Planet Coaster Parks / Sycamore Grove Amusement Park
« on: June 18, 2018, 02:35 PM »
Hey guys,

anyone happens to know about the old Sycamore Grove Amusement Park? The Park had an odd history of closings and reopenings throughout the years and to this date is closed up once more.
I must have visited the park in younger years because I have found
an old brochure with a bunch of other stuff indicating that we visited the park sometime in the 1990's.

That sparked my interest and so I started looking up stuff on the park on the internet and came across a couple of pictures which must have been taken in the very late 60's. The signature ride since early times was the "Shootin' Star", also there was a "Bobsleds" sidefriction kind of rollercoaster, although the owners often received criticism for the wilder interpretation of what those rides could do.

From left to right: Bobsleds, Shootin' Star (in the back), Zipper, Fireball and Weisshorn in the front

Hyperspin ride to the left, Haunted Castle, Bobsleds and Shootin' Star and the Zipper. This is the old park area.

The lines were always long at the Shootin' Star and the Bobsleds.

There was always an uplifting atmosphere, people were having a good time and enjoying an evening out at the park.

Hey there,

so here I am :) None of you will know me, I may have released a Park or two on in it's time (2010ish, when CTRs and PEP became a thing) and have played Tycoon games basically since Theme Park. Years later I find less and less time to sit down and play, so if I do, I wanna share it with someone and get better at it, and to the best of my humble knowledge help others to get better too. There are so many great creative, inspiring  minds involved in the Theme Park Simulation Niché that I couldn't leave it alone for over 20 years.

So there's to that, let's have it for Peace, Love and Rollercoasters!
