Though I don't remember any pics of the Edge, you may be able to see it in one of the following links. I apologize if it's not there....I have early shots of the park from the tower. I do have brochures at home with it in. It was brown and orange with silver cars. www.angelfire.com/oh4/tk173/tidalwave.html www.angelfire.com/oh4/tk173/whizzer.html www.angelfire.com/oh4/tk173/demon.html

Here are few of the Older pics I have from SFGAm. I dont think that any of them are from when it was Marriots though but I do have some shots of preconstruction of Batman the Ride. http://www.angelfire.com/rant/coasters/images/sfgam/
(constuction01 folder has pics of 2001 construction).

I finally got to see the Turn of the Century! I think it looks better than Demon.

You are probably thinking that because you never saw Turn Of The Century before. All it was is something like Corkscrew at CP. It wasnt anything to write home about. Demon is a big improvement.

I have a picture of the Edge. Actually, it was not sold to an amusement park in Rhode Island after it crashed at Great America, but the ride was unchanged, so it still looks the same in this pic. http://members.aol.com/rides911/edge01.jpg

I like in the Turn of the Century/Demon pic, seeing the old Wipeout style ride that was replaced by the Orbit later on. The park looked so different back then.
