Mystery Photo #1

Anyone care to take a guess as to which ride or attraction is on the back of this flatbed truck? Only one guess at a time!
(This is an old photo so don't expect another new attraction for 2008!)

I would go with support columns for the Scream Machine?

I thought of the Sarajevo Bobsleds, but the white car looks like an 88 Skylark. Scream Machine.

Ooh, I think I may know.... Is this a part that isn't visible in the completed ride?

Hmm. Not visible in the completed ride......possibly not in it's finished paint scheme too.....
the white car could be much older than an 89, so that doesn't help. Since this is in the Goodtime Alley section,We're running out of rides for that district unless the ride in question was not in Goodtime Alley. If it was in Goodtime Alley, it must have been after the arcade fire. Unless this ride is pre-1979, I would have to go with.....
The Joust-about. My final answer, Regis.

No, sorry, sorry, it's not the Joust-a-Bout! sad.gif

Don't let the Goodtime Alley posting mislead you. The only reason I put it in here was because this is just a little game that fit the theme!

This ride or attraction could be anywhere in the park!

I'm pretty sure I know what it is (since I think I've seen a picture of it when it was installed). But I won't guess....people would think I cheated.

Thanks for the heads up on the guessing Harry smile.gif

he small support pieces around the cylinder are the things throwing me for a loop smile.gif I must think harder on this one!



Is this possibly a piece to a completed Batman: The Ride?

If this helps, those pieces are NOT attached to the cylinder!

OK, I did think that it was confined to Goodtime Alley, that's why I kept naming rides from there. Does that mean I can still try?


The Little Wheel?


How about a "hot vs cold" clue if the named ride is within say 1/3 the park's length from the actual ride?

It's not from erUPtion! It's not from the Little Wheel! But it IS from Houdini's Great Escape !!! Nice work everyone !!!



I did have to crop a clue or two off the photo so you didn't know the timeframe or year! Watch for photos and information on the assembly of Houdini in a future Spotlight! Hope you enjoyed the game! Watch for another one soon!

Mystery Photo #2

Here are some hints:

- It's no longer in the park
- It had nothing to do with Fright Fest

Anyone know what's pictured in this photo?
