  1. Like this idea! Paint them to look like the Super Teepee
  2. I would ove to see Dream Street restored for the fountain to the tents. Banners replaced decorotive light posts. Some plantings in front of Tents. Bring it back to 1975-76 look.

    Photo Trip Report: Nov 28th, 2009 - Tavern on the Green

    When the park first opened there was a lot of cross referances to Tavern on the Green..And yes the first year the park was truly magical...Thats why some of old timers think GA today while good is nothing more then ....

    On the lake side youd catch the car open the door and there was a openiing right in front before the turnaound. Guest would exit thru and down the steps. Then push the car to the middle were it would be loaded and door locked the pushed to the release. No one crossed in front of loading. we didnt have the lower que area. Guest walked up the steps and used the switch backs in the fort. There was to be a antique car display ib the center court of the fort. It was mirrored on the dream streetside. Lakeside youd make a right and exit down the tower. And Dream Street youd make aleft and exit down the tower. And this emptied out into Rootin Tootin under the Mine Train Brake run. Right in front of the Log Flume lift hill area.

    As the car entered the station you'd catch it and unload the guest, push the car to the center and load new guests to Dream Street and then placed the car in dispatch, waited to clear the first tower and pulled the cord. Easy!
