    This looks quite odd.

    This is kind of fun to see.

    Sky Ride. Enchanted Voyage. Yes, yes, yes, Mr. Roberts. Also, Tilt-O-Whirl in red, please. Antique Autos is a start.

    2019 International Street Renovation

    You're right, Mr. Roberts. If there is any way someone can do damage to themselves, they will find it. I don't like pavers in general; a completely smooth surface is much easier for people who either cannot walk or have difficulty walking to use. And easier for we older folks too. I guess pavers meet ADA requirements but I wish they would not replace one kind of broken surface with another. As far as people wearing heels in an amusement park - I have seen people in full dress-up mode there many times and it always astounds me. Why? It's 90 degrees and they're in Sunday-go-to-meetin' clothes. It has to be miserable, to say the least. And then see them there on cold rainy days/nights in shorts, tee shirts and flip flops. What are they thinking? However, Imperial79, it is good they're restoring what was and hopefully they will bring back old favorite rides as well. Just don't think that is very likely. Too many people looking for the next biggest thrill.

    My favorite thing in both these shots is the sky.

    This is so long overdue. Hope the new pavers will make it easier for people who use wheelchairs to traverse. All the improvements will be worthwhile, I'm sure.

    Right on both counts, Mr. Roberts. Still think Vortex might be next to go.

    Glad to see it go.

    Well, that's overdue for sure. Maybe they'll get to the red next.

    I have to say this looks odd to have equipment resting on the roof.

    Didn't wanna ride it before, don't wanna ride it now.

    This looks bizarre.

    Still think they should fill the space with flat rides....but not likely.

    Not shedding any tears over this one.
  16. Good one, Mr. Roberts. Needed a laugh to start my day.

    Do not understand how anyone could think those two rides are alike. One stays on its base, the other spins in the air. No comparison to me. This is an amazing video, Mr. Roberts. It sure seems like at one point that you're going to launch right out into space. Dizzying to watch in the early am.

    Hmm. Did not even think about a giga coaster. Still think they need more flat rides. They do need something back in that area though. It always feels out of place somehow, disconnected. And you're right, Mr. Roberts. The line for whatever will leave will be very long.

    I heard about the display, Mr. Roberts. All good guesses. I'm thinking Adventure or Firehawk as well. But any of these are viable options. Just wondering what they have in mind for replacement.
  20. Oh ho, there's your Zipper, Mr. Roberts.
  21. Didn't hear about that, Mr. Roberts. I know you liked that ride.
  22. This seems like a good choice. Not at all surprised they chose another company after the accident last year, from which a second young person has now passed away, sadly.

    Wonder if it will be finished before winter sets in. Looks like they're making good progress.

    Oh, very nice, Mr. Roberts. Thanks for posting. Hard to believe it's been gone since 1993. Doesn't seem that long.
