    I don't know, maybe cause it was only 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide. All's I know is I was looking at a pic of me on the teacups from '03 and there was the lighthouse in the background. I was just at DL this week and didn't see the lighthouse, my question is.....What up that??

    Hmmm, I would be interested to know if this was true and when it happened- That thing has been there forever and I am definitely curious as to why it would be removed.

    Was it an old ticket booth? Like that corner mushroom was at Alice In Wonderland?

    They may have removed it to give it a touch up in the paint shop .

    What do you want to bet they are painting the top gold? LOL

    Or even better, making the light in the top work again. Its been a long time since I have seen it shine at night.

    I wonder if it suffered the same fate as Captain Hook's tuna salad-serving pirate ship and Switzer falls .... death by termites.

    Sometimes I wonder if Orkin or Dale Dribble needs to throw a big 'ole tent over the whole park and gas out those little buggers before something terrible happens. Hey, maybe they could do that May 4th ........

    As far as I understand, the ticket booths like the mushroom at alice were just wood frames with chicken wire and stucco, and over the years they have had to add some concrete patch work. I could be wrong, but upon close inspection of them when I went last they seemed to be nothing more than stucco. Historically amusement parks like coney island really only made "temporary" or more fanciful shaped buildings out of stucco and wire on a frame so it would make sense.

    They still do it sometimes now, but use "gunnite" instead which is stronger than stucco.
