It seems that everyone would loved to have the Riverview park saved. I have heard that the BOB's coaster was a great coaster.

I would bring back Palisades Park because of the many fantastic rides it once had. But then again with Great Adventure, there would be high competition for guests. Even though competition is never a bad thing, Palisades Park could not keep up with Premier-owned park, Great Adventure.

RIVERVIEW definitly. I also have read Riverview: Gone but not forgotten. That placed looked so great. Aladin's palace, 11 coasters, including the Bobs, Ribbions (virgina reel) and Flash (the strangest cars i've ever seen). Then there is Par-o-chutes and the great collection of flat rides they had there. The amazing amount of people who have replied riverview just strengthens my argument that SFGAm should reconstruct the Bobs.

If you want more history on riverview if you live in chicago i recomend you go down to the historical society (right nelson?) and check out some of the information there, they have a lot. If you don't just check out the book i mentioned above.

Does the 1928 Coney Island Boardwalk count as a park?

I would bring back Opryland in Nashville. That park was so fun, and had some pretty cool coasters.

I would love to have Boardwalk and Baseball back in Florida. It was a great park that had a bad location. Too out of the way from the theme park for most people. A better location would have made the park more successful. I had a lot of great times there.

BERTRANDS ISLAND in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey and their "Nickel Night" too!!! They had a great wooden coaster...small but kick-a**, and a sickeningly wonderful ride called the Boomerang.

Way back at the beginning of this thread, supermandl asked why Boblo Island closed. Well, if you're really interested, check out
http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/~ak621/CEC/ClosPark.html for more info on the history of Boblo than you shake a stick at. *** This post was edited by spewey on 2/5/2001. ***
