No sound here but still pretty neat. Shows the kiddie rides, views from the skyride, and barney o. Enjoy.

Neat find, but this has to be from 1980 -- the first two loops are there on the Demon but the American Eagle is not.

Also -- I had (and probably still have) the yellow Taz shirt the boy near the end is wearing.

VERY COOL!!!!!!!! Was the skyride Southern Cross? That's a view I've never seen, since I never went on that ride.

LOVE this.

The skyride footage is of Delta Flyer / Eagle's Flight. Southern Cross towers are seen, but it's not running.
