I am absolutely incensed at being educated about Australia by an American, but I often am. When we were in Glenelg in Adelaide a month or so ago, something was missing. I recall alluding to it in a post, but I wasn't quite sure what was missing. It was big. It was a wall. No one helped. Where was this thing I remembered from 1983? What was it? A kind of rock wall.
Well, it took Dina to get my cogs meshed, and it was Magic Mountain. Dina mentioned it today. I thought it was on Jetty Road or thereabouts, but it was bit further along the beach.
Magic Mountain was a small theme park. It was demolished in 2004, probably deservedly so, as was Adelaide's Marineland demolished.
In the 1930's, Glenelg had it's own Luna Park. It lasted only four years. Then the rides were disassembled and sent to Luna Park in Sydney.
That's very interesting.
In 1982, a new park was opened in the area. It was called Magic Mountain. Lord Wiki says this stayed open until 2004. It was well-liked by some...especially young people. It was disliked by others. They thought it was ugly.
That's it Dina, precisely what I remember.
