I have some relatives whose last visit to SFMM was in the early '80s. When I mention that park to them, they usually ask something along the lines of, "Do they still have that roller coaster that goes upside down?" It's funny how much of an impact Revolution had on people back then, to where that's the only thing they remember about SFMM after not visiting in 30+ years.
I was at Nickelodeon Universe earlier today and while I was riding Spongebob Rock Bottom Plunge, the person sitting next to me said “This ride hangs you over the edge like the one at Cedar Point in Iowa”.

Monster's drop is pretty similar to Spongebob's if that's what he was talking about, so he wasn't necessarily wrong, but Iowa has too many cities with "Cedar" in the name. I was there a couple months for work a while back and never did get down which Cedar was which between Cedar Falls and Cedar Rapids. Although Adventureland is in Des Moines, nowhere near either, so who knows.
