Marriott's GREAT AMERICA photo and video albums

Marriott's GREAT AMERICA preview center music

This includes the ultra-rare music from the Marriott's GREAT AMERICA Preview Center as well as artist's renderings of early park concepts. Originally, I did not know where this music was used. Former Marriott's GREAT AMERICA Public Relations Manager John Poimiroo identified the music as being from the Preview Center. He explained that the Preview Center was a mobile exhibit that was set up in shopping malls prior to the opening of Marriott's GREAT AMERICA to publicize the park and generate interest.

While this is the original music used with the Preview Center, this is not an actual video shown at the Preview Center. To go with the music, I added the video portion consisting of the lyrics and a slide show of selected early park concept art. The idea was to give a sense of how the Marriott's GREAT AMERICA parks were envisioned before they actually opened. I would love to see the actual presentations that were shown at the Preview Center. I hope that they still survive somewhere. For now at least we can enjoy the GREAT original music from the Preview Center.
