I wish I could get my hands on at least one of those books.

redfishpaw: When I looked at your earlier park book I noticed one picture towards the end had a copyright date of 1978 at the bottom.

Opening day was great besides the weather. I thought the Justice League thing and the show was cool. I was looking for any references to the parks 30th anniversary but couldnt find any. The only thing that came close was the train operating mentioning it was the parks 30th. Im also disappointed that...

I liked the piece for what it was. I wish the segment was longer and focused on the history. I would have also liked to see some more older footage. It was cool seeing some behind the scenes footage. Im surprised the park still has old things like the Fort Fun sign. Its pretty cool that the same guy...

I saw the new sign yesterday and I dont like it. This sign is just too plain and the colors dont look right. Even though I didnt like the name I think the Ice Mountain (Natural Spring Water) Splash sign looked better. The old entrance cant come back unless V2 is removed.

Good news. I wish the old sign returned too but I guess that doesnt matter too much since the name is back.

As long as I had money and a place to store the cabins I would do everything necessary to get the cabins home.

If I had the money I would like to buy the cabins. The only problem is storage and I don't feel like renting a shed.

This is sad news. It seems like PGA is trying to get rid of all the Marriott rides. What just happened to County Fair happened at SFGAm 2 years ago. Part of Orleans Place was renamed Mardi Gras which I didn't like and still don't. With PGA renaming part of County Fair Action Zone is ridiculous. Not ...

I like first generation free falls but they aren't popular anymore. Still I think these parks should keep the old free falls and add a bigger one. This way younger kids can work their way up. Cedar Point's Demon Drop was put up for sale last year http://www.italintl.com/detail_page.php?record_id=565...

I hope the rest of AE gets retracked. It seems pointless to do different parts year after year.
