Great America 1996 Brochure

Paramount's Great America's big new attraction for 1996 was the Drop Zone Stunt Tower. One of the type of freefall towers that have been getting quite a bit of attention lately.

I wanted to share this brochure as a throw back to the Paramount years, and how they did things. So here we go.

I didn't know that Great America's Drop Zone was the tallest in the world the year it opened. Ya gotta love the images of people with their hair all flying up and stuff.

One thing that Cedar Fair did right when taking over these parks was bringing back their ice skating show. Here you can see that they were promoting their Paramount on Ice: Blockbusters! ice show.

Here is a little treat. A press image thing the park had for promoting Drop Zone. It compares their former drop ride, The Edge, to the new Drop Zone. Pretty cool. It gives some pretty detailed statistics for the ride as well. Intamin freefall lover rejoice.
