Bugs Bunny Land Central Canopy Spotlight

Recommended Posts

I liked the canopy because I thought it looked cool to have the rides under it. The tree was a cool addition too.

It’s obvious that GA found a new superstructure vendor in the 80s.  They provided the new Bugs Bunny Land arch, the canopy cover, and were even suppose to provide the new arch in the planned but never built entrance plaza.

That arch would have been cool for the main entrance. Remember the park built that arch over the center fountain for a few years? I remember that the Bugs Bunny Threater also had a cover that was had similar space frame style construction to the main canopy and entrance arch.

Yeah, looks like they got a bulk deal on those giant tinker toy structures for BBL. They were cool, and surprisingly didn't pop up in other parks, just GA.

Magic Mountain also has a space frame structure for their main entrance. Through, its not a rounded arch, more like a pyramid.
