Default Rides you worked no longer there

Everyone list off the rides you've worked at that are no longer there

I'm not listing the little kiddie rides.

Spinnaker
Spindletop
Air Racer
Good Times Depot (eh... it's listed as a 'ride' on the SFOT website)
Cliffhanger
Flashback
Chute Out
Speelunkers Cave
Bumper Cars (That IS gone, isn't it? Or was it just shut down temporarily?)
Big Ferris

I think that's it.

If we're talking about rides where we were permanently assigned:

Cliffhanger
Old Texas Giant (c'mon, it's not the same)
Air Racer

Others that I worked at least once:

Spinnaker
Good Times Depot
Flashback
Bumper Cars
Chute Out
Casa Magnetica (it was run by rides when I worked it)
Right Stuff

...and the granddady of all closed rides: LaSalle's Adventure ("River"). I only worked there a couple of times. But I was so fond of the ride that I was depressed when they closed it. I've always thought Rapids was lame. It was like seeing your childhood home being bulldozed.

Anytime I'm in San Antonio at the Riverwalk and I get on one of those boats I think, "...and as we leave the dock with a [I]blinding[I]burst of speed...keep your arms and legs inside the boat...you just might need to use them to swim ashore..."

I was just speaking of if you worked a shift there.

I didn't count Casa. Good point.

"My" Rides:

Flashback, Chute Out, Bumper Cars (yeah, still there but not open), (when it was called) Wildcatter, and old Texas Giant, Tweety Bubbles and the next-door air jump thing, the kiddie boats, and the kiddie trucks. Maybe the kiddie train too; I haven't seen an actual train on it in many years now.

Trained:

I think I got "trained" at Air Racer, but never actually took the test, since that was the year it never opened; and then Missle Chaser which took its place the following year. I think that's it.

I worked at the rock climbing wall for a while but I worked in retail, front gate, and season pass so I never worked at any other rides. The rockwall was taken out a few years after I left SFOT.

Are you sure it wasn't because you kept trying to eat the fruit?
