Default Re: What famous people have you seen at SFOT?

I worked 2 different time frames at SFOT. This write up makes me feel OLD.. :-)

I worked the Big Bend for years. On our ride we had:

Ewell Gibbons - just a wild hickory nut

Bob Garrison - Dallas Cowboy

KC and some of the Sunshine band - a little trivia... the song "Shake Your Booty" was sung for the first time ever at their concert at the Music Mill Theater.

Olivia Newton John

And from the not so famous category --- Did you ever watch the movie Logan's Run? At the very end of the movie there is a girl that comes up and touches the old man's beard. That girl worked at SFOT on our day crew at the Big Bend. Her name at SFOT was Debbie Cox but the movie credits show her name as Ashley Cox. She came and rode the Big Bend after the movie came out and she had been transformed with a boob job, big hair and a totally Hollywood makeover. Her makeover included her California surfer 'dude' boyfriend.

My second stint with SFOT was in the late 80's. In the park was:

Tone Loc and a few of his band --- he may have been some super pop star but they were ride weenies...... weenies......

Debbie Gibson

Tiffany - I was working Shock Wave that day. Tiffany and her entourage and SFOT escort arrived and insisted that she wanted to ride in a ride all by herself. So we cleared a train and put her in the front. Righter after dispatch she started screaming her head off and her security guards rushed the console and demanded we let her off. The train was about to nose up the lift and the operator hit the panic stop to get her off. We had to wait on a supervisor + a mechanic with an override key to restart.

I am sure I am missing a few more but that is all I recall for now.
