Remote Control 4x4 Trucks - Big Wheel Spotlight

Recommended Posts

I know it was a different time and would never happen today but it's really surprising to see that photo and see no fence of anything. Even if someone is watching their kids, a little kid could get away and run right into the ride area.


I tried the trucks one or two times. It was fun for something different but didn't think it was really something I needed to frequently go to. I preferred the boats near Jolly Roger that I usually tried at least once a season.

I have to believe this photo was taken just days after the park opened in 1974.  I think it's just another representation of the park opening before it was actually completely finished, with a number of rides not having cues.  The carousel was another ride that lacked any real barriers.

makes me wondered why didn't they put the abc garden in the old Great Lake grandstand area and maybe get the tilt n whirl from the former american adventures in the old rc trucks spot, maybe there's wasn't enough room for a tilt n whirl
