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.
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.
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.
