This is a poll to see what former/closing ride/attraction was the most popular. Would love to see everyone's input on this

Since I can't choose two, I'll just post that I would love to see the stage coach and the float trip return with exactly NO attempt at any updating.

In my mind and heart, I wish SDC were just what it was in the late '60s.

you are not alone palallin
I too am getting to old and sentimental and the direction of the parks current path is not to my taste at all.

my two cents

Bringing back Rube Dugan's is such a good idea that it's hard to believe it hasn't been done already. The park needs more indoor, unique attractions. There is a lot of new simulator technology out there, and I believe Vekoma or a similar company actually has a giant simulator theatre in their catalog.

I was extremely torn between BuzzSaw Falls and WaterWorks Waterboggan because I really miss both. I also miss Huck Finn's Hideaway and while I do wish it would come back, I want the other 2 more. I also kinda miss Splash Harbor, Tom Sawyer's Landing, Lost River of the Ozarks, and Geyser Gulch. FireHouse Play Place just isn't as good as Geyser Gulch was.

It would also be a good opportunity to add a new water feature to the park to go with it. The bottom area just hasn't been the same since they shrunk the lake so much.

I completely agree with that.  I also was torn between the 2 but eventually picked the WaterWorks Waterboggan because that's one of the first rides my wife and I rode together.

Gyser Gulch should come back at the resort.
