Garfield Park

Any of you buzzers remember news about Garfield Park in Indiana? Well since my Dad's company did work for them he got the design for the park the layout the architecture the rides everything.

Well looking at them it was going to be a very well themed park. One of the concept arts showed the station of one of the coasters and it was themed to inside of a picnic basket very elaborate. I can not express how themed it was going to be. But it doesn't look like it was going to themed as much as Islands of Adventure. They had plans for 3 coasters one wooden, one double looping, and one kiddie. they had planned a log flume, chute the chutes, a mini model of the Indy 500 where you can race miniature indy cars and a ton more stuff. I just wish they could have gotten it up. But I think their downfall was being way too themed.

So if you have any questions about the park Ill look at it and try to answer. If you have any input about the park that I didnt mention please add.

Hendricks County I think! The people in charge couldn't come up with the 150 Million dollars to back the park! That's why it never flew! (Hendricks County is just west of Indianapolis)
