I have been wondering if red brush was still open. I went as a kid. Was some of the best times i had was riding the ski lift over lake, setting up tent, fishing, swimming. Riding bumper cars and skating at night. The petting zoo, frisbi golf. The food arcades, paddle boats. The sand the slide on beach. The cloggers. The mirror that made you look funny. I would give anything to go back with my boys take them fishing. Id like them to experience Jumping off diving board, the swing. The kids area that was in the water. The best summer memories of my childhood. If anyone knows any info on redbrush please let me know
The guys who own and built the Schlitterbahn water parks are the brains behind many slides in use at various water parks to this day. I believe even certain ones at Kings Island (I'm fairly certain my fave, the giant funnel looking one, is one of their creations), are their creations.
There was a reality show following them as they were attempting to build the tallest raft drop. The show ended before they ever got it to work. Allegedly they ended up opening it without ever perfecting its problems and the then Kansas State Representative, Scott Schwab's, 16 year old son got decapitated on the ride.
