But that place was kind of a dump.;)
Adventure City is NO dump, either.
Also SFNO isn't officially dead. Mayor Nagin has the contractual option of forcing them to reopen. It's certainly unlikely, but it's an option nonetheless.
It sure does suck to see the Pavillion there, with a bunch of dumps like that. Such wasted potential. *** Edited 11/12/2006 6:21:19 PM UTC by Vincent Greene***

The saddest loss in 2006 had to be the Texas Cyclone. Once regarded as one of the best coasters around, it couldn't be relocated because of code restrictions. The ride had inadequate clearances which presented potential safety hazards if bigger riders stuck their arms out too far. On a brighter note, several of SFAWs other coasters did find new homes or will in the future.

Also, Gun Town Mountain closed in Kentucky this year.
..and I thought there was a second Jersey shore pier/park that was closing... :-/
