  • Yes, I remember! I was about five and rode a live pony... it was attached to a pole and just went slowwwly around and around with other ponies but I didn't care. I went back once or twice when I was a kid, but it closed years ago.. so there is no going back now.
  • No, Palisades Park closed long ago.
  • It was in Okinawa, Japan and I think the place was called Expo??? Maybe??? No, I haven't returned to it since I am living in the U.S. now.
  • It was Riverview Park in Chicago! What a wonderful place it was!! I went back when I was about 21, but it has since closed down.
  • Disney World when I was 3, never been since.
  • Either Tweetsie Railroad or Carowinds. I LOVE both!!! Haven't been to Tweetsie in 7 years, though...
  • Excelsior Amusement Park MN. It was a great park. The roller coaster went out over the lake it was situated on, and I did go back many times over the years. Unfortunately, it's now closed.
  • 6 Flags, St. Louis, MO. No, i've visited the one in Maryland on a couple occasions though.
  • the Pike in long beach calif. Yes I went to it years later and it was pretty much the same though seemed dirty. Now I understand they tore it down!
  • It was Worlds of Fun(fist one to ever open, cant remember where). We were there at the grand opening and I was the first one through the gate! Have not been back since though.
  • Kings Island in Cincinnati.went as a 'GE employees appreciation day' Dad met up with all his co-workers(so we all went off to enjoy the rides) Went back many years in a row after that first time(back in the '70's)
  • Wow! Asberry Park, N.J. I even remember there was a ferris wheel that went out of a building. I was very, very young and too scared to go on it. I thought we were so lucky because we could walk there from our summer house in Bradley Beach. And, times as they were, my older brothers were allowed to take me without are parents coming. Now I will date myself, this was where my brothers took me to my first concert, Sha na na! All the lights from the rides were shining and the smells from all the different foods. There was the smell of the ocean and the warm air on our faces. We used to be able to walk barefoot on the boardwalk - so long as you can stand the needle later to get out the splinters. Those were memories I thought I had forgotten. My eyes are actually welled with tears. Thank you and the AB community for once again allowing me to remember something so wonderful from my childhood.
  • It was Opryland amusement park in Nashville. It was awesome. We went there almost every year from the time I was about 2 years old until I was in my early teens. Sadly, they closed it in 1997 and built a mall there in place of it. =(
  • King's Island (Ohio) And yes, we went back every year until we moved to Germany in 1982
  • If I remember correctly, it was Whalom Park, which was ironically located about 5 miles away from where I live right now. At the time, it was quite a ways from home. It no longer exists, unfortunately, it got torn down 2 or 3 years ago and they're building condos on it now.

  • Ocean View Amusement Park in Norfolk, VA. It had a great roller coaster. The park was long since destroyed.

  • Wish I could visit Palisades Park again--it's long gone--the city is still there, the park went to high-rise apartments in the 70's. Still get misty when I hear Freddy Cannon's "Palisades Park".
