Re: If you could bring it back...

Santa Clara Sky Whirl Triple Play Whizzer (Wanted to ride it) Tidal Wave Rue Le Dodge (Original driving style) You guys in Gurnee are lucky. You still have more of the original Marriott rides to this day (3 of them are listed above). The only Marriott ride that the Santa Clara park has that the Gurn...

I wouldn't be so sure. We're about half way into the 2010 season and the only good that Invertigo has been, is being nothing but CGA's gigantic yellow/blue Lawn Ornament. Just like with Six Flags Great America's Deja Vu. Seriously, I work at CGA this season at Firefall and Flying Eagles and my co-wo...

Re: Beverly Hills Cop 3

I know that this is a really old topic but, I just want to say this: I think this movie had a negative impact on the Sky Whirl/Triple Wheel. I don't mean to sound rude or anything but, it's like a message to the Santa Clara park visitors who saw this movie saying "Stay off of this ride, or this will...

Ride Footage

I have a suggestion for what the website should have.

How about having videos of the rides when they're in operations (from beginning to end). Like with Survivor the Ride.

Re: Sky Whirl cabins

That would be more of a resurrection than a tribute. It'll be great to have a brand new Sky Whirl, it's just the matter of where to put it. But then again, seeing how the Santa Clara park is right now, I seriously doubt that Cedar Fair's gonna build a new Sky Whirl. I know that it's gonna be off sub...

Re: Sky Whirl cabins

There could be a possibility that they'll take one of the cabins back and display it. Besides, I read on a different post mentioning that Cedar Point puts a "tombstone" for rides that're gone at it's original site. That's where my suggestion sparked. If Cedar Fair does that at Cedar Point, then why ...

Re: Rue Le Dodge Sucks!

If you guys are wondering what Rue Le Dodge is like, then this video I found on YouTube should fill you in: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR3ogRIlplQ This is taken from the 2009 season, and it's not my video. And another thing, I didn't work at Marriott's Great America at all. In fact, I wasn't eve...

Suggestion

The about-to-be-scrapped cabins were offered free to anyone who would pick them up. I was the only one who took advantage of the kind offer. I went for two and ended up with three. I don't want to give away too much more of the story now because I still plan to follow through with that article abou...

Reason for Gurnee's Sky Whirl's Tear Down

The replacement of Sky Whirl at both parks was one of the worst decisions ever made! Sky Whirl was an icon of the park, as much a symbol as the Columbia Carousel. I bemoan its loss and wish it was still there. Thankfully this site has a wonderful photo gallery and I can always go back and relive th...
