Does anyone have copies of the spiels used on all of the rides during the Marriott's days at the Gurnee park?

If you are referring to the spoken safety spiels that were repeated over and over, I may have a copy of the one from The Edge. I know I have a "blooper" tape made while we were in the recording studio, and the techs running the board started screwing around with the electronics, adding echo and other effects to my voice. :o

Yea, those safety messages played over the PA that said something like:

"Welcome to the Demon. Please pull down your harness as far as it will go. While riding the demon, please hold on to all loose articles..."

If you can, please post the Edge spiel.

Well, I never worked for Rides, but I remember the Theatre Attendant spiel for Theatre Royale:

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls:
Welcome to Marriott's Great America and this presentation of "Its a Magic World". For your safety and the convenience of others, we ask that you refrain from using flash photography. If you need to leave the theatre for any reason during the performance, please use on of our side exits where a host or hostess will be happy to assist you. Thank you and ENJOY THE SHOW!

I can't believe I still remember that crap without hesitation! :oops: :D
