It is time to go "Retro" once again and today we are traveling back to the summer of 1976 as we join a family enjoying the park.
Thanks to Bob Gilinsky for the photos!
|A large scale western productions was still offered at the Great Arena.|
|The sheer grandeur of the Super Tee Pee was always an impressive site.|
|Musical groups and a magician show were part of the 1976 entertainment lineup at the Bandstand on the Lake, today located in Bugs Bunny National Park.|
|Fortune Festival, the predecessor of today's Boardwalk, was the park's central games area.|
|The Flying Wave offered high speed flight back in 1976 compared to a much slower spinning experience in later years.|
|In 1976, the Big Fury was still the wildest coaster at the park.|
|The Fun Fair section of the park offered a wide variety of rides to flip and toss guests including the Matterhorn, Wild Rider (originally name Wild Flower), the Rotor, the Enterprise, and the Schwabinchen.|
|For a brief time the Dream Street Sky Ride station was painted bright orange.||The darkness of night was illuminated with thousands of miniature lights found both on the buildings and almost all the rides.|
