As we move forward this season it's a true pleasure to see the park performing so well. Our guests are happy and our employees are happy. That's the perfect scenario.

 

We are beginning to look into options for next year. As we enter the new decade, we are looking for something that uses cutting-edge technology.

 

As a member of the park board, we are asking you: what new attraction do you want to see next year?

 

I am eagerly awaiting your responses.

One of my favorite shots of the park. It showcases two-thirds of our coasters!

I'll leave you with this artistic shot of Heatwave's rear spike.

Awesome!

 

Heatwave looks incredibly realistic - would you mind if I asked you what custom scenery you used for the entrance gates at the stations?

 

 

I can't wait to see more of this park, and I really enjoy your updates!

Yeah, get an Arrow. They were incredibly popular around this time. Like I said...similar to Ninja @ SF: STL or a smaller version of Anaconda @ King's Dominion. Just make it on the smaller-ish side (like not 150 ft tall) and have multi-inversions (about 4 or 5). That'd be a good one.

1979, The park's fifth season!

 

I used custom scenery packs from NetOn2. Not all of the CS packs on the list were used, but you will need all of the ShyGuy, Vodhin, and DasMatze sets. The rest should (excluding Baffies stations) should be included with NetOn2.

Hello!

 

It's the later part of the season... these hot sticky late-July days seem to be the longest of the year. The guests are cranky as are the employees. But thankfully we have some activity going on in the park that's keeping everyone on their toes.

Wait a moment, this isn't the photograph you were looking for!

Ah, that's better. This large plot of land will soon be home to a rather large attraction.

Unfortunately we will be removing these restroom facilities to make way for the ride's entrance.

 

Stay tuned!

CHARLESTON - Charleston's very own Charleston Gardens Amusement Park brings cutting-edge amusement thrills to the table in 1980 with the addition of Gully River Rapids, a high-tech water adventure ride that will send families and thrill-seekers alike "over the waterfall". Guests' journies will begin as they board their round eight-seat raft that will traverse a winding river course that will send them under and over waterfalls, rapids, and whirlpools. The ride is one of only two in the nation, putting Charleston Gardens Amusement Park on the map for fun family thrills!

 

For the first time this year, Charleston Gardens Amusement Park will be offering a season passport, allowing families to visit the park year round for one low price. Please visit the Guest Relations building on opening day for more information.

 

Charleston Gardens Amusement Park is a Funtime Parks, Inc. property. Other properties include Geauga Lake and Darien Lake.

Today was Gully River Rapids' preview day. Season pass holders and members of the media were invited to the park to test out the new attraction. The park will officially open tomorrow. The weather is great and it's looking to continue over the weekend.

New signage and fresh paint don the entrance plaza buildings.

Gully River Rapids' station stands tall over "Gully Gulch".

We decided to offer lockers so that guests could secure their valuables because getting drenched on this ride is a guarantee!

Those who choose to take a journey down Gully River will pass through numerous rock formations and even a tunnel!

Watch out for the waterfall, it's a doozy!

A guest enters the Gully River Rapids queue dry. This must be his first time to ride!

Gully River Rapids is even more exciting to ride at night. You won't be quite sure which direction the water's coming from!

I hope to see you tomorrow at the grand opening!
