I was less than 10 years old and don’t remember much of it. My main memory is of bumper cars. I recently found the Legend City website with all kinds of photos and it brings the memories back. The Lost Dutchman mine and the Legend City Rail Road all come to mind now.
Wallace & Ladmo performed at Legend City. A icon for kids growing up in the valley during their 36 year run, making them the longest running daily show in history. They aired on Channel 5, the first TV station in Phoenix. I watched them every morning before going to school and saw every singe Tom & Jerry cartoon they ran. Ladmo (Ladimir Kwiatkowski) died in 1995 thus ending the show. I might have even been on that show once, but can’t recall.
There’s been rumors for a long time that another theme park was going to open near Phoenix but nothing built yet.
