Question about SFGAM

Monday, April 28, 2003 10:07 AM
I was just wondering if anybody knew what are the only remaining rides left over from when the park opened in 1976?

The only ones I can think of are:
Whizzer
Carousal
Demon? (Turn of the Century)
Loggers run / Yankee clipper (or what ever they are called now)

Wasnt the Ricochett in Southwest one of the original's also known as Big Top? I dont remember if that was an original ride or if that was added when the Eagle was added...

Bob, yes it was originally called Big Top and was located where Dare Devil Dive is now. I am not sure when this ride was first installed though. I dont think it was 1976.

Cheetos, I dont believe Ameri-Go-Round came to the park in '76'. Can anyone confirm this?

According to the National Carousel Association, Ameri-Go-Round opened with the park in 1976.

Big Top opened in 1977, along with Sky Trek Tower, Haybaler, and couple others.
