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??
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.
