was formerly the Yukon Yahoo.
