Comments: The last time I was at Legend City was for a concert. Jackson Brown & Jimmy Buffet, I think. We walked through the vacant park, we had to sneak past some barriers, but it was so sad that it was no longer functioning as an amusement park. Hubby is a native & had been there often, Ive only been there a couple of times.
P.S. I miss Wallace & Ladmo, too!

Comments: I loved Legend City. Don't know why they let it go. I know it's hot here in summer, but seems like they could open it in the fall, winter and spring and still be it operating.They needed lots of trees for shade. I wish I was super rich. I would open up another park for all to enjoy here in are beautiful city. We need some entertainment. Not much to do here in the valley. Miss Legend City :((.

I seem to remember that they were going to move it out to Firebird Lake, after Compton Terrace moved there i heard nothing about it. I would go again if they brought it back, i dont care for the fair. I enjoyed reading the comments here, thank you all for the memories!

The older brother of one of my childhood friends who lived behind us worked there. I thought he was so handsome and was really cool because he worked there, was around 1970.

Comments: I was born in '61 in Phoenix, and while looking at the photos of the rides was very confused at my own memories?! Maybe my mom didn't take me to LC when I was young-I don't know, but I have NO memory of alot of the boat rides, the sky ride, the cars?! I remember broken down rides (lost Dutchman) and rides that were closed and more of the carnival/fair rides. I remember that huge roller coaster...something Mouse?! I LOVED that ride and it was probably to blame for my love of the thrill of coasters to this day! lol I lost my dad at age 8 and things may have been too tight for me to go when I was younger and LC was in it's glory....I saw enough of the "end" to feel bad each time I went and witnessed the deterioration as there wasn't money for upkeep. Strange how we just kept going though, lol! Thanks for this site! D. Angle

Comments: I worked at LC from 76-78. This was the best job any highschool kid could ever wish for. Many of my girlfriends work there too. We would go out afterwork for pizza at Aurelios in Scottsdale or to Red Devil in Phx. Those were great times. I grew up less than a mile from LC and spent many of my birthday celebrations there. We didn't care if it was July, we had a great time no matter how hot and muggy it was. Sharing these memories with my son about LC made it much easier using this site. Thank you for keeping LC memory alive for us big kids.

Comments: Back in the summer of 1966, I was the Music Director of
KRUX and we helped to promote the Smash Back to School Blast that was held at
Legend City. Lesley Gore, who wrote and recorded It's My Party was our
headliner. She arrived at Sky Harbor. In front of the terminal were a couple
of vehicles and a Limo for her. My car was there too. A brand new 1966 Bright
Yellow Corvette. I parked my car behind the limo there in the front of the
terminal. When she came out, she was told the Limo was for her. It didn't take
long for her to say, I will go in that car! Pointing at my corvette. No one
argued with her. I didn't mind a bit. So in Lesley Gore got into the passenger
seat with KRUX Good Guy Norm Seeley driving her out to Legend City. I don't
know how she got around after the show, but from that day forward, my car was
referred to as The Lesley Gore Vette. -- Norm Seeley (former Music Director KRUX

Thanks to who ever put this site together, great job !
Date: 3/21/2009 Time: 10:15:21 PM
this certainly brought me back to my childhood! I spent many weekends hanging
out at Legend City with my best friend David. This park had huge influences on
our lives as it kept us out of a lot of trouble. I can remember riding the Lost
Dutchman Mine ride over and over again. I remember those days when Wallace and
Ladmo would perform and they would have free admission in addition to the
possibility of winning a prize! That was the true Phoenix and this site should
be preserved forever. Thank you so much for taking me back to found memories!

Dad transported us from rural Iowa to build and work at Legend City in the early 60s. Legend City was my brothers my sister and my home away from home for several years. Incredible place to be a teen in the 60s. What a great place to grow! I would also like to apologize to anyone whos River Ride I may have ruined by memorizing the spiel and rudely saying the spiel before the River Boat Captain. You may find comfort in knowing that Dad banned me from the River Ride for 2 weeks. My partner in crime and best friend, Nancy Tompkins, where are you? Find me at lesliekosta comcast.net.

Comments: This is a walk down memory lane for an old 59 year old kid from Iowa. My dad and family moved to Arizona in 1961 and help build and run Legend City until the fall of 1964. It was sad to see such a fine place have the financial problems it did but we had no idea it remained in operation until 1983. During the building I remember helping with the cement work for the pads the rides sat on. I was only 12 or 13 at the time but dad took me to work a few times. Later after the park opened, I went there many times and knew almost every inch of the place. My father was the maintenance foreman after the place opened and later become Rides Manager. He has lots of good memories of the place and the people who worked there including lots of kids from ASU. Many of the rides for the park came from a Kiddy Land Park in Kansas City, Missouri. At an even younger age I went to Kansas City a few times and rode those rides before they were moved to Legend City. I'm sure that many of the folks who visited the Park back in those Early days loved it and the people that worked there loved it too. They were exciting times and deserve the time and effort you have put into this web site. Thanks, Randy Schenck and father, Ron Schenck

This site sure has taken me back there!
We used to have a gunfight at the town in the back of the lot and then shoot outs on the train. Sometimes we would stack tumbleweeds on the tracks and set fire to them so we could rob the payroll on the train.
Those were times I truly miss and your site took me back there, THANKS!

Comments: Thanks for creating and maintaining this site. I didn't go to Legend City per se all that much but I did go to lots of shows at Compton Terrace. Thanks for sharing the memories, all of you who have posted here over the last several years.

Comments: Looks like it was a great place. I am particularly interested in pictures, parts, and info about the Blakely Cars

Comments: I so remember Legend City and was devastated when it closed. Thank you for creating this site with so many great memorabilia for the walk down memory lane. Well done!

Comments: When I was in 9th grade, my friends and I washed cars one Saturday at a local gas station to get enough money to go to Legend City Amusement Park. We had a blast and this was to be 1 of the only times I was able to go before it closed up. I am now 45 years old and still remember that event in my life.

Comments: Legend City is solely responsible for my fear of heights!!! I got stuck at the top of the Ferris wheel in 1972 when I was just 6...the wind was blowing and it was almost dusk. Havent gotten on a FW since. Still, I wouldn't trade my memories of this place for anything!!!! I remember seeing so many concerts there in the early 80's...the Go Go's, AC DC, Def Lepard. LC is the source for so many happy memories from both my childhood and my teen years!!! It is only too bad that it wasn't around for my daughter to enjoy and to create memories for herself! LC...you are sorely missed!!!

Comments: Spent some of my best times with friends there. Our parents would drop us off and away we would go running for the rides and flirting with boys.
Thanks for the site, it brought back some really fun memories. Judy
