From the article:

Americana was the “great American amusement park” according to its own propaganda, but for many who spent summer days riding the Screechin’ Eagle and The Serpent, it wasn’t just great, it was the greatest.

Despite nearby roller coaster competition, Americana flourished for decades, delivering a dose of innocence in the form of family-friendly fun. Distinguished by its vibrant colors, classic rides and carnival feel, the park attracted millions during its nearly 80-year run, many of whom have waxed poetic on the park’s charm and its role in their youth.
