With tens of thousands of pictures, getting it down to about 225 was one of the hardest parts of writing the book! We had so much we wanted to include but a limited number of pages to do it. Although we weren't able to use your great shot of the Super Sidewinder, the ride did make the cut. It is in a photo that also includes the "Lil Thunder" roller coaster.

Does anyone remember this park entrance from 1974 and 1975?

 

For some reason I recall vividly lining up on my very first and going through it in 1974, keeping to the left, and then heading down the incline and wrappinig around past the Bandstand on the Lake to hit the Log Flume first.

 

For years later, before I was really into the park and could figure some things out, I always wondered how we managed to get through the gate and get to the Log Flume so quickly. At the point, I hadn't realized they relocated the entrance!

I was confused for several years. I remember the first time going to the park entering down by the fort and tents. I thought maybe we had entered through the employee entrance or something, like my dad snuck us in because he knew someone. It was many years before I found out the entrance had been moved.

They keep telling us August 31st, but I've seen August 26th listed as well. In this case the book won't have a "strict on-sale date", so it can be released as soon as it is received by the bookstore/website/etc. It will all depend on how fast the books are printed and shipped.

Looking forward to this! Barnes and Noble know's I'm coming for it too, I think I scared them last week when I mistakenly thought the book was already out.
