I agree about creepy, dilapitated, but there WERE glory days......rides such as the "Red Bug" (by the windmill at the bottom of the hill up to the Cliff House. The "Chute th Chutes", "Noah's Ark", The Airplane ride, the "Hey Dey"
& the Big Dipper, which for all it's seeming ricketyness
was a good ride. The only one of the latter day rides I liked was the short-lived Horse Derby over by Fulton St.
