OK...I knew WHAT it was, but I didn't know WHERE it was...now I know the answer (yes there is trivia about the park I don't know!) ;)

 

I won't spoil it so everyone else can figure it out :D

I was thinking the top of an old pay phone, but later for that.

Trying to determine if those are hydraulic hoses or electrical lines, then I might be able to figure it out.

I thought of that too, but they wouldn't fit in with the purpose no longer needed clue.

 

 

How many cars are on the Giant Wheel? I was also thinking some kind of fixture on the cars, but again, that wouldn't fit into the no longer needed clue.

^ They would work, the old gas engines were replaced with different ones.

Things to provide power for the lights that used to be on all of the cars?

That's right !!! Congratulations! You guys are good !!!

 

It is a picture of the electronic brush contacts that provided electric to the lights built into the cars of the Giant Wheel. The in-car lights were non-functional by the early 80s but the brush assemblies weren't removed until the wheel was completely dismantled for a major rehab during the winter of 1992-1993.

Question #5

 

Which of the following two statements is true? The main fireworks dock on the Great Lake is .....

1. ... in a fixed position. It was constructed on pilings and does not move.

2. ... a floating dock securely moored in place. It can be moved next to a small stationary dock on the far side of the lake for repairs.

 

Everyone has a 50/50 chance with this one - Fixed or Floating?

Mystery Photo #6

 

I think this is a hard one. My hat's off to you if you can get it!

 

Hint:

- The item in this picture served two unrelated purposes during its time at the park.

- It was removed within the last five years.

- It seems like a "back stage" type shot, but anyone could have taken it from this angle.

 

Good Luck !

Hmm...I have two thoughts. If the first one is wrong, I'm going with the second.

 

I think it's the balloon from one of the Main Street shops (I forgot the name)

 

My second guess is the little Apollo like Space Craft outside of Shuttle and Centrifuge
