The Eagles Flight stations were Shangri-La (at the top of the mountain, the station still there but not used); El Dorado (where Freefall is); and Galaxy (where the Superman tower is).

 

Ninja didn't replace anything, but its station was the upper station for The Dragon, a slow transportation ride that took you from the big station behind Spin Out/Soda Shack up to the top.

 

What was the original name of the restaurant that is now the Laughing Dragon Pizza Co. and what type of restaurant was it?

 

Eric

 

A couple things that I can add to this... Sometime if you're in the Ninja Station look at the ground and you can see where the platform used to turn.

 

The upper station of Eagles Flights (near Ninja) is actually where we staged a Halloween show. A small bit of trivia, can you name the last date that Eagles Flight was dispatched? I can tell you that it is indeed recored on the control panel for the ride inside of the Shangri-La station.

 

Finally... I believe the restaurant was called Seasons (could be wrong) and it was a cheap steak house.

I thought Bleep was the chick, Bloop was the dude, Blip was the baby, and the King was the...King?

 

There's also another troll costume in what used to be the theater (now a break room/storage room) in Spllikin Corner (now Psyclone Bay).

Laughing Dragon was originally called the Four Winds Steakhouse.

 

I think a better question is how slow the Granny Grand Prix cars go.

 

In 1980, there was the Gold Rusher, Mountain Express, Revolution, and Colossus. Oh, and the Wile E. Coyote Coaster.

 

I've noticed the former turntable in the Ninja station. I think there are still a couple of remnants of the old Dragon track, aren't there? Or did SFMM rip the rest of it out when Ninja went in? I never think to look for it.

^Dragon Track still runs about half way down the hill from the top, and a little bit of the way up the hill from the bottom station (which is still there as well). Basically whatever didn't have to be removed for Ninja's construction is still there.

 

In fact, one of the ways an operator can walk down to Jet Stream's drop is by going through the Ninja station and taking a "path" that is made up of the old track.

^good job..I forgot that Grinder Gearworks was once Gordon Gearworks!

 

The original Circus Wheel was indeed a Chance Trabant. It was removed during the early stages of Goliath construction and the Jolly Roger (Tilt a Whirl) was moved into that space...it just so happened to keep the name as Circus Wheel.

 

If you get a chance to watch the opening sequence of Step by Step they show Patrick Duffy in front of the former Circus Wheel and Susan Sommers in front of what was then called Turbo. It also shows that big tent like structure they used to have in the middle of Colossus County Fair.

Dude, I loved the Enterprise, removed for a queue. Why didn't they just move it, Z-Force too.

 

Goes to show you how long they have been losing more then gaining.

 

MM used to be a family park and was so much easier to get around.

 

Can anyone name all the different transportation rides there used be to at MM.
