Ok, I found this on RetroJunk... and man, this is really going retro.

Their newest ride apparently looks like this super awesome drop tower (aka: Intamin first-gen drop). Instead of Loony Tunes, they have Pac-Man as their mascots.

The video can be found HERE:

Talk about the "good ol days"... hmm... do you yern for Bugs, or Pac-Man & company?

Neat site. I will have to browse it a little more when I get time.

Haha, look at the comments under the video. Apparently SFMW is one of the best amusement parks in the world.

Heres one from MM in the 70s

The kiddie coaster she's riding in the MM commercial was removed from the park for a few years before resurfacing as Goliath Jr. And that's how I got my Goliath Jr. credit ;)

I don't remember that Great Adventure commercial but I do remember an old science show on PBS called 3,2,1 Contact that featured Stuntman's Freefall.

I do remember the commercial for Ultra Twister where it showed a kid being sucked backwards and spinning.

Moosh, the years of Pac Man was the "good" Six Flags.

Magic Mountain... it's a Scream. A little foreshadowing, anyone?

To a time when guests are pulling their hair out in frustration instead of having fun...yes ;)

Haha did anyone else find it kinda strange that the little girl in the MM video was just chillin' in the lion pit with a lion at the end of the video. Sorry that just struck me as funny.

P.S.---When did they have a zoo there??? *** Edited 11/17/2006 12:10:31 AM UTC by Hamster Boy***

Except for that really bad song "Pac-Man Fever." That totally sucked... plus it started a trend of songs based on video arcade games.
