Now that yahoo is in the overhead image game, here's a pic from Kennywood. You really don't know the dates of these photos, but what's that on the thunderbolt? Tunnel? Tarp? Huh!?!?!? You can see this is off season...

It's weird, places like Busch Gardens Africa haven't been update in a long time. (Sheikra isn't there, neither is any prep work), yet places like Chicago have been updated pretty recently.

Well if you look at the top 50 US cities and see where Chicago ranks in comparison to Tampa, you can understand why the data for Tampa hasn't been updated recently:

 

New York, N.Y.

Los Angeles, Calif.

Chicago, Ill.

Houston, Tex.

Philadelphia, Pa.

Phoenix, Ariz.

San Antonio, Tex.

San Diego, Calif.

Dallas, Tex.

San Jose, Calif.

Detroit, Mich.

Indianapolis, Ind.

Jacksonville, Fla.

San Francisco, Calif.

Columbus, Ohio

Austin, Tex.

Memphis, Tenn.

Baltimore, Md.

Fort Worth, Tex.

Charlotte, N.C.

El Paso, Tex.

Milwaukee, Wis.

Seattle, Wash.

Boston, Mass.

Denver, Colo.

Google doesn't have hi-res images for Knoebels, but here's a circa-1993 picture from Microsoft's free version of Terraserver:

You can barely see Phoenix (station, above-ground tunnel, covered brake run, and part of the first turn-around), and I assume the obvious steel coaster is Whirlwind but I've never seen it in person.

I know I am bringing up an old thread. Google maps is a fine way to peek at a park but I have found something better. Its called local.live.com; they have something called the birds eye view that it simply stunning.

 

 

Here for your viewing pleasure is Cedar Point!

 

Go to: local.live.com/

 

Under (enter city, address, or landmark) type in Cedar Point, switch to birds eye view and enjoy.

What I love about the birds eye view on live.com is that you can sometimes get a look at the same area durring different time periods, depending on what image loads. For instance, there is an image of Knotts Berry Farm with Silver bullet and there is also a picture taken when Windjammer was still in place.

There are many more so please feel free to add more maps of your favorite parks and stay tuned for more maps coming at Six Flags New England and The Great Escape!! Thank You!

 

Since this thread was similar to an older thread we had on Google Maps, I have merged the two. Feel free to post anything about parks found on Google Maps/Earth or Google Street View in this thread. Thanks!
