Wow, Kings Island sure has grown up. Any idea what that coaster is to the left of International Drive?

The Bavarian Beetle.  It was a typical figure-8 galaxy coaster.

If you mean the one in Oktoberfest area it is the old Wild Mouse coaster. Hopefully PKI will see one of those again soon.

I had thought about a site like this - that's why I started "collecting" (amassing) park maps.  Where's a really high-quality color printer when you need one?

wow, this site is cool. I have a Walt Disney map from the early 70's and a Six Flags St. Louis map from 1978, plus brochures from the early 70's. Have to tear apart my parent's house next time I'm home. I'd like to contribute them.

I never knew that that building on Kings Island Drive used to be the College Football Hall of Fame!  I always wondered what it was.  So, anyone know what it is now?

I can't believe they had the Old Elitches on there, but Zimm, it wasn't SIX FLAGS Elitch Gardens on that map, it was just Elitch Gardens then. But good job on the site.

Look at SFOT, It has changed big time. The brochuers for the park are for 1986 and 2001. In 86' there big new ride was The Avalnche Boblsled at a height of 70 ft.

Then look at the this year's and Titan at a height of 260ft. That park has really changed.  I love that park, I have grown up going to that park. It is my home park.

I've been incredibly happy with one of these. It's not a color laser, but it's not as expensive either...

Kinda skimpy on the maps at the moment. I'm sure that will change in time. Still looking for a map from the old Opryland in Nashville. That was my first experience at a theme park and rollercoasters.

Thanks Denvers-coasters for the Elitch Gardens info.  I went ahead and fixed it on the site. 

Arrow Guy - As far as the Great America's, I'm not sure if you mean Six Flags GA or Paramount's GA.  I don't have anything from PGA, but SF Great America I have only 1 from the 70's but more from the 80's and 90's:  1979, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1997.  If you would like I can make the 1979 brochure "Brochure of the Week" the week after next. 

Thrillman - I don't have a lot of maps up yet, but I add at least one each week so check back for more.
