Wish I had taken photos on my very first visit to the park in 1991. I was 11 and remember seeing the construction sites for Runaway Mine Train and Haunted House. I seem to remember a scale model of the train in the shop. Not sure though, it was ages ago. I also remember it was a school trip and weren't allowed to go on the black hole but allowed on everything else!
I do remember riding 1001 Nights on that day, was gutted when it left. I don't remeber riding Thunderlooper then (was it in the park in 91) but I do remember riding it in 1996.
Oh and interesting stat - Nemesis opned on my 14th birthday - 19th March 1994. I share my Bday with Nemmy! How cool!
