Haven't been to the Universal Haunt, but I hear good things. Maybe this year.

I like 6 flags better myself but I don't know if they do anything like Knotts Scary Farm. Just don't go on the weekend or the place is packed.

I'm a roller coaster fan. As a kid I got to ride on the old one at the Pike in Long Beach. It went over the ocean, swayed, & leaned the wrong way around the curves. It the was the scariest ride of my life. Ghost Rider at Knotts & Psyclone at Magic Mountain have been the closest to feeling similar. I think Psyclone is also gone now.

Since you remember the Pike, you must remember POP?

(Pacific Ocean Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

We had some great times there as well!

No, I never made it to POP. I was a kid, & my folks seemed to hang out further south. The Pike was a regular for us. I remember the big wood roller coaster, a house of mirrors, Laugh in the Dark, The Rotor, a smaller steel roller coaster called The Wild Mouse, & what seemed like a very high double ferris wheel. I was probably 9 when they tore down the big coaster & my folks quit going.

Did you ever hear the story of the stuffed mummy outside the funhouse? I was told that when they removed it, they found out it was an actual human mummy!

I just confirmed using snopes.com that the mummy was Elmer, an outlaw from the early 1900's!

Wow. I've never heard that before. I just read that Snopes page about it. I wonder if anyone inside knew.

I grew up going to Magic...i lived about 15-20 minutes away... I haven't been there in about 10 yrs....

Never been to Raging Waters.....

Disney and Knotts...I visit 1-2 times a year.....

Lego Land was pretty neat....

I finally made it inside Universal Studios (2 yrs ago)....though CityWalk was a frequent spot to hang out when I was growing up....
