So since Paradise Pier, as we know it, is going away ... I thought it might be nice to take a look back at the Paradise Pier that was.
Paradise Pier during the day
And at night
When Lilo and Stitch came out, they had a meet and greet and luau near where the Maliboomer is
The wall near Paradise Pier has had some different pictures over the years
This was one of the earliest things in Paradise Pier to go. They also had a Golden Zephyr one. (couldn't find the picture)
An Avalon Cove sign still exists to this day
The rest of these signs are sure to go soon
These lights sure have had their share of critics
In October of 2002 they had an Angels Victory Celebration after they won the World Series over the San Francisco Giants.
In January of 2004, they brought the Tower of Terror Rose Parade float to the Amphiteatre area
During the X-games they had a skateboard/bike ramp in paradise pier
The Cove Bar has ALWAYS been a popular hang out, even in 2002 you can see a familiar face.
And of course, Wolfgang Puck didn't last long, but Ariel's Grotto has been around for awhile now.
New Years Eve is always hopping in Paradise Pier
Hope you enjoyed.
If you have more paradise pier/memories to share, feel free to. (I know I'm lacking night pictures)
