If this idea had worked, we would have been dodging Model Ts by now!  By SDC count, this would be 1910.  What other luxuries would we be enjoying in park?

And now 25 years later they are touting the balloons as a new attraction. Creative advertising at its best.

I'm not on Facebook so I couldn't comment on the Gaslight Square Throwback Thursday so decided to revive this topic to post.  It's true Gaslight Square did not return in 1990 (thank God!)  An employee told us in '89 that Kenny Rogers was in talks to buy an interest in the City and convert it into a Riverfront-type theme park.  Thankfully that idea sank like a lead weight.  The same employee told us in '90 it was decided to keep the Ozarkian theme of the park and stay in the 1880s.  Duelist

My Wife Jan on Gaslight Square in 89. We courted that summer and wed in December. It worked for us!
